Measurements: TOP DIAMETER: 1 7/8" - approx. BASE DIAMETER: 1" (base shape is actually triangular) - HEIGHT: 1"
In good condition without chips, flakes, cracks.
The size indicates that this is an individual salt dish or salt cellar. An individual salt dish was placed at each table setting; then a larger, master salt would be placed in the center of the table or at each end. Very Victorian and/or Edwardian table dressing.

Dating approximately to the late 1800's - very early 1900's.
Clearly marked as "sterling" with the Unger Brothers intertwined UB logo.
Strong Art Nouveau design - very three dimensional and detailed.
Faintly monogramed with the Gothic letter "M."
Some dimpling around the edges - after 100 years of use!
As with all of my vintage items, this brush was photographed unpolished, but will polish beautifully.

Measurements: TOTAL WEIGHT: 9.5 oz. - LENGTH: 12.5" - approximate DIAMETER OF BOWL: 4"
This is one of the most beautiful and ornate of the Art Nouveau designs produced by the Gorham Silver Company in the late 1800's. The design is a combination of all that is Art Nouveau: shells, scrolls, leaves, flowers, fruit, puti and a semi nude woman holding a lyre...
Measurements: BASE: 14.5" x 11" - LETTER BOX: 12" x 5" - Glass INKWELLS: 2.5" square x 3" tall
Lacquered tartan paper over wood, forming an inkstand, pen tray and standing mail or stationery holder. I believe that the pattern is Stewart.
Dating to 1880-1910.
In lovely condition with a few tiny scuff marks - consistent with age and usage. See photo #3 and #4 for a close up view of the age crackled surface.
No missing paper...
Measurements: LENGTH: 44" - HEIGHT - 23" - DIAMETER PIPE: 5/8"
Molded sheet copper with lovely, original verdigris patina except on the end of the arrow feathers.
No damages (such as bullet holes), but it would appear that the top of the vane has been repaired with (probably) lead solder used to re-create the original finial form. (photo#4)

Millstones, or mill stones, are hand shaped stones used in 19th century grist mills, for grinding wheat or other grains.
When mounted on a display stand, the mill stone becomes a true example of primitive American folk art - reminiscent of elega...
Measurements: DIAMETER: 4/1/2"- DEPTH: 7/8" (including tripod legs)
This small sculpture is made of cast bronze with an artist's signature on the back, which is partially illegible (no foundry mark). I can read: "W.H. JR" and the lower case letters "o - m - e."
The sculpted bas relief is very three dimensional and very detailed without any of the blurring seen in less well made castings. All edges are rounded and smooth; beautifully finished...
Measurements: Optic DIAMETER: 2.5" - Handle LENGTH: 6"
This is a fantastic "make do" - a combination of a 19th century carved ivory cane or umbrella handle added to an elegant modern magnifier with excellent optics. The metal surround is of brass, as is the decorative banding.
Beautiful creamy color to the handle after years of use. The only flaw I found is a small surface hairline just under the grape cluster which does NOT go through the handle, but is slightly visible...
Measurements: HEIGHT: 5.5" - WIDTH: 9" at the greatest width - DEPTH: 10" - RECTANGULAR BASE: 7.5" x 4.5" - HANDLE: 2" when raised - WEIGHT: 1 pound 10 ounces

Measurements: - 6.5" x 7" x 1 1/4" deep - 5" x 5" opening
I believe that the wooden layers are of either cigar box wood or other vintage thin wood packaging such as a box to hold soap.
All in good, solid condition. The thin strips of wood forming the back of the holder for the image is also original. Not original, is the metal hanger (you can see the two holes where the original hanger must have been) and my metal points holding the image in place...
Measurements: HEIGHT: 4.5" x WIDTH: 8" x DEPTH: 5.5"
Made from old wooden cigar boxes of German origin.
Each intricate pyramid is made up of nine layers of hand carved, notched cigar wood. Each side of the box is designed with 4 matched smaller pyramid shapes in each corner with a larger central pyramid.
The interior lid is lined with old paper...
