19th C. Apothecary - Wonderful old country store set of drawers found in Clinton Corners, a small town in the Hudson Valley of New York. Super old attic surface with an original brown wash. If you are a collector of "brown", which is the latest craze of the Early American Collectors, this piece should be strongly considered. This piece has graduated drawers from narrow to deep. The drawers are simply dadoed together implicating that this piece was not made in a fine furniture shop, but still well put together. The sides and top are hand planed surfaces, the unseen surfaces are rough sawn. The framework was made correctly. It is a primitive piece however as revealed by the drawers are roughly lined up, far from perfect. Great for storage or just to achieve that Colonial look of the early 19th century.

18th C. Pennsylvania Tavern Table - In exceptional original robin's egg blue paint. Wonderful wear to the stretchers. Very tight - made well with pinned mortise & tenon construction. Very nice hand-cut detail on the stretchers as well as the legs. Note the rail above the drawer is missing but this does not alter functionality or appearance. Large dovetailed drawer with rather cool mousehole in the back of it. Drawer also retains it's original knob. Drawer sides as well as it's guides have been altered to keep it running smooth in and out. This repair is normal and in no way detracts from the appearance or value of this piece. No apologies for this base.
The top has been altered. It appears as though one section in the middle was cutout and then re-glued back up and Dutchmen put in on the underside. The original cleats and most of the top remain as there are still traces of the blue in places near the cleats. This explains why it seems about 8" narrower than it should be. Top made of maple with great patina and staining as you might expect. Pins to the top are missing.
This table is a super find and is stunning to look at as you can see from the photos. Any owner should be proud to own this, as we are. We date this table to around 1770 - 1790.
Measures: 53" long x 28" wide x 30" high. Very comfortable to sit at.

The following is reprinted from the "Old and Sold Antiques Auction & Marketplace - Country Furniture Part 4" article
"A low, two-seat settee may seem at first glance to have been made for children. It wasn't. Instead, it was a portable seat to be carried out and placed in the bed of a wagon for a comfortable ride to town. It is properly called a wagon seat. Actually, the seat was 14 or 15 inches from the floor, which is not much lower than the average chair. Wagon seats had two outer arms. Three uprights, each tipped with a finial and with slats, were used for two-seaters. The uprights and legs were sturdy and round with simple turnings; the stretchers were more slender. The wood was maple, hickory, or other hard varieties, and often two or more kinds were used. It was either painted or left its natural color. Seats were rush or woven splint. Believe it or not, some of these wagon seats had attached rockers.

Old repairs are found here and there, as expected. Some newer nails added over the years. A great display and storage piece in old blue. Hard to find!

19th C Hanging Wall Box with Drawer - .What can I say? Where have you seen one of these before? This early primitive box could be as early as 18th century but I am not positive. Look at the early hinges which were nailed in place and cinched over on the inside. Look at the early hand made eustachian on the door. Only wish the lock was still there (they never are). The top shelf is narrower than the other shelf and both shelves are dadoed into the sides. The knob on the drawer is most likely a replacement. The early paint is wonderful, showing appropriate wear and patina. Red paint wearing through to red primer beneath. 20th century brackets have been added to hang this piece but the original holes in the back where it used to hang from are still there and could/should be used.

"Shaker" Pantry Box - I am describing this as "Shaker" because this box has all the characteristics and design elements of a shaker box. Everything I know about Shaker boxes tells me this is Shaker. However it is not signed, so I can't be absolutely positive. The experts will know. If it truly is, then you know what it can be worth. I have photographed every possible detail and angle. You be the judge. I am offering this box at a reasonable price and will describe it, as usual, to the best of my ability.
The surface is an original dark green paint. The bottom oak band is thick, measuring 3/16". The oak buttons extend about 1" into the box and have wooden splints securing them in place. The inside and outside edges of the box as well as the lid band have been feathered, as would have been done by the Shakers. The top band is shaped and chamfered like a swallow tail, also a tell tail sign of Shaker. The swing handle is shaped and chamfered as well, in the form of a Shaker handle.
One may question whether there was additional nails added. The bottom band has 4 nails, 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom that are in addition to the nails that secure the band together. Judging by the shape of the nails as well as the oxidation of these nails on the inside (same as all the rest), I am of the opinion that these nails were used in the original construction of the box. Since this box is so thick, extra nails were required to secure the band. This is my opinion.
The top band did have some work done to it and one extra nail is suspect. With this box being so old, the top had shrunk in one dimension which would leave a small gap and perhaps weaken the top. I can see where small strips had been put in place to take up this gap, thereby tightening up the top. This repair is well done and difficult to notice but I mention it in the sake of accuracy.
This pantry box is by far the best I have ever offered for sale.
Measures 11 1/2" in diameter x 7 1/2" tall.

A note about Stoneware: It is not unusual to find 150 year old stoneware with minor dings and hairline cracks.
Stoneware was not originally intended as elegant, expensive objects created strictly for beauty and display. They were utilitarian goods meant to be used, as well as admired. Minor chips, age lines and repairs do not detract from the overall value or beauty of these highly collectable pieces. For more info on Stoneware in Western NY, click here.

19th C Painted Hanging Cupboard - Wonderful early hanging cupboard, nearly all original. The only non-original piece is the right top corner molding. Super original red paint, lock (intact), hinges, and knob. Appears as though the latch on the front was added after the key was lost. Judging from the wear, my guess is that key was lost decades ago or possibly this cabinet came with the latch as a back up closure mechanism. The door is made with a floating flat panel, housed in a mortise and tenon and pinned door frame. The face frame surrounding the door has a nice bead along the edge. . The back is chamfered into the hand cut dado's in the side panels. This is a well made, circa 1840, hanging wall cupboard in nearly original condition. The first few photos show the true color of this piece. Many of the close-up photos are meant to indicate the detail, not the color. Great find, and a great buy!

All square nailed. Super wear in all the right places. Please note, the left molding on the lid has been replaced. Many years ago the top must have closed on something and the left molding tore off leaving some damage on the top where the nails pulled through. Also some minor losses on the right side top molding.

19th Century Red Painted Grain Bin. Exceptional early grain bin in it's original Oxblood Red paint. All square nailed. 6 board chest consisting of 28" wide front and back boards. This is a rare find and to find a bin with boards this wide is exceptional.
The right side has a split in it as can be seen in the photo. Still solid and sound. The top's left hinge has an early repair to it from when someone threw open the top without supporting it and it must have tore the wood. The repair is early as it still retains the red paint. Also intriguing I found a set of mortises in the back board for hinges however no mating mortise in the top. I believe the top IS original to the piece as the wood is the same in color and grain as the rest of the boards. The existing hinges look to be original and are also mortised in. My guess is that the builder intended to use only 2 smaller hinges but then switched to a larger heavier hinge to support the large top.
This is a great piece of early Americana. We are glad that we were able to obtain it from where it was on display at the Hinckley Folk Art Museum in Ithica, NY.

Beehive turned from a foot treadle lathe with the original milk paint. Loaded with character, chop marks, and wear in all the right places. A bowl over 200 years old is sure to have some cracks. This one has one major crack that has been repaired and is under control so that no more checking will occur. Another crack on the other side does not go all the way to the edge and never will, as that has been wired tight as well. The repairs have been properly made and keep the integrity of this bowl intact.
