Gloria N. Greenwald Antiques & Folk Art

Gloria N. Greenwald | 276 Brush Hill Road, Litchfield, Ct., 06759 | 860.567.2791 |

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. WE OFFER AN EASY LAYAWAY PLAN FOR OUR BUYERS

19th c., Hog-Scraper Signed, Early Green Paint

An outstanding, tall 7" signed, hog-scraper candlestick in early apple green paint. When the painting of baskets became popular during the turn of the 19th c., so did the painting of candlesticks. In an effort to give the image of height and grace to the candlestick, chair hooks were removed on purpose. The paint on this candlestick is fully guaranteed to be old, around the turn of the century. The signed candlestick is an early example, we know that by the diameter of the base which measures 3 3/4". Later examples have a base diameter of 4." These period painted hog-scraper candlesticks are very pleasing. Additional photos are available. We offer our buyers a layaway plan. (Sale is for candlestick only).
