It's always exciting to find an American Pilgrim Chest. This one is from the North Shore of Massachusetts and is about 1680 to 1700. The feet and lid are original and a few age related repairs exist. At some point in its life it has been resurfaced.
With a totally awesome surface in deep brown, the 17th Century Spanish table is a wonderful addition to any collection. Absolutely in as found condition there are no replacements and the surface is very old if not original.
HANGING PIE SAFE
Grain and paint decorated this pie safe is in totally untouched condition. Even the screening is original. There are hanging ropes but this cupboard also works nicely on top of a table. It measures 31" wide x 40" high x 18" deep.
Just a simple chair with original surface. Usable anywhere. I think, they work really neat close to a hearth. A few repairs due to use and age.
Found and made in Illinois this cute little stool says:
For sitting only
Don't stand on it
The stool is 13 1/4" wide x 8 1/2" deep x 15" high.
This Bible /Document Box is a nice small size. It is 18 1/2" wide x 11" deep x 7" high. It is late 17th to early 18th Century and English. There are initials on the back and it retains the original snipe hinges although the hasp is long gone.
BOOK REST OR STAND
In the very best dry untouched surface this book stand looks amazing with a leather book resting on its top. It is 19th Century but looks good with even early things including Pilgrim. Size is 15" wide x 13" deep x 4 1/2" high in front x 6 1/4" high at back.
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.
BETTY LAMP STAND
Great dry surface and in untouched condition the betty lamp stand is a rare find. Even the hanging peg is the original. Measuring 39"high x 20" x 20" base. Standing next to a chest or chair this 18th Century piece looks fantastic.
CHILD'S WAINSCOT ARM CHAIR
Actually made in about the 1920's, this chair sure appears a lot earlier and works so well with period 17th Century pieces. Perfect with a poppet sittiing in the chair. Be sure to notice the wonderful inlay on the back. It is 28" high x 21" wide x 20" deep.
PAIR OF CHARLES II CHAIRS
Deaccessioned from Deerfield many years ago, the Charles II chairs are solid and very easy to sit in around a table. Professional restoration added iron straps to keep them from swaying as so many of these can do. One of the pair has lost its ball on the bottom of the feet and one of the finial nipples. The chairs have old black paint and the caning is in perfect condition.
Talk about a "GREAT" chair! This early 17th Century chair was once upholstered in silk which except for a tiny left between the tacks on the back is long gone. Sadly silk doesn't age well. The leather seat was added recently. A Tudor rose is in the center of the bottom stretcher. Measuring 46" high x 28" wide x 16 1/4" deep it is a very comfortable chair for most anyone. The frame is a very mellow and dry most likely original surface.
HANGING CORNER CUPBOARD
With shaped shelves and fluted columns, this hanging corner cupboard is truly elegant. In natural surface it is pine from New England and dates from the late 18th Century to the early 19th Century. It is a perfect size measuring 42 1/2" high x 26" wide x 19" deep.
Yes, another book stand in super attic surface and a little smaller then the other one pictured above. This is in perfect condition and also great to display an early leather book. It is 13" wide x 9" deep x 3" high in the front and 6" high at the back.
A rarely seen Colonial Spanish Bench with the best carving and spindles. An old mellow surface the bench sits very well and is extremely solid. Written on the back are several Spanish words which I am trying to get translated.
