Tudor Horseshoe 

English, 16th c.

Known as a "tongue" horseshoe from the shape of the void in the center. Excavated during construction in the 1970s. From an English collection. Hang this over the door and your horses will all be winners, and you'll have no problems with witches turning your milk sour. We promise!

Bartmann or "Bellarmine" 

Rhine Valley, c.1575

An exceptional Bartmann (with restoration.) A fine and large bearded mask, a waist band of Germanic script, six molded profile portraits and eight molded acanthus leaves. It's so good and so rare that we couldn't pass on it. It is priced at less than half of what we'd ask if it were in original condition.

Pedestal Salt 

English, c.1670

Small pedestal salt of good form, made even more attractive by its dings and wonkiness -- the result of age and a working life. Touchmark: IR inside crown, dated "??70"

Small Pricket Stick 

Spain/Portugal, c.1635

Look at the perfect progression through the compressed ball, the ring and the baluster on the stem -- artistry. Good capstan-form base and well turned drip pan. These smaller prickets were domestic: it's the larger ones that were ecclesastical.

Capstan Candleholder 

Spain, c.1550

A full size capstan of perfect traditional form: no bells and whistles, just plain and honest.. Large, square ejector hole with authentic wear. We often wonder why taste changed to prefer tall candlesticks -- these capstans have an appealing sturdiness, and are impossible to knock over. Go with the capstan!
