Authentic Large Terra-Cotta Urn From the Historic Yorktowne Hotel

Authentic Large Terra-Cotta Urn From the Historic Yorktowne Hotel

Antique Folding Pie Table

 These are in working condition & ready to be installed. Has 3 Candelabra sockets (bulbs not included) and 4 glass beveled panels that have a 16 point star cut into the glass. The glass panels have a slight blueish or green tint to them and refract light beautifully! 

This is an authentic antique coal shovel believed to be used at the Reading Railroad. Measures: 37 5/8" Long
9 1/2" wide (at the widest point)

It is marked:

Flint Edge
Heat Treated
R. CO.
Flint Edge
(Diamond shape carved into wood)
Markings on metal part of handle that we can't read

From our research we believe that R Co. Stands for Reading Co. Which is The Reading Railroad Co. and that would also explain the diamond shape carved into the side which is part of the log for the Reading Railroad. It matches the type and the age for an antique Steam Coal Train Shovel. As you can see in the photos, there is some very old splitting on the handle but it is still good and solid. All of the fasteners are still good and tight. Just a neat piece for any collection!!

Authentic Vintage Mini Chandeliers From the Historic Yorktowne Hotel!!

This iconic brand of ride on toys was known for their sturdy & fun pedal tractors with really great designs!
This piece is all original and I believe is only missing the smoke stack that fits on the top and the rubber tubes that
would be on the engine to resemble spark plug wires (these are almost always gone since the rubber they were made with dry rotted).
All paint is original, all decals are original, and this great piece shows very little wear! This model is extremely hard to find, especially
in working, original condition!! These featured ball bearing wheels and semi-pneumatic tires as
well as ball bearing chain drive with motor tone gear shift and a spring type adjustable seat!! Talk about super toy!!!
The color is called flamboyant red as stated in the 1964 catalog page you can see attached to this tractor. The Dump Trac is another great,

all original piece that you get along with the Murray Super Diesel Tractor and features a working dump
bed that you can activate from the seat. Great piece for display or to
add to any collection! This is one hard to find piece of toy history!! This great piece is now available here at the mall in window booth #110!

We Love History, We love the Story behind an item. On this page we will show you some of the exciting items that have

gone through our mall here at Dover and the stories behind them!!

This a really rare and unique Piece. We have been researching this for a while now and haven't been able to find a bunch on it. It came with the paper that you see in the photos. This is a late 1800's, all original Self Sealing Stoneware Butter Jar. The underside of the lip is marked:

T.W. (some other letters we can't make out)

PAT. OCT 14, 84


Water would be added to the trough that the rim makes then when the stoneware lid is put back on with the bottom edge being submersed into the water it creates as seal. Good for butter, milk & cream, oysters, ice cream, and more.

These would keep the items cool and fresh and are very hard to find. Very nice condition and a great piece for any collection!!!

This is currently for sale in booth #110 Here at the Dover Antique Mall and waiting to become part of your collection!
