SA105 HRT10 Red Mill Creation Box Turtle

3)  Box Turtle, 7" long by 3" high, by Red Mill Company of West Virginia.  These figures are individual artist's designs that are made into a mould which are filled with a mix of crushed pecan shells and resin and formed into the figure.  Each is then hand finished and polished.  We first started selling these in the 1980's and they were extremely popular.  These are new old stock.  Excellent condition,  SOLD

4) A set of Hall, Autumn Leaf pattern china distributed by Jewel Tea Company door to door between 1933 and the early 70's. This is service for four.  Group of four settings of six different pieces to total 28 Piece Set. All in fine to very good condition with most of gold remaining on rims, some pieces are worn. There are 4 each of 10" plates, 9" plates, 8" plates, 6" plates, fruit bowls, cups & saucers. These are highly collectable today and getting scarce and pricey. This set is not as pricey as I've seen, only $250.   SOLD But we do get others.

5) Pictured are a flintlock and two percussion rifles from the nineteenth century and an ever present powder horn. We always have a selection of fine antique firearms and accessories in stock.  Or just a wall hanger for your den or kitchen. We never know what may come in and we get calls for appraisals and to purchase collections so if you have something in particular in mind you might want to be on our "call me" list.
