Tom Detlef is the artist of this lushly colored colonial revival room showing a couple at a piano. The Frame is the original and there does not appear to be anything done to this print.
The detail in this landscape with a small figure holding a fishing rod under a wooden bridge makes this lush setting a desirable subject and the viewer is constantly seeing some new natural figure when gazing into the distance. The painting has been cleaned and relined. Very little restoration work was needed and the feeling one gets from this view is of tranquility. Huge stone columns form supports for the bridge at ends of the stream, the trees set against the sky that is somewhat dark, and the effect of light in this makes for a very dramatic but tranquil image.
Stylish black purse with an ornate plastic floral decorated handle and a synthetic but knitted material body in excellent shape. Small black, red and blue change purse was found inside and this is included. Condition is quite good with no tears or other damage and clasp is in fine working order. The knitted rows of stylized flowers and floral Bakelite handle is really indicative of the 1930s and 40s. Excellent condition, authentic, and ready to take out for the evening.
This is one of the more unusual patterns with a stork. It is original, authentic and old carnival glass with no chips cracks or problems. The color is highly lustrous and unusually brilliant.

After attending the 1959 Poultry Show in Knoxville Tennessee Mr. Sublett went home and did a series of Roosters that were prize winners. He donated the shown work to a charity auction and the estate of the original owner now offers this work for sale. The painting is in excellent condition, is an oil and possibly acrylic mix on artist board and is in a red painted frame designed by the artist.
The coldness of winter is felt in this Russian image of two travelers in a sleigh with a single horse pulling them along a figure along the road stops with his hat off in his right hand perhaps asking for assistance. The bare birch trees simply make the cold more painful and the color of the sky makes one hope for spring. This was purchased in Maine where there is a large Russian community and the age is uncertain but would appear from style and subject to be in mid 20th century. The colorful decoration on the back of the sleigh adds a nice touch.
