This is a scarce large 31 by 23 inch map of what was called the great west in 1848 printed by Ensign and Thayer in New York and it is from around 1848.Condition is quite good for a map printed on a thin paper stock.There is a piece of paper missing in the border of Michigan and there is some wrinkling from being rolled up at one time. There is a small water stain below the border on the bottom right that would not show if this was matted. A rare map that I guarantee to be of the period.
This is a lovely gold and silver open work and engraved ring of European origin.The oval center stone,set in a yellow gold bezel is surrounded by 4 single cut Diamonds and numerous small faceted Rubies in a scrolling design. There are no markings on the shank. Ring size is 7 1/2 to 8 and the ring top is 7/8th by 1 inch. The ring sits nicely on the hand. We believe this to be a Victorian era ring.Purchased From a New Hampshire estate auction of people who traveled abroad.

This is a nice large 18 by 24 sight size oil on canvas by Paul Flegel a listed artist.It seems to be in its original frame which is 26 by 32.The painting is in great original condition. The carved wood 60's frame has a few chips in the thin gesso top coat.Flegel was known for his style of painting on the open canvas with a palette knife which is quite evident in this picture.From the few pictures of his we could find on line this seems to be a much better than normal example of his work...
