This is a homemade, one of a kind, “Farm House Winsor Chair” that has found itself not only serving as a seat, but has also become a wonderful piece of primitive folk art. You really need to see this piece in person to understand it fully. Note the original BLUE paint on the plank seat and the beautiful patina on the rest. On the bottom of the seat it is carved, May 6, 1865. Originally found in Central NY.

Here is an unusual 19th century Frakture Type Watercolor in its original paint decorated frame. It is a large piece with lovely geometric decorations at the top as well as the bottom. The wording is all done in German and when I showed it to a friend who reads a bit of German he said it was a poem for a house blessing. There is a bit of paper loss at the bottom but the rest is so strong it carries itself just fine. It measures a large 16 ½” x 25” including the frame.

This is a 19th century game board in really nice original three color paint. This is a really good old board but this board has everything to do with the wonderful dry surface. It measures 19” x 27”.




 

Ash Burl Bowl, circa 1800. This bowl has been in a local private collection for over 60 years. It has a wonderful form and measures approximately 8 ½” in diameter x 3 ¼” deep. I really like the tapered sides and the little footed area. It is in excellent condition with a beautiful patina too, never varnished. You can see in the photo that there is a small hole where a not fell out at some time long ago. Just part of the history.

It measures 12” high to the top of the finial x just over 8” in diameter.

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!
