This fine bronze of a young lady is an Art Nouveau gem by celebrated French sculptor Henri Godet (1863-1937) who exhibited regularly at the Salon des Artistes Francais between 1886 - 1913. The young girl is modeled in fine fashion of the day, gazing to her left. Her hair and the flowers on her dress complement each other. Godet is well known for different treatments of women, often enveloped in flowers. The beautiful sculpture rests atop a rouge griotte waisted marble socle.

This ebullient pink ground Bristol glass vase is painted with gorgeous white lilies accented with green leaves and violet flowers. The opposite space is decorated with a smaller version of the main design. The pedestal foot is gilded; the rim is jeweled in gold with white daubs.

Bristol glass was popular during the late 19th century, and we date this vase to circa 1880. Pink is a rarer and coveted color - one at which an avid collector should jump.

The vibrance and vivi...

These antique cast iron bookends depict a theme much beloved throughout the 19th C of the thankful harvesters. They are cast iron with gilt finish. The backs are quite smooth indicating the high quality craftsmanship of the bookends. 4 1/2" x 4 5/8". The condition is very good to excellent with patina expected with such age. Although unmarked, Verona Steel Casting Company is known to have made these bookends which I would date to C. 1910/20. It is very unusual to find these bookends with nearly ...

This fantastic metal advertising sign for Grapette soft drink is among its earliest productions if not the first, alone making it a very desirable collector's item. But the fact that it is so large and decorative gives it extra oomph - especially for that holy of holies - the man cave.

This advertising sign is in exceptional condition considering its past life as an advertisement. It has nail holes at the outer rim on the top and the bottom. Otherwise it is fine shape with minimal o...

Early 19th Century Pennsylvania German Hand Colored Birth Baptism Taufscheine/Fraktur, Framed

A wonderful hand colored Pennsylvania German fraktur or Taufscheine from Berks county. I believe that the subject is Jeremias Keber born or baptized October 30, 1825.

The certificate is hand colored in vivid reds, greens, yellows, depicting angels, birds and cherubim. It has a joyful antique disposition. It is an earlier example of the art form which began after the Revolution ...

An exceptional and rare cameo glass bride basket on quadruple silver plate stand. The rose colored cameo is striking and as fresh today as it was c. 1880 when it was first created. The glass was produced by Mt Washington while the silverplate was produced by Pairpoint and is so marked. The basket handle uses a branch and leaf motif with the latter being applied over the former. The basket well is reticulated, the base having swirls and leaves, all standing on 4 feet. Do not overlook the wave for...

Champleve vessels bring so much vibrant color into any space that it is a wonder more people have not incorporated them into their decors. This incense burner bursts with life, showing off its vivid flowers and scrolls to the observer's delight. It is tripodal with a broad bowl having two attached strap handles with suspended rings. The bowl is crowned with two covers, the top most of which is pierced brass. Though 20th century, its makers preserve a craft from more ancient times.

We like to keep plenty of blue transferware on hand because its lilting vibrance brings cheer to any room in which it is placed. This Staffordshire pitcher was made by Joseph Clementson in the Lucerne pattern from 1839-1864. It is a paneled hexagonal vessel decorated in the round and having a decorated foot. The angular handle is applied. The underside bears the backstamp of Lucerne JC Granite Ware.

Condition This pitcher is in excellent antique condition. It does have very minor p...

When we say that these candelabra are "le fin de siecle" we are referring to more than their late 19th century manufacture. They are superb example of Baroque style lighting which befits a place begging for a fine appointment. Why are we using French to describe these Italian cast brass masterpieces which must surely be one of a kind?

The candelabra have an architectural solidity with the square feet supporting floral faced blocks which frame a flower and scrolling vine motif. Above...

Although this vase is not terribly old, it emulates some of the qualities and characteristics often found on Chinese Republic period vases. The hanging pendants from the stylized ruyi around the upper neck and the high quality portraiture of the people are two such examples. The faces are carefully painted with faint toning to provide facial complexion. The robes have nice folds and drapery with one having fabric designs. The collar around the man has detail and his robe has nice shading and a l...

This large and lovely glass Tam-O-Shanter lamp shade is a beauty to behold. Its colors glimmer amber in the right lighting, but may often appear a rich ruby red. The waisted top rise to a trumpet opening with ruffled rim.

This shade a little difficult to date, but I would conservatively estimate mid to late 20th C. Although it is unmarked, in consultation with my glass expert, we both believe that Fenton is the most likely maker.

The fitter is 9 3/4" diameter. Conditio...

We keep bragging about Lexington's furniture from its Victorian Sampler and Mansion lines, but can you blame us? The quarter sawed red oak, the applied carvings and scrolls, the egg and dart carvings, the shaped top, and so much more draw your attention to its beauty as to the warm glow of a setting sun. The dresser is generously sized with enough storage for two people. The mirror is large with beveled glass. The center cupboard conceals 2 large drawers for larger or awkward items.

This hard-to-find gem by Fenton immediately caught my eye with its gorgeous rose peachblow colors on white but whose actual designation is Blue Burmese. The vase form is known as Trillium. Its ruffled rim evokes the charm of Victorian grace, even though it is of much more recent vintage. It is in superb condition, and retains its original sticker. Of special note to collectors, most of these vases were painted. This one is not, a choice I find considerably more attractive.

Ethan Allen has earned a loyal following owing to the high quality of its construction and the endurability of its designs. These medallion back fauteuil chairs are generously upholstered with an ecru ground fabric with gold leafy branches and shells. The color is subtle and versatile with so many color schemes. The exposed wood on the arms and legs are carved with complementary motifs. The fluted Sheraton styles legs add to the warmth of the design.
