Antiques Considered - Jan. 28, 2015

Last Saturday I participated in the Saint Clement’s Island Museum’s annual Appraiser Fair for the fifteenth time.  This year’s event brought out some of the best pieces I have seen to date, with folks coming from all across Southern Maryland, the District of Columbia, and the Northern Neck.  The Museum is one of the finest regional museums in the Chesapeake area, and a visit in summer by water taxi to the Saint Clement’s Island, where the first Maryland settlers landed in 1634 is a pure delight.

This dry sink belonged to an old family in Louisiana, whose descendants moved to Maryland over 60 years ago.  The wood is poplar, and the hardware is original, except for the door latches, which were replaced many years ago.  The hinges on the doors are original. The ends are solid. The owners think one of their ancestors had the piece refinished in the 1950s at which time a copper liner was installed in the well in order  to use the piece as a bar.

This Victorian sideboard was part of an inheritance from a family on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  The wood is walnut, and the doors are burled.  The marble top is in excellent condition, and the secondary wood is poplar.

This children’s church bench comes from a family in the lower Northern Neck.  They are unsure of what wood it is, and are looking for the missing side arm.  They described the piece as a deacons’ bench, but it is too low for the average man.  Other than the missing arm, and wear from being on an outside porch, the condition is good.  It is six feet, nine inches long.

This pair of milk glass candlesticks came from the altar of the original Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Kilmarnock.  They are in excellent condition, and bear no imprint of the maker.  They are eight inches high.  The church was built in 1885, and served as the parish church until 1956, when the present brick church was constructed on the adjoining lot.
