Stack of two miniature pantry boxes

Set of two miniature pill boxes. Nothing looks cuter with a 2" x 1" finger-lap pill box than the same little pill box accompanied by a two and 5/8" by 1.5" pill box. The larger of the two shows worn green paint. Both boxes have the central indented hole from the mold in making these boxes. While these two boxes look great together and alone, imagine the stack of pantry boxes that could be born with these two? Dating from the mid-1850s, these wonderful pill boxes are in excellent condition, each with opposing finger laps.

Price: $375.00

Black Indiana Doll sitting at a table, c.1900

Black Indiana Doll sitting at a table, c.1900 This is one of the most fabulous pieces of folk art I've ever seen. The amount of work that must have gone into this piece of art to achieve capturing all of that detail is astounding. The only thing missing from this is there most likely was another piece sitting glued to the table. Her face shows a pretty and pleasant expression. The doll's clothes looked to have been machine-stitched. The table and the duck under it were hand-carved. This little doll from Indiana captures life during the early 1900s. Exceptional work. Dimensions: Base of board to height of doll: 7" by 4-1/4" by 6-3/4" tall

Early Amish trencher

I love this early 1800s’ Amish Trencher with its dark, scrubbed finish. This well-used trencher has a deep well that has been worn through in one tiny hole; otherwise it is in great condition. It is thick and sturdy, but even better, it boasts an early, early repair done by an expert woodworker. This bowl is part of our collection and a definite favorite! (Dimensions: 19” L x 12-3/4” W x 5” h)

Early white doll

Very sweetly-stitched face on this early doll. Her clothing is original and pretty tattered, but she clearly was dearly loved by some little girl. The wire ring around the bottom of her dress remains intact; at one time, the dress was long enough to fall in a nicely formed circle around her feet, which are covered in leather. Probably early 20th century
