The Curious Cat has found a wonderful assortment of items in this quiet little home in Chelmsford. The owners were an Engineer, a Town Historian, a Scout Master, an Artist, a Jeweler, and Collectors. Everything is top shelf!!! While there are some larger items the stars are the smalls including Zsnoly Porcelain, Henend Porcelain, Tom Kinkad Knomes, Llardos, Depression glassware and much more. Of unique interest are vintage/antique Boy Scout and Girl Scout items including badges, emblems, buckles, clothing, a bugle, first aid kit, canteen, books and much more. Several "Boys Life" magazines (one from 1964 and one from 1916) in plastic are in very good condition; we also have a vintage "Harry Pedler" Bugle with case. Other possessions include vintage linens and fabrics, and vintage clothing from Budapest. Also included is a 5-piece Stanley bedroom set, a Martha Washington Sewing Cabinet, and a mid-Century Bar. We have several beautiful lamps, including a funky 1955 Gerald Thunston tripod floor lamp, wooden and metal storage cabinets, unholstered chairs, a vintage desk, bookshelves, a couch, beautiful side tables, a 6 foot by 6 foot lighted cherry china cabinet, and nearly two dozen beautiful oils and prints in addition to several illustrated vintage plates. In addition, the resident artist's jewelry table is available, an small oxy-acetylene torch for light metal jewelry work, an easel, paints and other supplies, and a very nice assortment of high quality rugs. The Historians will find very old "Town" Books from Lowell, Chelmsford, and Lexington. There are also vintage booklets about the making of the Quabbin Reservoir. Outside the house we have an Ariens snowblower, a Snapper riding lawnmower, a Lawn Boy lawn mower, a wagon, a garden cart, a smoker, some yard/garden tools, a blower and a few hand tools. There are also several old wooden shipping boxes, two very old Speedway flyers and a very rusted red wagon. We just discovered a very old middle or far Eastern Bayonet. As of this date we have not been able to really go through everything so we are certain there are more lovely nuggets to be found so please check back in the next few days for more information and pictures.
