This rare PETTINGILL SHAKER KETCHUP JUG is one of very few known examples. SHAKER KETCHUP was made at the Sabbathday Lake, Maine Shaker community. In the manuscripts of Elder Henry Green of Sabbathday Lake, it is noted that many large barrels of ketchup were being shipped to Portland. A logical assumption is that the maker of the stoneware jug was E. Swasey of Portland, as their pottery was just a few doors down from Pettingill (on Commercial St.) who was the distributor of Shaker Ketchup. This Shaker Ketchup jug was discussed in two different articles which appeared in the Maine Antiques Digest. The articles were penned by the noted antiques researcher, scholar and author Marius Peladeau of Readfield, Maine.

Camphor wood Portland, Maine (Moody family) Sea Chest with a spectacular painted "under-lid". Measures 17 ' tall x  38' wide x 17  3/4' deep.

A wonderful mid 19th century miniature watercolor of a Squirrel by the listed Attleboro, Massachusetts wildlife miniaturist Lydia S. Bliss. Signed verso. Original octagonal frame.  Measures  8" (overall)  and 4  1/2" (sight).

A HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT collection of items relating to the STEAMER PORTLAND which was lost in the "Portland Gale" of 1898. The collection contains the ONLY KNOWN ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH of the ship's CAPTAIN HOLLIS H. BLANCHARD along with the original newspaper accounts of the tragedy and a wonderful cased model of the S.S. PORTLAND by the noted American model maker GEORGE SINE, and many other fascinating artifacts. Recently found in a southern coastal Maine home.

JOHN HENRY DOLPH N.A. (American 1838-1903). Discovered recently in a mobile home near Bar Harbor, Maine this MONUMENTAL oil on canvas measures 41  1/2"  x  60  1/8 " (overall32  1/2"  x  52  1/2" (sight) and is housed in its original frame. Signed lower left, the painting is in urgent need of cleaning. A truly superb work by this well regarded National Academy (1877) artist.


MOSES B. RUSSELL (American 1809-1884). A small watercolor and pencil drawn sketch book by this noted American miniature portrait artist. Dated 1881, the book contains pencil drawings of many identified sitters who were relatives and friends from his childhood "stomping grounds" near WOODSTOCK, NH along with signed floral watercolors and local White Mountain scenery.


Not just another door! This remarkable EARLY 18TH CENTURY or perhaps LATE 17TH CENTURY exterior "DOUBLE SLABBED" door is in untouched, original and complete condition. Its vertically "slabbed" exterior layer and horizontally "slabbed"  interior side are joined with "gnarly" ROSE HEAD NAILS as are its wonderful original strap hinges with their original pintles.  72 ' tall x 33 1/4' wide x 2' thick. Found in the shed chamber of an 18th century farmhouse in GRANTHAM, NH.

Two outstanding early New England Hooked Rugs. The rare dated 1867 example measures 28 1/4' x 57 3/4'. The wonderfully composed Floral and Bird rug measures 52 ' x 31 '. This rug was once exhibited at the Henry Francis du Pont Museum at Wintherthur, Delaware. It retains its original exhibition tag (see photos).

A fine signed and dated 1845 LEHIGH COUNTY, Pennsylvania woven COVERLET by the noted weaver JOHN SEIBERT (Sr.) of LOW HILL TOWNSHIP, PENNSYLVANIA. A vibrantly colored and superbly composed example. Measures 41  1/2" long  and 23  1/2" tall.
