S&H included for US sales (all others contact us  first)
Vintage Cast Iron Embossed Piano Plaque / Sign "Jacob Brothers" New York

Antique Walnut Light Box - Medical? Photography? One of a Kind? - $445.00

<-- Click image to left for more pics
S&H included for US sales (all others contact us  first)
Antique Walnut Slide? Negative? or X Ray viewing box cabinet?
Beautifully constructed early 20 century walnut Illuminator. Walnut with raised panel side and back and the door on the side is also paneled. Missing the lighting fixture. There's a side door to change the bulbs. Painted black and white inside to reflect more light. (looks to be painted afterwards) The white translucent glass diffuser could have been slid into either of 2 levels.

I do not know what this piece was used for. From its construction it was to display an 8" X10" glass plate. And in a walnut cabinet with raised beveled panels it would have been appropriate for a place where it would be viewed and matched similar furniture. While it looks like it could have been part of an early camera, I see no place for any other attachments. My guess is for viewing x-rays though at least one person who knows something about x-ray viewers felt differently. I usually can count on ebay viewers to enlighten me, so I'm hoping someone has some suggestions.

The tray that holds the 8" X 10" plate has a wonderful mechanism that allows you to rotate the glass plate about 110 degrees. Why 110 degrees? My guess is that unlike a photograph, the details of an xray might be more revealing or easier to perceive if it's turned a bit.

Cabinet has 2 holes in the bottom for the wires. The fact that there were 2 wires for a single light, would possibly indicate an early electrical application, prior to the standard 2 wire lamp cords found in most lamps.

The top and bottom are constructed in a way that indicates they would not have been seen. Their construction is similar to stacking file cabinets that I have seen and the width is about right to sit on top of such a cabinet. Though I don't know how the wires would have fit where they've been drilled. Perhaps the lower cabinet would also have needed to be drilled through. It is possible that this was made by a manufacturer as a one-off to the specs of a client.

One other mystery is the single piece of molding on the left front of the cabinet. My feeling is that it allowed the physician to hold an xray plate up and lean against the molding for instant viewing without having to take the time to load it on the rotating shelf.

15 3/4 " deep + molding on left side
18 3/8 ""wide + end of plate tray and knobs
20 1/8" high

<-- Click image to left for more pics
S&H included for US sales (all others contact us  first)
Ephemera. I don't know if it was a common practice in 1930 to advertise movies scheduled at the theater on a paper bag, but I know it's quite uncommon to save the bag. The Strand in Lowell ran from 1917 to 1974
The bag is a brown pin striped bag with a slight waxy feel.

Condition: small piece missing on bottom (approx. 1/8" X 3/4") Top has several creases and tears with a triangle missing approx. 1 1/2" X 1 1/2"

Vintage Walden Wrench Partitioned Hardware Store Box - shelving display - $55.00

<-- Click image to left for more pics
S&H included for US sales (all others contact us first)
Oak, Pine (poplar ?), and galvanized steel - early to mid 20th century.
This was used in a hardware store for selling hardware. Originally, this was a partitioned drawer for holding wrenches. But turn it sideways and it makes a nice shelf for small miniatures and other knick knacks. You can remove some of the partitions for shelf for bigger items. (though they're in pretty tightly).
On the oak side of this box is stamped the logo for Walden Worcester Wrenches. On the other side, prices and sizes are pencilled in. On one end is a plate which would have been used as the front of the box to hold the contents title. Confused? the pictures will clarify all.
14" X 9" X 3 3/4"

S&H included for US sales (all others contact us first)

These boxes were once used for stock items from a hardware store in Easthampton MA. Probably early to mid 20th century. There's a painted yellow square that was then stamped for listing inventory. Would make nice staging shelves for your collectibles.

Vintage Pair of Brass and Iron Horse Hames - $52

<-- Click image to left for more pics
S&H included for US sales (all others contact us  first)
Rustic condition - the iron has pitted, but leaves an antique decorative look to it. - A relic of times gone by. Very nice heavy brass castings with a nice old patina. While I am selling them as a pair, and they are very similar, the brass rings are spaced differently apart and have slightly different shapes. I suspect that the person I had gotten them from had split 2 pair by accident.
22" long
4 1/2 lbs. (7 lbs. shipping wt.)

They still have many repurposed possibilities. Would make a great hangers for pots and pans in a farmhouse style country kitchen. Or hang plants from them in the porch or sunroom. I can picture them as Sign hangers for a tavern or antiques store. Or maybe you have an even better use?

Antique vintage Iron flag holder - $32 incl. S&H

<-- Click image to left for more views.

While this flag pole holder only has one hole to screw it to a base, as you can see in one of the pictures, it's perfectly balanced to sit on a rail. There's old tar which makes me wonder if this may have mounted on a buggy or ship?

S&H included for US sales (all others contact us first)

The other side says, "Standard Family Size Galvanized No. 2090 Manufactured by Columbus Washboard Co. Columbus, Ohio." Overall dimensions 12 1/2" X 23 3/4"

Antique Pine Baby Sled Frame - $69.00 includes S&H;

Click image to left for more views.
This frame is made from 1/2" wide pine boards. It is 28" long, 15 1/2" wide, and 13 3/4" high. The back was cracked a long time ago, and was repaired with the 2 iron bars you see pictured. I would assume the 2 small pieces of wood that are visible at the back of this were the arms that held the handles. If this is the case, someone cut it a long while ago, because where it was cut has darkened with age. Also as you will note, there is no bottom.

This must have been a very sweet sled in its day. Even if left as is, it would make a great display for dolls or other small friends.

Forged Iron Buggy Step - $21.00 includes S&H

Could be a conversation piece as a plant stand.

Antique Oriental Carved Panel: 2 Birds w/Blossoms - $95.00 includes S&H

Click image to left for more views.

This is a beautiful 2 sided relief carving. It's viewable from both sides, although there is less detail on the carved back side. As you can see there are pieces missing off the top and a few spaces in the middle as well. There are also 3 or 4 cracks that should be relatively easy to reglue. The carving on the flowers is a beautiful example of low relief carving and incorporates the feeling of real movement in the petals.
Dimensions: 18" high by 36" wide. A nice addition to any wall.

I have saved this for a long time, hoping I'd find time to do some minor restoration and then display it. It looks so nice, even incomplete. But now I'm pretty sure I won't find that time. There is a slight reveal inside the frame that could accept a piece of glass (or plexi) on either side if you wanted to display it with both sides showing.

Wizard Oscillating Electric Fan -$47.00 includes S&H

Click image to left for more views.
Just in time for the summer? This "Wizard" oscillating (reciprocating) electric fan has a really cool streamline-shaped base and chromed accents, including a chrome vertical stripe in the front of the base which is not visible in the pictures. Even the control knob has a rocket futuristic look to it. This is being sold as is. There is no chord. There is also a screw missing on the bottom. The picture of the bottom also shows how it was designed to be wall mounted as well as sitting on a table top.
It is also hard to see in these photos the word "Wizard on the center of the cage, or the information that is on the base - which says, "Wizard 105-120V 55W Model 45K - 60 cycles Bersted Mfg. Co. Fostoria Ohio Oakville Ont. Canada.
DIMENSIONS: 15 1/4" tall - The diameter of the cage is 13 1/2" - The Fan blades measure 12" end to end.

Never used. We took these out of the box when they were given to us brand new. We never set them up. Just put them back in the box and stuck them in the closet till we had a good place to use them. As you might guess, that never happened. That could easily have been over 20 years ago.

Primitive Vintage Penny Wooden Folk Doll - $49.00

<-- Click image to left for more pics
S&H included for US sales (all others contact us  first)
Sweet primitive painted face. Some of the black hair is scuffed.
Approx. 12" tall
Also known as peg wooden and dutch dolls The hinge for her right shoulder was broken. I made a new one (as seen in photos). Her left arm and right leg come out. This would need new pegs or pins to hold these in place, as would the replacement piece. I opted to leave them as is, because it gives more flexibility for positioning her. Her right shoulder is missing a chunk on the back, but the dowel I made is long enough to still work fine.
Simply carved. The joints are crudely made and stiff.
I do not know the history of this particular doll. I have had several of this same exact style. Wikipedia attributes this design to peg wooden dolls from Val Gardena, late 19th century. Even the diamond shape that takes the peg / pin on the back of the should looks the same. My guess is that this particular doll may not be as old as that - They probably made them for a number of years. Anyway, we've owned this since the 1970s and it was not new then.
