Lynne Nelson | 159 Mary Catherine Dr., Lancaster, MA. 01523 | 978.706.1321 |

I have been buying and selling 18th and 19th century country antiques for approximately 35 years concentrating in early paint, iron, lighting, and items to be found in the early kitchen. For the past several years I have shown in the Nan Gurley antique shows.

Large Steiff Bear on Wheels c 1921

This large 12x18" bear has the Steiff pewter button in his left ear. He is stuffed with straw with a muslin coat. He is wearing an old brown leather collar. The wheel on his feet are missing. The underside of his feet have evidence that he once had wheels. This is a great 1920's bear. He has some minor wear on his coat. Please email me any questions and for more photos. On the top of his back I believe is the growler mechanism but it does not work. Please email me your zip code and I can give you a shipping quote.

Tall 16 Drawer Spice Chest Green & Mustard Paint

This 21 in. tall wooden spice chest I believe originated in Germany. The tall case is dovetailed at the top and on each large drawer you can make out the former raised lettering. The words are in German but mean different spices, i.e. Gewurz meaning spice, Kummel meaning cumin, Zmit for cinnamon, Pfeffer for pepper etc. All of the larger drawers have this lettering which you can see under the green paint, The smaller drawers in the center are not marked. All of the drawers have old black wood and metal pulls which I believe were not the original pulls but very very old. There is paint wear and some loss (you can see the small area in the second picture). This chest can be hung ( it has a hanger on one side only) It measures 21 inches tall, 19 inches across and 5 1/2 inches from front to back. It is in well used condition but should look great in a primitive country kitchen. The chest has old round nails with oxidation. There are 8 large drawers and 8 small drawers.
