You can also expect dish- and glassware (HUGE collection of vintage novelty and studio pottery mugs), housewares, bric-a-brac, antique and vintage smalls, decorative objects, vintage cameras, 4-5 antique and vintage typewriters, vintage toys and games (two very nice ca. 1920s dolls: one Kammer and Reinhardt doll with bisque head (mold #126) & composition body and original wig, one Schoenhut ball jointed doll missing original wig, plus some early doll clothes!), three stuffed racks of vintage (mostly) women’s clothing (mostly 30s-70s, including an early 20th C. beaver fur stove pipe top hat, a late-30s-early-40s era zip front cotton playsuit with matching bolero!) and costume jewelry (small amount of sterling), a nice group of Mid-Century era repro Pre-Columbian ceramic figures and other travel souvenirs, wall art and sculpture (some original folk art, paintings, prints), a couple WWI era trench art brass artillery shell vases (one ornate, one plain), a couple hundred records (mostly LPs and 78s), an early tabletop loom, antique glass bottle collection, a beautiful early 1900s plaster fashion bust (French?) and lots more!!!
