I have been in the antiques business since 1982, am originally from Connecticut and now living in Michigan. My first love is Americana and country smalls and sell at Midwest shows and sometimes on Ebay under ID ctyankee6. I travel to New England twice a year for choice antiques. I want you to be pleased with your purchase so additional photos of items upon request (prices below do not include shipping) I ship Priority Mail insured (USA sales only). I do offer returns within 3 days of receipt. Please email me first. I do not refund shipping costs. Michigan residents add 6% sales tax, or provide MI tax number. I accept checks (must hold until clear), money orders or Paypal (preferred). All offers considered. Thank you for visiting! I try to list one item every day at 7 PM EDT.

Large & Early Rye Basket Charger

This rye basket has sloped sides so not a cover. It has nice color (photo taken with flash so lighter than it actually is) and only one area of rim wrap missing (see second photo). It measures 16-1/2" diameter x 2" deep. Nice early piece and rather rare size. More photos available.

Price: $95.00

Little Framed Painting on Board, Signed & Dated

This little painting of fruit is on academy board and is nicely detailed. It measures 14-3/4" x 7-3/4". It is signed in the lower right corner with initials and a date of 1906 (I think) that is hard to make out. Very nicely executed.

Price: SOLD!!

Pottery Stoneware Apple Bank

This early apple bank has its original two-tone paint and molded stem, top and bottom. It is in good condition with some "in the making" glaze scrapes and rubs. The coin slot appears to have been chipped a bit. Still a nice solid fruit bank. 3-1/4" wide x 3" tall.

Tiny Miniature Carved Slide-Top Box

This early little slide-top box is amazing. It is carved out of one piece of wood. The slide top even has its little thumb notch. It is probably for matches or just a whimsey by a talented carver. It measures only 3-1/4" long x 1-3/8" wide x 1-1/8" tall. Free Shipping.

Large Pewter Charger with Initials on Bottom

I believe this pewter charger is American; there are no hallmarks or touchmarks. There are initials B W in fancy script on the bottom. I'd date this to late 1700's to early 1800's. One OLD repair (see 2nd photo). It measures just a tad under 15" in diameter. It sits flat but there are old dents on the edges. Great look!

Price: $110.00
