Butler Bread Basket

LARGER IMAGE
  Butler Bread Basket - $8.50

This is my interpretation of a bread basket made in the Butler Tinshop in East Greenville, New York, circa 1824-1855. Nine of Aaron and his wife, Sarah’s, children survived. Their daughter Ann learned to paint at an early age and was most likely taught all phases of the trade which would have included the decorating. According to the family’s history she took over the decorating of the tinware when she was 14 or 15. Use as a bread basket, fill with fruit, or use in any way to decorate your home.

Buckley Salmon Coffin Tray

LARGER IMAGE
  Buckley Salmon Coffin Tray - $8.00

This is my interpretation of a one-sheet waiter (tray) made in the Oliver Buckly tinshop in Stevens Plains, Maine. Salmon was used in many of the decorations done in this shop. I was intrigued with this piece, since this is not a color usually seen in this style painting during this period. I think it makes this a bit more feminine, perhaps, and is perfect for a bedroom as well as other areas of your home.

Daffodil Document Box

LARGER IMAGE
  Daffodil Document Box - $8.00

This is my interpretation of a design originally painted by one of the Francis sisters - Mary, Harriett, Isabel, Sally, or Maria. They worked in the Stevens Plains, Maine tin-shop owned by Thomas Brisco. Since pieces were not signed, we do not know which sister may have accomplished this. Designs were specific to certain shops and make it easier to identify the area where it was painted, not the person.

Lighthouse Coffeepot

LARGER IMAGE
  "Lighthouse" Coffeepot - $8.50

My interpretation of a "lighthouse"-shaped coffeepot most likely made and decorated in New York or Connecticut, circa 1825-1850. Many tin shops dotted this area. "Flowering" most likely was done by a female member of the tin-smith’s family.

Rosebud Coffin Tray

LARGER IMAGE
  Rosebud Coffin Tray - $8.50

This is my interpretation of a tray attributed to the North Tin-shop in Fly Creek, New York. Steven North apprenticed as a tinsmith and moved to Fly Creek, near Cooperstown, and opened a tin-shop. His sons, Albert, and for a short time Linus, operated tin shops. Distinctions on North tin include petaled flowers with wide center strokes with yellow cross-hatching, small strokes, or dots in the centers; scalloped flowers with over-strokes resembling a pinwheel; rosebuds; blossoms and buds may have yellow outlining. This piece is perfect as an addition to any decorating style.
