This circa 1890-1910 politically incorrect trade sign was presumably used as a reminder for your groceries. It is painted on a single pine board that split and was joined back together nicely at some point in its life. Measuring 35" x 11.5" x 3/4" the professionally painted sign has excellent colors (red, white, black, and grey) and wonderful graphics. There is distressing and wear consistent with age. Great piece of Americana!
This large redware loaf pan with yellow slip decoration measures 15" x 11" x 2" tall and is in "as found" condition. After about 175 years in existence, the loaf pan shows its age with small rim chips, slip loss, knife marks and a 3" hairline from the edge. Nonetheless, the coggled edge oval pan has good color and displays well. Priced accordingly.

This classic 19th C. wood and glass barn lantern measures about 9" tall not including the bail handle. The lantern has an access door for lighting the candle that has wire hinges and closure. There are two rails, one on each side, that have old green paint. A few minor worm holes can be seen in the wood. In overall good condition, this lantern will accent any window or beam in your house.
This hardwood and wrought iron floor standing rush lamp dates from the 18th Century. Rarely seen, these lamps would be used by burning rushes harvested from the marshes. This lamp stands 36" tall on three iron legs with flattened feet. They are secured by an iron strap and square nails. The rush holder is iron with a tin piece attached to the end to hold the flammable reeds (rush in photo included). There is an additional hook on the side. This is an early authentic lighting device in fine condition.

This rare and early open tin cup was used as a primitive lighting device in the 18th and 19th Centuries. Measuring 3.5" tall, the lamp is in very good, untouched condition with an old crusty surface and traces of green paint (mostly seen underneath). Priced to sell.
This American circa 1900 game board is yellow pine and retains its original red and dark green paint. The hefty board measures 32" long x 15" wide and has a 1 1/4" thick molding.

This original 18th C. wrought iron table lamp was used as a whale oil betty lamp and a candle lamp, depending on which fuel was available. The two burners will slide up and down to the desired height. Standing almost 17" tall, the tri-footed lamp is painted black over an oxidized surface. This is a wonderful period lamp with a great look.
This early hand turned treen humidor stands 11" tall and is in excellent condition. The lidded vessel has an old nut brown surface with natural wear and distressing. Note that the the knob is slightly crooked on the top giving the humidor extra charm
Standing on a tripod base, this wrought iron double pan lamp could sit on a table or hang. Measuring about 18" tall, the lamp has an old, oxidized surface. There is a minor loss on the rosette above the base as shown. The way the legs are riveted it shows the primitive nature of the early device. Also, the two sides of the pan are asymmetrical- on side has spots for three wicks, while the other only one. This is a very primitive survivor of the 1700's.
This 19th C. wooden butter print has a hand carved daisy design in a very desirable half round form. The hardwood handle is fixed with two square nails. Measuring almost 7" wide, the print is in good condition, showing overall wear from years of use.
This circa 1830 dome top pine document box retains its original black over red paint decoration and hails from New England. The box is constructed with dovetailed joints, square nails and cotter pin "snipe" hinges. There is a working lock and key that was a replacement during Victorian times. Measuring 12" wide x 7" tall x 7 3/8" deep this little box is in good condition with nice honest paint.
This early tin and glass ship's lantern is in very good condition and has an interesting diamond and star design. It was once fired by whale oil but the burner is long gone. The bottom is still present and easily snaps in and out for lighting a candle. Standing 18" tall, this lantern would be great for hanging in a window or from a beam. Great patina and form!

This large and beautifully paint decorated 19th C. wooden tazza or pedestal measures 9 1/2" tall and a slightly oval 15 1/2" x 14 3/4" diameter on the top. The base retains its original paint decoration of red, gold, black and green. The top is natural wood that was turned on a hand lathe and is fixed with a wooden peg. There are a few minor edge chips and age cracks which do not detract from the appearance or value of this incredible find. Attributed to Bali, circa 1850. This would make a wonderful display for stone fruit or the like. More photos on Rubylane.com
This late 19th C. or early 20th C. hollow body Lesser Scaup (Bluebill) decoy is attributed to H.V. Shourds (1861-1920) of Tuckerton, New Jersey. The bird was a working decoy with several old working repaints and restoration. There are a few places showing evidence of buckshot (bill and tail). The bird has a great form and should be considered for acquisition to your antique decoy collection. 15" long. More photos on Rubylane.com

This small 1890's swing handle basket Taghkanic (sometimes Taconic) hails from upstate New York. Made by hermits out of native woven ash, oak and hickory, these baskets are prized by collectors. This particular basket measures only 6" tall with the handle down. It has a nice patina and an exaggerated pushed-up bottom. Excellent condition.
This early pine shoeshine box retains the original robin's egg blue paint and dates from around 1910-20. The primitive nature of this box belies its sturdiness and functionality. But the real story on this item is its original dry surface and amazing color. Made from pine and fastened with round head nails (and a few added over the years), the box is in very good condition, although I discovered one replaced foot while taking the photos. Measures 14 3/4" long x 8 1/4" wide x 12 1/2" tall.
