The background color is dark green and there is a yellow pinstripe on the base. The interior is painted in the original red and has an old ink stain. There is an old French newspaper article on the bottom of the box. Measures 9" wide x 5 3/4" tall x 5 1/2" deep. Excellent, original condition.
This molded 9" tall stoneware spongeware pitcher circa 1900 is decorated in deep cobalt blue. There is a shallow chip on the base and there are 3 hairlines in the handle and other faint lines from the rim and on the base. All that said, the pitcher displays beautifully and the sponging and form is just great.

This early 1800's mortar and pestle has a nice slender form and retains an old dark red surface. The mortar is maple and measures 7" tall and only 3 5/8" in diameter. There are several tight age cracks and another crack that is more open but stable (see photos).
This scarce early 19th C. primitive American wooden herb grinder has an old Windsor green painted surface. The wheel is made of an extremely hard burl wood while the base and handle appear to be ash. There is a section of one side of the base that must of once caught fire, but this only adds to the charm of this early utilitarian piece. Measures 21.5" long. An outstanding kitchen collectible from our collection to yours!

This one gallon stoneware jug with brushed cobalt blue decoration dates from the 1840's and is signed "Smith & Day, Manufacturer's, Norwalk, Conn." The jug stands 10 3/4" tall and is in very good condition with no repairs and only a flake on the spout and touch marks from the kiln. I particularly like the ovoid form, the size, and the strong maker's mark washed in blue. Please click above to see all the photos on Rubylane.com
This "Philadelphia Style" stoneware chick waterer dates to the second half of the 19th Century and stands only 7.5" tall. It is accented with brushed cobalt blue and is in excellent condition. There is a 3/4" firing crack from the kiln across one of the blue stripes as shown. An uncommon form in a great small size.
This painted Windsor footstool is stamped on the underside "Wallace Nutting" and also retains a partial paper label. Wallace Nutting furniture was manufactured in the 1920's and 30's by craftsmen to replicate 18th C. American furniture in detail. This Windsor stool retains the original dark green/black paint and is in very good condition. It has a 2" thick solid one board wood top that measures 19" x 11 1/2". The stool is supported by 4 turned legs and an "H" stretcher. The overall height is 7.5". See more photos on Rubylane.com
This one gallon stoneware crock with cobalt blue stencil was made in the second half of the 1800's by Hamilton & Jones of Greensboro, Pennsylvania. The 10" tall crock is in excellent condition with 2 tiny chips on the ridge that is just above the blue. You can see in the photos a touch mark from the kiln on the back of the crock. There is excellent contrast between the dark blue stencil and the gray color of the clay on this desirable PA stoneware crock.
This 8" tall 19th C. redware bear holding a staff bank is painted red and is pretty special. It's a molded piece with a slot for coins on the bottom. The paint is original and has sporadic wear and loss but is untouched and has a nice patina in some of its crevices. You will probably never see another one. More photos on Rubylane.com
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.
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 pair of wooden dumbbells date to the early 1900's and retain the original red wash. They weigh a little under 2 pounds each and measure 12.5" long. Excellent condition with signs of age and use.
This 19th Century dovetailed pine PA wagon box retains its original hardware and paint. The box features two barn strap hinges that lowers the drop front, original bail handles on the side, large dovetails on the top and bottom, and best of all, the original blue paint. The interior has one shelf with breadboard ends which is adjustable. The back of the box has 4 boards with the same original paint. The bottom board shows deterioration but is out of sight. The box measures 23 3/4" wide x 16 3/4" tall x 12" deep and can sit on the floor or table. A rare and unusual box in coveted original blue! More photos on Rubylane.com
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. It has an old walnut stain and varnish finish and measures 35" tall and would only need a 10.5" corner to hang. This comes out of our personal collection. We bought it many years ago from the late Tom Pepper of Lewisburg, PA. More photos on Rubylane.com
This 19th C. pine miniature blanket chest hails from Eastern Shore Maryland or Virginia and has the original scratch paint decoration.

The unusual original applied feet raises the chest up to 10 1/2" tall x 16 3/8" wide x 8 5/8" deep. This is a great little chest in excellent condition! More photos on Rubylane.com
