This wood grain scoop is hand-carved, late 1800s/early 1900s and is now used as hanging wall box, with a heavy coat of varnish. The wood color is buttery smooth and makes a unique wall box. It measures 21" x 8" x 5-3/4"
Price: $250 plus ship
This is an unusually large wall box — pipe box or candle box or something else. It is mid 1800s, original black paint and boasts the pinwheel hand-carving typical of Pennsylvania creations. The head is shaped like a tombstone. The small drawer is dovetailed, and the knob is original to the box. This is an excellent, unusual box. It measures 25" x 8-1/4" x 5"
Price: $450 plus $25 ship
This planter in its original apple green paint dates probably to the early 20th century, although it does have an older nail construction at the handles. It measures 22" x 11" x 10." The paint is actually a little brighter than the photos suggest.

This painted bucket is the color of many buckets painted with "Sugar" on the sides and that also have lids. The salmon color, or faded red, is original to the bucket, dated late 1800s. It is in good condition, with normal fading and wear. One side has a nickel-sized circle of worn-off paint. From an Illinois collection. Measures 10" x 10.5" x 12.5"

This planter measures 32" x 12" x 8-3/4." It is unpainted and it's handle is missing/broken. However, it would be a nice thing to have for putting plants or other outdoor gardening tools. I guess it depends on how creative you want to be!

I'm honestly not certain of this shelf's age. It comes from the collection of a woman in Illinois, and I'm guessing early 20th century. It has later green paint over a first paint of red. This is a great size and has many useful purposes. The individual cubby slots can hold any number of things. It was cleverly used on its former owner's kitchen cabinet to organize mail, medications, "to do" lists, and other things. This shelf can also stand on end and sit in a corner. It measures 37" x 12" x 10"
