This wonderful wooden box is fitted with a lid trimmed in sterling silver and topped with an antique Chancay animal figural textile fragment under glass. The box is carved from a single piece of Andean hardwood – possibly mahogany – and measures 2 x 2 x 1 7/8 inches tall. The hand hammered silver on the rim of the lid is unmarked, but surely sterling or close to it...

Superb Art Deco silver case for holding calling cards or ivory note cards - or one collector told me it was a match holder. It has a ring that would allow it to hang from a chain or chatelaine.

Engraved on the front with the date 1918; on the back with initials AEM. Measures 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches and 1/4-inch thick. Excellent condition.

This is an Antique Candle Snuffer Set. It is made of a white porcelain with hand painted cobalt blue and gold decoration. Flow blue style design. Lovely leaves and shells in the design and the handles of the snuffers are butterflies! I believe this dates from no later than mid-1800s, and probably much earlier.

The condition of the paint is remarkable – almost totally intact. One of the snuffer rests has been broken and repaired long ago...

Very nice small handcrafted antique 19th century Koran box made of a silver bronze (or brass?) material with black niello enamel and applied metal decoration and gold overlay. The lid is hinged at the top – the hinge pin has corroded and needs to be replaced. Measures about 2-3/4 x 1-7/8 x 3/8 inches. Definitely from the Middle-East and possibly Persian in origin. Great old piece

This is a fantastic Scandinavian sterling silver tea strainer that is from around 1900 (time period 1890-1920, I think). This is a relatively heavy piece (1.8 Troy ounces/56 grams) and it is profusely decorated. The applied, cast handle has a superb two-sided image of a Dutch lady holding a basket. The wide rim has foliate scrolls all over. The bowl is undecorated.

There are four hallmarks, that are located on the rim...

This little pitcher or jug has a wonderful bathing beauty climbing up the side. It is a beautifully crafted piece from around the turn of the last century. It is made of a thin pottery and marked with a number “8761 III.” There are no chips or cracks to the pitcher body, but the fragile lady handle is crazed and appears to have several hairline cracks around the arms (see photo). None of the cracks are separating the ceramic, however, and appear to be tight hairlines rather than breaks...
