Rare early Velocipede Baby Carriage. We have never had one of these before so it was very exciting to find this one. When the carriage is pushed in either direction the original full bodied horse hide covered horse rocks up and down. The woman that we bought this from bought it over 45 years ago while driving down Delaware Avenue in Buffalo. It was in the window of a very exclusive children's clothing shop that was going out of business. She stopped and asked if they would sell it to her and lucky for her they said yes. She has owned it all this time. It measures a large 62” long from horse hoof to back handle.. You just don't see these offered for sale very often. WOW!

Pair of extremely well made handled baskets with alternating dark and light splints. These are slightly larger than what I would categorize as miniature, but they are very, very small. They are in mint condition and measure as follows: Larger – 6” x 5 ½” x 5 ¾” to top of handle. Smaller – 5” x 4 ½” x 5 ¼” to top of handle. They are 19th century and were discovered packed away in an attic. Made by the same hand and we believe them to be of N.Y. origin. GREAT!!! Sold as a pair.




 

Very unusual as well as visual large Writing Arm Arrow Back Windsor Chair. This big old chair is circa 1840. It appears that the whole chair was painted in the gray color of the writing arm as a primer/sealer and then the arm was covered over in oil or sail cloth, and the rest of the chair was painted with a mustard colored heavily pigmented shellac. It still retains this great old color and nicely patinated surface on most of the chair. A great old piece of furniture!
