This circa 1840-1860 pine wall box retains its original apple green paint. The box is constructed of 3/8" thick boards that are fastened with tiny square nails. The box is all original including the two brass hinges. The paint has lots of honest wear and distressing from many decades of use. Likewise the unpainted interior of the wall box. Nothing added, nothing lost, just a great old wall box. 14" wide x 7 3/4" deep x 11" tall.
This sturdy 18th Century three- slat ladderback child's chair is primarily made of maple and is most likely New England in origin. The 26" tall chair has very nice turnings on the front stretcher and the top of the front and back legs. The seat has the original rushing with losses but a remnant of an old oriental rug that serves as a chair pad is included. This diminutive ladderback chair from the late 1700's would be ideal for a large doll or teddy bear.
This circa 1890's gameboard retains the original red, black and mustard paint. The back of the board is painted black and has two battens for stability. There are the original moldings that are also decorated with black and mustard stripes. The board measures 18 1/4" x 30 1/2" x 1" thick and is in very good condition with expected paint wear on the corners as shown. A better gameboard ready to hang!
This early 1800's dome-lidded pine document box retains the original red and black paint decoration and is in excellent, original condition. The box features dovetailed construction with square nails throughout, the original lock and snipe hinges, and beautiful paint with only minor wear. Measuring 15 3/4" wide x 8" deep x 6 1/4" tall, this box will be a welcome addition to anyone's antique collection. Northeast US origins.
This late 20th C. pintail decoy was carved by master decoy carver Reggie Birch, originally of Chincoteague, Virginia. This 17 3/4" full-sized decoy is one of Birch's earlier, and in my opinion, best works. The pintail features colorful scratch paint, glass eyes, a slightly turned head, and a two piece body. The paint has subtle distressing and applied patina that achieves a wonderful end result! A great work from one of the best carvers around.
This round twisted wire basket retains an old white painted surface and dates to about 1900. Measuring about 7" tall and 13" in diameter at the top, the basket is in excellent condition with no losses or repairs. A well made, sturdy primitive wire basket in paint.

This 19th C. urn shaped splint basket has the original gray-blue paint and is in very nice condition. The dry paint shows the proper wear and areas of crazing and patina that are only achieved through long periods of time. The two-handled basket measures 10" tall and 8.5" in diameter across the top. There are one or two tiny breaks on bottom weave from wear. An outstanding basket with form, condition and honest old paint.
This mid-1800's staved wooden keeler with one handle retains its original red paint. The mid-sized keeler measures about 13" in diameter across the top and 9" to the top of the handle. Constructed with two bentwood bands that are woven together, the keeler is in excellent condition. Great color!!
This early 19th C. Bride's box has an unusual center handle that protrudes through a slot in the lid. At some point, the lid cracked and someone preserved the top by means of tin patches- one on the top and two underneath. The lap-jointed box has a wonderful old primitive painted surface. There is a paint history of several layers, with the last paint being very old. It is an unusual and very pleasing lavender color. The box measures 13 1/2" x 8 1/4" oval and 8 3/4" tall to the top of the handle. There is shrinkage and a small loss to the bottom rim, where someone stuffed cloth to fill the gap. A great box with a ton of character!
This unusual tapered straight-sided stoneware crock with ear handles has a well-executed brushed flower in blue on both front and back. The crock is in the form of a flower pot except there is no drainage hole in the bottom. Measuring 10" tall and a diameter of 10 3/8" across the top, the crock would have been made in Pennsylvania or Maryland in the second half of the 1800's. There are 6 or 7 shallow rim chips and tight 5" hairline associated with one of the chips. The line does not go through to the unglazed interior. There is another chip on one of the ear handles. A rare form! More photos on Rubylane.com
This early 19th C. single tin candle sconce has great patina and is in excellent condition. The back of the sconce shows a lot of oxidation from years of use. The 10 1/4" tin reflector has an interesting geometric design and an old mottled surface. This is a wonderful early sconce good for any room in the house.
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 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. There is some wear and distressing as shown, but it is overall in very good condition and all original except for the metal hanger on the back.
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.
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 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 metal door mat with hearts motif dates to around 1900. It is in excellent condition with an old, stable crusty surface. Measures 24" x 16". Great for a wall hanging.
