This is a decorative pillow 16" x 17-1/2" with a wonderful round needlepoint 9-1/4" in diameter of two kittens focusing on a small ball. The fabric on the back and two corners on the front is charcoal gray velvet. There is a lot of hand stitching where the different fabrics are joined together. The needlepoint is in excellent condition. Some of the old fabrics have a little wear, and one corner of the velvet on the back has a small repair. The fabrics on the front look like they date to about the 1940's. Anyway, this is a charming and special pillow that would enhance a window seat, bed or sofa.

This unusually tall Orrefors fish graal vase is 7-3/4" high with a narrow opening at the top. The vase itself weighs over 6 lbs. This is an art glass sculpture and was not necessarily intended to be used as a vase. It has an engraved mark on the bottom that reads Orrefors/Graal Ha 635R/Edward Hald, which dates the vase to 1961. The designer Hald worked for Orrefors from 1917-1978. This vase has a clever design of fish, seashells, seaweed rendered in black and soft green on the parison or blank, which is then further cased in thick, clear glass. The images go all around the vase, and the clear cased glass creates the effect that the viewer is looking at the images under water. The condition is excellent with just the usual minor scratches on the base, consistent with an age of 53 years.

This Meissen Rose dinner plate is 9-1/2" in diameter. There is a large rose in the center with three rose buds around the rim, which is trimmed in gold which is all intact. The crossed swords mark on the back dates the plate to the late 19th - early 20th century. There are two scores through the swords. There is a pattern number 135 in orange and an impressed mark 82, which may denote the painter. The plate is in excellent condition with just a minor dimple on the top under the glaze.

This unusual form Flygsfors bowl or sculpture from Sweden is 18.25" long, 7" wide, 4" high. The colors are cranberry, white and clear. The bottom is signed Flygsfors 61 Coquille. The Coquille mark is not pictured. The piece dates to 1961, and the condition is excellent, with some normal scratches on the bottom. This is a dramatic piece which would look equally great on a glass shelf, coffee table or a sideboard. While it is basically an art sculpture, it can still function as a bowl.

Bertil Vallien is one of the most prominent glass artists, and his work appears in many museum collections. The vase dates to about the 1970's, and the condition is excellent, no damage.

This fun and elegant fan is about 10-1/2" high and about 18" wide when fully extended. The feathers are very soft ostrich feathers and appear to be in excellent vintage condition. The black sticks are carved with stars, circles and half moons, with applied paste jewels here and there. The sticks appear to be either bakelite or light weight wood and in good condition, no cracks or chips. According to The Letts Guide to Collecting Fans by Susan Mayor, this type of fan was used up to the 1930's.

This striking plate or bowl in Flygsfors glass from Sweden is 13-1/4" in diameter, about 1-3/4" high. It weighs about 7 lbs., so it's quite heavy. The pinwheel design is executed in cranberry pink and white cased in clear glass. It is marked on the bottom Flygsfors 56 for 1956. There are no cracks or chips, just some scratches, especially on the bottom and a few minor scratches on top, to be expected in vintage glass that is almost 60 years old. The design looks like it could have been done today. Flygsfors is included in Fifties Glass by Leslie Pina. This is classic, high quality mid century glass at an amazingly reasonable price.

I have never seen another version of this vintage '50's glass bowl in the form of an artist's palette, including a large opening for the finger. It measures 13" long, 10" wide, 2-1/4" high. The predominant color is cranberry or deep pink over white on the bottom, all cased in clear glass, with five spots of blue to represent the paint. The only mark on the bottom is Flygsfors without a date. Leslie Pina discusses Flygsfors glass in her book Fifties Glass and observes that many of the pieces were more sculpture than functional glass. This bowl could certainly be used for fruit, etc. but it makes a great display piece without the fruit.

This Flygsfors coquille sculpture or vase measures 20" high. A similar piece is pictured on page 130 in Fifties Glass by Leslie Pina and described as follows: "Organic shape with four stretched appendages, the milk glass center cased with [orange] and clear crystal, and one of the most fantastic sculptural forms of the ... series, in which function is no longer taken seriously." Indeed, this piece is more of a sculpture for display, rather than a true vase. The glass is green, white and clear. The bottom is engraved Flygsfors 63 on one side and Coquille on the other side. (The Coquille mark is not pictured.) The designer artist is Paul Kedelv. The condition is excellent, with some scratches on the bottom, consistent with age. There are no cracks or chips. This is an iconic piece of 60's Swedish art glass, ideal for the discerning collector.

This purple blown glass chandelier is approximately 12-1/2" high, not including the chain at the top or the ceiling cap, which is 5-1/4" in diameter. For the sake of safety a new socket has been inserted, and the wiring is new. When installed the glass top for the chandelier must be secured to the bottom with wires in the loops on both the top and bottom. When a bulb is placed inside the glass, the purple color of the glass becomes lighter and casts a soft light. The glass appears to be blown into a mold, probably Bohemian glass. The decorative wiring applied to the glass emphasizes the subtle quilting pattern in the glass. The condition is excellent, it dates to about the 1920-'30's. This chandelier would make a beautiful accent piece in a foyer, bathroom, etc.

This Haviland Limoges gravy or sauce boat has an attached under plate. A gravy ladle would sit inside the boat to make service easy. The under plate is 9" long by 6-1/4" wide. The gravy boat is 7-1/4"long by 4" wide by 2-1/2" high. The two marks on the bottom show that the porcelain was both produced and decorated at the Haviland factory. The decoration consists of soft blue-green scrolls with gold accents. There is also raised embossing in the white area on the under plate and the base of the boat. The piece dates to around the 1950's, and the condition is excellent, like unused.

This is a set of six Bohemian wine glasses on stems. They are 6-1/2" high, 2-7/8" in diameter across the top. The stem is hexagonal, tapered from top to narrower at bottom. The stem and the foot are clear. The bowl at top is slightly nipped in and flared out at the top and is a beautiful medium green cut to clear to emphasize the grapes, leaves and tendrils. There are no marks on the glasses, but the quality is very fine, and the glass rings at a high pitch. Each glass weighs 8.7 ounces, a substantial but not overly heavy weight. There is a total of 7 glasses, essentially a set of 6 with an extra glass. They are Bohemian, date to about 1900, and the condition is excellent. There are almost no scratches on the bottoms, which indicates that the glasses were used very little.

This brush is 9" long, 3" wide. It is marked twice on the side with the interlocking UB logo for Unger Brothers, 925 Fine, Pat Feb 10 1903. The design appears in high relief with a fantasy of swirls and waves surrounding a winged cupid kissing a sleeping figure. There are more waves and swirls down the handle terminating with a woman's face wrapped in swirls of hair, crowned with a shell on both the top and bottom of the handle. The design is quintessential Art Nouveau. Except for very narrow edges, there is no undecorated space. As far as I know, these are the original bristles, which have been soaked and washed. The condition is very good, with just a slight depression in the silver at the top just above the cupid.

This quilt measures 69" X 85". The colors on the top are predominantly wine, green and mustard. The quilt squares and most of the quilt have hand stitching. The back is plain white muslin, and there is one long seam that has machine stitched finish on the edge and the seam itself. I am guessing that the quilt is American and dates to about the 1940's. The condition is excellent, and the quilt appears to have been used very little. I have not laundered the quilt.

This Royal Copenhagen porcelain vase stands 12" high, 5" diameter at the top. The gray-blue glaze at the top shades to a lighter gray-blue toward the bottom. There is a large floppy white flower on the front with large, long gray-green leaves, but I do not recognize the flower. On the back are two butterflies. The Royal Copenhagen Denmark mark on the bottom dates the vase to 1967. The condition is excellent.
