Post World War II in Southeastern Asia brought in some very interesting jewelry designs. With the movie and play, Anna and the King, Siam became a point of study. The country sent over some uniquely enameled designs that today are being copied for modern users. This is an authentic pin and not a reproduction, the stylized dragon has very well detailed scales, and a red center with a town of temples and pagodas above, the edging of the piece is in both a blue and green enamel and the dragon is holding what appears to be a lantern in the mouth. Very detailed and excellent condition.
Someone has made a medieval style tumbler that is a really rich, transparent blue colored glass. The tumber has lots of good old bubbles and waves in it and has 4 blown out figures, 2 of which are squares and two of which are diamond shapes with the tin jacket cut out and applied around the glassware. When looking at this piece, you think of knights of old and it certainly does have a Pre-Raphaelite look to it.
If you have a 4in Bowl or dish and need a top this is for you.
Victorian Gentleman enjoyed getting dressed with a stick pin in the tie or cravat as it was called. The stick pin featured here shows a wish bone, the symbol of good luck and has what appears to be a faux smoky topaz in a bezel mounting that insures it should have another 100 years of use. The condition is pretty good for the yellow gold filled surface, there is some wear, but it is certainly useable and one would have to look very close to see any significant surface damage. With a business suit, this would look great on a solid colored tie. Regis would love this.
This book has many recipes and tells all about what types of wines go with what foods. This book is in good condition and has 29 pages. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.
This antique map of Watertown Connecticut shows specific residences and businesses along major streets. Their identifications were by subscription and are of major interest to residents and their descendants today.
An essential piece of tableware during the 19th century. This salt cellar is a very fine example of Victorian utilitarian glass. A very few chips along the edge give testimony to the daily use of this piece. The pattern appears to be very optically oriented and the form is an urn shape. The piece has a few nics to the rim.
The Colton map series is regarded as some of the most accurate of American maps of the world. They were colored in borders of countries and the historical changes of boundaries make these interesting to viewers today.
A well decorated German sugar bowl with green leaf/garland border having rich colors that are very close to Dresden China and would work with classical motif German China.
