PILGRIM BLANKET CHEST
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.
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.
The English table is just the right size to be used in many places. It's top is one board and appears to be replaced but a long time ago. Dating from the early 19th Century or possibly earlier, it is 18" high with the top being 20" x 26 1/2".
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:
For sitting only
Don't stand on it
The stool is 13 1/4" wide x 8 1/2" deep x 15" high.
In amazingly great condition this water keg would be a great addition to a buttery or keeping room. All the bands are in good shape and both original pegs in the top are there. It is 25 1/2" high and has a top diameter of 12 1/2" and a bottom diameter of 10 1/2". This was found in Southern Illinois.
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.
Found in Rhode Island, a neccessary chair was in every household that could afford the finer things. Probably English the surface is crusty and the back has wonderful panels. Put a cushion on the seat and use it in any room but I love them in a bedroom. One leg was repaired solidly and the back legs as with so many early chairs are ended.
