Gloria N. Greenwald Antiques & Folk Art

Gloria N. Greenwald | 276 Brush Hill Road, Litchfield, Ct., 06759 | 860.567.2791 | gloriagreenwald@gmail.com

We have been dealing in early 18th & 19th century country antiques and folk art since 1989. The major Americana antique shows of the Northeast were a focus for many years. Having retired from the show circuit in 2006, we now concentrate on selling privately and online. We deal primarily in country smalls including painted boxes and bowls, lighting, iron and tinware, and baskets. We look for makers who understood form and function, even when handcrafting rather primitive objects. Our preference is for pieces that please the eye AND perform a function.


A RARE 19th c., SHAKER SMALL MAPLE MEASURE

This is a rare, Enfield Ct. Shaker Community, small measure in wonderful early patina. Please note the extraordinary brass tacks closing the straight seam, with all the iron points in place, it is in excellent antique condition. It has maple sides with a pine bottom, typical of the Shaker construction. The first one that I have seen in many years. Compare the construction to non- shaker wooden measures. A delightful size at 6" dia x 3 1/4" h. Additional photos are available.
