Kathy Schoemer Antiques
Kathy Schoemer Antiques was born at Christmastime in 1971 in New Canaan, CT. We currently find ourselves in one of the smallest, dearest 18th century houses in the village of Walpole, NH, a magical spot just a minute from the meandering Connecticut River and southeastern Vermont. After an almost 50 year career, during which we exhibited in some of the finest shows in the northeast, we have opted for a simpler formula. Kathy served on the Board of the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association for several years (as President for three). Now you can find her at home, welcoming old friends and new, and on this DIG site, sharing things she loves.

Found in a VT estate, this 18" x 31" rug is a perfect size for so many places, and has a simple graphic motif in subtle shades of milk chocolate brown and beiges, with black accents. c 1900. Some old images are very contemporary. In the old days, I had all my textiles stretched and framed at the Gallery of Graphic Arts on York Ave, in NYC, and this has all the earmarks of their perfected techniques for rug-mounting. Please note the sweet, tiny eyes ! 2 photos.
14". Sheet iron dancing toy with his original hook, in great condition and patina, c 1880, found here in NH. A wonderful, joyful wall piece, with lots of movable parts to play with. Looks like a poor relative of Bill Traylor's work.
An 11" unmarked Steiff open-mouth teddy bear, with lush mohair coat, adorable stubby legs, excellent condition (one black thread on right foot is loose), and all-around delight. c 1950 ? 2 photos.
4.5" from tail to toes x 2.5" tall to top of head. A treasure for the dog-lover, this small, but detailed little carving has real presence and is in excellent condition. American pine, probably from the early 20th c. 2 photos.
4.5" x 5". Early potholders are rare and wonderful, and this one is in great condition - needlepoint in pumpkin and black threads. "Unless the kettle boiling be, filling the pot spoils the tea." c 1880. American. Excellent condition on front and back. 2 photos.
16.5" x 22.5 in original gold frame with framer's label from Brookline, MA. This endearing oil, capturing a wonderful cape with 2 outbuildings, and a small side barn, has a penciled notation: "This is the property of Albina Callaghan." As lovers of our tiny 18th c house in Walpole, we totally understand the desire to have it saved in artistic expression for the future. ( I had our house memorialized for Eno for his 80th birthday in 2017. ) It is spring forever in this painting, with the lilac in the dooryard and the fruit tree in full bloom. c 1910-1920, New Englland for sure. Excellent condition, unsigned. 2 photos.
13" long x 7.5" wide at reflector plate. These are beautifully made and have a good amount of age, but like many, many pairs of tin sconces, it is possible that they are Mexican. The work is exquisite -- raised decorative elements on surfaces everywhere, beautiful, original patina, rolled edges, and embossed, curled leaves for the candle holders, which are adjustable to candle size. The arms are scrolled into a spiral which is quite an embellishment. No damage. Beautifully welded wall attachments on backs. One has darker surface, but not as dark as the photo. They came from a home in Fitzwilliam, NH. 2 photos.
Price: $95. pair
