Tiny tape loom. 5″ wide x 5″ tall including handle. Fine wood pegged construction. The three holes in the handle were probably used to attach one or more extension handles. Obviously used for very dainty weaving. All original with one stable age split as shown below scalloped border. Very unusual to find a tape loom in this small size with such excellent workmanship.

Finely carved matching pair of small rustic wall shelves/sconces. Tramp art style chip carving along borders and birch bark trim on shelves with scalloped rim. Incised decoration on shelf supports and finials. Nice patina. 12″ high and 5″ wide. Minor restoration to scalloped trim on shelf on left and shelf on right has small area of old white paint on trim which we elected not to remove or cover. Never rigged with permanent candle holders and no evidence of charring, so may have been used as shelves to display small items. Circa 19th – early 20th century. (BS-22)

We believe this is an uncommon form for a Nantucket basket. Stands 4 1/2″ tall. there are traces of an old sticker in the bottom of the interior that probably can be removed if desired. We chose not to do this while it has been in our personal collection and will leave the decision up to the new owner. There are traces of what may have been an old red wash or stain visible in the photographs. (Inv. BO-36)
