Rare Civil War One Piece Carved Maple Smoking Pipe. It is dated “1863" with the soldiers name of P. Little”. According to a search by the family on, it states that he was in the 153rd PA Regiment, recruited in Northampton County, PA, moved to Camp Curtin, Harrisburg October 6; thence to Washington DC October 1862 where he was attached 1st Brigade, 1st Division, 11th Army Corps, Army of the Potomac, for the Defenses of Washington DC till December 1862. There is a bit more info that we have, and we will give All of it to the purchaser. It is in excellent condition with a wonderful old patina, and it measures just over 6” long.

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!
