A spectacular converted to electric oil lamp with the palest blue, handpainted shade. Beautiful hanging crystal prisms and original brass, the electric was placed so it can be easily converted back to an oil lamp. Beautiful Victorian piece. Circa 1890s.
A pair of big, heavy cast bronze Victorian picture frames. I have a fondness for these and was delighted to win this bid.
Following the auction, I made a quick run to my local Goodwill to drop off some items and then see what was brought in by others.
Nice silverplated punch bowl ladle. Always a popular seller and this one is in beautiful condition.
Sweet little vintage, ironstone cream pitcher.
Great gangster era hat. Circa 1960s
A bag full of beautifully turned honey dippers. The wood is beautiful and make such pretty decorative elements.
And last but not least...that item that I was jonesing for from "The Vintage Styled Life" store in Duluth.
I don't usually indulge myself in items like this, but I have never come across a Victorian "castle-top" calling card case. As my business name says...I Need This, Antiques. I went back to Davina's lovely shop and purchased it.
It was a great weekend, really enjoyed the auction and will go again when they offer up an estate auction like this one. I hope every one has a terrific week. Blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch
