Oil Painting Quilting Bee

A quintessential peek into an earlier time where women gather inside a period home to create a beautiful textile that will find its place on the bed come winter. Refreshments are served and “dishing the dirt” spoken in soft voices seem to hold everyone’s attention. This oil painting has a naïve quality brought forth by the artist and is signed. However the signature is illegible (lower right corner). Overall good condition and most likely dates to the early 20th century. Some expected crazing along with minor paint loss that reveals the underlying canvas. Mounted in a deep canted frame and one area (upper top right) shows some minor wood loss. Delightful subject that tells a story. Overall measurements including frame are 20 ¾” across, stands 14 ½” tall and is almost 2” deep. More pictures Available!

Wooden Cookie Mold ♥ Motif

Intricately carved Cookie Mold showing a warm surface lending delightful color variations. Exact age is unknown. However the edges and corners are smooth and lend a gentle curved appearance. The backside was probably used as a cutting board as chop marks are present. Wood chosen is also unknown but smooth to the touch and warrants a piece not contributed to American origin.

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.

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! It is of the smaller variety measuring 6 ¾” tall, measures 2 ¼” across the top, measures 2 ½” deep, measures 1 ½” across the middle section and the bottom opening measures ¼”. More Pictures available.

Powder Horn Bird Design

Wonderful mid-19th century powder horn sporting a folk art bird seems to carry the design while a lone butterfly and meandering vines allow for further detail. This piece has a simple artist’s impression with hand carved design elements. A finial dots the center of the wooden cover where the leather cord is attached. The other end, near the bottom, consists of a recessed band to accommodate the opposite leather piece (strap). Plain tacks were used at the collar. There are two chips located on the edge of the collar but the rest of the piece was not affected. The base plug is missing. Condition is very good and this piece shows well. Great piece of folk art that awaits a cozy mantle! It is of the smaller variety measuring 8 ¼” from the top of the finial to the end of the opening, measures 1 ¼” across the top, measures 2 ¼” deep, measures 1 ¾” across the middle section and measures ¼” across the bottom opening. More pictures available!
