Amazing Early 19th C. Infant Gown Dress

Lovely early 19th century infant dress, probably for a christening but rare, as it is in this wonderful printed fabric and not the usual white cotton. Completely hand stitched, in very good condition. I see a few tiny spots and some fading in a few spots too. No holes but could have missed something, as it is quite long. This might have fit a baby no older than 6-8 months. This style reminds me of what you would see on the antique Greiner dolls. Measures approximately 28" long and about 7" wide, shoulder to shoulder (not counting the short sleeves). It has an early fabric string on back to tighten or loosen to accommodate for growth. Amazing this cotton gown has survived at all. From a Maine seacoast estate, this gown should be properly displayed! $125 + $7 ship.

Large Germany Antique Tin Easter Bunny Mold

Wonderful and large size for display, a signed and made in Germany, Easter Bunny Tin Chocolate Mold. It comes in three pieces, with three clips, all original to this mold. Stands approximately 10" tall by 10" wide, it would make a 3-dimensional sitting Bunny. It is also signed on the piece by the back of the neck, "S. J. Co., Made in Germany". Fantastic untouched darkened patina, it is in excellent antique condition. I see where the number 25 was written on the base in old early grease pencil. It could be removed if desired but might be the original cost of 25 cents! $125 + $10 ship.

Price: $125 + $10 ship
