There are so many kinds of antiques that I love, ambulance and antique bandboxes are at the top of my list. I don’t own any antique ones, there they are much too costly, buy cialis but I have made a few out of reproduction 18th century wallpaper. I keep these in an antique cupboard, called a Jackson Press, a cupboard that was used to hold linens in the 1800′s. They sit on the top shelf, above my makedos, and every now and then, I go in that room just to look at them. I have also included a photo with a chaulkware pincushion that was given to me for Christmas by a dear friend. I love it too! If you like these photos, you will find some of them available as prints or note cards on my website, just click and come on over for a visit. There are lots to see.
Anyone that is a serious collector hopes to have a chance to own at least one made by Hannah Davis The time when bandboxes were most popular was the second quarter of the 19th century. Her boxes were covered with floral patterns of hand-blocked wallpaper, and were all lined with newspapers. She made bargains with her friends and neighbors, and in payment for the papers they saved for her, she allowed them to choose from her finished boxes. Oh, would I love to have one, wouldn’t you. Here are some photos I have taken of antique ones that I have seen on my travels through Chester Country, Pa., while shopping for antiques for me and my store. I wonder if any are made by Hannah? Hmm, next time, I’ll pay more attention. Enjoy the photos and be sure to click on her name to read more about her.
