Early large black bale-handled pantry box with folk art design

This is a wonderful example of a folk art bale-handled pantry box. The pantry box is a nice size, 11 3/4 x 7 1/4” tall, for beautiful display. The black paint is original, as is the polychrome flowers and foliage. The box also has paint on the inside, which most likely occurred at a later time. The box is in very good condition with only a minor crack, a small divot peg pop and a small piece of band missing on the top. The box also retains its original varnish that has oxidized and hardened to create a nice crazing/alligatoring effect. Ca. mid-19th century.

Minor damage to the two smallest as shown. More photos are available. A rare chance to buy a stack of five 19th century pantry boxes in beautiful blue paint. From a private collection.

Early Storekeeper's Desk

Unusual storekeeper's desk; it is made of pine with original red paint, having interior drawers in original olive green paint. Ca. 1820, Vermont. It shows normal wear for its age, with a few sturdy cracks and chips (left rear foot) that do not disturb the integrity of the chest. Mostly original hardware, with some very old repairs to hinges. The desk was clearly used often. The inside olive drawer knobs are original, but two have been moved slightly up or down to create a new working hole for the knobs. I also believe this desk sat with the left side exposed to heat and/or moisture, based on differences in paint color in places on that side and some cracking at the back left foot. I do not believe anything has been done to the paint on this piece. Black-lighting, though not foolproof, shows no discrepancies. This amazing desk is sturdy and beautiful. I have never seen a desk like this one; it is beautiful to see and explore and an excellent conversation piece. Wonderful and original piece for a collector.
Dimensions: 38" wide by 38.5" tall by 24-1/4" deep

Hollow cut silhouette of a young man

An extremely fine profile hollow-cut silhouette of a young man. Excellent detail. Early hollow-cut paper laid on black. Early 19th Century, in a tiger maple frame. Possibly Pennsylvania, Circa 1820-1840. The sitter is identified on the back paper as "THOMAS BURNAP," but authenticity and accuracy is not something I can verify.
Excellent condition without rips or tears; there is only the most minor of spotting on the early laid paper.
It was professionally re-framed and conserved by the last owners in its original tiger maple frame.
Frame is 6" tall and 5" wide, sight is 4" by 3". Typical wear and imperfections with age. Very minor foxing and staining as seen.

Large cranberry red wooden bowl

This beauty measures 17" and is a late 1800s bowl in very good condition. The cranberry red wash is old, though I don't know how old. This bowl was found in a home in Indiana and appears to have been used mostly as decoration over the years. Photos were taken outside, so there are shadows that appear but are not part of the bowl.
