Antiques Considered - September 21, 2011

This Sheraton armchair comes from an Ohio family who settled in Washington before moving to the Northern Neck. It is mahogany, and has a slip seat, that is the seat can be “slipped” from the chair. In other words, the seat is not upholstered to the frame. It bears an old label from a Dublin moving company, but has been in this country for more than a

The owner writes that the penknife came from a friend to her grandmother, but she does not know the age or origin of the comb and cigarette case.

A writer from Maryland has written describing her Scottish stoneware jug, which she recently received as a gift from her uncle.  The uncle's father, then a U.S. Coast Guard officer recovered the jug when it washed ashore in the 1930s on Parramore Island off the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  At the time he was stationed on the island.

When he found it, the jug was encased in a wicker basket, which later deteriorated after being left in a storage area with a dirt floor.  The piece bears the imprint of Possil Pottery and the number "4", which almost certainly designates the number of gallons it holds.  It is 19 inches tall.

In the nineteenth century the Possil Pottery produced these jugs for the vibrant Scottish whiskey market.  Obviously, it could be used only once,
