Extraordinarily rare early 18th Century, dating from 1705 babys cot coverlet also used for family christenings for many generations. The condition of the fabric is strong, no holes – completely hand made with distinctive 18thC embroidery and pink silk piping along the edges. There are some stains which would be expected with age and an item that has been used and are. There is a provenance label sewn into a corner from 1882 that dates the coverlet used by eight generations from 1705. Would be a wonderful gift for a new baby or collectors item.

This rare and handsome piece remains in varying condition (please see condition report for specifics and exceptions), bears no monogram or erasure, and lays in wait for the collector! I have had so many inquiries about the hallmark. I took this to Skinner Auctions and they immediately identified it as James Geddy. They do not do authentications unless you pay. I have finally located their source. Many have not because it is under the name James Geddes-same person son of gunsmith James Geddes of Williamsburg Va. Please scroll through the photos until you come across the Ensko Guide to American Silversmiths- a must have reference for early coin. Decide for yourself please. Length: 6 1/4in (16cm). Weight: 0.87 troy oz (27g). The item “RARE 18TH C. EARLY COLONIAL COIN SILVER RATTAIL DESSERT SPOON” is in sale since Thursday, April 16, 2020. This item is in the category “Antiques\Silver\Coin Silver (.900)”. The seller is “shrinkflyer” and is located in Sagamore Beach, Massachusetts. This item can be shipped worldwide.

Here is a true rarity in antique lighting… A miniature 18th or early 19th century 2-candle “chandelier”… And I’m calling it a chandelier only because its designed to be hung. Overall width is 9 3/4″, height, excluding the two sections of wire for hanging, 7 3/4″ (the two wire sections add 11 1/2). The sole apology is the small age crack shown in my 7th picture and the tack someone inserted many moons ago for no apparent reason. The item “Rare miniature 18th / early 19th C 2-candle hanging chandelier, American” is in sale since Friday, April 17, 2020. This item is in the category “Antiques\Primitives”. The seller is “pco2000″ and is located in La Canada Flintridge, California.

Rare Antique Early 18th Century Continental Silver Vinaigrette / Pomander C. This is a fabulous and rare survivor from the early 18th century, circa 1700 – 1720. This attractive little box is an early form of vinaigrette or pomander and would of contained forms of perfume such as fragrant herbs, ambergris or scented resins. The box is round in form and made in two parts, with the lid simply pushing into place. The lid has been decorated in the repousse manner and has chased detailing to the upper side – as can be seen in the images, this takes the form of foliage, a bird and what appears to be a pomegranate. Around the outside edge of the lid is a decorative frill border, which seems to be a common feature on these types of early boxes. Importantly, the silver has been pierced through so that the enclosed scent can be accessed without removing the lid. Sanitation and general hygiene in the 16th century through to the 19th century was a world away from what it is now, and the putrid stench of streets awash with waste and general detritus meant that devices such as this were essential for ladies and gents of standing. A waft under the nose might prevent a lady’falling into a swoon’. The inside of the box shows traces of its original gilding, put there primarily as a protection for the silver from any potential corrosive qualities of the perfume – this gilding is more apparent to the inside of the lid. As is commonly seen with these early vinaigrette’s, there are no marks whatsoever to the silver. I actually took some specialist advice from a well known expert in early silver and it was his opinion that the piece was either Dutch or German, with him actually favouring it being German on account of the style of repousee work (if you’d like to know who I consulted, please contact me). The advised date of the item is circa 1700 – 1720, though some similar examples have an earlier attribution of circa 1680. It’s an incredible survivor from the era of the last of the Stuart monarchs, Queen Anne or the Hanoverian, George I. The box measures 5cm x 5cm x 1cm – the total unpacked weight is 13.6g. The condition all round is excellent for its age. There are some minor contact pin head sized bumps to the underside, plus an extremely minor edge knock to the rim of the base (see picture 9). There are no splits or repairs to the silver. The lid fits on snugly and retains a good shape. All round a very nice and rare example for a collector. Please study the images provided to satisfy yourself as to the condition of the item offered here – if you have any further questions please ask. The item “Rare Antique Early 18th Century Continental Silver Vinaigrette / Pomander C. 1700″ is in sale since Thursday, July 11, 2019. This item is in the category “Antiques\Silver\Solid Silver\Vinaigrettes”. The seller is “century-antiques-uk” and is located in Wigston. This item can be shipped worldwide.

Thank You For Visting Fox Run Farms Antiques! Also be sure to check out our other listings this week for more examples of period metalware and antique country furnishings! This 18th century blacksmith made wrought iron candlestick is of European original origin; French or English, and brought over to America by immigrants. This was another great example of early lighting we have acquired from a collector who specialized in lighting and had assembled his collection decades ago. As you can see the piece has an adustable mechanism to the formation of the candle shaft, allowing the user to raise up the candle via the curled tabbed slider. Has a wonderful tri-legged design underneath a circular “up turned” drip pan. Retains the original top hook that would allow the piece to be transported or hung off the back of a chair when not placed atop a table. Some pitting expected for age. Candleshaft has a very slight tilt to it. All signs of age point to usage and expected wear from age. Stands approx 7 3/4 tall. Note the square nut and slightly out of round rivet to the bottom construction. Again a rare example thats been in a private collection for decades and fresh to market for the appreciator of fine lighting and early iron. Thanks for visiting us here at FoxRun-Farms!
