Old Advertising Tool Bag Bowl Nutmeg Grater Cookie Cutters Candle Gathering
What a great piece that will grace any Shaker Peg in style! Everything as pictured inside the tool bag is included with this special gathering and what a neat assortment of goodies you will receive.
This advertising bag marked, “Standard Wholesale Supply, Barrett, Dearborn, MI.” with strong black letters on a buttermilk ground canvas fabric boasts three pockets in the front. Each pocket lends interest with the items they contain and if you so choose you can also add different pieces and use the ones provided elsewhere in your home.
A very unique and hard to find small bowl marked, “Munising” sports the most fabulous rich surface color on this planet! The turnings are clearly visible and this piece of treen is smooth to the touch. This bowl is out of round and does have small areas of white markings as shown in images 9 & 10.
Old tin items include a strap handled camel cookie cutter, unusual nutmeg grater with convenient hanger (does have a small crease in the back as pictured) and a Pennsylvania Dutch, figural man cookie cutter backed on a piece of an old grain sack comprised of burlap. I t has been hand stitched in two corners of the fabric and can easily be removed, if you so choose, by snipping the thread.
An ensample of dried flowers consisting of broom corn, pods, sweet Annie and berries add color and interest while lending a natural look.
Lastly, a candle holder was hand fashioned using an old heart from a door mat located at the top and this holder proudly graces the middle pocket hung by a clothespin.
Of course, this candle is for decorative purposes only and should not be lit when attached to the tool bag or anywhere else because there is no drip pan to catch the wax drippings.
This fun gathering is one of a kind and has all the makings of a showy piece that will certainly get attention! Enjoy!
