This is a beautiful ivory iridescent glass pendant with gold-filled findings and chain. The surface is beautifully textured. This is possibly Czech or Bohemian, from the early 1900s. The glass ball is about 3/4” in diameter, the newer Sarah Coventry chain is about 20” long. Excellent condition, with just a bit of light wear to the iridescent finish, which adds interest to the pendant.
This is a super SEAL PLANTER or LAMP BASE in a Classic Arts & Crafts Matte Green Glaze. There is a hole in the snout/nose that was probably for making this into a lamp. I do not know who made this, possibly Francoma, but it is a really cool piece of art pottery. The base measures about 3 7/8” x 6 1/4”, and the seal is about 6 1/4” tall. One repair to the planter rim (see pic), otherwise very good condition – no other chips, cracks or repairs.

This is a great 1930s hand colored photo of Passengers on the Western Pacific Railroad Scenic Express in California. It is framed is an Arts & Crafts frame, which is probably earlier than the photo.

The frame is a true folk art or trench art gem, older than the photo, and made of pine with a dark stain. The photo is in excellent condition; the mat does have two s...

This is a beautifully hand wrought citrus or grapefruit spoon. The handle has a carefully crafted stalk of leaves and flowers, culminating in a pair of gilt chrysanthemums or poppies. There is also a bird halfway up the handle. The bowl of the spoon appears to have been applied to the handle and is itself decorated with a poppy floral motif with a little butterfly above the flower. This is unmarked and surely sterling silver (or similar silver content). About 5 1/2” long.

This is a Beautiful Pair of Hand Decorated Blown Glass Vases. Gorgeously decorated with swags and fleur d’lys in shades of blue, ochre, pink and gold, as well as applied glass dots (like moriage). We think these are either Bristol glass or Mount Washington glass, but cannot be sure. The one on the left is about 10 5/8 inches tall, while the one on the right a bit taller. Excellent condition – just a bit of gold loss on the rim – no chips or cracks. These are probably late-19th century...
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. There are no maker’s marks at all, but I bel...

This is a lovely ceramic basket in a pale green luster. It has a cute little putto on one side and a spray of carnations on the other. The decorations are decals, with hand painted gold accents around the cherub. The basket has a highly textured, woodland design. I believe this is 19th century German, but it is not marked. The condition is excellent – no cracks or repairs – but the surface luster has some wear and there is one fleabite chip that is hardly noticeable. Measures about 4 1...

ALOHA! This is a beautiful Hula Dancer Doll with gorgeous black hair, pretty blue sleepy eyes and a bright crochet outfit in aqua and yellow with silver highlights. She is marked across her back: “Duchess Doll Corp. / Design Patent 1948.” She is quite properly dressed including a lei and wristlet. The hard plastic doll is about 7.5 inches tall, her head and arms are movable and in excellent condition.
This is a wonderful little doll from the 1930s or earlier. She looks like she is either a hula girl or an American Indian girl. She is made of bisque that is painted a dark red and has movable arms and legs. Her outfit is made of leather – that is why I think she may be Native American. Her features are hand painted, including a headband. The doll has no maker’s mark that I can find. She is about 3 inches tall and in excellent condition, although the leather is quite stiff.
