This 19th C. 2 gallon stoneware jug is signed Cowden & Wilcox/ Harrisburg and has a large cobalt blue foxglove floral decoration. There are additional blue accents around the ends of the strap handle. The jug stands 14" tall and has a slightly ovoid form. There is a shallow 1" x 1" chip on the base and a 2" line in the glaze at the shoulder. There is an old cork that is included.
This 19th C. tiger maple wooden masher is quite wonderful. With its warm color, smooth feel and great condition, this masher shows only light wear. Measuring 12 1/2" long, it would make an outstanding addition to your woodenware collection.
This 19th C. carrier with two finger holes was found in Pennsylvania. It is constructed of pine and was expertly joined with tiny square nails. The red paint is original and show the appropriate wear with distressing on the interior in particular from carrying utensils. Measuring 13" x 9.5" x 4.5" tall, the carrier is in excellent condition as shown. The simplicity of the lines and the excellent red paint makes this carrier a winner! Please check this item and others out on Ruby Lane for more photos.
This large, early 19th Century trencher was carved out of a solid piece of maple and hails from New England. We found it on a buying trip to Vermont. The bowl has a paint history of old dark Windsor green over light green (please see photos). Measuring 21 1/4" x 13 1/4" x 4 3/4" tall, the large bowl is in very good condition. There are no losses, just some distressing from use and a minor dry line in the bottom that doesn't go through. The interior of the bowl is clean with a warm patina and the paint on the outside is nicely worn and is authentic. A fine New England trencher!
This tiny 19th C. one pint stoneware canning crock with cobalt blue decoration is a truly rare find. Measuring only 5 3/4" tall and only 3 1/8" in diameter at the base, this was probably the smallest sized canning crock produced. It is not to be confused with the slightly taller but much fatter one quart canners. The nicely thrown crock features a trio of dark blue foliate designs on a tan glaze and there are two incised lines around the circumference. Probably produced in Eastern Pennsylvania, the diminutive jar is in excellent condition with just a minor shallow flake on the inner top rim. A nice little crock that fits in the palm of your hand!
This 1/2 Gallon vendor's script stoneware jug is a great size measuring only a little over 9" tall. It has the typical Bristol glaze and is decorated in cobalt blue with the hand written advertising reading " W Scott Gillespie, Kingston, NY" . These jugs were produced by the Fulper Pottery Co. of Flemington and Trenton, New Jersey in the late 1800's. This particular jug is in good to excellent condition with just a few small flakes around the spout and base. There were a large number of these jugs produced and they were all decorated by the same hand. The smaller sized jugs however with small town names or not New Jersey towns are favorites among collectors.
This 19th C. coopered wooden cheese mold retains the original paint decoration. There are two metal bands that hold the mold tight that have a wonderful bittersweet over yellow surface. The 3/4" thick wooden staves are decorated with ochre swirls on a mustard ground. The interior has a white residue from the cheese making process. Measuring 15 1/2" in diameter and 4 3/8" tall, this wooden cheese mold with fabulous decoration is in excellent condition. It could be an excellent container for you stone fruit collection.
This wonderful pair of primitive 19th C. iron heart-shaped candle sconces have a nice original red painted surface. Measuring 5" wide x 6.5" tall x 3" deep, the diminutive sconces are in excellent condition.
This 19th Century American wooden stave pine bucket with bail handle retains an old, if not original, crusty green paint. The bucket is held together very tightly with two metal bands and has an old cork in the bottom which plugs a one inch round hole. Heavy duty in construction, this bucket measures 8" tall x 9" in diameter at the top, tapering to 7.25" at the base. There are a few minor losses but overall it is very good condition. Nice old green paint!
This small 19th C. redware flower pot with attached undertray has profuse manganese decoration and is in excellent condition with only a few minor wear spots on the top rim. The pot measures 4" tall and 4.5" in diameter at the base. It appears to never have been used. A nice example of a great form to add to any country pottery collection.
This 19th C. "stovepipe" style stoneware wax sealer with 3 strong cobalt blue stripes hails from Western Pennsylvania. Measuring only 6" tall, the crock is in excellent condition with only a rough spot on the top and a chip that is underneath the top inner rim. A great little wax sealer in fine condition!
This hollow-body life size Canadian Goose decoy dates from around 1960. It features the original paint and glass eyes. Measuring almost 23" in length x 15" tall, this elegant goose is in very good condition with some minor distressing and paint wear, especially on the tip of the tail as shown. Would make a wonderful centerpiece on a dining table or on top of a cupboard.
This 19th C. Pennsylvania Blanket Chest retains the original red and oxblood red paint. The chest dates to about 1840's but was apparently dated and pinstriped with blue in 1881. Perhaps it was a presentation for a marriage or a birth. The back of the chest is also initialed J.H.K. It has square nail construction and has the original cast iron hinges. The chest is made of wide pine boards and there is a lidded till inside. Standing on the original turned feet, this chest is a classic! 33" wide x 17" deep x 22" tall
Price: 695 plus shipping
This 8" Pennsylvania redware plate has 4 wavy lines of yellow slip decoration. The plate has chipping around the edge and one spot of slip loss but is in good condition with excellent colors and displays beautifully. Note that this plate does not have a coggled edge.
This outstanding 19th C. oak splint gathering basket has an unusual half-wrapped split handle and retains its original green paint. The basket measures 23" long x 13 1/2" wide x 15 1/2" tall. There are a few minor splits and nibbles but overall this basket is in excellent condition.
This large New York or New England backpack basket retains its original old green paint. The basket has a carved handle that makes it easy for hanging on the wall. Measuring 22.5" to the top of the handle x 17" wide x 16" deep, the basket is in good solid condition with just losses on two corners at the bottom and a few other minor losses. The paint exhibits some expected wear in the right places for an occasionally used utilitarian basket. Market tendencies have driven the prices on this form higher lately, and this example deserves serious consideration. Item ID: 1714
These four miniature duck decoys date from the early 1960's and in the manner of Elmer Crowell. Three of them are signed "Carver-Bartlett, Artist-Garniss" and include a Mallard Drake, a Lesser Scaup, and a Black Duck. The other is id'd as a Red Legged Black Duck and dated 3/61 but unsigned. The four are expertly carved and beautifully painted in high detail. Measuring approximately 3.5" tall, all four miniatures are in excellent condition. Note that the wooden bases are nicely painted including the duck feet. More photos on our Ruby Lane website.
This is a fine example of a signed 2 gallon D.P. Shenfelder blue decorated stoneware jug. The ovoid formed jug has the signature Shenfelder brushed floral design with an extra blue stripe underneath. The jug is stamped "D.P. Shenfelder, Reading, PA" with a "2" inside a circle. Measuring 13.5" tall, the jug is in very good condition. There are a few lines radiating from a stone in the clay. The lines are stable and the crock rings true. There are stack marks and kiln touches that were in the making. None of this detracts from the aesthetics of this great jug from one of Pennsylvania's premier 19th Century stoneware producers. Please see our Ruby Lane website for additional photos.
This out-of-round 17" wooden bowl dates from the mid-1800's and has old sage green paint and lots of character. There is a rim crack that has old repair with wood and a staple. And the outside of the bowl has an interesting elongated knot hole from the making (shown). The interior of the bowl has a nice dry surface with lots of small distress marks. The paint is dry and shows the appropriate wear and patina. The bowl must be seen in person to appreciate the subtle paint color and character. A bowl for the true lover of primitive antiques! See more on Ruby Lane.
This primitive 19th C. New England cheese basket measures only 12" in diameter and 8" tall. The basket is coarsely woven out of ash splint and was used along with cheese cloth as a strainer to separate the curds. Once a utilitarian item, cheese baskets today are scarce and highly prized as highly collectible and decorative. There are some splits here and there but overall this basket is solid and in good condition. A heavy duty basket in an unusual size ready to hang.
