Gruel Bowl 

English, Mid-18th Century

A good mid-sized bowl from an English collection (and with an "English" finish). The collector described it as a gruel bowl, but it could have held any liquid or sloppy food! It is simply decorated with two pairs of rings, and has a glowing, well polished surface. Nicely out-of-round with plenty of signs of wear and use.

Eating Bowl 

English, Sussex county, 1750-1800.

A footed food bowl in a soft, mellow color. A similar bowl exactly the same size is illustrated in Pinto's Treen for the Table, p.150. Pinto believed that bowls of this form were all made in the same Sussex farmhouse over a long time period. Purchased from Edward Pinto by the Charlton Collection in 1966 for 5 pounds, (collection label on bottom). From there to a specialist dealer to Fiske and Freeman. Sales receipt from Pinto available to purchaser.

Dry Goods Measure 

English, 17th/18th c.

Deep patina on both wood and iron - it makes you want to stroke it! Scalloped iron top rim held by iron straps, iron foot rim, hanging ring. Dug out construction, not turned. The red painted ring just below the waist is old, possibly original -- some sort of filling guide perhaps?

Snuff Ladle 

English, late 18th c.

Nice little tool for filling a personal snuffbox from the storage jar. Finely turned oak bowl, balleen handle with a spiral twist. All in a dark, glowing surface. A good insight into times gone by, and today, just another useless but beautiful antique to bring you pleasure!

Sickler's Hand Guard 

Scottish, 18th/19th c.

Nothing rude about this gesture! This rare harvest tool was worn on the left hand of a man using a sickle to harvest barley or oats. It held the stalks up, making them easier to cut while ensuring that none of his fingers joined them on the ground! The three finger holes are perfectly sized for the middle finger, ring finger and pinkie. We're sure the medieval sickler shown here would have liked one on his left hand.
