A local family purchased  this Hepplewhite butler's desk at a retirement home where an elderly couple was moving to assisted living.  The previous owners were unable to provide any history of the piece, except to say it had been in their family for many generations.

This antique scale belongs to an old Northern Neck family that once ran the store in which it was used. It has been in the family for over one hundred years, and is in excellent condition. The pan is tin, and the scale itself is steel, the family thinks, plated with nickel.  The marble retains its original polished shine.  It still measures things correctly, and the family uses it during summer months to weigh garden produce.  Unfortunately, it bears no maker’s identification.

This etched glass lidded compote belongs to a lady I met many years ago.  She acquired it at an estate sale here in the Northern Neck, and prizes it as one of her best pieces of glass.  It is in excellent condition, and the base shows the correct amount of wear for its age.  She is thinking of giving it as a wedding present, and wishes to know if its value is sufficiently significant, as she thinks the newlyweds might not realize its value.

This captain’s chair comes from an early Northern Neck home where it is one of a set of six.   Unfortunately, three are in very bad condition, with spindles and rungs broken and unglued, and separation of the seat planks.  The wood appears to be oak, and none of the chairs has a label or identifying mark.  The owner is concerned whether the cost of restoration is worth the effort.

A gentleman from Northumberland County recently purchased this chair, or should I say chair frame?, at a house sale for $25.  Both the primary and secondary woods are walnut, and the frame is sturdy, although the finish on the arms in spots has been worn away.  The fabric that has survived is not original, as evidenced by the previous nail holes in the frame.
