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 and Paypal. RECEIPTS: We provide a detailed receipt, with a description of all items purchased, on our letterhead. SHIPPING: We do not charge for packing materials or labor, providing those as a service to our customers. We ship using our FedEx account which gives great rates and delivery times. We provide shipping estimates for our antiques using the FedEx required 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 beautiful walnut slide lid candle box with a lollipop hanger. Dovetailed case and champhered lid with full perimeter molding. Warm rich color and patina. There are two well done repairs as shown in the pictures, priced accordingly, but not distracting to the function or the eye. Inv. 3977
These black painted cast iron bookends are very heavy so they will definitely hold books upright. The brass eagles are very detailed and beautiful. Condition is excellent. Circa 1860. Inv. 435
This brown mahogany washstand has a finely dovetailed and beautifully scrolled splash board having two corner accessory shelves which are above a shelf with a basin cutout and fittings for glasses. The lower shelf has a full width dovetailed and chamfered drawer having it's original brass pull. The stand is raised on delicate turned legs terminating on peg feet. Circa 1820. The surface is in very good condition, with the evidence of water rings on the lower shelf, shrinkage crack on either side of the basin cutout and minor scuffs. 17" w. x 15" d. x 37" t. Wonderful piece. Inv. 1438
We have not seen a four leg tea table before or since we acquired this beautiful example. Cherry with a 22" dished tilt top, a reeded urn shaft and wonderful four legs having cross hatched knees and reeded spider legs, absolutely gorgeous design and finely crafted. It appears that this once was a birdcage version considering the round recess in the wooden stretcher between the rails on the top and the four holes in the base block. At some point it was converted, possibly due to damage. Other than the clues mentioned it displays as is intended, a beautiful tilt top. As is often the case with these tables the leg dovetails have been stressed and broken and nicely repaired and they are solid. Brackets have been installed for added support. It stands 27 1/2" tall. Circa 1850. Great piece. Modifications described have been factored into the price. Pick up or we can recommend a reliable blanket wrap shipper. Inv. 3696
So called a courting candlestick because the story goes that parents would turn up the candle to a certain height and when the candle had burned down to the top of the holder it was time for the visitor to skedaddle! Ours has a very nice scrolled lever with which to raise or lower the candle, a feature not often seen. It has a chair hook and a turned wooden base. The iron holder is clinched through the base. Protective felt pads have been left on. It is 8 1/2" tall with a 4" base. Bees wax candle not included. Inv. 3868
"Primitive" describes this rush light perfectly due to the heavy construction of it and the old surface along with the rugged base created from a tree limb. It obviously has been well used and was an important tool to the maker/owner in the 18th century. It stands 9 1/2" tall and the base is about 4" round (irregular). It is a wonderful survivor and great addition to a lighting collection. Inv. 3848 Note: The 4th picture shows the device as it would look in a table setting. The rushlight itself is the only item offered.
The look of a spider leg pan is a good reason to own one. Probably the best look of all hearth cooking items. Ours is a bowl shape 8" round by 2 1/2" deep. It stands 6" tall and is 19" long overall. Has a nice well used surface in good condition especially considering its use over hot coals. And the 12" handle has a curl for hanging. Inv. 3831
Wrought iron betty lamp/ candle holder . Made to set on a table top and has spring clips that allow the light to be adjusted up or down as needed. We can't say for sure the age of this piece but it has the appropriate surface we expect to see in early iron lighting devices. The shaft has a decorative ring, the round tripod base is embellished with a reversed punched escutcheon and a hammered ball finial tops it off. The betty lamp is small at only 3 inches wide and long. The device measures 17" tall by 8" wide at the arm and the feet are 6" apart. Beautiful. Inv. 3841
