My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.
Happy New Year! I wish everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year, filled with stories of kindness and peace.
If you follow my blog, you know that the first of five shows in a row will start in Miami on January 24th. I’m bringing lots of fresh items, many from private estates, but I have no problem selling anything prior. I’m a mercenary, so if you see something you like, please let me know and it’s yours, for the right price! 🙂 Call 516-922-2090, or send an email by clicking here, if you’re looking for something specific. (Remember to answer the simple anti-spam question at the bottom of the form or your email will not be sent.)I’ve been buying some lovely KPM plaques. The example above is of a Gypsy child, beautifully painted. It’s fairly large, 11″ x 8½”, unframed, and in excellent original condition. People I’ve spoken to are split 60 girl/40 boy. If you absolutely know, please contact me, because I don’t have the answer. Most KPM plaques are copies of famous paintings in museums, so the answer is surely out there. How about a Roycroft rarity? Dard Hunter-designed, mixed metal, hand-chased, 8″ tall, signed Roycroft. Not what you’d expect to find at Chasen Antiques, except for the quality. Amphora portrait vases is an area where I’ve gotten lucky. I have several fine examples including the beauty pictured above, fresh out of an important collection.
Monday’s post will be a fascinating look at what remains of Louis C. Tiffany’s home, Laurelton Hall. You won’t want to miss it. In the meantime, please check my website. I think you’ll like what you see.
