"A Little Study in Black & White"


Strange postcard. No idea what it's supposed to mean.

Glass Ambrotype of Man with Shotgun


Really nice ruby glass ambrotype of a man aiming a double-barreled shotgun! Sold for $ 515.00 on eBay.

"End of Day" Pottery Head






Here's a nice clay figure of a head that's probably an end of day whimsey. Small (2 1/2" tall) and has a hole on the top, so might have been a match holder. Recently sold on eBay for $ 105.83.
