We offer an exceptional American Historical Staffordshire serving platter in the Virginia pattern made by James and Ralph Clews. The flow mulberry/black transfer platter has beaded scalloped edging with a rich wreath of leaves and flowers around the rim and cavetto.

A man carrying a load of firing wood followed by his faithful dog, a solitary cow standing near its barn in the background, a man leaving the side door of his house carrying a bucket, and a man and woman leaving the home in a sleigh carriage driven by two horses down a country road – all orchestrate to create the nostalgic beauty which Currier and Ives created as the nation attempted to forget the pains of the Civil War.

Undoubtedly a New England vignette, it resonates with Americ...

$385.00
DESCRIPTION: A classic and quite old pair of hand carved South American wood stirrups. The Guacho of Argentina, the Morochucos of Peru and the Hauso of Chile all preferred large wooden "shoes" for use as stirrups rather than the more prevalent iron stirrup. These stirrups cover the whole front of the foot, which can be an advantage when riding through tall brush. This pair has good age and obvious usage; we estimate them to date from the early 1800's. Each shoe is carved from a single piece...

Ambrose Hyppolyte Louis Garneray (1783 - 1857, France) produced a remarkable series of images of major ports of Europe and the United States beginning in the 1820s. He was commissioned by Louis XVIII of France to produce paintings of naval scenes. The aquatint etching we offer for sale is a member of the port series, most likely a second state production published c. 1835. It was probably originally published around 1820 or so. Garneray has depicted a scene of New Orleans with a steam and sail ...

S.B. Champlin Company Providence, RI 1872 - 1934

The men's watch chain or "Vest Chain" is typically much scarcer than the pocket watch itself. This is because by 1915, the watch was retired to storage and the chain “discarded”, thrown away, or women converted them to bracelets. This fine men’s vest chain presented was produced by the Champlin Co. in 1896, inventoried, and was never sold to the trade or Jeweler for sale. It is therefore, in pristine, new but old stock condit...
