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 large and elaborate painted sewing box, circa 1830-40.

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!
