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 nice 132 inch diameter by 6 in. tall apple green pantry box. This box has the original dry green paint. A large finger decorates the body of the box and a smaller finger the cover. It is in very good used condition. The box is solid with no breaks but a little roughage around the top of the rim under the cover.

This wrought iron utensil holder was meant to hold utensils by the fireplace. It has two spikes which set into the beam. The posts at each end are decorative and are white smithed (I believe that is what you call the decoration impressed into the metal) as well as the bar across the front. It measures 9 1/2 inches from post to post.
Here are two very early wrought iron pot hooks measuring 6 inches long. the smaller in diameter one has a flat side. These were used as extensions in the fireplace to hold pots. I can ship via small flat rate priority mail.
Hard to find trammel loom light used to adjust the height of lighting while working on a loom. This light measures 25 inches long not including the double Betty lamp. Along with the Betty lamp is the pick. It is in good used condition.
This is a rare candle dipper which was often hung by the fireplace to dry the candles. Nice old attic finish. It measures 10 inches in diameter. Lay-a-way is offered.
For sale are two painted pantry boxes in original blue paint. The top box is in a great dry robins egg blue paint measuring 6 1/4 in. (top diameter) and 2 3/4 in. tall. The seams are tight, there are no cracks or splits. The top of the cover in unpainted. Approx. 3 1/2 in. on the body of the box has lost its paint. The dark blue pantry box measures 6 1/2 inches across the top and 3 inches tall. There is a small area of wood loss along the seam. There is also old paint loss on the body. Both boxes would look great in a stack of pantries. Please ask for more pictures.
