For the past 30 years, we have collected and offered for sale 18th and 19th century Americana at shows throughout the Northeast and Indiana. For several years, we maintained a booth in Antique Associates At West Townsend. Recently, the decision was made to "migrate" from my own website to Dig Antiques which will allow for more frequent updates. As a member of the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association, your satisfaction is guaranteed. For any reason, you may return your purchase within 72 hours of receipt in the same condition it was sent for a refund minus the shipping and insurance costs. If by chance the item is proved to be not as described, I will be happy to pay the return shipping. PayPal and personal checks payable to Nadine Pechmann are accepted. Layaway is also available. Massachusetts residents please add 6.25% unless a resale # is provided. We ship both USPS and Fedex depending on which is less expensive. Additional photos are always available to help you make a decision. Please text or email if you have any questions. If you would like to be added to the email update notification list, please contact me. Prices are wholesale until item is added to a "Sale" page. Thank you for visiting!

We can just imagine a loving and frugal husband hand crafting this little sconce from a spare or re-purposed piece of tin. It was cut and carefully folded to fashion this early piece of lighting. The maker was talented enough to cleat the candle socket into the bottom. This is a one of a kind piece! Untouched patina. Measures 5 1/2" High X 2 1/4" Wide X 3" Deep.
From my personal collection is what is officially called a kitchen scrubber. Measures only 8 1/2" long. So few of these have survived the daily work demanded of them with their exposure to water and soap. Made in one of two methods used to produce its larger cousin, the shaved broom. One way is to shave strips from the top down and fold them over. The second method is to shave the splints from the bottom up like this example. The kitchen scrubber does not usually have a dark patina because of its constant contact with water and lye soap. There are broken splints from use and a couple tight splits at the bottom of the handle. 3/4" to 1" has broken from the tip of the handle.
Used to skim the cream from a milk pan. Carved from a single piece of wood, this example is very light with great wear and dry patina. It has a comfortable hand hold and a small hole for hanging. Measures 6 1/2" X 4 3/8".
From our longtime collection is my all time favorite small hornbeam or log barrel. It has so much going for it; small size, original classic, dry "old red" paint, and rare shaped top. Perfect in a buttery or for kindling beside a fireplace. It can be decorated seasonally with gourds or green boughs and pinecones, etc. The bottom had been replaced sometime before we purchased it 30 years ago. As you can see, there is some chipping of the wood around the rim and other signs of wear. Measures 14 3/4" High X 13 1/4" Across the bottom.
Antique Hand Forged Iron Loom Light With Twist Decoration Under the Candle Socket and Hook For Hanging. Measures 12 1/2" Long. What Makes This Piece Unusual Is It Can Also Be Attached To A Wall Or Woodwork With Nails Through the 2 Holes Wherever A Light Is Needed.
