This exceptional unsigned pair of carvings were done by noted folk carver Tom Brown (Pleasant Hill, TN. 1884-1947). The man is just under 6" tall and is wearing a blue shirt and has patches on his knees. The woman is just under 5.5" tall and is wearing a red dress with white lace collar and buttons. She has an old repair on one foot. Both carvings show nice detail and wonderful patina. Brown's carvings at auction have sold in the past for $500-600 dollar a piece. And out of all the records I have found, there are only two examples of the woman and no examples of the man. You will love absolutely love this pair as part of your collection.

When we saw these four hand carved and painted doll heads we knew we had to have them. We are in no way doll collectors (although we do collect Teddy bears), but the look and folk art appeal of these heads could not escape us. I am making an educated guess that they are from around the 1880's and originate from Germany. There are 3 woman and one man, the tallest is 5.5" and the shortest is 4" tall. They were expertly carved from pine and beautifully painted. You can see in the close-up pictures the rubs and small losses on their faces but in real life they display great with a true antique presence. Selling as a set of 4. More photos on Rubylane.com
Here is a nice size 19th Century pine trencher in old red paint that comes out of our personal collection. The bowl measures 25.5" x 12.5" x 5" tall and is in excellent condition with expected signs of use. The pairs of wooden dumbells in the one photo are available separately. Please click on Rubylane.com above for more photos.
This is an out-of-the-ordinary primitive pine foot warmer in the original red paint. The all wood warmer has four 3 leaf clover cutouts in the top and is constructed with square nails. The interior is chard from use as shown. The original tin that protected the wood from burning is mostly gone and the tin box that would have held the hot coals is missing. These foot warmers were often used in carriages on cold nights in the 19th C. to keep the passengers feet warm, an idea that never gets old. Measures 9" x 9" x 7.5" tall.

This 24.5" long primitive washboard has a smooth side that may have had double duty as a mangle (bed smoother). At some point, someone put a beautiful finish on the hand-hewn board which has mellowed with age. There are some old, inactive worm holes and some loss on one end as shown but the condition is still very good. Weighs almost 4 pounds.
This pair of oil on tin portraits of a husband and wife were found in Ohio many years ago and date to the mid-1800's. The portraits are in their original wooden frames that are highly detailed with a leaf and berry design and are painted with the original gold paint. There has been some in painting, mainly on the man's black coat and woman's black dress. Suitable for any setting, this pair of paintings have a somewhat primitive look and the frames are outstanding. 18 3/4" x 14 3/4" including frame. More photos on Rubylane.com
This 19th C. oval wallpaper box features gray, green and brown decoration. The box measures 11.5" x 9" x 7" tall and is in good, clean condition. There are green paper strips someone glued to the underneath of the lid at some point to reinforce the rim. This would make a reasonably priced addition to your country collection. Please email us for inquiries on this or any other items we have listed. More photos on Rubylane.com

This 10" tall glass garden cloche dates to the early part of the 1900's. It appears to have been hand blown with an applied solid glass knob on the top. The bottom opening measures 7 3/4" in diameter. There are a few in-the-making minor imperfections but overall the cloche is in excellent condition.
Furniture builders of the 18th and 19th Centuries would sometimes build miniatures of their full-sized work to show perspective customers examples of what was possible. This is one of those in the form of a turned-leg one drawer farm table. We made this incredible find close to 30 years ago and are offering it now for the very first time. The table measures 17" wide x 11 3/4" deep x 9" tall and is constructed of Northern White Pine and small square nails. The legs are mortised into the apron and the single board top is nailed on with countersunk square nails that are puttied with plaster of Paris. The drawer has a wood knob and is expertly mortised into the apron. It has simple joints and is secured with square nails. The table retains the original dark varnish and is in overall excellent condition. The top has some expected distressing and the original plane marks. It sits beautifully on a counter or table top.

This late 19th C. hardwood splint gathering basket measures almost 24" tall and 9" in diameter. The basket features the original green paint and three carved wooden handles (lost to one). The basket is in overall very good condition with natural aging and wear to the paint. This is similar in form to an eel trap but the bottom is closed. A rare and interesting form great for hanging. Northeastern US origin.
This rare oval New England Windsor stool dates to around 1840 and retains an old dark green painted surface with a dark gold stripe around the edge of the seat. There is also a very thin light yellow stripe associated with the gold stripe. The stool measures 12 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 9 3/4" tall and it is very sturdy and in excellent condition.

Dating from the late 1800's, this folky carved wooden shoe has a lift top with a storage compartment inside. The shoe retains the original old worn black and bronze paint. This nicely detailed and shaped box makes for an interesting conversation piece. Rare item!
This 19th C. Stoneware crock has six distinctive blue decorations around the circumference. I have seen this same decoration on several small cake crocks that were attributed to Wingender Pottery of Haddonfield, NJ. This is the only tall crock I have seen with this decoration. Similar decorations were used by C. Crolius of New York City and J. Pruden of Perth Amboy, New Jersey. This particular example stands 10 1/4" tall and is in excellent condition with no damage and no repairs.
This pair of American made Indian clubs are decorated with original red painted stripes and mahogany stain and date to the late 1800's. Used as exercise weight back in Victorian Days, the clubs are each marked 3 lbs. each and stand 18 3/4" tall. There is normal wear and distressing but overall they are in very good condition. These clubs make a great display in any folk art collection.
This small oval storage box has staved wood construction and dates to the mid- 1800's. It has an outstanding red and black painted surface with hints of blue on the bentwood bands. Measuring 3.5" x 6" x 5 1/4" tall, the box is in superb condition. There are markings underneath and under the lid in pencil and paint. Continental in origin, the original use of this box is unknown, but in today's antique market, it certainly makes for an unusual and desirable item. Note: Red is not as vibrant as in photos.
This 19th C. coiled rye grass basket has two handles and a footed base. It measures 20" in diameter and 7.5" tall to the top of the handles. This exceptional basket hails from Pennsylvania and is in excellent condition.
