My New Treasures

Do you find some days you just can't find anything and other times you find the mother load... lately I keep finding stuff that I really don't want to find (okay maybe I changed my mind, read below)... I love crocks and have them stashed all over my house... but I have run out of room.
I found this crock for $1.50 at one of my favourite thrift stores... examining it I noticed Hiawatha Tobacco Works etched into the bottom side... the pear is handmade and signed $1.00 - glass grapes $1.00
(Update: I have been researching the crock and I think I might have found me a real treasure here... HTW was established by Daniel Scotten in 1856... I can't find anything about the crock though... I already did the ebay route...if anyone could put me in the right direction I would really appreciate it)
I found and purchased this on Ebay today... a receipt from 1895 from the Hiawatha Tobacco Works

Desk Organizer... I am sure this is a Bombay piece
