Rare 17th century antique American iron boot scraper found in the Borough of Stonington, CT. This a very scarce find; 17th century examples are nearly impossible to come by. This colonial boot scraper came from the front stoop of one of the original houses in the center of the old village. It measures 13.5 x 8.5 inches across the feet, 9 inches wide and 12 inches high. Some minor loss yo one foot. This piece was hand forged and hand welded by a blacksmith.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
