Gloria N. Greenwald Antiques & Folk Art

Gloria N. Greenwald | 276 Brush Hill Road, Litchfield, Ct., 06759 | 860.605 3958 |

We have been dealing in early 18th & 19th century country antiques and folk art since 1989. The major Americana antique shows of the Northeast were a focus for many years. Having retired from the show circuit in 2006, we now concentrate on selling privately and online. We deal primarily in country smalls including painted boxes and bowls, lighting, iron and tinware, and baskets. We look for makers who understood form and function, even when handcrafting rather primitive objects. Our preference is for pieces that please the eye AND perform a function.

A Small Primitive Early Table Box, Early Blue

A simple early antique wooden table box with canted short sides and very nice worn old blue paint. The front and back long sides are not canted outward but are straight. Only the short ends are canted or flared outward. The box is structurally sound. There are nicks and scuffs to the wood and painted surface. There is a lot of paint loss.The interior has some old dark residue. No odors. Dating it to the early part of the 20th century. It 10 1/4”x 6"x 2 1/4" deep. We offer a layaway plan.

Antique Hogscraper Make-do Push up Windsor Green

Antique rolled iron hogscraper candlestick with a make-do push up in old dark green paint. The push up adds a touch of sophistication in that it appears to be the handle end of an old spoon with an impressed wheat design. On the underside of the pu sh up there are numbers, (950) and two letters that appear to be “WC”. The old worn Windsor green paint is a definite plus. The push up slides easily up and down but does not want to stay in the up position. Good early lighting piece in hard to come by old paint. 6 1/2" high.
