Lynne Nelson Antiques
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.

Here is a great mortar and pestle. The mortar is painted in old red paint which is original. The pestle is probably not it's exact match. The mortar is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. It is 7 inches tall with a nearly 5 1/2 inch top diameter. The bottom flares out a bit. Most likely it was made in the 1800's.

Here is a smaller size 6" high spiral candle holder. The pushup is an old round dowel like piece with a ? wooden spike. The base is painted in a mustard color. At first I thought it was a novelty but I have checked with other dealers who feel that this is genuinely old and once used for small diameter candles. There is some slight surface rust on the spiral. This is a nice unusual piece of early lighting.
