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.

14" long x 5.5" w (at widest). We have never seen a more intriguing vintage breadboard. This wonderful whale has an inlaid wooden eye, and a carved "waving" tail -- raised from the flat surface of the body, acting as a great accent to the spirit of the fish, and also as a handle. It seems to be carved from one piece of wood, and the use and surface are just great. We are whale people and are very reluctant to offer him !!! early 20th c ? 2 photos.

2 3/4" x 3 3/4". Published by Achille J. St. Onge in 1962, this beloved tiny edition of the American classic title makes a delightful gift at this time of year. Printed in Holland, I have a duplicate in my collection and so am offering it here. There are a few age stains on the original slip cover. The book is bound in burgundy leather, with gold title info. The illustrations are absolutely wonderful, and its small size is especially nice. Way under market value to ensure its delivery to a loving destination. 1 photo.
Almost 6" x 6.5". Paperback. Profusely and beautifully illustrated by Tudor, with message from giver of book, rare edition, priced under market (from my collection) in excellent, clean condition. A wonderful treat for the doll/Tudor enthusiast. 1 photo.
15 1/2" to hem of dress. She has a "lollipop" head with colorful, woolen features and a fringe of light yellow yarn hair, and wears her original, Edwardian clothing - tattered dress, fancy embroidered petticoat with matching pantaloons in excellent condition, and a "winner" prairie bonnet. Yes, her bonnet is her caveat..... c 1900, American. 2 photos.
8 3/4" across front x 6 1/4" high x 5 1/2" deep. A very unusual and simple, painted and decorated tin box in really good condition, with delicate pinwheels (stars?) on the front and top panels, a molded hasp, and a decorated, flat iron handle. Expected edge wear from age and use. It's all there and intact. I have never run into a piece like this: American, mid-19th c and very simply graphic in paint design. Looks terrific on a shelf and is very clean inside. 2 photos.
17.5" long. Found : an unstuffed, doll-by-the-yard, advertising toy, from the late 19th c, in wonderful soft, printed colors, promoting an infant remedy. There are age spots, but charming detail - including a golden heart necklace. Apparently it was never stuffed and lays perfectly flat, making it a unique piece for display. 2 photos.
14.5". Those of you who know me know that this is my favorite kind of cloth doll -- simple, sweet, totally unassuming. This one comes in a great red calico dress from the 19th c, which is missing the whole section of button or hook panels on the upper back. Too many little hands taking it on and off, is my guess. I think she had one very dirty face removed too, along the way, because she shows darker patina under the neck. But... she still has her penciled features, and a sweet smile. She wears original stockings and pantaloons too. Her dress is perfect for Christmas. 2 photos.
11 3/4" long. There are varying opinions on these spoons. Many are Native American; some are Scandinavian. I truly don't know, but, I bought this well, and am passing it forward as a beautiful object, showing skillful carving and nice old patina. There is a surface crack on the bowl from shrinkage, but otherwise the condition is excellent. A nice little rooster is perched on the top of the handle. 19th c. 2 photos.
Frame: 7" x 8 3/4". An endearing kitten pattern, cut from nice old paper, and simply and efficiently framed in a narrow black molding, with a cafe-au-lait paper backing. I bought this years ago and love it. It came from a good, old collection and is authentic. c 1860. Newer framing. 1 photo. (Sorry about reflection.)
8.75" tall; top: 9" square, with fold. This is certainly not my usual fare, but I couldn't resist. The lacey top has a linen-folded edge, with a well for the kettle, and it is nice and heavy so as not to tip. It is in great condition with just a bit of tweaking needed at the fold, and the patina is glorious. Give your hearth a gift this season ! c 1860. 2 photos.
6.5" tall with 3.25" diameter at base. An old jar ( no open pontil ) with original tin lid, holds deeply fragrant thyme -- gathered from the long-ago open spaces of New Hampshire. No scent is more compelling when one walks the fields and steps on a patch of wild thyme from some very old garden patch. This jar retains 2 old labels -- a flourishing one for the front and a utilitarian one on the back, so that the storekeeper knew without turning it what it held. Jars containing ingredients are true time-keepers, transporting us instantly back to their origins and uses. c 1890. Everything to do with this jar has wonderful patina, including the contents. The top edge is rough from shop use. 2 photos.
He comes to us in extremely good condition, having survived certainly from the 1900 period or earlier, in a wonderful 3-piece outfit in subtle colors of a cafe-au-lait and green/blue polished cotton, trimmed with lace and period buttons. Nothing altered. Totally authentic. He is the small brother of one in the Neff collection. His face is embroidered in detail, and he wears a matching beanie on the back of his astrachan hair. 2 photos.
24" x 30". A "Sunday Afternoon" oil on canvas of a very nice looking ship, flying an American flag, with nice background shoreline and sky, unframed, age unknown, un-signed. Has oxidation on stretcher and other evidence of age, and makes a really nice statement. 2 photos.
Price: $225. plus 1/2 shipping cost
