‘Dr. Walker’s California Vinegar Bitters, Free From Alcohol’ (yech!)…one cannot imagine that this was a particularly popular drink in its day! J. Walker was the proprietor for this concoction, and his ‘patent medicine’ was sold through R. H. McDonald & Co., Druggists & General Agents with locations in San Francisco and New York. The cord-bound, 38-page, 5 ½” x 8” pamphlet (3.00HJ) was a bible for the Temperance Cause...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$900.00
Almost exactly one foot tall, this ancient Egyptian red ware, wide-mouthed jar (102.68HD) is intact and in overall good condition. It does have a small cluster of radiating stress cracks on the inner wall (they just barely reach the outer surface), one area of surface erosion probably caused by partial exposure to the elements (oval shaped and about four inches in diameter), and a fair amount of shallow surface pitting. None of the foregoing affects the stability or decorative quality of this la...

Dating into the 1960s, this sweet cultured pearl and diamond evening ring (MAJP4) measures 7 ½ on a jeweler’s ring mandrel, and justifiably whispers to be worn.

A pair of 2.5-point single cut diamonds set slightly apart is centered at top of the ring. This very attractive pre-owned ring is in excellent condition and ready to wear. It comes in a colorful silk pouch to protect th...

The late Dr. Allen Heflin’s collection is known around the world and has been described by a museum curator who was familiar with the collection as ‘unique and we’ll probably never see another like it in the States’. This 4 1/2" tall, Precolumbian offering jar (AXH1650), found by Heflin in the state of Colima in west Mexico July 1952, represents the head of the long worshipped god of thunder and lightning, Tlaloc. Possibly traded from, certainly influenced by the Teotihuacan artisans, th...

From the Sinu horizon of Colombia and dating c.400-1600AD, each of the 30 carved shell pendants or beads in this group (94.183HD) have been reinforced with a custom silver brace to protect it from damage. Ranging in length from 2 ¾” to 3 5/8”, all 30 beads could be arranged on a necklace, or used individually or in small groups in pendant arrays, the patterns of which are limited only by the beader’s imagination. Note silver bale for stringing in the side view of one of the pendants. In v...

This 57” x 114” Navaho area rug (BB.N412) is perhaps the most beautiful of those left in the Bill Branch estate collection.

In overall good condition, it does have some minor staining from use but no significant damage or signs of wear. Grading it at 8-9, it comes with a small display card, our certificate guaranteeing authentic...
