SeederThis is a very decorative, antique, funky, wooden garden seeder. Probably made in the late 1800's or early 1900's as a hand made, factory made piece, from wood and iron which has aged with a good natural and painted surface. This implement has wonderful form and has been hung on a wall as a decorative piece; however, the mechanism seems to work even today. With the two handles, it is about 6 feet long by 32" high by 12" wide. It has a wooden wheel, a metal feeder wheel inside, and and iron hook at the front - probably to attach to a horse harness to be pulled. The main bin was painted red, which has worn and aged nicely. There are two metal gears and an unusual metal chain which turns with the wooden wheel and moves the feeder wheel. This piece is in generally good, sturdy condition, with a wonderful look. The price is $275.00. Inventory Code: ARPS.   Antique garden seeder ... The other side ... Closeup of the mechanism ... From behind ... Closeup of wheel ... Mechanism inside ...

Thistle shelfThis is a wall shelf cut out in the shape of a stylized thistle. It is built of 3/4" pine, with dark cream paint.

The break occurred before the shelf was painted, possibly while it was being made. The shelf measures 20 1/2" high by 11" wide by 8 1/2" deep. Age appears to be from the 1930's or 40's. The price is $145.00. Inventory Code: TWOT.   Thistle shelf ... Another view ... Side view ... The other side ... From above ... From below ... Back view ... With a soda can for scale.

It was probably made around the 1930's or '40's, and is in very good condition. It is about 16" high by 15 1/2" wide by 5 1/4" deep. The price is $225.00.

Bog shoeNext are two bog shoes - used on horses for extra support while being used for logging in swampy and snowy conditions. These were found in Iowa, but likely came from either Minnesota or Wisconsin. They are cut from hardwood. One has the more often found metal attachments while the other has a rare leather "harness" to hold on the horse. They were made and used circa 1900, and are in very good, used condition with appropriate wear. The leather on the second one is fairly hard.

This first bog shoe is oval in shape and 8 1/2" by 11" in size. The chiseled areas for the horseshoe to fit into resemble eyes and a mouth, so the shoe looks like a face. The surface is unfinished.
