Homeowners about to embark on home improvement projects should prioritize dust removal to avoid the potentially negative side effects of exposure to lead dust. When undergoing a renovation, homes built before 1978, the year the use of lead paint was banned, are likely to produce lead dust, which occurs when lead paint is sanded or chipped. That dust can be especially harmful to children, pregnant women and pets.

This lady’s work table has belonged to a family from Richmond for several generations. The wood is mahogany with pine secondary wood. The milk glass knobs possibly are Sandwich glass, and the legs are well carved. The leaves raise to form a larger surface, thus in effect it is also a Pembroke table.

This blue-and-white pitcher has belonged to the same family for over 50 years. It is 12 inches high, and bears no maker’s identifying mark, but someone has handwritten the word ”Omega” on the bottom in silver lettering. The bottom also has more blue floral decoration on it. The pitcher is in excellent condition. They have asked if the piece is Flo-Blue.

This sideboard belongs to a collector in Northumberland County. She purchased it many years ago, and thinks the finish is original. The wood is oak, and the overall condition is excellent, but the knobs might be replacements. She is interested in selling the piece, and concerned about setting a fair price.
