"The common denomiator among antiquers is a desire to keep objects from perishing-to insist on the indestructability of human values by making the arts of everyday living deathless."

The Country Lady Antiques

We specialize in early and period antiques of wonderful quality from New England, as well as 17thc. antiques from England, etc. We have lovely, trusted contacts all over and actively and continuously seek out authentic and early items that we can get excited about and that we know will please and delight our customers.

~We generally do not buy from dealers but rely on our own knowledge and sources for our antiques, both for ourselves and our 'Country Lady Antiques' business.

We have priced our finds very reasonably.

We feel we are not just selling antiques; We are selling a little story of the past and preserving a little piece of history.

Made in a garage in Oklahoma or Texas?

~Indeed not, good sir and madam~

...Adam made the first ones years ago for me, hand crafting them using the old lathe at the 18thc. mill that stands just several hundred feet from our home...

Our 17thc. STYLE TREEN CANDLESTICKS

"ADAM'S TREEN"~

We offered a limited number of our own beautiful, hand turned wooden replicas of a 17thc. Dutch hollowcast candlestick sold here by prepaid order Adam hand-makes each one.

The wood comes from an old fashioned, one-man saw mill in the country, not 10 minutes from our home. Each one is hand finished by Mary in a multi-step process.

Adam, who had never done anything of this nature before used the old hand lathe at the c. 1784 mill just down from our home, with the kind permission of our neighbor who owns it.

We were delighted to offer our customers our own uniquely individual and painstakingly hand made and 'aged' copies of a rare original form. Because these are made one at a time by hand, each has it's slight variations and wood grain, and flaws. They are signed and dated.

*NOTE~

WE ARE NOT OFFERINGS THESE AT PRESENT, BUT HOPE TO MAKE MORE IN FUTURE. IF WE DO, WE WILL AGAIN HAVE THEM LISTED FOR ORDER ON OUR SITE.

EX-ROGER BACON~

17THC. WAINSCOT ARMCHAIR WITH

IMPRESSIVE PROVENANCE

(THE 17thc. STYLE 'FULLER MASTER SALT' IS

SOLD)

EX ROGER BACON~

Outstanding period wainscot chair with excellent form and carving.  Made in the 17th century.  Formerly owned by Horton Foote.  Horton Foote was perhaps best known for his Academy Award winning screenplays for the film To Kill a Mockingbird and Tender Mercies.  He also received the Pulitzer Prize in 1995 for his play The Young Man from Atlanta.

The chair was purchased at the sale of Foote's paintings and furniture by Northeast Auctions, NH in 2005. The catalog listing for the chair describes it as follows: 

"Oak with brown-black finish.  The flat crest with ten scoop carved arches above a panel with central diamond with punches, circles within, and over a rail with scooped arches.  The curved armrests with scribed tree carving.  Plank seat with carved rails." 

Typical of a chair of this age, there have been a few minor repairs over the years that don't detract from the look of the chair.  Size:  45.5 inches high, 23.5 inches wide and 23 inches deep.

SOLD
