A simply incredible joined Pilgrim Century two drawer blanket chest. From the Connecticut River Valley this Hadley style piece is in amazing condition. The top is an early replacement with the knobs also restored as is one small board in the bottom drawer. Surface is mellow and dry. The chest retains full height with the original feet.....NO ENDINGS. 


                        RACHET CANDLE STAND

Probably made in the early part of the 20th Century, the dry surface and great form looks perfect with the earliest of furniture.  The stand adjusts almost 10" in height from the lowest setting to the highest notch.  Besides using this next to a chair, it would be perfect next to the hearth. Size is 14 1/2" x 14 3/4" top x 26 1/2" High at lowest point and 34 1/2" High at the top of the rachet.


                             HANGING CUPBOARD


Measuring 30 1/2" High x 20 3/4" Wide and just 7 1/4" Deep, the hanging cupboard was dry scraped to its original surface. Great piece for the kitchen or bathroom, it has a wire hanger that goes through the side of the cupboard and is on the top of two of the shelves. I know if pieces could only talk we would know why this was done.  It has nothing to do with the structure. A guess...perhaps....to hang something inside? The 2 side moldings are long gone but hinges are original.



For those who LOVE leather, this is sure your piece. An old and still usable leather seat is on the neatest dry red stool. the stool, I believe, was once a chair that may have lost part of its back and the "waste not,want not" theory took over. It is 16" Wide x 13" Deep x 14" High.




Just a simple country mirror with its original black painted frame and nice old mirror glass. The frame has cut nails, the original back board, spline corners and is 9 1/8" wide x 11" high.



Found and made in Illinois this cute little stool says:

Homer Sharp


Jan 17,1978

For sitting only

Straddle it

Don't stand on it

The stool is 13 1/4" wide x 8 1/2" deep x 15" high.


                                 SAWBUCK TABLE

Perfect for seating 8 people comfortably, this early and glorious sawbuck was found in Massachusetts. It has early "T" and rosehead nails and remains of a darker surface long gone. Both ends are usable for sitting. One of the bottom stretchers was replaced a very long time ago. Top has breadboard ends and is one board. Size: 72 1/4" long x 281/4" wide x 27" high. I have enjoyed this table in my house for many years. It was pictured in The Settlement by Jill Peterson on page 47.


                             BUTCHERING TABLE


If I wanted a work table in the middle of my kitchen, this would be the piece. It is 52" Long x 31" High x 12" Deep. Solid as a rock you could mix, chop or serve from it. Nice dark surface and wonderful wear to top.


                           X BASE CANDLESTAND

Found in a camp in Maine this X Base Candlestand retains its original red wash surface and the best notched heavy feet. It is 29 1/2" high x 14 3/8 x 14 14" diameter top. A bit of glue was added to tighten up the top and base of the shaft but all pieces are original.


                               BOOK STAND

Another piece from my own collection is a period book stand. It has great turnings and nice detail on the stretchers. Feet and top have been restored. The top measures 16 1/4" wide x 12" high with the front height at 7 1/2" and the back height is 12 3/4".


                               THREE LEG TABLE

Probably made in the late 1940's or 1950's, this table is extremely usable and looks fantastic with early things. Turnings on the legs are great and the size is 27 1/2" high x 26 1/2" x 26 1/2" top diameter making it perfect between 2 chairs or for eating.


                         X BASE CANDLESTAND


The candlestand has the best dry natural surface and all the pieces and parts started life together. Found in New England it has a metal band with square nails wrapped around the top, I guess, to hold the two board top together. Stand appears to be early 18th Century and is 23" high with a top that is 15" x 14 3/4" in diameter.
