This 19th C. oil painting on artist board of a horse with blinders is dated 5-20-87. The back of the painting has an old obituary for the artist Charles Fromuth, a Frenchman who lived in Philadelphia and studied under Thomas Eakins. Most of Fromuth's paintings are of harbor scenes. This horse painting is an estate item and I don't know if this is an accurate attribution but the style of the artwork does suggest that Fromuth painted it. The small painting measures 8.5" x 6.5" overall in its painted olive drab frame. It has been lightly cleaned and is in fine condition.
Dating from the second half of the 19th Century, this reverse painted checkerboard measures just under 5 3/4" square.

This very rare stoneware pickle baby rattle has a salt glaze and dates to the early 20th Century if not older. It is in excellent condition with minor crazing and kiln imperfections. Measuring 4" long, the pickle would be a unique addition to any collection!
This small folkart house from the early 1900's is constructed of wooden cheese boxes and tiny brads. The one of a kind house was possibly constructed by someone's father as a present. The house features front steps, a front door, 10 windows and a chimney all in the original green, cream and red paint. There were cloth curtains covering the windows from the inside but they are mostly lost by now. Measuring 6" tall x 6" wide x 6.5" deep, the house does not take up much space and displays beautifully.

This 19th C. folkart poplar corner shelf is constructed with square nails and features hand cut profiles of people's heads at the top of the backboards.
