• French 19th Century Face Screens

      This rare pair dates to Louis Phillipe times. Charming country scene with turned wood handle.

    • How To Fill A Corner

      A corner fragment of an 18th century column. Acanthus leaf carving sporting bits of original paint and gilding. I had my French ebeniste add a solid top so this stunning piece could be mounted in a corner and used to display the treasure of your choice. When hung in a corner it projects 13" to the left, 14.5" to the right and is 15.5" in height. Additional shipping will apply depending on your address - email for a quote.

    • Sterling Silver Filigree Case

      Can you imagine the workmanship involved? I bought this from a dealer friend (Bernard) who has had it in his personal collection for 25 years. It's enchanting to hold. There is a hallmark but I haven't been able to identify it. Heavy in the hand. About 3.25" x 2.25". The inside was originally vermeil and bit's remain. What will you put inside? I envision love notes, a bird feather, a single perfect stone, a sprig of lavender......
