RARE 19th C. Blue Glazed & Sponged Butter Crock

Very RARE and a first for me, a beautiful dark Cobalt blue glaze over Spongeware decorated Butter Crock. Fresh Maine barn find (I kid you not), this crock is in excellent antique condition, no chips, cracks, or repairs. The dark blue glaze, over the Spongeware decoration, also includes the word "Butter" on the front of this crock. On the bottom, it has an impressed mark that reads 2 lbs. I can send further photos upon request, as what I am posting does this very special crock little justice! The interior is also a dark blue matted glaze, with no shine. It never had a kid, according to the old picker who found this crock, explaining that it probably had a cardboard inserted lid at one time (there are no signs of a lid having been in place). Measures approximately 5 1/2" in diameter and stands about 4" tall. Would make a great addition to any crock or Spongeware collection! $115 + $10 ship.

Large Fancy Antique Silk Braided Table Mat

Delicate but sound, this very large 19th C. Silk Braided Table Mat, is quite fancy in design and pleasing to the eye! Found in New Hampshire and colorfully made, this mat (is almost round but slightly oval in shape) has a diameter of about 28 1/2" wide, which counts the entire width, including the small circles. The small round circles attached around the perimeter are each, about 4" wide. The center oval is almost 21 1/2" wide. A tiny bit of shredding type wear to the silk can be seen in a couple of small spots, which is common to early silk textiles. This beautifully made table mat lies perfectly flat and would look amazing on a large harvest table or even a round table, as this mat is almost round in shape (it just works both ways). $225 + $10 ship.

19th C. Maple Pedestal Salt w Coin Silver Spoon

Fantastic fresh Maine find, a tiny treen salt with pedestal base and early coin silver salt spoon! The little wooden salt is carved from maple and has the nicest turned base. With only a diameter of about 2 3/4" wide and standing 1 1/2" tall, it is in excellent antique condition. Fabulous untouched surface, it almost has what I would call a "burled" interior, with honey darkened patina. The little coin silver spoon may not have started life with this salt, but selling together as they complete each other perfectly. I have pictured the salt & spoon with two pieces of old stone fruit, a peach and lemon, both showing surface wear but no chips (original wooden stems are in place). The treenware salt w spoon is $145, to include shipping. The two pieces of stone fruit are $40, to include shipping.

Best 19th C. Large Hand Hewn Trencher Excellent

This is a fresh and fantastic find, a wonderful large trencher bowl, completely hand-hewn (or hand-carved), with original darkened surface. Was only cleaned lightly with soap and water to remove a layer of old grime. This beautiful trencher has no chips, cracks, or repairs. Unbelievable, considering the age of this piece of primitive treen. Additionally, this trencher has a diameter of approximately 19" long, 11" wide and is about 5" deep. You can see the real use wear that this trencher has sustained, in the bottom interior (check out the numerous chop marks). Countless meals were prepared in this fantastic "Bergen County" wooden bowl! Best "flat lip" edge around the entire top of the trencher. As an actual hand-carved trencher bowl, found in Bergen County, New Jersey, it makes this 200 year old country primitive that much more interesting! $220 + $18 ship
