News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we had a sunny day this week. Hope springs eternal.

We continue working to finish the listing for our Spectacular Summer Auction. We expect to have a full dealer field with lots of Avoca Prime spaces as well. Our Antique Tool Fair has become a great place to purchase antique tools and related antiques and we invite you to join us on July 18, 19 & 20 here at the Donnelly Compound in Avoca.

In addition to putting together great auctions for the Summer and Fall, we are working on more mundane things like fixing a longstanding problem with the fact that the rain gutters on the back section of the warehouse overflow during periods of heavy rain. We will be installing larger, commercial size rain gutters and downspouts so as to overburden the underground piping system and then we'll replace that. Nothing is ever finished.

We are delighted to announce that our Summer and Fall auctions will include the collection of Nicholas Starr of Exeter, New Hampshire. Nick Starr has been a supporter of our auctions from the outset and we are honored to be bringing his collection, which was started by his father more than seventy years ago, to market. Among many noteworthy items, the Starr Collection contains more than two hundred Native American crooked knives, including many of great artistic merit. Some of the very best will be featured in our September 14, 2019 catalogue auction In Nashua, New Hampshire. The three photographs following the aerial view show some of the Starr Collection as it was displayed in the large barn adjacent to the ca. 1740 home. Stay tuned. Details to come.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Unmarked : Hand Forged Harvesting Tool. For Root Crops?. Early Appearance. Length: 19.50 Inches. This looks like something you might use for digging root vegetables, although we have no way of knowing. By the way, ancient legend has it that in Britain, during the Dark Ages, an alchemist's experiment gone awry resulted in a vegetable garden being saturated with a noxious mixture. Upon harvesting the vegetables, it was discovered that all had turned to brass. Rather than declare the crop a total waste, the turnips, beets, carrots, etc. were drilled through the top and made into plumb bobs. The resulting styles were so popular that they have persisted to this day. An extraordinarily well preserved plumb bob harvesting tool. (GOOD+). This item was sold on October 7, 1999 for $85.00. jpg_file
