Small cheese baskets are rare and painted ones even rarer! This 1/2 inch out-of-round basket is ~14 " in diameter and 4 " high. Green paint is original. Picture shows how splints have shrunk over time after painted. This basket has been in a private collection for over 25 years. One very minor break (ask for picture). Great wall decoration.
Price: SOLD -- Thank you!
Warm and mellow maple 19th century trencher. 21" X 14". Great form - wonderfully "out of shape and curvy".
Large American Elm Trencher. 31" X 16 ". Early 19th century. Pronounced handles at the ends. Note wonderful hand carving. There is a thin and shallow crack at the bottom, hardly noticeable. This trencher has been in a private trencher collection for 25 years. Makes a statement!
19th century candle slide box in original green paint. 13" X 7.24" X 5". I purchased it 35 years ago. A former owner tacked an index card to the inside of the lid that reads "Purchased from Captain Buchman, Buchman Road, Falmouth Maine, 1965." Double compartments inside. There is some wood shrinkage on the slide lid -- to be expected with age.
19th Century Redware Apple Bank. Great color. I have a collection of these banks. If you are interested in other forms, let me know.
Early 19th century American maple treen plate. Slightly out-of-round (9" to 9.25"). The line across the plate is a knife mark and not a crack or split.
