A classic signet ring in yellow gold that is almost flat on top. The sides have beautiful swirls and the detail is quite pretty.

Large flower pots such as this do not come along very often. The medium blue with the raised floral and fleur de lis design is well executed and certainly in good condition. In the center of the base of the pot is a drainage outlet. It would hold a very large plant.

This rosy cheeked Victorian bisque figure is of a young girl holding a book with gold decoration to the sides and ends of the pages under her right arm. The large bonnet has an inner liner of gold trimmed edges and she is wearing socks above blue slippers. The bow at her neck is charming and she is wearing glasses in her hair above her eyes. Two small nicks are on the top rim of the bonnet but they are barely noticeable. There is no makers mark but the piece is probably from Germany or France.
Of all pets, dogs are among the favorites for most people. The print shown here dates from the late 1800s and has excellent color of a dog running in air, so proudly with all 4 feet off the ground and a captured rabbit in its mouth returning to the family home with the parent and 4 sibling dogs looking out to greet the returning hunter. This image just exudes character and is a fun print to see. Hunters and certainly dog owners would just love this scene. The food in the bowl is certainly being neglected to observe the proud hunter running back with his latest catch. A large basket turned on its side makes no doubt a bed for the entire family.

The musical offerings in this book are divided into sections of Patriotic and National, School & College, Familiar, Devotion. A wonderful collection of late Victorian music that has become classic to us in the 21st century and still worth listening to today.
The Arabs gazing over the desert is a haunting view with a windstorm whirling giving an entire misty or dusty view. The watercolor has been Defoxed Deacitified and is now in a museum mounting. The watercolor would date to mid to late 19th century and is likely to be European or Mid-Eastern in origin.

The bronze decorations are very detailed and the stylized heads with rings in their mouths make for an almost 1920s theatrical appearance of this vase. The figures appear to be stylized European motifs and it almost appears to be art nouveau in feel.

A set of 4 volumns and all here, leather bound, this promises to be the latest translation from the Greek by the author. Published in 1824 in Boston by Treadwells Power Press, the 4 volumns are in good condition, certainly readable, and very useful to scholars.

This is an unusual variety of colors, textures and forms, from round turquoise beads to silver beads to brass ball beads to silver colored tubing and either brass or wood finished tubing, it is all here. Pure 1960s, interesting, heavy, and ready to wear except needing to be cleaned. The original clasp is very much intact and useable, the necklace is very noticeable and would work well with most any apparel.

A collector in the 1970s, purchased this painting from an estate in Massachutes and brought it to Tennessee. This oil on canvas is signed F. J. Flanagan, 08 in the lower right and other than heavy surface crazing with some rough cracking to the surface is apparantly in all original and good condition. The frame is the original, and the artist even experimented painting on the back side of the canvas. The scene is probably fall and the rust colored ground covering has a blue inlet or bay area with trees in the background. The scene is windswept and almost impressionistic. The image is almost haunting in beauty, no people, just the forces of nature. Mr. Flanagan is listed as being in the Marblehead, Mass., as well as Boston region and exhibited at the Boston Art Club and the Penn Academy of Fine Art as well as the Corcoran Gallery. He is shown as being active from 1897-1927.
