From literature and photos, when one thinks of New England, one of the first images that comes to mind is the church in the village, clean, crisp, and making a great presence. This either print or photo shows a well built 2 story church with a great steeple and weathervane. The winter skies are made even more somber with the black and white format and the stark tree in the foreground. This is one very interesting image and would be considered classic New England. The frame is a black molded type that would be expected on this era. Ready to hang and use today.
These two colorful fellows are in fine shape and display a multi color scheme of blue, red, green and orange. Both are shaped in a bird form and have a nice pearl luster sheen with some wear from use. Both are marked Japan on bottom. These are just plain cute and if you are redoing a retro room, these would be great additions for actual use.
A well painted scene of trees and mountains signed indistinctly possibly an A over an M but the painter is unknown the painting surfaced in an old Knoxville Tennessee family estate.
Hand Made 4in ; crock lid w/ Knob, what a find if you have a base
Its cold outside, and the figurine is dressed in a warm coat, pink boots, and is shown in a hat above blonde hair and a striped scarf on her right arm. There is one old repaired chip on the base, otherwise, even the paint is in great condition. The figure is fully decorated on the back side and there is no marking whatsoever, and this would date it to prior to 1891.
An attractive pendant with all round stones having illusion backs in the center of the front drops the necklace would look great with a solid colored background. There is wear to the chain but the rhinestones are very lustrous and reflective on the surface. This would be a great necklace to wear out to the retro nightclub.
A classic signet ring in yellow gold that is almost flat on top. The sides have beautiful swirls and the detail is quite pretty.
This botanical print of the Mock Orange is also labeled with the scientific name. The white blossoms against the green leaves is well detailed and the image would be perfect in a period 19th century recreated room.
1906 Paris Scene by W. G. Reindel; This is a very misty scene of Paris with a horse drawn carriage transporting a lady in a long white dress and hat along a city street. People walk along a street in front of a very large column building with an iron fence in front. Trees and other buildings are in the background. The oil on canvas is signed and dated lower left. The frame is a custom frame made in Paris and would easily classify as either Art Nouveau or Belle Epoque era. Each of the 4 sides has a womans face carved into the decoration and the frame alone would be of major interest. The painting has been cleaned and is in excellent condition.
The Augustus Mitchell series of maps shows detailed descriptions of each region showing railroads lakes and the borders were engraved as a flowering vine. The maps show a lack of modern growth.
