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.

These 14K yellow gold and lapis pear shaped earrings are 1-1/4" high. The beaded gold frame sets off the deep blue lapis stone. The little flecks that are visible in the lapis stones are inclusions of pyrite, which resembles gold, and is very common in lapis. There is a post and clip for pierced ears on the back, but the post can easily be bent out of the way or removed for someone without pierced ears. The clips are marked 14K. The earrings date to about the 1970's, and the condition is excellent.

This etching by Piranesi is 15-1/2" by 10", 23" by 17-1/4" overall. The image is an elaborate commode decorated with horses, birds, putti, classical heads and fleurs de lys, topped by two urns with classical figures flanking a large clock with three full length figures. The background is fanciful and delicate wallpaper that contains scrolls, birds and flying mythological creatures. The etching is signed in the plate Cavalier Piranesi at the lower right. It appears to come from a book and is numbered 55 at the lower right. The etching is beautifully framed with an apparently hand carved frame and an eglomise black "mat" with a silver line next to the etching. Piranesi lived from 1720-1778. While this is certainly an original etching, evidenced by the plate impression on the paper, it is possible that this may be a posthumous print from the 19th century. The condition in the frame appears to be excellent, no foxing, tears or other apparent damage.

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.

This landscape in oil measures 10" by 15-1/4" including the frame. The painting seems to be on a stiff material which is not canvas, wood or board. The painting itself is quite charming, with a large mountain in the center and an adobe type dwelling on the lower left. There is a small rainbow at the upper left. I do not see a signature on the front, but there is a label on the back that says Van Schaik. I have been unable to identify the artist. The painting dates to about the 1950's, and the condition is good. The painting is a little darker than it appears in the photos, because of the reflection from the flash. It could probably use a cleaning and there is a small flake in the paint at the center right near the frame.

This is the 1985 new edition, revised of what was probably the first book entirely devoted to the subject of British ceramics, c. 1877. The author covers all the manufacturers of the time and interviewed or communicated with them all, so this constitutes valuable source material. There are 642 pages with nearly two thousand fine engravings. The hardcover book is in excellent condition, almost unread, with the dust jacket.
