Connecticut Yankee Antiques
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 at firstname.lastname@example.org or call, Home - (248) 548-2873 or Cell – 734-748-3551. 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). Reasonable offers considered. Thank you for visiting!! I try to list one item every day at noon EDT.
Today will be my last listing until next week after I return from a show. At that time I will be adding an item each day at 7 p.m. Eastern Time instead of noon.
This lamp dates to the late 1700's to early 1800's. It probably hung by an iron chain but that is gone. Great early piece!
These little leather button shoes are taller than any I've seen before. All the buttons are present. There is normal wear on the black and red leather and lots of wear on the soles. They measure 6-3/4" long x 9" tall. More photos available.
This little trencher has been in the same collection for the past 30+ years. My source is a retired dealer who did all her buying in PA. This one I believe is maple and has great grain. 10" x 6" x 2-1/2" tall. Minor old chips on edge. Circa mid 1800's.
These two redware plates are sold separately. Each have been reproduced in the same manner as the early PA pieces. The rectangular one is signed Betty Lou and dated 2008, $60. The round one is a Christopher Woods piece, dated 1990, $65. Both have their original price sticker!
Price: See Listing for individual prices.

This oil dates to late 1800's to early 1900's. It shows a corner of a room with primitive fireplace, chair, beams and wooden floor. It is dark but pleasing. No tears. Some crackling. It is not signed or dated. The painting measures 16" wide x 13".
This little coop is marked GERMANY on the bottom. It has wallpaper shingles on the top and sides (some wear). The rooster pops out on a little stick when the door is opened. It no longer squeaks. The toy measures 6-1/4" wide x 3-3/4" front to back x 5-1/4" tall.
This is a fun little piece. The uses are endless. Pine wood with dark patina, irregular iron nails and best salmon paint on the front. It measures 6" x 9-1/4" x 6-3/8" tall.
These early spectacles are gold tone and there are no cracks in the glass. The case is leather and marked with Emil H. Arnold, Optical Specialist, Ann Arbor, Mich. Great for display with your early books. (Book shown in photo is not included).

I've never seen a wire egg basket this small. Perhaps for a child? It measures only 4-1/2" wide at its widest point x 4-3/4" tall to top of handle. Cute as a button! Free Shipping.

This rag rug was purchased as old store stock in Northern Michigan. It has never been used. The colors are mainly two blues and with yellow, burgundy, gray and white. It has its old store tag stating "Axford's Rug Weaving Newport, Mich. 42" x 7', although when I measured it, it measures 39" wide. It is heavy and crisp.
