4046

19th century handcrafted - TIN FUNNEL CAKE MAKER

This neat early funnel cake maker measures approximately 6 1/2 inches in diameter at its mouth, is about 7 1/2 inches deep and has a 5 1/2 inch grip with a finger loop on the opposite edge. It is tinsmithmade from tinned sheet iron with lead soldered seams all commensurate with construction as early as the mid 1800s. While food historians remind us that recipes often predate their current popular names, they generally agree the idea of funnel cakes as we know them today first came into being in Northern Europe sometime before the term funnel cake became the common name for the sweetened fried dough confection . While modern dictionaries and food references generally place the term 'funnel cakes' in the 20th century, culinary evidence confirms the recipe is much older. In this country the sweetened fried dough confection became a popular item around the holidays and were a special favorite at street fairs and fundraisers. All in pleasing original condition, this funnel cake maker is suitable for use and will fit well as a country kitchen accessory or in a Civil War era cooking or sanitary fair grouping.

Hand fashioned from tinned sheet iron with led solder lap seams indicative of the earlier to mid 19th century, in is difficult to identify the intended purpose of this little tin pitcher ( Illustrated here with a Civil War vintage quarter for size comparison. ) but it is likely that it was either intended as a journeyman test piece ( a project assigned to demonstrate the level of the makers skill), or a traveling tinker’s sales sample.

Generally used as utility or ditty boxes once empty of their original content of one dozen bars of soap most examples were well used and cast aside in the period. GENUINE YANKEE SOAP by Chemists & Apothecaries , Williams & Brothers is the proclamation on the box cover making this an especially nice inclusion in any Civil War era personal item, medical, or country store grouping. Marked Entered according to Congress 1857, the pasteboard box measures 4 5/8 X 6 ¾ inches and remains in excellent condition. Will display well on its own or would make an especially attractive backdrop as a ditty box containing other personal items.

4096

earlier to mid 1800s South Carolina Barrier Islands – BEADED BAG

A bit of a conundrum when we acquired this wonderful remnant of early Black Americana because we knew but little of the category yet, thankfully, we learned relatively early on to trust our judgment when presented with a special opportunity. The pattern design of this beaded bag and the fact that the piece came out in the coastal Old South indicated a Sea Islands or Barrier Island plantation origin. Set aside in our personal accumulation, we have enjoyed the piece and now it is time make it available as we clear away some of the fruits of our years of search. (Some of you may enjoy MaineLegacy.com a display from our personal Civil War collection.) Our illustrations will do best to describe this wonderful vintage glass beaded bag, adding only that it measures approximately 6 1/2 X 7 1/4 inches including the fringe with pattern on both sides, cotton draw string and a silk lining. The bag is entirely original with good evidence of age and period use. The glass beaded body and fringe remain solid and the original beige silk lining remains intact but with some splitting and tenderness. Buy with confidence! All direct sales are backed by no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased ! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item is being returned per these previsions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly.

c. 1864 Harriet Beecher Stowe PHOTOGRAPH

A rarely seen circa 1864 photograph of American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. This unusual view of the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin appears to have been trimmed in the period from a group photograph and mounted on a sheet of bond writing paper. We have an identical example in our personal collection which represents the only other such view we have seen. They were acquired as a pair and though separately mounted seemed to be an attempt at an oversized stereopticon application. The photograph measures approximately 3 7/8 X 4 ¾ inches on a 4 5/8 X 6 ½ inch mount. The photographer is not identified. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!
