Early Basket

An early swing handle basket in excellent condition. The wrapped thick rim, uneven splint and carved bent handles are indicative of a 19th c. handmade basket. Measures 11'' x 11'' x 6''.
Basket & Thread

A very pretty vintage sweetgrass sewing basket with 5 spools of Silkateen thread in soft muted colors of green and cream. The basket measures 6.5'' x 3'' and has one tiny break (see photos). The full spools of thread are in very good condition with their original labels.
Early Yellow Ware
Two 19th c. yellow ware tea or waste bowls for collecting used tea leaves. Good antique condition - the larger one having a small rim flake and the smaller one having a tight line (see photos). Both have crazing and minor stains. All in all, quite nice for such rare mocha and white banded bowls.  6.75'' x 3.5'' and 6.25'' x 3''.
for both
Stoneware Bottles

Salt Glazed stoneware bottles with recently applied labels (the labels are adhered with water based glue, so easy to remove if you choose). Both are about 10'' tall and 3.75'' wide. Bottle #1 (left) has a couple of minor rim and base nicks. #2 (right) is in very good condition.
#1 | $22.00        *Sold*

Tin Molds

 Two vintage tin food molds for your country kitchen. Both are in vintage/used condition. The larger mold has a swirl design and measures 6.25'' x 2''. The smaller fluted mold measures 5'' x 2''. This listing price is for both molds.
Storage Jar
An English pottery storage jar with molded bands, roulette wheel decorations and decorative handles. 
8'' t. x 8.25'' w. The lid is 6.75'' diam. Overall condition is good. One handle has a nip out of it and there are a couple of tight cracks on the lid as seen in the photos.
Burl Box
 While this document box has lost its lid, the overall beauty of the burled wood and early dovetailing makes it a nice accent for holding supplies or decorative florals. Measures 11.5'' x 8'' x 5''. Some age related splitting and warping as seen in the photos.
Wool Blanket Section
 A heavy antique wool woven blanket section in lovely indigo blue and cream (2'' squares). This piece is half of an original blanket that would have had a center seam. Measures about 37'' x 90''. The photos show some of the imperfections, but overall a nice textile that displays well.
Tin Tole Box

 This antique metal cash/document box has been painted in a traditional tole design. While the box did not originally have tole decoration, the current painted finish was more than likely done in the 1960's when there was a resurgence of interest in the craft. Measures 9.5 x 6.5 x 3.5.
Knife Cutlery Tray

 A nice primitive wooden cutlery / utensil / knife box with good patina and lines. The two section box measures 13'' x 9'' x 3.25''. The carved handle measures about 5'' above the base board. Good vintage condition with one long side a bit separated from the rest of the tray.
