Lady's Side Chair 

English, c. 1680

Here's one for the purist! A side chair in old, dry finish with old, possibly period, upholstery. The hay stuffing of the seat is original, so is the webbing. You may not want to use it, but you'll love looking at it: a really good thing to own. Picked from a private house in N. Maine where it has been for generations, and straight to us.

Adam and Eve Alms Dish 

Dutch, 16th c.

One of the best -- and it's from the Netherlands, not Nuremberg! Beautifully soft, well-worn depiction of the Temptation of Eve, with a little rabbit who's turned his back on the whole affair. Dutch inscription, VREEST GODT means "Fear God," but the rest is Dutch to me! Punched decoration around rim. Perhaps the ears of wheat and the rabbit symbolize the fertility of Paradise.

Wainscot Arm Chair 

Northwest England, c.1675

A powerful chair with profuse carving in a pleasing design -- the sort of back you can look at long and often and still not grow tired of it. The sturdy split balusters on the stiles are an unusual touch. Rich, deep color with good wear on seat and arms.
