Art Antiques Michigan
I have been an avid collector of country, primitive antiques for about 50 years. During those years I have collected, sold, collected, sold---you know how that goes. I was a single owner antique shop for many years. With the onset of the internet my selling venue has changed. I now have a website www.artantiquesmichigan.com. Some of you may know me from there. I hope to bring to my Dig site the same quality country, primitive antiques as I offer on my website, at reasonable prices. I will update my Dig site every month between the 15th. and 17th. of each month. You will find fresh to market items at that time. My preferred method of payment is by check. Made payable to Joanne Getz. I offer a lay a way plan to help you with your purchases. Michigan residents add 6% Sales Tax. I do hope you will stop by often. I can be reached nearly anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 9894281009.
A very sweet hide covered document box. I love the small size of this box. It measures only 8 x 4 x 5 1/2 inches. Excellent condition. Original handle on the top and still has its latch and lock. Some small bits of leather missing on the trim and there is a split in the hide on the back of the box (see photo). Great, original wall paper covering inside the box.

STACK OF 2 ROUND MINIATURE PANTRY BOXES – This is a stack of two round miniature pantry boxes. The smallest is mustard and the largest is red. The boxes are seamed construction with round nails. Both of the boxes and paint show signs of wear and age. I believe these boxes are early 20th century. The mustard box is 3 1/4” in diameter and 2 1/4” tall. The red box is 4 1/8” in diameter and 3” tall. The stack of pantry boxes looks great together!
19TH CENTURY TRENCHER IN BLUE PAINT - This is a wonderful 19th century trencher. It is covered in beautiful old blue paint. The trencher was carved from one piece of wood. The attractive form features sloping sides with arched ends that were hand planed. It is in excellent condition with interior chop marks and signs of use and age. The exterior shows hand carved markings in the dry worn painted surface. The trencher measures 18 7/8” long, 9 5/8” wide and 3 5/8” tall.
LATE 19TH CENTURY SALESMAN’S SAMPLE GARBAGE PAIL – This is a unique item and strangely a favorite because it makes such a wonderful conversation piece. Although garbage pails were first used in 1875, this is a much smaller version that was probably used as a salesman’s sample as the garbage pail evolved and took form. It is only 11” in diameter at the bottom with a 13” diameter lid and 12” tall (to the top of the handle). The garbage pail is made of galvanized steel that has a ridged or fluted exterior form. It has an iron handle and iron retaining clips on each side that firmly secure the lid. The entire exterior of the pail is covered in fantastic hues of soldier blue paint that has oxidized over the years and produced a worn surface with a rich patina. Appearing to never have been used for garbage the interior of the pail is clean with no odor. A unique piece!

A wonderful small, carved Rifleman's Noggin or Rifleman's Cup. The cup is hand hewn from Maple wood. The patina on this cup can only come from years and years of handling, wipinging and cleaning. It is smooth and well stained. Dating to the end of the 18th. century gives some extra interest to this wonderful piece of treen. Not sure if the leather string is original or not, my guess would be that it is a very old replacement. The noggin measures 6" long and the diameter of the cup is 3".

Made of Pine wood, in excellent condition. Shows beautifully and would look great in a stack or standing alone. Initialed on the top of the box. Square nails. The box measures 20 x 9 1/4 x 9 inches tall.

The bottom of the goose has an age split that has been restored with wood fill.
19TH CENTURY YELLOWARE PEPPER POT-Plain yelloware pepper pots are the least common and most difficult to find. Appealing because of their simplicity, this yelloware pepper pot has a bulbous body and flat base. Measuring 3 1/2” tall, this pepper pot is also uncommon because of its unusually small size. Circa 1891-1920, the bottom of the pepper pot is incised “Wedgwood Made in England” and is in excellent condition with a few flea bites to the pepper holes on top.
