From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a stunning Early American classical carved mahogany sofa, Philadelphia School circa 1815-1825. With wonderful clean lines, masculine yet very elegant, and with a fantastic grain/burl to the wood, this is a great example of early American craftsmanship from the early days of this then, still rather young country. Upholstery is new of course, executed in a red background with golden starburst motifs that really make the piece "pop," but does so in a...

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...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a nice set of vintage American nightstands dating from the 1950's, constructed of solid hardwood with Carpathian Elm burl veneers.

Not much is known about the Bethlehem Furniture Manufacturing Corp. of Red Lion Pennsylvania that crafted this set, but they were apparently a small niche manufacturer active from the late 19th century up until the mid 20th century. This particular set was acquired new in the 1950's, and we acquired it from the ori...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a lovely hand-embellished serigraph by Janet Treby. Hand-embellished serigraphs are different from standard serigraphs in that hand-embellished serigraphs have actually been over-painted by the artist, and so they have the texture of an original. The artist accentuates details here and there, adds coloration, adds minute touches etc, so that in a sense, each hand-embellished piece becomes a "quasi-original," as the nature of the embellishment on suc...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, an early Tomasz Rut original oil on canvas masterpiece titled "Celesta," widely regarded as one of his top paintings of all time.

We were fortunate to meet Tomasz in the early 1990's when he was nary as famous as he is now, and were doubly fortunate to subsequently acquire two of his early original works, both of which are now considered to be two of the best he has ever created. Literally taken off Tomasz's studio wall shortly after he fini...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a stunning and massive alto-relief sculpture in bonded sand by American contemporary art legend Bill Mack.

For those who have followed the American Contemporary Art Movement over the last 20 years or so, Bill Mack needs no introduction. For those unfamiliar with his work, Bill Mack sculpts in what is referred to as “alto-relief,” which is a variation of bas-relief but incorporates even much greater depth and three dimensionality with portion...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, an elegant Haviland porcelain soup tureen, late 19th century circa 1888-1896, decorated with floating flowers in “Indian purple,” with molded floral applique and a generous use of gilding.

The history of Haviland porcelain is a very interesting story of American entrepreneurship, sibling rivalry, and French protest....We encourage our clientele to read about this fascinating history on the web. Many people mistakenly assume that Haviland w...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a fine dore bronze wall sconce, late 19th to early 20th century, fully gilded with four separate candlestick holders cast in floral motif. We are not positive whether this is French fin de siecle, or American Art Nouveau circa 1905-1915, but in any event an elegant piece. We probably didn’t do this piece proper justice in the way we photographed it, but at night with 4 candles aflame, it is a very striking and evocative piece.

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a very fine example of late 19th - early 20th century intaglio cut crystal, depicting a floral wreath on one side with floating flowers on the other side, “jeweled beveling” to the rim and foot, and all very well-cut and elegantly made. A nice addition for fin de siecle crystal and glassworks collectors. This piece is actually a lot prettier than our pictures seem to capture: We find crystal pieces like this very difficult to photograph well.

Conza, originally from Arequipa Peru, has had his work exhibited nationally and internationally. Painting in the realism style – sometimes referred to as “New Realism” – he usually paints in only natural sunlight, and the way he captures the play of light on his subjects is a...

From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a very good and sizeable pastel impressionist piece by Luis Bodes of Alhambra Spain, depicting two couples in a forest landscape. Executed in earthy tones of various greens, browns, rust, straw color, taupe and white, this piece has a natural tranquility to it we felt was universally appealing.

Those who understand painting well, and in particular, those who appreciate the limitations of working in pastel, are familiar with the challenges in ac...

Executed in a warm earth tone palette of various browns, sea-green, pale yellow, pale orange, and white, depicting crashing waves upon a beach at sunset with gulls in the foreground, this is a very nicely painted and evocative piece.

Giron is apparently not well-known yet beyond the Miraflores / Lima art circle, but this could change...

People generally familiar with Varga crystal know it as a high-end manufacturer of crystal stemware: Wine glasses, goblets, champagne glasses and the like, handcrafted in Budapest Hungary by four generations of specialist engravers practicing the copper and diamond wheel technique. But what most people do not know, is that before Varga focused their production in this highly commercialized secto...
