An unusual item...a portion of a birthday or other festive cake on a plate, make of some kind of ceramic material, hand painted very realistically and capable of "fool the eye" (trompe l'oeil), painted in colors reminiscent of the colors used by famous contemporary artist Wayne Thiebaud. Measurements are approximately 8 1/2" across the plate, by 8" in height. The artist has hand signed her name on the bottom of the plate, in black marker...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1950 item #1421038 (stock #JB05584)
This is a larger than typically seen watercolor of roses, in the style prevalent around the turn of the century. The work is signed at lower right corner "E. J. Fischer". Measurements are 20" by 29" and 25" by 34" in the white wood frame. There is a listing for an artist in Denmark by that name but I believe this to be an American work and unrelated to the European artist. Condition is excellent. Found in Southern California...

The artist signed at lower right and dated the work 1949. The medium appears to be charcoal or soft pencil on paper, with a bit of brown color included.

Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was an important American artist, illustrator and writer, the works of whom can sell into the hundreds of thousands of dollars at major auctions. Originally from the Northeast, Kent traveled widely, especially in the Canadian Arctic, Greenland, Alaska, southern Patagonia in South America, and Europe, painting striking works in a unique style that place him among the earliest American modernists. He illustrated books, some of which he also wrote...

Fine etching of windmills in a landscape in a brownish-black ink, 9" by 11" (14 1/2" by 16 3/4`" framed), pencil signed at lower right by listed artist DIRK BAKSTEEN (1886-1971). The quality of the work is excellent, reminding the viewer of Rembrandt and other better known artists, though Baksteen is a somewhat obscure figure today. Born in Rotterdam and educated in art there at the academy, by 1912 he was in Mol, Belgium, becoming part of the "School of Mol" landscape artists...

Watercolor painting of roses in a pitcher, candlesticks and furniture completing the arrangement, an interesting patterned light from the window panes streaming in at an angle, signed at lower right by contemporary artist "T. Williams" and dated 1998. The work measures 20 1/4" by 27" (31" by 38" in wood framing). This is extremely clean and fresh and ready for display. I do not have a handle at this time on the identity of the artist, but the work was purchased in San Diego.
All Items : Fine Art : Drawings : Pre 1900 item #1421022 (stock #JB03435)
This is a charcoal with white highlights fine original drawing of a male head on a plinth, the head appearing as would a Greek or Roman marble sculpture. The work, 16 1/4" by 12" (22" by 18" framed), is signed at bottom by the Austrian artist RUDOLF ZELENKA (1875-1938) and is dated nearby 1894. The drawing would likely be an academic study by the artist at age 19, while receiving art education...
All Items : Fine Art : Mixed Media : Pre 1950 item #1421016 (stock #JB03145)
Gouache and watercolor on paper drawing, 11" by 8 1/2", in metal framing, no glass, signed at bottom right possibly "LEE" and perhaps a date "41" or "47" after that. The framing was done in the Seattle area (see sticker), and putting the style together with that framing information, I feel that perhaps this might be by an artist working in the Mark Tobey school in the Northwest, but this is speculation. The work certainly resembles Mark Tobey's work in many respects...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1920 item #1421009 (stock #JB03178)
This is a very nicely done watercolor painting of a young woman in a flowered hat, holding more roses in her hands, executed in the style of the noted illustrator and artist Harrison Fisher (1875-1934). The work, 10 3/4" by 8 3/4" (16 1/4" by 14 1/2" framed) likely dates to about 1905 or 1910. It is laid down on a card and the mat is laid over that. I have peeked underneath and do not see any evidence of a signature. A fine addition to a lady's dressing area. Condition is very good...

Old oil on canvas painting of light violet colored flowers in a yellow ceramic vessel, 13 1/2" by 17" (16 1/2" by 20" framed), signed at lower right corner with what appears as "M. Lagenbrucke" or similar, and dated adjacent 1924. I have looked for an artist by this name and to date have not found any information. He/she was talented and created an attractive work. In 90 years it has acquired considerable grime, and the surface is uneven and bearing hairline cracks in certain areas...

Lovely bright regal foil metallic colors, exquisitely and expertly painted in enamels, you see the photos taken with and without the flash. Made in France in about 1890, in very good antique condition without any cracks, breaks or repairs. The painting itself measures about 3" x 4", set onto red velvet and then put into this more contemporary 'old world' style wooden frame probably from 1950s, that is a nice compliment to the painting. Cute scene of a bar winch holding a jug of wine being "man...

All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Oil : N. America : American : Pre 1970 item #1420914 (stock #JB03018)
This is a marriage of a circa 1880 gold American Victorian frame with distinctive and unusual diamond patterns in the gilt, the frame rabbet 14" by 18", the framed item total 19 1/2" by 23", a mid 20th century still life signed "Olenick" set into it. It makes for an interesting combination but doesn't have to necessarily stay that way. The antique frame itself is very attractive and could potentially house any number of 19th century paintings. There is some wear on the frame especially at rig...
