A favorite piece of furniture in many American homes. The slant-front secretary bookcase offers tons of organizing opportunities in a smart, compact space. Large drawers, a writing surface with pigeon holes &  pen drawers, as well a glass-front display case for heirlooms or old leather bound books.

Item - 5 Stereoptic viewer and a thick stack of stereoptic views.

 This unit is more decorative than many having both  maple and cherry wood. 100% complete. 

Item - 6 Wall-mount candle box/match safe.

Handmade in the 19th Ceentury by a tinsmith. This unit would hold wooden stick matches on one side and spent matches on the other, each side offering a strike surface. Candles were a valued household commodity.and used down to the final inch or untill it hurt, which ever came first. 

Item - 7 Ornate wrought-iron patio set.

This Mid Century iron patio set is endurable as it is charming. Four strong chairs with cushioned seats. The upholstery is fine and ready to entertain, or easy to recover if you want it to coordinate with your current patio colors. 

 A little surface rust speaks of the age of this vintage set. I think it looks great over the white paint. 

Item - 8 Vintage aluminum patio glider.

This vintage aluminum glider looks like a tall cool tropical drink enjoyed at an island resort. 

The fabric and accent pillows are still fresh and covered right over the original vinyl. (The glider is on a covered porch, out of reach of direct sun and rain).

The family member that re-covered this glider tells us "The glider cushions are original to the glider I covered the cushions (probably 20 years ago!) being careful not to alter the original cushions in any way. The cushions are dark green, plastic/vinyl (I don’t really know what that material is actually). They were well used but as I remember, no tears. Padding was lean so I added extra padding under the fabric I used."

The seat cushion is all original with a wooden frame and built-in springs.

This is a track-base glider. Currently it is not gliding smoothly, it may simply need grease or some new roller bearings. You can buy new bearings at ACE or True Value Hardware.
