18th century Fireplace Shovel

This is an original 18th century fireplace tool, probably circa 1780, that has been largely untouched. The 7" long brass section with urn finial has a wonderful deep patina showing crisp turnings with just a shadow of rope turning on one section. The iron is hand forged and the sheet iron shovel is riveted to the shaft. As the photo shows, one corner is curled; this could be straightened. Total length is 31", the shovel is 7 1/2" long and about 6" at its widest point. Overall, a wonderful piece of history and a very pleasing piece that is still fully functional. You will be pleased, I am sure.

Original "Bamboo Turned" Windsor Chair

This is an Antique, Original "Bamboo Turned" Windsor Side Chair. The Bamboo Turned Windsors were typical from 1790-1850. This particular example shows beautiful age, wear and patina in all the right places. Originally, Windsor chairs were painted due to the fact that different species of wood were used in their construction. As you can see, this Windsor has since been stripped and refinished. However, the bottom of the seat still displays a multitude of colors from its journey through the ages. This is a great piece of history that exhibits the "real look" that everyone loves and it's hard to beat.

Yelin signed pistol with Lyman mold

*SOLD* - This pistol has a 9 inch 38 caliber barrel, a Lyman .369" mold and approximately 50 cast lead balls. The ONLY markings on the pistol/lock is the word "Yelin" carved around the base of the butt stock. The stock appears to be American walnut. The craftsmanship of the entire pistol is extremely well done. I would assume the pistol is meant to be used for target shooting since it has very fine sights and a very light trigger pull (it is not a sett trigger) and is adjustable for weight of pull. It has a hooked breech, the rifling is unique for a ML, it has 14 grooves. Email ( questions or for more photos. Pistol, mold, $550 firm. I might consider a trade for something interesting.
