This folky 19th C. sheet iron rooster weathervane retains an old black painted surface on one side and polychrome paint on the other. Measuring 24" wide x 25" tall including its wooden base, the vane is in good condition but does have losses to his comb and feet. Still displays beautifully.
Dating from the latter part of the 1800's, this oval gold on black sand textured painted sign reads "Dr. Brown Osteopathic Physician". The sign painter's name is painted on the bottom in small letters as well . The sign measures 41 1/4" x 21" x 1" and is cut from one piece of wood. The back is painted dark green and you can see where it was once mounted to a post. There is expected wear and distressing but overall it is in very good condition and makes a very impressive display.
This dark pine folk art clock shelf with chip carving was found in Pennsylvania. Dating from the second half of the 1800's, this one of a kind shelf features two large cut out hearts with chip carving on all the edges. Note that there are 2 additional small shelves below the main shelf. The shelf retains its original dark finish. Measuring 41 3/4" tall x 14" wide x 9 1/2" deep, the shelf is in very good condition. There are a few age cracks and some very minor losses on the edge. A great shelf for displaying your favorite clock or curios!
This 19th C. straight-sided wooden staved cheese mold with metal band has the original teal blue paint. This is an unusual form with both ends open for forming cheese into "wheels". The teal blue paint is outstanding in color and condition. The mold measures 10 1/2" in diameter and 5 3/8" tall and it is in excellent condition. It looks great sitting on a cutting board or as a base for a small Christmas tree or plant.
This 19th C. 1 gallon stoneware pitcher is beautifully decorated with cobalt blue flowers and a " 1 G." on the upper rim. Excellent condition. 11.25" tall.
This 16" in diameter footed wooden bowl has a beautiful cranberry red painted surface that partially wraps around to the inside. The bowl has a well-executed foot and rim and has slightly distorted from years of shrinkage. The rest of the interior has a very dry surface and signs of years of use. There is a shrinkage crack adjacent to the foot (shown) that doesn't go through. There is also a flat spot on the outside that is in the making. This may have been by design for tilting while mixing or it just may have been turned that way. In overall excellent condition and with a wonderful color and surface, this bowl would be a great addition to your country collection.
This stoneware jug from the 1700's hails from Germany. Standing over 16" tall, the jug is incised with the number "3" and has a wonderful tan "orange peal" glaze. The spout has some nice ribbing and there is a small strap handle, all typical of the day. The condition of the jug is good, with some manufacturing flaws and some small chips on the base. As you can see, there is an un-glazed area with two smooth stone pops from the kiln on the side near the base. Likewise another smaller pop on the handle. And adding to the character is a firing crack on the base. The jug displays well, with a little lean to the right. A 300 year survivor! More photos on Ruby Lane
Offered for sale is this collection of 8 pieces of early 20th C. stone fruit. The collection includes 2 green figs, a cluster of purple grapes, a peach, an orange, a pear, an apple and a golden plum. All are in good condition with light surface wear consistent with age. The grapes measure 7" long. The bowl used as a display in the photo is not included.
Here is a great pair of 10.5" tall 19th Century baluster form pewter vases. The identical pair of vases are hallmarked at the top rim and are both marked with red and white labels from around 1900 that read "1862" and "$85 Pr." on the bottom. The vase on the right has a dent in the middle as shown, but overall they are in very good condition. A wonderful pair for table or mantle! Please see our Ruby Lane website for more photos.
This 19th C. pantry box retains the original red wash and is in excellent condition with no breaks or losses. The 9" diameter box is sturdily constructed with a medium thickness bentwood around a pine top and bottom and is joined with wooden pegs and 4 rows of copper tacks as shown. A great addition to any collection.
This mid- 1800's miniature poplar blanket chest features dovetailed construction, the original bracket feet and cast iron hinges, an inlaid escutcheon, square nails, and some of the original red paint. Measuring only 17 1/4" wide, 11" tall and 8 1/4" deep, the diminutive chest is in excellent condition with only several replaced glue blocks on the underneath. A great looking American chest!
This rare mid-1800's table top stoneware churn is unmarked but hails from the James River area of Virginia. The churn stands only 11 1/4" tall and has deep cobalt blue decorations on both front and back. Undamaged, the crock is in excellent condition with crazing on the bottom glaze and some kiln debris stuck to the left side of the decoration. More photos on Ruby Lane.
This 2 gallon ovoid stoneware crock has open handles that are accented with brushed cobalt blue slip. It has an irregular shaped rim from crocks stacked on top in the kiln which gives it nice character. The color clay, form and glaze suggests that this is a New York City piece from the late 1700's or early 1800's. There are no chips or repairs but there is a stable through- line that goes half way across the bottom and up the side as shown. 11 1/4" tall.
This 19th C. apple box is made of solid cherry and retains remnants of the original red wash. The canted box has hand cut dovetailed corners and the original turned feet that are mortised into the bottom. There is some old black paint accenting the edge of the bottom board and feet. Measuring 11" x 11" x 4 1/4" tall, the box is in very fine original condition.
This mid-1800's walnut dough board has a desirable "Tombstone" design. Measuring 25" long x 12.5" wide and 3/4" thick the board lays flat and is in excellent condition with light wear. A very nice board purchased this week from a private collection.
This 19th C. stoneware crock has a scarce manganese decoration. Easily identified as the work of S. Bell of Strasburg, Virginia, the straight sided crock stands 9.5" tall and is in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. A desirable example of Shenandoah stoneware.
This solid hardwood trencher or chopping bowl dates to at least the early 1800's. It is of an unusual form with its faceted sides. The bowl is carved out of one piece of a tree trunk and you can see the growth rings of the tree on the sides. Measuring 12" x 13" x 4" tall the bowl has an old rim repair and lots of signs of age but overall it is in very good condition.
Here are two baskets from New England that have 19th Century oyster paint and great patina. The larger basket is missing part of the wrap on top. The smaller basket has no breaks or loss. Both baskets have carved wooden handles. The larger basket measures 10" x 10" x 11" to top of handle. The smaller measures 8 3/4" x 9" x 10" tall. Two fine painted baskets sold as a pair.

This 1/2" pine Pennsylvania document box dates from 1830-40 and has the original grey smoke paint decoration. The box is constructed with square nails and retains the original cast iron butt hinges and iron lock. Measuring 17 1/4" wide x 10 1/8" deep x 6 1/2" tall (not including the knob on top) the box is in good condition with no breaks or repairs. The lock is missing the hasp as shown and there was once a leather hinged wooden divider inside that is no longer there. The grey smoke paint was expertly applied and has the appropriate distress and wear for a 175 year old surface. We are selling this box out of our personal collection.
