The show season is starting again, with our first show this week in Redondo Beach, CA, July 29-31, 2011. Since I will have less time to write about the interesting things happening in the antiques world, I will be posting new blog entries once or twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. If you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so look for a new one the following Monday.
The Redondo Beach Antiques Show isn’t big. It’s more like a boutique show — small, but high quality. I’d like to think I’m one of the high quality dealers who will be exhibiting there. The show opens to the public this Friday at 11 AM, and continues until 5 PM on Sunday. It’s surely worth a visit if you live anywhere in the greater Los Angeles area.
I’ve spent the last several months scouring the country and the world buying some extraordinary antiques. I’ll have them on exhibit for the first time at the Redondo Beach show this weekend.
Tops in the lamp category is a really fine Tiffany 20″ diameter Arrowroot table lamp, with great color. In addition, I’m bringing a great assortment of fresh to the market Tiffany, Handel and Pairpoint puffy lamps.
In American glass, I’m bringing some great items, including a fabulous Tiffany Studios Favrile Agate vase — very rare and very fine.
For French glass, I’m bringing fabulous Daum Nancy and Gallé vases, including two exceptional Daum examples with very rare and sophisticated mushroom decoration.
In addition, I’ll have the usual fabulous assortment of original Louis Icart etchings, great American art pottery with fine examples by George Ohr, Van Briggle and Rookwood.
Make the time to visit me at the show, and I’ll show you some great antiques that you’ll love.Check out my new acquisitions. I just listed a very rare Louis Icart etching, entitled “Miss America”, plus a gorgeous Daum Nancy pink floral vase; a rare Tiffany Studios desk lamp in the Spanish pattern; several fine Daum vases; a Daum lamp; several Galle vases; and several more Tiffany Favrile vases. Soon I’ll be listing a wonderful Tiffany Studios 7-light lily lamp with beautiful shades and a fine patina. Also coming soon will be several wonderful European ceramic items by Clement Massier, Zsolnay and Amphora. Here’s the link. chasenantiques.com
