A Northern Neck couple inherited this butter crock from her family many years ago.  It has the original lid, and most unusually, the original wire handle.  The condition is quite good, considering that it was used on a farm for several generations.  A couple of chips appear to have come from the time of the firing in the kiln, but otherwise the condition is excellent.  It bears no maker's identification.

A Northern Neck family recently brought this school desk down from a barn loft, where it had lain for more years than any of the family can remember.  The wood is walnut, and the finish is original, although the felt on the top appears to be an old replacement.  The interior is open, with a few cubbyholes.  The owners would like to clean the piece and to replace the felt.  They are questioning whether or not to leave the felt or not.

A gentleman in Richmond County purchased this chest from an antique dealer in Lottsburg, in Northumberland County, about 25 years ago for $175. The dealer told him that it had come in a container shipment from Denmark. Other than polishing it, the owner has done nothing to the piece.

This piece dates from the late nineteenth or early twentieth century. The design is typical of the work of German or Scandinavian cabinet shops from that period, the style is a form of Renaissance Revival.

The wood appears to be walnut with interesting marquetry using other wood veneers in the panels flanking the
