“They don’t make them like that any more.” The remark commenting favorably on handcrafted made-in-America over the past two centuries certainly applies to more than 50 items in this weekend’s Americana auction. Below you’ll find a few standouts from the eclectic collection.
Highlights range from a hand-painted tin sign pointing the way to an office…
…to a hand-carved pine watch hutch large enough to hold a Big Ben alarm clock.
Textiles include an unusual kaleidoscope circular rug and a patchwork quilt depicting row after row of American flags.
Collectors of mechanical cast-iron toys will be entertained by the Punch and Judy bank in the auction.
From a music box playing Christmas carols, to a woodpecker whirligig, these collectibles describe everyday American experiences. They bring a sense of welcome to any home and weave together the threads of rural life.
