Antique italian dishes. Not sure exactly when they were purchased, but probably early 1900s in Italy. Some items are chipped and/or repaired with glue. Not sure what kind of paint was used on them (have not had them tested for lead-based paint).

At least 65 years old. Originally rescued from my grandfather's scrap metal business in the early 1950s. Measures 6" H 5" D 12" L I was going to include it with some other old stuff to take to the scrap metal dealer, but I thought someone out there might take a fancy to it. I think the notion of a strongbox for protecting valuables is kinda funny since a thief could just walk away with the whol...
I have an antique Victrola Record Player furniture piece that we are giving away. It does not work and needs to be restored and the furniture needs to be refinished. But would love for it to go to a loving home. Will need to pick up. It is heavy.
Lots of antique and vintage toys, primitives, art, tools, advertising, home stuff, large live edge slabs of walnut and so much more. Much more available than the pictures show.

This beautiful antique chest of drawers makes quite the statement, dressed in a lovely shade of Scandinavian Pink. It's the perfect pop of color for a welcoming entryway, an eclectic kitchen, a feminine boudoir, or, perhaps, a baby girl's nursery. Four drawers provide amble storage, and boast original brass pulls and hand cut dovetail joinery. Each drawer bottom has been lined with vintage flor...
