19th C. PA. Folk Art Bandbox w/Tulip Design

For sale is a wonderful antique 19th century folk art pantry/bandbox that I found in Ohio, but that was made in Pennsylvania. It is constructed with splints and wooden pegs. On both the lid and sides, there is a very stereotypical PA. Dutch style design of red tulips with yellow centers, and almost comma shaped leaves on the lid. The box measures about 17 1/2" long, 8 1/2" wide, and 5 3/4" tall, and is in nice but antique condition, with a dark aged patina, an area of missing wood on the top, as well as expected wear around the edges on both the lid and box. There is what looks like a crack on the lid, but I believe that 2 pieces of wood were used in its construction, as when you look on the inside, the line is very straight, and the grain doesn't quite match. In addition, there have been a few areas where nails have been added for reinforcement. Please look carefully at the pictures, and contact me with any questions.

Early 19th C. Memorial Sampler w/Verse, Owl, Cows

For sale is an antique early 19th century folk art sampler. I believe that the piece is probably English, and there is a religious verse at the top that reads "How great thy goodness, gracious Lord, What love doth dwell in thee: Through every season of my life Thou has remember'd me." The verse is flanked by 2 different vases/urns of flowers, and there is a stylized tulip vine underneath. The lower half has what looks like a gravestone with an urn on top, as well as a variety of flowering plants, birds, including an owl, and what look like 2 cows. In addition, there is a butterfly in the upper left corner, and the entire composition is framed with a strawberry vine border. The sampler is housed in an antique frame with a gold inner liner behind the glass, and although the frame is antique, I'm unsure if it is original. The framed piece measures about 15 3/8" x 13 3/4" with sight measurements of 12 3/8" x 10 3/4", and is in antique condition, with overall light toning, a few tiny brown spots, and a few tiny holes, mainly around the edges.

Antique Whites Utica Pottery Stoneware Beer Jug

For sale is a wonderful antique late 19th century salt glazed stoneware jug. A very nice knowledgeable person has told me that it was made by Central New York Pottery, better known as White's Utica. It has images of an old bearded gentleman on one side, and an old woman with a cane on the opposite. Above each figure is the head of a dog, and the handle is in the form of a fish. Under the spout are the words "Drinke Langsam. Aber viel!", which translates "Drink slowly. But much!" In addition, the number "3" is incised on the bottom. The jug measures about 11 1/2" tall, 4 3/4" in diameter on the top, and 5 3/4" in diameter on the bottom. The handle extends about 2 1/2" from the body of the jug. It is in near mint condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The only possible flaw might be that there could have been a bail handle at the top that connected to the piece with holes in the middle of each dog's head, but there is no real evidence that a handle was ever there, so I don't know for sure. Please look carefully at the pictures, and contact me with any questions, or if you would like additional photos.

Vintage 1920's Folk Portrait of St. Bernard Puppy

For sale is a wonderful vintage 1920's, possibly a bit earlier, small size oil folk portrait of what I think is a St. Bernard puppy that has been in my collection for quite a few years. I purchased it at an antique show in Ogden, Utah, 10 or more years ago, and have loved it ever since. In fact, I debated for a long time about whether to sell it or not, lol. The image is painted on thick paper with a piece of wood behind it, however, the paper is not glued to the wood. The pup is in a seated position, and he appears to be in the grass with vegetation behind him. The painting is housed in the original frame, which might be handmade, although I'm not sure. The framed painting measures about 12 1/4" x 9", with sight measurements of 7 1/2" x 4 3/4", and is in nice vintage/antique condition, with an aged patina, but no significant issues, although there was a paper backing on it at one time that is long gone.
