The Nashville antiques show

Dropped by the Tailgate Antique Show on Saturday, which was smaller than usual but promises to be much bigger come February in its new home at the Hendersonville Expo Center. That got Candler Arts excited enough to sign up as an exhibitor. At the show's soon-to-be-former home at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds we snapped a few photos of what was for sale.
1. and 2. Cast iron string holder, c. 1860, $1,900, and whirligig from Vermont, 1875-85, $1,250, Higganum House Antiques, Higganum, Ct.
3. and 4. Tourist Rooms, $750, big putty knife, $950, and fishing painting, Nancy and Craig Cheney Art and Antiques, Newark, Ohio.
5. and 6. Kentucky quilt dated March 20, 1893, showing a child kneading dough (?), among other things, $900, Props, Mountain Pleasant, Tn.
7. Cut paper memorial (detail) for a woman who was born March 31, 1868, and died Dec. 16, 1901. American & European Antiques, Ltd., Evansville, Ind.
8. and 9. Double-sided painting on metal, c. 1940s, found in a barn in Plymouth, Indiana, $595, Jonathan's Fine Art & Antiques, Burr Oak, Ind.
