Pair of wonderful vintage early 20th century wood and zinc plant stand planters - $175.00

<-- Click image to left for more pics

Each planter is 48" X 15" X 14 1/2"
The turned feet are 3 1/2" diameter; & 5" tall
The sides are 8 1/2" tall made from 2 milled molding pieces

This is a very nice unique pair of planters. Square on one end and cut at about 22 1/2 degree on the other. They were made from door / window trim molding - possibly contemporary with when a house was built. My guess is that these moldings were common from the late 1800s to about 1930. I don't know what wood they are - poplar would be my first guess. The planters are zinc lined, though the zinc is cracking and I wouldn't recommend filling directly with soil, but to use individual pots with drip trays. At one time the zinc liners divided each planter into 3 sections. Recommended for use in covered areas only. Would look great on your wrap-around porch. We used them for many years, but they were low enough for our pets to climb in and nibble the plants. In need of a new finish.

As you can see from the pictures, their shape makes them adaptable to various interesting placements.

Listing as pick-up only. I will deliver within 50 miles of Amherst MA.
Weigh approx. 32 lbs. each

Vintage Victor VV-80 1921 Victrola - $150.00

<-- Click image to left for more pics
S&H included for US sales (all others contact us  first)
Selling As found. Dark mahogany finish which has typically crackled and darkened with age. The cabinet is darker than the photos, because these were taken indoors with the flash (most of the time).

Serial # 13270 - First year of this model.
To be fully restored, it would need a soundbox, crank and a governor assembly for the motor. The main spring currently works. Not having the hand crank, I wound it with a threaded rod and you can see the video that shows the turntable spinning. Click to watch video
The cabinet itself needs the veneer reglued. The Victor decal inside the cover is still bright and colorful. The bottom left door is bowed. Molding on the top right is missing a piece. See the pictures.
Pickup only

Unique Early 1800 Antique Thumb Back Arm Rocker with Arrow Slat Spindles Rush seat (missing) $350.00

<-- Click image to left for more pics
Pickup Only
Very nice Early American rocking chair for a person on the smaller side.
I do not know of a match to this particular hybrid of a chair. Made by someone who may have been experimenting between slat back chair and spindle back. Possibly by a country furniture maker. There is no attempt to hide the caliper lines on the turned legs. It has pegged mortise and tenon joinery.

The back has 3 horizontal rails with 4 vertical arrow back slats between the 2 lower rails.
The arms end in very nicely shaped handholds.
It has several woods. One is either oak or chestnut. The other possibly maple.
One of the rockers as seen from underneath was drilled all the way through for the chair leg. Was this an experiment, a mistake or done by an amateur? In any case these rockers are very old if not original.
The finish is just as we bought it. There are signs of white paint in the grain.
The macrame seat was a partially failed experiment we made in the 1970s when we bought the chair. We bought the chair in either Connecticut or western Massachusetts.

Dimensions are approximate:
Height from floor to top of thumb backs 38 3/4"
Length of rockers 23 1/2"
2 top horizontal rails (slats) and a bottom rail taper from 13 1/4" long to 12 3/4" long. The top rail is 3 1/4" high.
The arrow back spindles are 11 3/4" tall
The space between arms is 15 to 15 1/2" wide.
The seat is 14 1/2" from the floor and approx. 15 1/2" X 14"

If you are interested, I will be happy to research shipping to your locale. contact us
