Sampler Miss Mary Ann Dated 1829

Nicely executed silk on linen sampler signed and dated in the year of 1829 by Miss Mary Margerum, framed under glass. Mary delights us with a basket of flowers along with two opposing floral designs dotted with a heart center located at the bottom field. If you look at the signature as well as the date it is obvious that the thread used was thicker compared to the existing thread and the colors are not consistent with the rest of the piece. Possibly a family member or Mary herself could have added the date and name sometime in the future. It is a mystery. Above the signature there may be initials of her family members, referencing the three vertical lines that resemble a Roman Numeral of “3” done in green thread that appear on two separate rows. The “CEF” done in green thread does not follow the alphabet order. Overall condition is nice with age related toning along with a couple of small holes in the linen. I don’t believe the frame is original but is 19th century, possibly the later part of the Victorian era. Sampler stands 22” tall, measures 14” across and is 1” deep.

Pantry Box Advertising Label Medium

Hard to find pine pantry with advertising label suggests this was actually made for “American Fig Confections” while also bearing the name of “Necco Sweets, New England Confectionery Co., Boston,”. This medium sized pantry dating to the turn of the century boasts delicious patina. The lapped over construction on the lid as well as on the side lacks nails that are commonly found but this box was made this way. The rest of the piece was constructed using tiny nails. A repaired crack appears on the edge of the lid near the front location. The overlap area that touches the existing sides (lid and box) was much lighter in color and extended outward 1/4". I was able to color match the existing patina to lend a consistent look. No wood loss to report. Consistent wear including scuff marks as well as light scratches. The label is 90% intact. There is also a tiny wood chip located on the label just left of the “star”. Inside lid reveals the artwork that could be attributed to the mischief of a child showing a series of penciled in rectangles. Condition is still good. Pantry stands 3 ¾” tall, measures 8 ½” across the top and bottom. More pictures available.

Stoneware Jug Mid-19th Century

Unique piece of stoneware having an applied handle boasts a “Gonic” style appearance referencing pale floating halo's against a warm nutmeg ground. The soft, rich earth tones are soothing and create a delicious hue that gestures a neutral color palette. It is difficult to attribute this jug to a specific region as there are no makers marks or decoration to go by. A hairline crack located in the front opposite the handle (midway point) cascades downward toward the base. Glaze pops have occurred during the firing process, one near the crack and others (smaller in size) are sprinkled randomly throughout. A small wavy line, though hard to detect can be found on the front upper area. Just below the top edge a horizontal brown streak is seemingly held captive inside the crevice.

Pennsylvania Water Color Landscape Painting

This delightful painting was found in a circa “1755” Pennsylvania stone farmhouse located on 134 bucolic acres in Bucks County. I was able to acquire two of these paintings signed by the artist “Ross”. The artist captured a beautiful farm house lending Pennsylvania flavor flanked by trees with blue skies overhead. The style lends whispers of a naïve folk art composition interpreted by the artist using brush strokes of whimsy. This painting just explodes with happiness and delight as the birds are taking flight in the sky while the trees seem to be thriving because of the springtime weather. There is some paint loss located on the upper right hand corner with further (minimal) loss sprinkled in the middle of the large majestic tree. Age of the painting is unknown and frame may be a later addition. I tried to research this artist but hit a dead end. Apparently, there was an artist studio on this farm but the owner’s name does not coincide with the artist. The frame is in good condition without any chips or cracks to report. I hope this painting speaks to you! Overall height including the frame measures 12” tall, measures 17” across and is 1” deep. More pictures available!

Spice Box Cabinet Eight Drawers Marked

Late 19th to early 20th century spice cabinet is one of the best examples I have come across boasting delicious patina and great form!

There are traces of apple green paint limited to the left hand side while the rest of the piece exhibits a warm surface. A tight crack on the left side panel near the bottom travels up to the top location. A piece of wood was joined pertaining to the right side panel near the top to possibly remedy a break that also affected the inside drawer compartment. This is a heavy piece constructed using tiny round head nails. A couple of the wooden knobs show a single chip referring to the “Pepper” and “Cinnamon” drawers. Two of the drawers have replacement bottoms along with others experiencing a couple chips and cracks. Shows well and makes for a great display.

Unusual Tin Kerosene Lamp

Unique Kerosene Lamp having a single burner equipped with a wick that dates to the 1875 period. The graduated cone shaped piece off to the right having a side window was fashioned from either mica or isinglass so the light held within could escape.

Powder Horn Cabin and Heart Design

Beautiful stylized mid-19th century Powder Horn having an inscribed design showing a “cabin in the woods”. This bucolic scene boasting folk art trees wraps around the throat and appears at different levels. A brass hand cut heart delights us located on the top wooden cover and shows tiny nails used to secure it. The decorative tacks on the collar lend even more detail. A copper loop was attached to accommodate the cord hanger (that apparently was found on Southern outfits). This was probably a right hand carry piece fashioned from cow horn. Instead of having a carved feature referring to the design elements, it appears the maker decided to draw the scene instead. The base plug is missing. There are a couple of inconspicuous cracks located at the edge of the collar as well as a tiny piece of metal that protrudes the horn surface. A recessed band wrapped with some unknown fiber can be found near the bottom. Great piece of folk art that awaits a cozy mantle!

Pennsylvania Cookie Cutters Figural Women

This pair of flatback, strap handled (one only) cookie cutters are folksy and fun! They date to the late 19th century and depict two women, one large and one small. The larger, harder to find version does have light surface rust throughout but the smaller cutter seems to have escaped this circumstance. There is a small break limited to the left arm only where the solder has pulled away from the tin. Larger cutter having one large and two small vent holes. Smaller cutter is missing the handle which provided an opportunity to create a wire stand. This piece may have been re-soldered at one point because the metal alloy extends past the figure. No breaks to report. Maybe one can fantasize that the larger cutter is the mother and the smaller version is the child. Nice Pair that can be added to your growing collection! Large cutter stands 6 ¼” tall, measures almost 3” across the top and graduates to almost 3 ¾” across the bottom. Smaller cutter stands almost 4” tall and measures 3” across. More pictures available!

German Putz Spotted Ram Rare

Hard to find Putz ram having a spotted wooly coat. Blue collar is marked Germany and still retains original bell. His horns have a “make~do” repair and are not original. It appears a piece of gold foil was used and I am unsure when this repair occurred. His darling face has been hand painted with eyebrow features. The right ear has a chip on the edge but the other ear is fine. One of the front legs is a little wobbly but the rest are in good shape. You may have to position this leg a little outward for him to stand correctly. There are some areas in his coat that appear light brown in color and are probably age related. He never had a tail and there is very minor paint loss. He measures 3 ¼” tall, measures 2 ½” tall (back rear location), measures 3 ¼” from the tip of his nose to the rear and measures almost 1” across his rear area. More pictures available just ask.

Early Spice Box Slide Cover Table Version

This interesting spice box fashioned from cut nails dates from the early 19th century and has great form sporting a raised center on the slide lid cover along with trim details that finish off this piece quite nicely. The six divided compartments are intact and boast honest patina preserved by the protection of the lid. There is a piece of wood missing from the top upper corner. It does not appear to be a clean break and my guess is this corner may have been affected by a hungry visitor who tried to gain entrance for the delectable goodies housed inside. The left bottom corner has slight damage. It is structurally sound and sports a dry attic appearance. Very unusual spice box that is not commonly found. Box measures almost 9” across, stands 3 ¼”tall and measures 5 ¾” front to back (deep). Compartments measure about 2 ½” by 2 ½”. More pictures available!

She has a little pinched nose, button eyes, a stitched mouth, and what looks like yarn or thread hair. She is further embellished with little drop earrings. There is a 3 1/2" seam separation to the bottom of her dress as seen in our photo. What a charming girl she is and definitely an old one! Contact Judy. Thank You! Free Shipping

Early Pantry Box Marked Peas

This antique pantry box was found in Virginia and was evidently used to store dried peas as the word "peas" is stenciled on the side. All tack construction (no staples) and showing a nice dark, rich patina. The lid had a crack which we have repaired and there is a wedge of missing wood about 1 1/2" long to the right of the repair (see photo #1). These old pantry boxes are getting harder to find at a reasonable price and we are pleased to be able to offer this l9th century piece at an affordable price. Height is about 4 1/2" and diameter is 8 3/4". FREE SHIPPING! Contact Judy Thank You.
