The light-colored wood of this old clothing brush has a nice patina and has been turned so beautifully. The soft bristles are a blond color.

Nosegay Tobacco Tin

Nosegay Tobacco Tin

This charming little tin was made in England, and originally held 2 oz. of tobacco. The top bears a banner that says "Nosegay," surrounded by ribbons & flowers, and the word "Special." The tin is printed in white, red, and gold.

Shows some rust, and is quite worn inside and out. On the side of the lid, is printed "W. & F. Faulkner," the manufacturer.

Whaler Charles R. Morgan - Embroidery

This piece of embroidery shows the legendary whaling ship, Charles W. Morgan. It is embroidered on very light brown colored cloth, in brown, red, yellow, white, and blue. A cartouche in the upper left corner, meant to look like a parchment scroll, reads "Whaler Charles W. Morgan, 1841-1921." If you look closely, you'll see a spouting whale in the bottom left corner!

I don't know the age of this piece; it came to me with a large lot of early 20th century sewing things. Most of those items dated from the 1910s- early 1950s. It is in beautiful condition; I found no condition issues.

It measures approximately 13 inches wide by 11 inches tall. It would look great framed, or made into a pillow.
