This chair was as legend has it was made for my great grandmother as a child over 150 years ago. Wood was said to be of Apple wood, seat was said to be rawhide from horse hide. I have set it in this setting so show it's size. I have duplicated the wood parts from a Walnut tree I took down but have yet to rawhide, a bit of Elk hide for the seat. This may be the oldest manmade item I have...maybe not...but I likes it
I think with the examples given, folks just might have some old stuff they don't think of. A pocket watch for example. We have my Wife's Grampa's pocket watch. Have no idea how old. I have both my Grampa's wristwatches. I have my Grampa's discharge papers from WWI. Recently I uncovered a pipe I've had many years, with a note from my Gramma in the bowl saying it was her Dad's pipe. Also, we have quite an assortment of English china that my Wife inherited from her Canadian ancestors. Although not as old, I have a 69-year old highchair my Grampa made me when I was a baby. I wont be here forever, and my kids don't want more stuff, so what's a feller to do to plan for the disposal of lifes treasures?
