Flat bottom Gathering basket.

Excellent, early apple basket

This is a really fine old apple basket. It has bentwood handles and is in near perfect condition.
If you have ever been interested in one of these, you have to come and take a look. There is nothing out of place, replaced, or broken. Use in every season for you "bulk" collections. A truly #1 quality country antique. $95
Here is a very early slant top desk with wide thick boards and all square nailed construction. We had this is our home and it was a bit out of place where we had it. You will love this excellent quality, New England primitive desk. $360

2 Door Hanging Cupboard

This is a small 2 door hanging cupboard. Small enough to fit anywhere. Note the great pictures glued inside. This is a high quality unique piece for a discriminating collector.

Large Old Red Sugar Bucket

This spice cabinet is different than most of them in that it has 7 drawers, not 6 and not 8 as most spice cabinets have. It has a very good surface patina and is a unique cabinet for the price. A great primitive for anyone's collection. $115 Sold

Here is one of our "Feed Sack" chairs. Perfect to add a primitive look to any room. They are "sittable" and nice to ponder how they were used. These have been very popular for us and fit in any room. $150

Hardware Organizer. Very primitive.

This old Hardware Drawer cubby was probably a workman's organizer. Each drawer is adorned with something like a nail or staple which is probably what was contained in the drawer. We think this was a very creative way to organize one's fasteners. Come and take a closer look!!! $139

Mustard Bench

Look at this very primitive old bench. It has mustard paint and is very quite well worn. It is square nailed and a great example of early American primitive design. It has a great surface, with chipped paint and is very solid. $240

Here is an old pumpkin colored dry sink we found in eastern Iowa. It is probably from New England, but can't guarantee it. It is a shallow one, ( about 14" deep) by any standard and would work well when you don't have a wide area to put it in. It would work great in an entryway to show off bowls and florals for the holidays. Come and take a look. $595

Primitive Step back Cupboard

This is a great old Primitive Step back Cupboard. The doors are screen covered and this piece is ancient. While it is really primitive, it is an item which will work with more modern furniture. It can set the mood for the whole room. $490
