Three (3) assorted treenware kitchen items including a large carved wooden burl water dipper, a carved burl mortar with a wooden pestle and a red painted miniature powder keg or cask with wooden bands having interlocking fingers. Ranging in size from 7 1/2" H x 7" W to 8 1/4" H x 26" L. American, 19th century. Provenance: The estate of Charles K. Davis, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from his father, Charles K. Davis of Fairfield, CT. Note: Charles Krum Davis Sr. (1889-1968) was chairman of the Remington Arms Company, and a passionate early collector of Americana. With the help of a few important dealers, primarily Israel Sack, Davis assembled what has been called one of the most important private collections of early Americana. His home was profiled in the Magazine Antiques, January and March, 1941. Much of Mr. Davis Sr.'s collection ultimately went to Winterthur and other museums. Condition: All pieces overall good condition. Dipper with some wood shrinkage and wear to one end. Pestle with losses to tip of handle. The powder keg or cask having a loose band.
