Antiques Considered - September 4, 2013

This week we have a traditional Northern Neck piece that a gentleman recently acquired at an auction.  It is a yellow pine chimney cupboard with early, if not original, tile red paint.  When he purchased it, the catch was missing, and he ordered a replacement in the correct style; otherwise he has done nothing to the cupboard.  The hinges are original, and in good working order.

The owners of this creamer and lidded saucer have asked about its origin and the signature on the bottom of each piece.  They live in the Northern Neck and have owned the items for several generations.  The pieces are marked “KPM” and signed with the name of an English decorator, who put “1922” below her name.

A writer from Classic Shore in Colonial Beach has sent several photographs of this pottery jug that her mother purchased about 20 years ago at an antique shop. The photographs are not very clear, but they show a nice unmarked piece with an unusual spout on the side.  The overall condition appears to be quite good, and the color of the glaze is unusual.

These four English copper lustre pitchers are part of a large collection belonging to a lady in the lower Northern Neck.  She has some that are as early as the 1840s and others as late as the 1960s.  Several are broken, and others are in restored condition.  These are a representative sample.

This week we have another painted piece of furniture.   It is a jelly cupboard, with old, if not original, buttermilk green paint that is worn quite heavily.  The owner asks whether to have the piece refinished, or to leave it as is.  From the places where the paint is worn off, he thinks the wood is cherry, and notes the sturdy construction throughout.
