Hello Everyone! After Recovering From Knee Replacement Surgery, I Hope To List New Items Toward the End Of August. For the past 30 years, we have collected and offered for sale 18th and 19th century Americana at shows throughout the Northeast and Indiana. For several years, we maintained a booth in Antique Associates At West Townsend. Recently, the decision was made to "migrate" from my own website to Dig Antiques which will allow for more frequent updates. As a member of the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association, your satisfaction is guaranteed. For any reason, you may return your purchase within 72 hours of receipt in the same condition it was sent for a refund minus the shipping and insurance costs. If by chance the item is proved to be not as described, I will be happy to pay the return shipping. PayPal and personal checks payable to Nadine Pechmann are accepted. Layaway is also available. Massachusetts residents please add 6.25% unless a resale # is provided. We ship USPS, UPS and FedEx depending on which is less expensive. Additional photos are always available to help you make a decision. Please text or email if you have any questions. If you would like to be added to the email update notification list, please contact me. Prices are wholesale until item is added to a "Sale" page. Thank you for visiting!
