Antique Folk Art Hand Carved 24ft Wooden Chain Tassel Caged Ball Ends Milk Wash:
Welcome to our sales!
ITEM DESCRIPTION: For your consideration is a piece of early American folk art, a carved wooden chain from the late 1800's to early 1900's. The chain is hand-carved and retains much of its old milk wash paint. The chain has a carved tassel on each end, along with a ball floating in a box (one end has two boxes with balls). Much of the chain appears to be carved from a single piece of wood. The links are fairly even in size and each is about 5" long. The exact history of the chain is unknown. I purchased it from a local family who had moved from North Carolina, and said the chain had been in their family for several generations. Please contact me if you have any questions.
SIZE: The total length of the chain is approximately 24 feet. Each link is about 5" long, 2" in diameter (sides of each link) and 2" wide. Tassels are 9" long and the boxed balls are 3-1/2" x 1-1/2". Chain weighs 6 pounds.
CONDITION: There are a few places along the chain where you can see some repairs, some quite primitive. Overall, the chain is in very good condition, is in one piece and retains some of its original milk wash paint.

SHIPPING: Our shipping costs in the listing are determined by estimating the package weight and box size and sometimes adding a minimal handling fee (usually $.50 to $2 depending on item size and how fragile it is). The cost of insurance is included in all shipping unless it is not mentioned above. Occasionally, we may estimate a shipping weight too high, and will come up with more money for shipping than will be required. This happens mostly with very heavy items. If we have estimated too high and the shipping cost is more than $1.00 over our original estimate, we will issue a refund for the difference to your PayPal account.
