“Syster”, Ship Replica made by Swedish Brothers

Between 1900 - 1906 - $1,200.00

The Model “Syster” is a replica of an actual “Tall-Ship,” by the name, that sailed under the flag of Sweden. “As a young man, my uncle’s brother, Philip Johnson, sailed on that ship, on all the Oceans of the World and up every navigable river.” -Earl Duncan, owner of replica

 

The model was made by Philip, and one of his brothers, Bror Johnson, both originally from Sweden. Phillip lived on Lake Delavan (Wisconsin), and Bror lived in Rockford (Illinois). The model was made  between 1900 and 1909. In the late 1930’s, the third brother, my uncle Ed (Carl Edward Johnson) also from Sweden, made the wood and glass case for the model and painted the backdrops. Ed lived in Chicago and later on Lake Delavan.

 

Model includes the wood and glass display case.

Vintage and Antique Iron Collectables

Aged 30 - 100+ years - $10.00 - $130.00/each

Any iron collectors out there? We’ve got quite the collection going. From mid century travel folding Winsted branded irons to antique sad irons, also known as flat irons. For those of us less versed  in iron collecting, “sad” is an Old English word meaning “solid.” And boy are these some solid irons. “Sad” is used to describe heavy and large irons. The larger and heavier they were the better they hold in the heat needed to de-wrinkle and flatten clothing. Many antique irons came with decorative trivets to hold the iron in between uses, to keep from the hot iron’s ruining furnishings or burning anything. 

 

As we love to find new uses for old objects here are some ways people use old irons today: bookends, paper weight, door stop, decor, or just plain old collect them and make into a rustic display on a shelf.
