Rachel's Antiques For Sale

I am under contract to sell a few items for an elderly couple from Antigo, Wisconsin.  Rachel, is (around 80? I didn't ask) a retired kindergarten teacher.  Many of these items that are for sale were her family or friends of family pieces she inherited.  This couple has many lovely things.  They were blessed with boys and their daughter-in-laws aren't "interested" in any of these items.  That is often the case in this business.  So, these are items Rachel is willing to part with now.  











This is an oak secretary that measures 37" x 14" and 66" high and original patina.  There is minor condition issues due to normal wear for it's age.  This and several other pieces belonged to a bachelor that was a family friend.   She is asking $275.00

























The Columbia Grafonola works  is measures 19" wide, 21" deep and 43" tall, original finish.  One of "fins" to the folding section is in need of fixing and I did see a drop of paint (you can see it in picture above) otherwise in good shape.  You get the record player, the two metal advertising needle tins, needles and the Victor and Columbia records in the pictures before.  She is asking $135.00 for all of it.









The above pictures is a lot of records, jackets and partial sets, the thick 78s.  She is asking $50.00 for all.









This Victorian settee and chair set was recovered several years ago (cost over $800) in a nice fabric with trim, it's very clean.  The wood trim was left original.  The settee is 58" x 21" x 42 1/2" and the chair is 18" x 18" x 37".   She is asking $265.00 for the set.  




This table Rachel called the "library" table?  It measures 30" x 42" x 30" with three 8" leaves.  Oak with neat legs and detail carving.  She is asking $225.00





Queen Anne oil lamp #22, 19" tall     $40.00









Ironstone pitcher and bowl set - several condition issues.  $35.00 for the set.

I am going to be listing these on my Town Hall Trinkets On Line group page that is on my business facebook page.  Here is the link if you would like to join in:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1914536328603700/?ref=pages_profile_groups_tab&source_id=729693193716630

  3. I hope you find wonderful new homes for her collection. I imagine it's quite difficult to part with things that were bought with love or passed down. The first piece reminds me of something my MIL has in her house.
