American Folk Art Carved Whimsy Stake Rolling Ball 1800s
This is a hand carved wooden folk art whimsy stake from Pennsylvania or New England circa 1800s for your consideration.

Plantation Open Hearth Wrought Iron Skillet Fry Pan 1700s
This is a colonial open hearth wrought iron and heavy sheet metal frying pan is from Virginia circa 1700s. Pot, pans, and skillets began to be manufactured in the colonies in 1725. The earliest frying pans were of iron and heavy sheet metal with extended long handles, with a large hole at the tip of the handle so it could be hung when not in use. The short handled frying pan came into being much later when stoves became more common. This early massive frying pan would have been used either on a plantation or in a tavern or public house. Unlike skillets with their own tripod legs, this massive frying pan would have sat on a large grill or trivet above glowing coals in the open hearth. The wrought iron frying pan is massive in size and has a long handle with a large hole for hanging on one end. The other end of the handle forms into a large bracket that attaches to the frying pan by five large rivets. The handle was stamped 119 (see photos) by the blacksmith to identify the frying pan. The sides of the plantation frying pan are 3 inches in depth for holding large amounts of cooking fat or oils and food. The center of the frying pan has a tiny old early repair (see photos). The plantation frying pan lays flat upon surface and the inside of the pan shows centuries of cooking in an open hearth. Massive wrought iron frying pans such as this can be seen proudly hung in the colonial kitchens of Mount Vernon, Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg, and the Shelburne Museum in New England. The colonial massive frying pan is strong and heavy in weight and could still be used today. North Bayshore Antiques
New England Shaker Paint Decorated Rug Whip Beater 1890s
This is an antique New England Shaker hand turned paint decorated rug whip from Mount Lebanon Community, New York circa 1890s for your consideration. The "Shaker Rug Whip" was not a Shaker invention, their role was refining it. A non-Shaker named Charles Comstock patented one style a softwood handle with steam bent cane (rattan) in 1898, and assigned the manufacturing rights to the North Family at Mount Lebanon. There, under the direction of Brother Levi Shaw (1819 - 1908), the community made whips between 1898 and the first years of the twentieth century. The Shaker Rug Whip has a hand turned handle made of solid piece of cherry wood. The whip is steam bent cane that is inserted into the handle and attached with square nails. One side of the handle has minor imperfection where the square nail has gone missing. A replacement nail was added to strongly secure the whip to the handle as an early repair. This does not diminish the character and adds to the authenticity of this used household item. The Antique New England Shaker Rug Whip is strong and sturdy. One side of the handle is painted with the Shaker Canterbury Red paint that would be displayed when hanging on the wall. North Bayshore Antiques
