For the past 30 years, we have collected and offered for sale 18th and 19th century Americana at shows throughout the Northeast and Indiana.

If by chance the item is proved to be not as described, I will be happy to pay the return shipping. Personal checks payable to Nadine Pechmann and Money Orders are accepted. Layaway is also available. Massachusetts residents please add 6.25% unless a resale # is provided. We ship USPS, UPS and FedEx depending on which is less expensive.

Most wallpaper boxes found today are made from pasteboard but far fewer are constructed from steamed and bent wood. This primitive little oval example is covered with a dark-ish tan paper that has lost most of its design details. There is a cranberry band running around the lower portion of the bottom. What charmed me is either the maker ran out of the main paper and had to use a scrap of complementary paper to finish the top, which has cranberry dots on a mustard ground, OR the paper was damaged and a patch was applied. The box is lined with newspaper from the 1830s. There is a small section from Brattleboro Vermont dated Friday May 21, 183? with the last number hidden under a neighboring piece. The date of another article is 1830. There is also a reference to New Hampshire. A couple articles are reported stories from other states, including a steam boat accident on the Cumberland River. Measures 5 1/2" X 4" X 3" High.
This Very Unique and Primitive Piece Is A Circa 1830 Wooden Bee Skep That Was Used On A Raised Frame With A Top Hole For Bees To Exit and A Secondary Entrance On the Edge Of the Open Bottom Which Rested On the Platform Of the Frame. A Nice Feature Is the Chamfering On All Sides Of the Opening. At One Time There Were Crossed Sticks On the Interior To Support the Hive. This Versatile Box Can Be Used As A Storage Box For Kindling, Ears Of Corn, A Pot Of Flowers, Evergreens, Etc. Or, Of Course, A Bee Skep! It Could Also Be Used As A Trash Container In A Powder Room, Bedroom Or Kitchen. Additional Photos Are Available. Measures 14" X 12" X 15" High. The Opening Itself Measures 10 1/4" X 11 1/2".
Price: SOLD Thanks!
From My Collection Of Make-Do Mirrors Is This Primitive and Amazing Survivor. The Glass Is A Full Chunky 5/16" Thick. Most Of the Silvered Backing Is Still Present. The Frame Is Sheet Iron With An Arched Top and Hole For Hanging. The Sides and Bottom Have Been Folded Around the Glass To Hold It In Place. The Iron Has A Wonderful Dark Patina. Measures 11 3/4" Tall X 6 3/8" Wide. The Piece Is Deceptively Heavy Because Of the Weight Of the Glass.
This Is Such An Unusual Form. It Is Constructed From A Hollowed Out Log Just As A Hornbeam Is With An Attached Bottom. The Top Is Nicely Chamfered Along With A Sawtooth Carved Bee "Door". The Crossed Hive Supports Inside Are Still Present, Especially If You Have Something Upright To Display, Like Brooms! Perhaps Cornstalks, Etc. There Are Some Areas Of Old Inactive Beetle Holes. The Piece Doesn't Lean, It's Just the Angle the Photo Was Taken. Measures 24 1/2" High X 14 5/8" Across the Bottom.
Price: SOLD Thanks!
