This early 19th C. dovetailed pine carrier retains its original red/salmon paint. Measuring only 13 1/2" x 8" x 5 1/2" tall, the carrier exhibits lots of wear from decades of use. It is constructed with tiny hand cut dovetails on each corner and the center divider is fixed with tiny square nails as is the bottom. A wonderful carrier in fabulous paint!

This primitive early bowl measures a large 21" x 20" x 7" tall and weighs a hefty 8.5 pounds. It retains a very old yellow paint on the outside and is turned out of butternut, a type of lighter colored walnut. The bowl has a wonderfully old make-do repair that has stabilized a crack down one side. There are also two small holes in the edge of the bowl and some other age cracks as shown. The yellow paint is guaranteed old and has traces of a later white that has apparently been removed. A primitive bowl that has survived 200 years! More photos on Ruby Lane.
This 3 legged dish top windsor stool hails from New England and dates to the early 1800's. The top is turned out of one solid 2" thick piece of birch while the three legs are turned out of chestnut. There is nice detail with score marks throughout, including the underneath. The concave top measures 10" x 10.25" in diameter and the stool stands 13.5" tall. The stool has nice color and has a soft wax finish with traces of the original windsor green paint. A very sturdy stool in an attractive and desirable form!
Here's a nice little checkerboard in original paint from the early 1900's. It measures 12.5" x 12.5" x 1" thick. The top of the board is two equal halves joined to the bottom boards which are of unequal widths and painted black. The red and black painted squares are defined by score lines which give the board a tidy appearance. There is an additional score mark around the perimeter of the squares and painted red. Excellent condition with only minor paint wear to the edges.
This blue decorated 2 gallon stoneware crock is unsigned but is easily identified as the work of the Boughner family of Greensboro, Pennsylvania. The family operated their factory for about 20 years in their Western PA town in the mid-1800's. This particular example is in fine condition with no cracks, lines, chips, or repairs. There is a tiny stone hole in the top rim opposite the notch. (I always thought the notch was put there as an aid in prying lids off of wax sealers but this crock is not a wax sealer) There is also a stone in one of the seven blue stripes. The interior is finished in Albany slip and is extremely smooth. The jar measures 11 1/2" tall and about 8" in diameter at its widest point near the top. A superb Western PA crock with excellent blue/grey contrast!
This 19th Century square footstool has the original varnished finish and a newer natural rush seat. Very sturdy and well-made, the stool measures 15" x 15" x 15" and is in very good condition. There are one or two minor age splits on the top of the leg and the finish shows age and wear. Provenance: Ed Fogg Estate.
This 19th C. hardwood cutting board features a desirable lollipop handle and is in very nice condition. Measuring 25 3/4 x 14 1/2 x 7/8" the board shows light wear . There are 6 filled holes in the back where there must have been battens at one time. Great form!
This pair of early 19th C. Pewter push-up candlesticks measure 8 1/4" tall. They have a beautiful form and a nice old patina. The push-ups are made of iron and retain their original buttons (one not moving). The sticks are in good condition with general signs of age and use. This form is not usually found made in pewter.
Here are two 19th C. hornbeams- one is 38" tall x 8-7" in diameter would be good for canes or brooms. It has a solid bottom, an old metal plate mend and looks like it had a band at one time on the bottom. The other is a mini measuring only 8" tall x 6 3/4-7 1/2" diameter good for kitchen untensils. Solid bottom in good condition.
Price: Large $450, Mini sold

This 19th C. Pennsylvania poplar pie safe with eight punched out starburst pattern tins retains the original red wash. The safe is all original and in excellent condition with one small repair to the lower left corner of the drawer. There are 2 doors with 4 tins in each door and the sides of the case are poplar panels. The drawer is lapped with nailed construction with mouse chews along the rear. The interior of the cabinet and drawer has an old, worn white wash and is primitive but clean. There are plate rails on the top two shelves and there is ample room for storage. Dating from around 1860, the pie safe measures 40.5" wide x 64" tall x 17" deep overall. This pie safe sits, displays and functions beautifully and should be seen in person the be appreciated. More photos on Ruby Lane. Shipping to be determined.
We have seen other pieces of stoneware with this decoration before. They always are marked with the capacity in freehand script (in this case 1/2 gallon). This pitcher has the typical cobalt slip-trailed leafy decoration that is always attributed to "New Jersey" or sometimes "New York or New Jersey". I like to call it the mystery maker because nobody really knows for sure, at least I don't think so. This particular pitcher displays beautifully and I like the size (9" tall). It is in good condition but it does have a shallow rim chip and a professional repair on the top rim to the right of the "G". Priced accordingly. Please click on our Ruby Lane website (above) for more photos.
Here are two baskets from New England that have 19th Century oyster paint and great patina. The larger basket is missing part of the wrap on top. The smaller basket has no breaks or loss. Both baskets have carved wooden handles. The larger basket measures 10" x 10" x 11" to top of handle. The smaller measures 8 3/4" x 9" x 10" tall. Two fine painted baskets sold as a pair. More photos on Ruby Lane.
This one gallon stoneware storage crock dates from the mid-1800's and hails from Eastern Pennsylvania. The crock is brush decorated with lots of cobalt blue that displays well from any angle (see photos). In excellent condition, the 10" tall crock has no repairs. There is one insignificant flake on the top rim as show. It would be hard to find a nicer crock in this form! More photos on Ruby Lane .
This 2 gallon stoneware jug with cobalt blue stencil comes from Western Pennsylvania and dates to around 1880. I have seen this stencil on signed pieces from Greensboro. This particular jug has three "owl in flight" stencils and a number "2" capacity stencil. The glaze has an interesting speckled effect around the entire jug. There is a 1/2" chip on the spout and a spider crack on the side as shown. The jug measures 15 1/2" tall and about 8" in diameter. The form is slightly ovoid and would be considered a "beehive" shape.
14 E. King Antiques is pleased to offer this circa 1840 solid tiger maple footstool with square, straight legs that are mortised into the top. The stool measures 16" x 6.5" x 6.5" tall and is in excellent condition with the original old, mellow finish. Note that there is an age crack in the top. Nice and sturdy, this stool would make an excellent riser for your folk art collection.
This 1/2" pine Pennsylvania document box dates from 1830-40 and has the original grey smoke paint decoration. The box is constructed with square nails and retains the original cast iron butt hinges and iron lock. Measuring 17 1/4" wide x 10 1/8" deep x 6 1/2" tall (not including the knob on top) the box is in good condition with no breaks or repairs. The lock is missing the hasp as shown and there was once a leather hinged wooden divider inside that is no longer there. The grey smoke paint was expertly applied and has the appropriate distress and wear for a 175 year old surface. We are selling this box out of our personal collection. More photos and items on our Ruby Lane website. Thanks for looking!
This round 7 3/4" Pennsylvania redware pie plate is decorated with yellow slip and is in very good condition. There are signs of use and a few minor rim chips but no cracks, lines or repairs. The coggle edge plate has good color and contrast and the unglazed back is slightly black from baking.
This 19th Century apothecary bottle with the original ground stopper is made of a very dark cobalt blue. The bottle features a polished pontil on the bottom with the appropriate wear on the base. Measuring 10 3/8" tall with stopper, the bottle is in excellent and especially clean condition. Very intense blue!
