Hand decorated wood toolboxThis is a wooden box with bold, folky hand-painted decoration. It has a hinged lid and a metal hasp. The box is painted silver that has aged and oxidized to gray, with black and green decoration on the top. The maker has put the initials of all his family inside a painted boot. There is also an ace of spades, a bird, a Maltese cross, and much more. The paint appears to date from the 1920s or 30s; the box could be older than that. It is 29 3/4" wide by 8 1/2" high by 16 1/2" deep. It is in good, used condition. There is a chip missing from the front edge, some age splits, and minor paint wear. The hasp was replaced before the box was painted. The price is $325.00. Inventory Code: TRRH.   See a slideshow of several views [744k] ... Painted tool box ... Another view ... Lid open ...

Home made grain scoopThis is a primitive, make-do scoop for grain, animal feed, etc. It was hand made from part of a metal sign, with a wooden back and hand carved wood handle. The metal has worn yellow, gold, red, and black paint. The handle has a nice smooth patina from use. It is 15" long by 7 1/4" wide by 2 1/2" deep, in good, sturdy, used condition with appropriate paint wear and light rust. It was made in the first half of the 20th century. The price is $135.00. Inventory Code: CSST.   See a slideshow of several views [535k] ... Home made grain scoop ... Back views ... Another view ... Side views ... Sides, from back ... Closeup of handle ...

Bottle cap basketThis is nice looking bottle cap basket with good color and form. It is old, sturdy and very functional. It is about 12" high by 10 1/4" wide and 8" deep and was constructed from old, cork-lined caps. Probably made in the 1940's or 50's, it has been more recently repainted. It is in very good condition, although it has a slight break in the bottom rim. That is still strong. The price is $175.00. Inventory Code: THSK.   Bottle cap basket ... Turned a little ...

This is a very strange metal and wood contraption. We believe it was used as a parade torch or flambeau. It looks like an old (possibly) oil can was attached to a metal holder with forked swing arms. A wood round "handle"? was inserted in the end. The metalwork is attractive, and it is unusual and decorative. (It was formerly displayed on a wall). This piece is old, probably early 1900's and in good shape. It is 33" long. From the collection of Herbert Hemphill. The price is $85.00. Inventory Code: ARPH.   Overall image ... Closeup ...

Tiny bottle whimseyThis is the tiniest ship bottle whimsey we have ever seen. It is constructed in a bottle which is just over an inch high (1 3/8" with the stopper) and 11/16" in diameter: about the size of a dime. The opening through which the base was constructed and painted, and the boat made and rigged is about 3/16". All of the photos are bigger than the real bottle. It is in sturdy condition. The price is $95.00. Inventory Code: TTOC.   Two views, one with a dime ... One side ... The other side ... Back ... From above ... From below.

Here is a nice, simple, attractive hand carved cane which was then painted a deep reddish brown with fine black striping. It has a metal ferrule on the tip with the number 908 painted on in white. It has been used, but is in very good, sturdy condition with only a little wear. It seems to be about 60 or 70 years old, and is 35" long. From the collection of Herbert Hemphill. The price is $55.00. Inventory Code: ARPC.   Overall image ... Closeups of detail ... Other side of top.

Photo of dancersThis is a hand colored photograph of burlesque can-can and fan dancers. The picture is old, perhaps from the 1930's and is matted and mounted in a newer frame with a padded fabric matting. The image is about 15 1/5" by 8 1/2". The frame is a bit over 23" by 16". It's a wonderful piece. The price is $395.00. Inventory Code: TTHH.   Photo of burlesque dancers ... Closeup ... Side view.

Carving of men playing checkersCarving of fiddlerCarving of preacherHere are three detailed carvings with lots of personality. There is a preacher, a fiddler, and two men playing checkers. Each is painted, and signed "Jack Eichbaum". Eichbaum lived in Chattanooga, TN and carved for many decades until his death in 2010. He was a member of the Southern Highlands Craft guild.   All three carvings together ... Larger photo.

The first two men are seated on crates, playing checkers on top of a barrel. Their faces and clothes are very lifelike. The carving is 5 1/4" high by 3 3/8" by 6 7/8", in excellent condition. The price is $375.00. Inventory Code: CCTH.   Carving of men playing checkers ... The other side ... Another angle ... A fourth view ... One end ... The other end ... From above ...

The fiddle player has a long mustache, and is seated with one foot propped on his chair. The whole carving, including the chair and base is made from a single piece of wood. It is 5 5/8" high by 2 1/4" side by 4 7/8" deep, in excellent condition. The price is $375.00. Inventory Code: CCTO.   Carving of fiddler ... Side view ... Front view ... The other side ...

The African-American preacher is caught in mid-sermon, gesturing over his Bible. He stands 5 3/8" tall by 1 7/8" wide by 3 3/4" deep. The condition is excellent except for a small chip off of his finger. The price is $300.00. Inventory Code: CCTW.   Carving of preacher ... Another angle ... Side view ... Front view ...

This is a large multicolored tramp art clock case. It is 30 1/2" high, 17 1/4" wide, and 9 1/2" deep. The pine and plywood case is finished in both clear varnish and white paint. Made in the 1950's, this folky case is in very good condition with a nice strong look. The clock motor runs but the arms don't turn, so that can possibly be repaired. The price is $485.00. Inventory Code: ACOR.   One view ... Another view ... Another view ... Another view ... Top view ... One side ... The other side ... Back view ... Close-up.

This is an old hand made painted metal shrine assemblage. It incorporates a person with carved wood head in the center, surrounded by several objects including a dog?, flag, cross, bird?, tree, and flowers. The circular base that supports all this has what looks like either fish with cross tails or bombs. Most of the objects and base are cut from heavy sheet metal and painted. The base is mounted to a heavy iron rod, connected to it by several other iron pieces. The end is tapered to be put in the ground. This looks like a piece which combines Christian symbols with a nature religion, like Santeria. It may have an origin like the Osanyin bird cult; or possibly a Yoruba god. It is perhaps more Haitian or Caribbean than African. Because of outdoor use it is difficult to be specific about the age. With some galvanized wire it likely was made within the last 50 years. The base is 12" in diameter; the objects on it are up to 7" high; the fish, about 3 1/2" long. The total height is 54". It is in good sturdy condition, with rust, but much of the paint remaining. The price is $295.00. Inventory Code: ARHP.   Overall view ... View 2 ... View 3 ... View 4 ... View 5 ... Close-up 1 ... Close-up 2 ...Close-up 3.
