From our Chinese Blue and White Collection, a very fine Kangxi Period (1662-1722) porcelain plate with flower basket motif, the border executed with cash diaper design interspersed with four vignettes of floral sprigs. This piece is export ware but still arguably "Chinese taste" given the understated elegance and restraint from over-decoration. The genius of its appeal is in the wonderful balance between the painted areas and the areas of unpainted white reserve, which provide lovely contrast to...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, an original oil on canvas by artist David Schluss entitled "Falling in Love." Though we need to confirm this with Schluss's publisher, we believe that "Falling in Love" was never made into any giclees, serigraphs, or prints of any kind, and thus it's quite possible that this original is the only image of this particular work in existence. We invite Schluss devotees worldwide to inform us if they have ever seen this image before. It's believed to hav...

There are 24 different scenes; each...
