Very Appealing Double Shelf Wall Box from the Mohawk Valley Region of New York State, circa Early 1800s. Clearly this Wall Box has been around for a while and is Hand Made. Note that both Cut Nails for the Smaller Boards and Square Nails for the Larger Boards are used with its construction. The Hanging Hole appears hand carved and displays long use. The Reddish Stain or Thin Paint appears to be Original, and the Drip Mark on the Lower Shelf suggests that it has not been refinished. Along with Typical Age Wear, the Small Break on the right side of the Top Shelf has been Glued and Held with a Small Nail at some point in its history. The Bottom Box measures 11 ¼” in width and 4” in depth; the Smaller Top Box measure 8” in width and 3 ¼” in depth; the Total Height is approximately 11 ½”. Form, Color, and Age make this an Excellent Wall Box for any Collector.

Lovely Little Slide Top Spice Box, New England, circa Early – Mid 1800s. This Little Spice Box is divided into 4 Compartments with a Slide Top Cover, similar to the design of early Candle Boxes. It is in its Original Condition with Lapped Joint Construction held in place with Early Cut Nails. Especially appealing are the Marking Gauge Lines the Maker Created for the Corners to determine the Placement of the Nails and the Layout of the Two Finger Grips for the Slide Top. The Patina of this piece is Outstanding and the Character of its Age is Impeccable. The only Minor Age Flaw is a Slight Sliver of Wood off one end of the Slide Top which is unseen when the top is closed. Measurements: 7” in length, 5”+ in width, and 2 ¼” in height. A Wonderful Addition to Any Country Collection.

Nice 19th Century Hand Made Oak Splint Storage Basket with Notched Bow Handles and Alternating Blue Dyed Weavers, possibly Native American in Origin. A double rim with single wrapping was used at the top and the bottom splints were left open, so the basket could breathe. It may well have been used to hold dry herbs. Aside from Minor Age Wear and a Small Split to the Edge of one of the Bow Handles (not a full break), the Basket is in Excellent Condition. Measurements: 11” in length, 7 ½” in width, and 4 ½” in height (the handles come up another 1 ¼”).
