Antique wooden medical cabinet or first aid cabinet in old cracked cream colored paint with remnants of old green paint underneath.

It features a glass door with a glass knob and two drawers with porcelain knobs. The cabinet is heavy and very sturdy. There is a strip of wood on one side which is held on with two screws. I believe there may have been another part to this cabinet and that this strip of wood was used to support a shelf that ran between both parts. It can easily be removed.

This is such a wonderfully versatile piece. It would be lovely for displaying collections or used in a kitchen or bathroom as a functional piece.

Overall dimensions are 22" tall by 12" wide by 12" deep.

The inside of the cabinet measures 11 1/2" tall by 10 " wide by 10" deep (front to back).

The inside of the drawers measure 3" tall by 9" wide by 10" deep (front to back).

c. Early 1900s

Antique European goat cart - potato wagon or hay wagon, c. early 1900s.

Used on farms and in gardens throughout Europe during the early 20th century. These handmade carts were used primarily for hay and to transport feed and produce to and from villages. They were multi-functional and are known by different names. Some refer to them as goat carts while others call them potato wagons or hay wagons. These days they are used primarily for decorative purposes. They are lovely when filled with gourds and pumpkins in a fall display or with potted spring flowering plants spilling over the edge on a front porch or in a garden.

This cart is in great condition for the age. The hand-hewn wood is weathered and the metal components are rusty. There is one small chunk of wood missing and an early repair ( see the fourth photo). This is characteristic of something of this age that was heavily used and it only adds to the charm of the piece. All and all this primitive piece of farm equipment has been well care for over the years.

The cart is approximately 39" long by 24" wide by 22" tall.

The pull handle is 31" long.

The front wheels are 14" in diameter.

The back wheels are 16" in diameter.

PLEASE NOTE: For shipping purposes I may need to remove the the pull handle. It's held on with a single nut and bolt and will be very simple to reattach when it arrives. The assembly is fairly self-explanatory.

Vintage mannequin head. c. 1930s department store hat display.

She's lead a tough life, and it shows! Her original paint is cracked and chipping and her seam is showing. Despite her flaws, she is still quite lovely and would make a great addition to any cottage style decor.

She's made of a composite material and there appears to be plaster along the seams. I assume this was done during the manufacturing to blend the seams together before painting.

13 3/4" tall by 6 3/4" wide by 9" deep (front to back).

Please note that the paint in some areas is loose and there will most likely be a bit of paint loss during shipping.

Pair of vintage bow back chairs in chippy old white paint.

These are the perfect accent for any farmhouse or cottage style decor.

Each chair measures 33 1/2" tall with a seat height of 17 1/2". The seats are 15" wide by 15" deep (front to back).

The chairs are in good solid condition. It appears that one of the chairs has had a leg replaced in the back as well as a couple of base spindles in the front. This seems to have happened long ago, well before they were ever painted, and only adds to the charm of these wonderful cottage chic chairs.

There is some loose paint and there will most likely be a bit of paint loss during shipping. I did clean them and I gave them a coat of clear wax to help minimize further paint loss.
