These six blown glass floats have wonderful raised pontils and are clean and ready to display. They are all approximately 5" in diameter. Nice bubbles in the glass. Bowl shown in photo not included.

This little basket is an early one, dating to mid to late 1800's. It has thick weavers and double wrapped rim. Iron nails hold the handle in place. Nice condition with a few minor breaks here and there. The size is 7" diameter at the rim x 7" tall (to top of handle).
At one time this graced a flagpole. It is simply made and looks super on this little iron stand. Best "guesstimate" is 50 years old. It is 15" tall.
This onion bottle dates to the Colonial period and is a dark olive green. It has an applied ring around the crude lip and a rough pontil with kick-up bottom. Measures 5-1/4" diameter at the bottom x 7-1/8" tall. No cracks but one spider on one side and lots of horizontal scratches from age.
These two hearts are made of tin and are clean with great patina. Both edges are rolled so I doubt they were cutters. Larger one measures 6-3/4" wide x 7" tall x 1-3/4" deep. The smaller one 5-1/4" wide x 5" tall x 1-3/4" deep. Selling together.
This little oil painting is on academy board and in its original gold frame. It is dated on the back 1913 and has all sorts of interesting notations on the back. It looks like it originated in Germany (faded red label) and ended up in California. It measures 9-1/2" wide x 7" tall.
This little pantry box is signed on the underside of the top, "Present to Nellie M. Taber by her Grandfather Eli Morton? March 26th 1878". It is pegged and fingers are held by irregular iron nails. The paint is a robin egg blue over a darker blue, neither are new. The box measures 5-1/4" wide x 4" x 2-1/8" tall. Found in MA.

This little log cabin is handmade and probably around 30-40 years old. It has twig sides, wooden roof, door and bottom. The bottom has oxidized nicely. It has touches of silver on the twig (probably to mimic snow), silver roof and burgundy chimney. It measures 5" x 5" x 7-1/2" tall. The condition is clean and structurally strong. There are a few log tips that have split. Adorable!
This smaller bowl is delightfully out-of-round from natural shrinkage. It has its natural oxidized surface on the outside (turnings showing) and scrubbed surface inside. It has a nice little rim. NO cracks or hairlines. It measures 12" x 12-5/8" at the top x approximately 3" tall.
This unused clay pipe is probably English and is perfect for your pipe or wall box. It measures 11-1/8" long. These were furnished in taverns. When the customer left, the stem was broken off and then reused by the next customer. Free First Class shipping.
This was found in a Connecticut barn although it is very clean. The staves are tight. The wooden bands have what they call buttonhole because they are intertwined. There are two bands at the bottom and only one at the top leading me to believe one is missing there (lighter color beneath). Measures 11" diameter x 8-1/2" tall. The uses are endless!
This early mortgage is dated 1865 and is all handwritten. The three people involved signed it inside and their signatures have wax seals. Open it measures 27-1/2" X 25-1/2". Closed it measures 11" x 8-1/2". Condition is as expected, dirty on the edges, yellowed and one ripped hole in the center (done decades or more ago). Fabulous on an antique desk with inkwell and glasses set on top.
