CANDLE BOX - SLIDING LID

In the 18th-19th centuries, before oil lamps, everyday source of artificial light, were candles made from animal tallow or beeswax. All candles were handmade through a very time consuming process. Beeswax candles were more expensive than tallow because the household provided the tallow.

All candles were valuable and needed to be protected from bugs and rodents. Candle boxes were made to protect and store them. Candle boxes could be designed to hang or sit  on a table. They could be made of common wood, painted or made of more expensive wood and left unstained. Every household had them.

Offering a freestanding,3 finger sliding top candle box. It has side dovetails and a chamfered bottom. It is dated on the back "1888" and signed and dated "LL 1904" on inside lid.

The dimensions are :17"L,13.25"W,5.25"H.

HORSE BELLS - ACORN DESIGN

Horse Bells can be jingle bells denoting a jingler inside the cast bell or a clapper found in an open type of bell. Both types have been used for sleigh bells. All horse bells are of brass or bronze metal. While antique bells wear well, the original leather straps usually need replacing due to neglect. Bells look wonderful hanging by a fireplace, draped over an old horse collar or hanging on a wall.

Offering a set of 30 antique horse bells, acorn design, two piece stamped. These bells date from 1880 to 1920. They are machine stamped brass over nickle plated bells.. Originally the bottom half was riveted on to the strap with copper rivets. The jinglet was added and the top piece crimped on to complete the bell. The set is mounted on a new laced 72" leather strap with a brass ring for hanging.

This set was cleaned, polished and lacquered in 2004 by Deanna Weed of Classic Bells in Pottsville, Iowa. Ms Weed designed and constructed the laced strap using "Havana Brown" bridle leather keeping the original buckle. The strap insured value was $360.00 in 2004.

REGENCY TEA CADDY

Tea was introduced to England by Queen Catherine wife of Charles II in 1662. Tea was and remained extremely expensive for the next 100 years. Wooden Tea Caddies were made early in the 19th Century  and introduced as a home style accessory in the second half on the 18th Century. The word caddy derives from the Malay "kati",a measure of weight about 3/5 of a kilo. The first caddies were in box form, shaped like small chests, and contained two - three metal canisters. They were mostly mahogany but some were walnut. These caddies were designed to house loose tea and locked to keep it safe.

They were of two types: the austere or rococo. Both styles have handles on top and mounted escutcheons. They differ in the more elaborate being the rococo. The austere had bracket feet or a plinth support base. The lids are stepped, the step often concave. The edges are molded and sides mostly straight. 

Offering a Regency Rosewood Tea Caddy, early 19th Century. This is a austere triple caddy with two lidded rectangular canisters flanking a space in the center for a glass bowl.  The side canisters were for storing loose tea and the glass bowl  was either to mix different teas or for sugar. A Regency Caddy dates 1811-1820 when GeorgeIV of England became Regent. The lines are straight and clean with straight molding. It stands on bun feet and has button handles on either side. The center portion can be removed revealing a "secret space" for silver spoons. It has a keyhole and lock but no key. 

It is in excellent condition with honest wear. The dimensions are : 7.5"T, 14"w, 8"D.
