A couple from California has this pair of brass candlesticks that they acquired many years ago.  They have a home in the Northern Neck, where the sticks are located, and are thinking of selling them.  The sticks are six inches tall, and the antique dealer from whom they purchased them said they were English, and dated from the nineteenth century.

These candlesticks indeed are English, and more precisely date from the period 1820 – 1860.  They are sand-cast,

This English walnut chest belongs to the sister of a reader.  She acquired it in Massachusetts over 40 years ago.  The wood is walnut and the owner thinks that the finish and hardware are original.
The ends are solid, and not paneled.  The finish has alligatored and the wood has faded from being in the

A lady in Urbanna acquired this brass mortar and pestle many years ago.  It weighs 25 pounds, and is unmarked as to maker or origin.  It is six inches high, and the pestle is eight inches long.  She wonders if it could be English.

The age of the mortar and pestle appears to be about 250 years, that is from the mid-seventeen hundreds.  The level of wear attests to its having been used heavily, perhaps commercially in an apothecary shop, or on a farm where herbs were crushed for home use.

An antique collector from Middlesex County recently acquired this pair of American Empire side chairs and the Chippendale walnut one-drawer stand.  The wood of each is walnut, and he thinks the finish is original.  The secondary wood of the table is pine. The chairs are upholstered in needlepoint, which is a twentieth-century addition.  They are sturdy, and can be used without weakening their structure.

First, as far as the chairs go, they indeed appear to be from the 1830s or 1840s.  The vase splat has good proportion, and the saber legs and

This parlor chair comes from one of the earliest families in the Northern Neck.  It has a mahogany frame, but as the owner had it recovered a few years ago, we cannot determine what the secondary wood is.  The casters are brass, and the chair is quite sturdy.

This chair is transitional between the Empire and Victorian Periods, and dates from 1850.  Fortunately, the recovering retained the original pattern of the tufting in the back. Undoubtedly, it was part of a parlor suite consisting of a sofa, gentleman's chair, lady's chair, at least two of these straight chairs, and
