MS005 Large Early Pail Bench

Minimum Bid: $500

Range:$800-1000

Sold: $950

In this auction we have quite a few crocks from one collection. These were displayed on some of the loveliest early pail benches I have seen. I am thrilled to be offering this killer threesome. The first of these is a large bench - 42 1/2" long, 44 1/2" tall, and 12 1/2" deep. Found in the Owen Sound area. Mix of square and round nails. Old grey overpaint on an original red. There is just the one thin layer of overpaint that could be removed. Excellent condition. Small piece of the top board missing at the back left rear. Curious oval shaped areas of wear on the sides over certain nail spots. This is an impressive bench.

MS006 Medium Early Pail Bench

Minimum Bid: $400

Range:$600-800

Sold: $500

This bench measures 43 1/2" wide, 32 1/2" tall, and 14 1/4" deep. Came from a farm in Kitchener. Scraped down to the original rough blue finish. Whoever did the work was careful to leave as much of the original blue as possible. This piece is not scraped down in areas that are not visible (the back boards and the underside of shelves). On these surfaces there is one layer of white paint. Definitely an early bench. Mix of square and round nails. Great cut out foot treatment to the sides! I love the surface on this bench, early and crude.

MS007 Small Early Pail Bench

Minimum Bid: $200

Range:$300-400

Sold: $210

This small bench measures 24" wide, 32 3/4" tall, and 11" deep. This is likely the earliest of the three. Most of the nails have rose heads, though there are square as well. Tremendous surface with nothing but honest wear. This bench was a red colour that has almost completely faded out everywhere but on the back boards. A beautiful early untouched bench. This one was found in Pennsylvania.
