A large ceramic studio art vase by the renowned Clement Massier whose work with lustrous iridescent glazes still commands admiration today. This ceramic vase is decorated with mythological and fantasy creatures, inscribed on the surface, each of which alternates between stylized fleurs de lys. The glazes are deep red - perhaps burgundy - infused with coppery tones. The style anticipates the Art Deco era, and speaks to Clement's leadership in the decorative arts world.

The teapot is glazed with a yellow-maize ground. Condition is "As is" meaning that it has suffered damage in its 220 year life. The handle was cracked in 3 places and somewhat amateurishly repaired. The lid is damaged in two places - under the rim and inside lip, all of which we show in the pictures. The ...

While we have yet to identify the artist or the subject, we would contend that the work is first rate considering the mood captured by the painter. The man exudes a somewhat austere aristocratic brood, yet exudes the strengths of youth and ambition, a man ready to make his place in the world. We believe the work to be of the British school painted c. 1850 or earlier as suggested by the early Victorian shape of the seat rail. The clothing hearkens more to the earlier half of the century, as do...

A very fine Chinese lacquer urn covered with lid with finial. The body of the urn features 2 reserves of birds perched on flowering branches. Traditional Chinese motifs decorate bib and diaper.

A rare publicity photograph from Moon Over Miami (1941) starring Don Ameche, Betty Grable, and Robert Cummings, when Grable was near the height of her celebrity. She was internationally recognized as the pin-up girl of World War 2. The condition of the photograph is wanting with a couple of scratches on the left background. The photo is mounted on a now tattered matting but easily reversible. The inscription below the photograph claims that Betty Grable signed the pictures, but we cannot conf...
