This is a primitive table top metal pie safe. I believe it is composed of a galvanized tin and then painted. Much of that paint has worn off. Metal is not as good as wood for holding paint and so over the years this would be expected. I think this is over 100 years old. There are a few dents in it and on the inside there is a wooden shelf that was too large to begin with, that has cracked. This may have happened when it was put or 'forced' in. I don't know if this was original to the piece or not..my instincts tell me that it wasn't. There is also a small mirror that is on the inside of the door. This may also have been added, again, I am not sure. If it was, it was because it was converted to be used in a bathroom as a medicine cabinet. This pie safe measures 20 tall, 13 1/2 long and 11 1/4 wide. Be sure and check the pictures as they will give you a better idea as to condition and quality and are part of this description. I have other pics of all of the sides that I was not able to fit in here so if you are serious about buying this and need to see those, just contact me. Ask for pics 1758-60+62 from my 12/11/23 pic folder. Happy Collecting!!!!!
Antique Norwegian lefsa stick, in very good condition. This large wooden stick measures 28 long and shows lots of character and patina. Lefsa is a Norwegian flatbread, a bit like a large tortilla, made mostly of potatoes with a bit of flour and fat, and is best eaten with butter in my opinion, although many people prefer it with sugar, and my children like it with strawberry jam. Enjoy!

Large antique Orson Starr cowbell. c:1800's. Probably was made for a bull. Original black paint; handle is a bit irregular; raised name: 'O Starr #6'. It is 7.5 tall x 5.5 wide. Iron. No clapper so I improvised with an old leather string and antique fishing weight. You can find an on-line site that does replacement clappers, leave as is, or find a welder to make one. O Starr was located in Royal Oak, MI in the 1800's and he made these cowbells. Awesome accessory for a western or country themed abode! The red one in one of the pics has sold; this is the only O Starr left and they are extremely hard to find. 10/10mm#

Antique stoneware chick feeder. Hard to find unique item! Some books refer to them 'sanitary poultry fountains', or 'sanitary milk feeders'. It is missing the bottom stoneware pan, but I substituted an antique grey graniteware pan which looks good and works just fine. This chick feeder stands 9.25 tall x 7.5 wide across bottom rim. It has one noticeable glaze pop, and a tiny fleabite off middle rim; nothing major for an oldie like this! This feeder could be a McCoy, Zanesville, Monmouth, RRP, or any of the great old American pottery companies; they all made these.
Primitive wood egg crate. Has a hardwood handle and the top comes off to reveal the original cardboard egg cartons, (double egg cartons on two rows that will hold 48 eggs total I believe). And, there is a stamp mark on the wood when you remove the cartons, but by the time it took me to figure out how to get the top back on, I had forgotten what the name was! I think it said Oscoda, Michigan, (maybe Owosso, both towns are in northern MI). It is in good vintage condition and is 12.5 x 12.5 and is 7.5 tall. A great display item for your abode, or outside in the garden near a potting shed/cupboard!
