Hi. I am up in Ashland County, Wisconsin, on the Chequamegon Bay.
I don't, by any means, have a barn full of stuff but do have some interesting items that need new homes. The trouble is, I know very little about antiques and don't have a clue how to get rid of these items in this very rural area.
Some of the items I have are an antique table-top fan (about 10 inches), a Sanalac powdered milk can, a snowflake can (don't remember off-hand what product that was), a general electric clothes iron (missing cord), a couple of non-electric irons, a Hepplewhite highboy.
would need much more details on the high boy you would do better posting that in the antique furniture group
in example machine or hand dovtails, how large, what damage to it other than the one venneere chip on the top of the one drawer.
I am working on getting better pics of the highboy. The lighting in this room is terrible.
Thank you for the tips - I will post more info on the highboy both in the antique furniture group and the group about helping identify and value items. (after I find out what dovetails are) ;-)
the dovetail is how the front of the drawer is mounted to the sides of the drawers, there is machine cut as well as hand cut, this helps sometimes date the pc of furniture
do you have a picture of the whole thing not just parts of it?
Dunbarton oaks estate means nothing to me but I am in Michigan if you have the sale bill or some type of providonce if that family was special govener or such it would help but just hear say not much
you have a american, 1830-50's dresser, crotch mahogany matched fronts
with inlay and a boarder bead trim which some of which is missing as well as a few venneere chips this is the worse of the problems, doing veneere repair is an art.
this type of pc would sell best I would think in the south or east,
