In the late 19th Century, families loved to decorate for holidays and seasons. Fall was a season of harvest and Halloween was a popular time of year. This decorated face Pumpkin creamer has ribs that are painted green from not quite maturing. A green handle resembling the vine and a face can be seen on the screen that is both funny and interesting. The collector of figurals would find this interesting.

When viewing this image of Braces Cove you can almost feel the mist against the rocks the original label from the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts in 1925.

Oil on board and the painting has always been behind glass has never been cleaned and is in great condition.

Many travelers took trips on junks or junques depending on your spelling in the Orient. These sail boats usually navigated inland waterways and were considered essential measues of transportation in the early to mid 20th century. This image shows figures with light reflecting in the water and the scene is very blue and green toned with the moon light almost in the center. The character markings on the left side have not been translated, the frame is original and would be period 50s and there is no doubt this is a 50+ year old piece.
This book is in fair condition showing some wear. It shows some great recipes such as Sour Cream Banana Pecan Cake. I believe that the front cover is also missing from this book. It has 266 pages. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

This advertising toy trailer notes that Moving-Packing-Storage from Wyandotte Van Lines Coast to Coast is available with this trailer. I purchased this from the original seller, no tractor was available, the paint would have to be 90% original and in excellent condition. The wheels are rubber and have some chips to them but certainly move with no problems. This would be an excellent desk accessory for a mover.

This etching is of a desert flower called Spanish Bayonet. It is done in either brown ink or black ink browned with age. It is etched on brown paper and has an off white matting. The picture depicts a Spanish Bayonet on a mountain or hill. There is some other plant life around including cacti and there are some small rocks. Overall a nice piece suitable for a western decor or a western art lover. Richardson Rome was a well known Colorado artist who is listed in most major references on American Artists.

This image of a large ship in port with rowboats along the side is one of calm waters that shows beutiful reflections of the boats in the water by the artist. The boats refections are captured in a very still moment and the effect is one of a picture frozen in time. This is the third of a series by the same artist.

This photo seems to date from the late 1930s to early 1940s based on clothing styles. The lady is wearing a polka dot dress with large dark colored lapel and the man is in a dark coat with a V necked geometric pattern sweater with a figured design. The table in front shows a bouillon soup cup, china plate, an animal of some sort floral or plant holder and the effect is one of nostalgia. There are some age marks to the sides of the paper of the backing to the photo, but the photo itself seems to be in good condition. The frame has wood showing through on the silver surface, and this could easily be someones family members that are ready to adopt. This could easily be a wedding or honeymoon photo.

A highly desirable pair of 19th century American Pigeon Blood colored glass salt and pepper shakers these are one of the ultimate for collectors of Victorian glassware. Pigeon Blood is a much darker color than Cranberry and very little was made in factories in the Northeastern US. The depth of this color is unbelievable and the richness is not shown in the picture.
