19th c Gentleman's Dresser Box w/Swivel top

For sale is a handmade gentleman's dresser box (description given at the auction) in walnut. It is unique since there are no nails, no pegs, screws, or glue. It is made from a single block of wood. The lid seems to have been sawed free from the rest of the block, then the compartments were chiseled out by hand. Before the lid was free, the piece that the hinge is made up of was carved. A hole was drilled and a nail was inserted through, which made the top swivel to open. The lid has a hand-cut decoration carved into it. This was made probably in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Very finely crafted for a primitive piece. I have other pics I can share with you. It measures: 15" long, 5" wide, 4 1/2" tall. The compartments are 5" x 3 3/8", and about 2 1/2" deep (roughly).

Walnut Flax Hatchel W/Lollipop Ends

This is a nice hatchel. It is made of walnut, which is unusual because the ones I have had were either pine or poplar. You can see in the picture that there are screws holding the block with the spikes. I removed one of the screws to see what it looked like, and it looks to be handmade. I have a pic that I can send. It measures: 17 1/2" long and 5 1/2" wide. I can share more pics.

1800s Tin Baby Nurser

I am offering for sale, a tin baby nurser. These are a pretty rare find. It is made of sheet tin and soldered at the joints. The nurser is all original. I did some research on it and found that they were in use from the early to mid 1800s, and were found in use primarily in central Pennsylvania. My second pic shows the tube leading from the bottom of the cup to the top, which allowed the baby to suck the food through the hole in the lead nipple. There is no rust or pitting and is very smooth on the outside. There is also a wonderful patina and only one extremely minor dent (not sure if it will show on a pic). I can send more pics if you would like. It measures: 3 3/4" tall, 2 1/2" wide at the base, and the opening at the top is 1 3/4".
