An elegant Kalo sterling porringer with a hand hammered finish. Marks indicate a date of manufacture of 1912 - 1916.

Width is 5 1/4", height is 1 1/2", width with handle is 6 3/4". An identical piece is in the Design Collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art. A nice example of collectible Chicago silver.
Glamorous, hand painted, hand blown art glass vase. This is likely European - French or Swedish - and very Hollywood Regency. Bright and matte gold, raised enamels and strong design give this vase character and presence. Height is 10 ", width at top is 6.5 " and condition is excellent with no damage. Glass rings nicely when tapped.
High quality French Alencon lace tablecloth. Size is a generous 110" x 62", condition is excellent vintage. There are perhaps 6 TINY thread breaks (see images) and 2 visibly discolored spots (see images.)There are no holes bigger than a pencil point, no tears, no losses. Color is a rich ecru linen or cotton, this cloth likely dates from the first quarter of the 20th century when we entertained so elegantly. Heirloom lace for the bridal table or ultimate hostess.
A sveltly modeled Just Andersen Danish pewter tea set. Note the heart shape to the lid of the pot and the echo in the shape of the creamer.

Fine Danish design from a great maker.

Kralik or Rindskopf art glass vase. Rich colors and a fritted surface distinguish this vase. Height is 7 1/2", width is 4 1/2". Condition is perfect. Lovely Bohemian glass marked "made in Czechoslovokia" in silver paint on the foot. I also have a low bowl in this colorway.
