I have had this store display piece for 30 years! It is definitely Art Deco in design and definitely vintage with its original beveled mirror and original paint. The mirror is in very good condition - no distortion.
The only non-original detail is the green felt covering the display platform which I have changed periodically...
Measurements: Exterior dimensions: 8" x 9.5" x 6mm - Interior opening dimensions: 8" x 6.5" - Mirror - 1/2" bevel
English Hallmarks: Birmingham, 1917. Maker's mark : C & C
Photographed unpolished except for photo #2. I took the second photo after polishing the frame because looking at the first photo, the frame appeared to have several large dents, WHICH IT DOES NOT. The only "damages" are two very tiny dimples at the top edge of the frame - right and left sides...
Measurements: TOP DIAMETER: 1 7/8" - approx. BASE DIAMETER: 1" (base shape is actually triangular) - HEIGHT: 1"
In good condition without chips, flakes, cracks.
The size indicates that this is an individual salt dish or salt cellar. An individual salt dish was placed at each table setting; then a larger, master salt would be placed in the center of the table or at each end. Very Victorian and/or Edwardian table dressing.

This is one of the most beautiful and ornate of the Art Nouveau designs produced by the Gorham Silver Company in the late 1800's. The design is a combination of all that is Art Nouveau: shells, scrolls, leaves, flowers, fruit, puti and a semi nude woman holding a lyre...
Measurements: LENGTH: 44" - HEIGHT - 23" - DIAMETER PIPE: 5/8"
Molded sheet copper with lovely, original verdigris patina except on the end of the arrow feathers.
No damages (such as bullet holes), but it would appear that the top of the vane has been repaired with (probably) lead solder used to re-create the original finial form. (photo#4)

Millstones, or mill stones, are hand shaped stones used in 19th century grist mills, for grinding wheat or other grains.
When mounted on a display stand, the mill stone becomes a true example of primitive American folk art - reminiscent of elega...
Measurements: DIAMETER: 4/1/2"- DEPTH: 7/8" (including tripod legs)
This small sculpture is made of cast bronze with an artist's signature on the back, which is partially illegible (no foundry mark). I can read: "W.H. JR" and the lower case letters "o - m - e."
The sculpted bas relief is very three dimensional and very detailed without any of the blurring seen in less well made castings. All edges are rounded and smooth; beautifully finished...
Measurements: - 6.5" x 7" x 1 1/4" deep - 5" x 5" opening
I believe that the wooden layers are of either cigar box wood or other vintage thin wood packaging such as a box to hold soap.
All in good, solid condition. The thin strips of wood forming the back of the holder for the image is also original. Not original, is the metal hanger (you can see the two holes where the original hanger must have been) and my metal points holding the image in place...
Measurements: LENGTH: 3 1/4" - HEIGHT: 2" - DEPTH: 1"
No stem or carry case.
The design is of a full figured Victorian woman showing a bit of leg with boots and exposed lower arms - perhaps a Victorian actress or music hall performer? Exposed legs and arms were considered very sexy and NOT characteristic of a society lady's clothing.
Undamaged; no repairs. Well used with lovely patina.
Measurements: 6" x 1/2" at the widest dimension - WEIGHT: 1.3 oz.
Hallmarked with the number 12 and "S.R." I have been unable to identify the country of origin, but I purchased two yad from the same estate and the other was pre-1900 Germany.

Clearly marked "sterling" but no manufacturer's name.
I date this adorable postage stamp box to the early 1900's. The ring and jump ring suggest that the box was used on a chatelaine. Now it could be used as an unusual pendant or simply carried in a pocket and used to hold pills. Very secure closure.
Arts and Crafts Movement style lettering.
Measurements: 3 1/4" long x 1 1/4" tall x 1" wide
Black lacquered papier mache shoe snuff box with silver wire pique and MOP inlay.

Measurements: 18" wide x 10.5" tall x 4" depth
WEIGHT: 1# 13 oz. (unboxed)
Wonderfully fierce American eagle carving with wide spread wings and remnants of the original gilding.
Wear to the surface as obvious from the photographs as is the excellent patina.
This carving was obviously part of a larger piece - either a mirror or a cabinet. However, as an object, it is a "stand alone" design - although the forward leaning design does NOT allow the eagle to actually stand alone...
Measurements: 5" to the top of the burner x 2 1/2" base diameter x 3 1/2" midsection diameter
Complete and undamaged miniature BASE & BURNER ONLY in the Cosmos pattern.

Crimping marks on the back of each corner where it was applied to.......?
Photographed unpolished with original patina.***Note: view my two previous items to see other corners and get one idea as to how they may be used.
Measurements: 5" x 5 1/2" x 2"
Hand painted and gilded on all sides with different scenes from 19th century China. This decorative box has a bit of everything: gorgeous kimonos, tea houses, fierce horses and horsemen....
With original escutcheon plate, but no key.
Also with original surface - some of the lacquer has been scuffed over the years, but all of the color and design is clear and bright.
Measurements: 2 1/2" tall x 2 1/4" body circumference x 1 1/4" base circumference
With very little wear to the copper lustre glaze, even on the handle. No chips, hairlines, or repairs.
But, the best detail about this little pitcher, is the underwater setting with plants, waves and a pair of beautifully detailed fish.
Made in England (signed Lancaster,Ltd) at the beginning of the 20th century.
