Covered Tobacco Bowl 

Dutch, c.1730

Striking bowl and cover, probably for tobacco originally, but now for cookies, rose petals or whatever. The finial will catch your eye wherever you put the bowl. Re-lacquered -- the interior was lacquered to prevent the wood from absorbing the moisture in the tobacco. It'll now do the same for your cookies.

Cup and Cover 

English., c. 1700

Magnificent -- there's no other word for it. A huge cup and cover, as large as anything you'll find in lignum vitae. It's in an old, unpolished finish, but would polish up if wanted.

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!
