We have been buying, selling and collecting Americana, folk art, furniture and early weaponry for 34 years. Our first venture was named Blue Rooster Antiques which was located on our farm in a restored German style barn in mid-Missouri. At one time we were dealers in the Antiques Associates at West Townsend in West Townsend, Massachusetts. Now we are excited to display our wares on our Dig Antiques web site. This is part of our new business model where we have worked to cut our overhead and selling costs, which better allows us to sell great antiques at a lower price point. We have noted that re-pricing on some of our listings as an example. RETURN POLICY: We firmly stand behind our representation of every item we sell to be authentic and accurate, for your protection. This includes a 2 day return policy. Simply notify us of your dissatisfaction, pay the return packing/shipping costs, and upon receipt and confirmation that it is in the condition we sold it, we will promptly refund your money. Further, in the unlikely event you provide proper evidence that the item was not as we said it was (misrepresented) then we will protect you, our customer, from harm, by paying all return costs. Again, upon receipt and confirming the item being in the condition as when we shipped it, we will immediately refund your money. We don't know of a more solid warranty than that. We love happy customers and return buyers!! We accept checks, USPS money orders or cash, of course. WE NO LONGER ACCEPT ANY FORM OF ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS. RECEIPTS: We provide a detailed receipt, with a description of all items purchased, on our letterhead. SHIPPING: We either pack the item or we take it to FedEx or another local shipper for pack and ship. We are not responsible for loss or damage to your item once it is in the shipper's hands. Any damage or loss is between you and the shipper. We ship using our FedEx account which gives great rates and delivery times or USPS whichever is cheaper. We provide shipping estimates for our antiques using the FedEx system which requires full customer name, address, and phone number and by estimating the weight and size the carton will be after actual packing. This has proven to be very accurate method of determining costs. ALTERNATE EMAIL ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a neat trade sign from the first quarter of the 1900's. hand painted "Meats and Groceries". One sided for this advertisement but says "McCandless" on the back side, an older sign that was repurposed for a new sign. The new sign measures 48" x 9" x 1". It has a moulding around the edge in black to highlight the red and black lettering on white background. It has a newer hooks and wire hanger. Nice sign with good subject matter.
This unique game board is 5 1/2" feet long and 8 inches tall. It has 7 wrought iron hooks and painted decorative designs and a saying which appears to be German, not sure. Entirely hand sawn and painted. Pine, 19th c. A great piece of folk art.

All original 1900-1910 pedal car made by Pullman Company, the same company that made Pullman train cars for the railroads. The logo is still on the hood of the car with its model number 755 on the back of the seat. The body is a combination of wood with metal hood and seat back. All of the pedal, hand crank on the front and steering mechanisms are heavy cast iron. It is almost rare anymore to find a pedal car this early that hasn't been restored or cobbled up in some way. Note that one rear wheel is 14 inch and the other is 16 inches. one of them must be a replacement that was done not long after the car was made because they are a near perfect match. Just looking at it the difference is hardly noticeable. The make, originality and overall condition make this a rare find. From our personal collection. More pictures available.
Price: $1650.00 + pkg & sh (TBD)
We have had this wonderful cockerel weather vane for a long time. In the 1500's Rome issued an edict that a cockerel vane would be placed on every church as a remembrance of Peter's denial of being a disciple of Jesus the Christ when Jesus was about to be crucified. Jesus asked Peter three times who he loved and each time Peter replied "You, Lord" (paraphrased). Then Jesus said "Before the cock crows three times you will deny me.", which Peter did, much to his self condemnation for the rest of his life. Perhaps this vane is 16th century, we don't know, but it's wonderful construction and untouched surface makes one imagine it to be possible. The pictures tell the story better than words. Besides the scriptural implications this is a great piece of folk art. Measures 18" l. x 17" t. (21" on the custom stand) x 3" thick. We have been proud to own such a terrific example. More pics available.

Another wonderful piece from our collection is this family tree that begins with John Innes 1550 and ends with Fritz Fredrick Wahlstrom in 1857. The language may be German or Scandinavian but we are unable to read either nor are we certain of the origin. The tree is watercolor, the very few examples we have seen discussed are said to be school girl created. The tree has circular "fruit" containing the secession of births, deaths and marriages. Each circle has the edge decorated with dots, triangles, etc. and many have little symbols, the meaning is unknown to us. The art work is excellent. Its background appears to be painted gold to resemble foil. The work is done on paper. We have not inspected it out of the frame, which is old and measures 18" x 20". Condition is very good, minimum fading and there are 2 slight tears and a repair in the upper left, all of which are very minor but mentioned for clarity. This is only the second family tree we have seen available for purchase. We feel this is folk art at its best and highly value it its importance to any good collection. We have priced it well under the auction estimates we have received from East coast houses. More pics available
