T1-1.jpgHere is a legitimate "once in a lifetime" opportunity to own an authentic Faberge treasure.  Faberge items were created for the wealthy and well to do inside Czarists Russia.  In keeping with this theme, they created this exceptional Butler's or Servants Bell.  These were used throughout the mansion to "ring" for service when needed.  They used a low voltage wire system and probably dates to around 1900.  The Bell is a press button located in the center.  It is made of gem quality Jade with we believe to be a Moonstone button.  It is surrounded with white and yellow Gold.  The white Gold is set with approximately 52 tiny Mine Cut Diamonds.  The round ball feet are yellow Gold.  The Gold band around the button contains Faberge Hallmarks.  It measures 2 3/16 th. inches long, 1 3/8th. inches wide and stands 1 inch tall.  It is in excellent condition with a small dent on one of the ball feet.  It comes complete with the original presentation case that is also appropriately signed by Faberge.  The above information is our opinion, as well as the consignor's.  Please take the time to come in and inspect the piece for yourself. May be your only chance at an authentic Faberge Piece.

T2-1.jpg

Here is an opportunity to own a 200 year old Windsor Rocking Chair dating from 1780 to about 1830. This example has the desirable Comb Back feature and the Continuous Arm and back.  The arm rests are one single piece of oak that has been bent in several different directions.  The chair has 13 splats supporting the arms and making up the back.  Five of which extend up creating the Comb.  All of the splats pass completely through the arms and back, a construction detail that provides both strength and beauty.  Chairs of this vintage are considerably smaller that you would find today.  It stands 41 inches tall to the comb, 16 inches to the seat and only 14 inches wider between the handle supports.  It is in remarkable condition, just as tight ans sturdy as the day it was made.  Don't miss your chance to own a valuable antique chair.  

If the Windsor chair developed in England, its form was certainly perfected in America. Colonial craftsmen eliminated the central splat featured in the original chair's back. They also slenderized the splats and legs, and developed, for some models, the "continuous arm" - that is, the chair arms and back rim are made of a single, bent piece of wood. These alterations simultaneously strengthened the chair while giving it a light, airy appearance.

Windsors come in a variety of styles, including armchairs, side chairs, rockers, and - as many students of a certain age remember - writing chairs. There are even Windsor settees. The spindled backs come in several heights and shapes too, and Windsor chairs are usually identified by that feature: "low back," "comb back," "bow back," for example. But the best-known, the version that seems to be the quintessential Windsor, is the sack-back or hoop-back. This is usually an armchair with a semi-circular back. These are the ones that often appear in portraits of prominent colonial figures and, as the American Revolution approached, members of the Second Continental Congress. In fact, cabinetmaker Francis Trumble made more than a hundred of them for the Philadelphia State House in the 1770s where the Declaration of Independence was drafted.

Windsor chairs were made of a combination of cheaper woods: hickory - an especially pliable wood - for the spindles; pine for the seat; maple, ash, or oak for other components.

T3-1.jpgWe believe this is an authentic Vintage Galle Cameo Glass vase. The consignor believes it is authentic and we have found no reason to dispute it. We have asked two other people whose knowledge we trust and they both agreed it seems to be authentic. This is made in France at the Galle factory. This vase has gently curving sides with a white portion in the center. It is a white yellowish color and the flowers are brown and lavender in color. The flowers are raised and glossy and the background is a matte finish. French Galle glass is beautiful and like no other making it very easy to distinguish. This vase is 9 inches tall and in excellent condition.

T9-1.jpgThis is a silver Antique Wine Taster with an authentic silver "8 Reales Coin" dated 1633 used as the bottom of the Cup. This coin is the original Pirates Coin seen in Pirate stories. It has grid marks on it, and when broken could be used to make change, hence the term "Pieces of Eight" or part of an 8  Reales coin..Also the expression "Two Bits" or 25 cents, would be a quarter of the coin. Enough history, it is a great historical coin, but the beauty of the Cup is the workmanship needed to make the whole object.  Near the coin is a small Hallmark that looks like MP. We believe it was assembled around 1880. This is a great double collectible appealing to both silver and coin collectors. Bet you have never seen another one! It measures 3.38 inches wide and 1.25 inches tall. In very good condition. Be sure to come and see this one.

T91-1.jpgThis is a very old hand made wooden slat Laundry Basket. My research tells me these are quite scarce and hard to find. Each of the slats gently curves outward and are retained by a heavy metal wire and coiled spacers. This construction makes the basket remarkably flexible. The bottom is solid wood and there are 2 carry handles. It is in great condition. It measures 29 inches long and 22 inches wide and about 10 inches tall.
