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!

Pistol-form Boot Jack 

English, c.1775

This is a rare object, possibly made for a military campaign. An ingenious woodworker came up with this pistol-form portable boot jack! Similar examples of these jacks are illustrated in Pinto's Book of Treen and Other Wooden Bygones, plate 246.

Treen Goblet 

English, mid-18th c.

Tall cylindrical goblet decorated with turned, three-ring bands on the cup and two-ring bands on the foot. Good old surface, a warm, medium-to-dark honey color (minor wear on surface.) Ex Edward Pinto collection (by good repute, no documentation.)
