I have been lucky to have access to a local auction house, Atlanta Auction Company, just a few miles from my home. Always a great selection and plenty of merchandise for everyone who attends to go home with treasure.
One of my first wins this past weekend was this pair of vintage hat boxes.
They both have the typical edge separations that come with age, but the cabbage roses illustrations are just to faboosh to toss out. I have them priced to steal and they will make a marvelous decorative element for someone.
Hiding inside one of the hat boxes were these vintage, drapery pulls. Pretty green and red flowers, these are such sweet little touches for drapes.
Be still my heart, antique flow blue pieces always get my heart racing and this gorgeous platter was an auction win.
When I lived in the midwest, I couldn't keep salt glazed pitchers like this in my booth. They always flew out the door. This beautiful bad boy has a chip on the other side but I would use it to serve crusty loaves of French/Italian bread over the holidays.
I adore chairs, the older the better. My first love are Windsors but this gorgeous bentwood with original caned seat is a beauty. Right now, it's in my home and I may have a little difficulty putting it in my booth.
Another auction win, a gorgeous Victorian, Eastlake influence, quilt/blanket rack. You don't come across these often. This will also be in my Victorian booth.
Lovely antique 19th century American Oil Painting on canvas--luminist landscape scene of a moonlit, winter’s night. Church, stone bridge, home with smoke lifting out of chimney. Possibly Hudson River School. Artist initials at lower right hand corner: RDM. Painting in original antique frame. Needs some minor restoration but it is a beauty.
Crazy about the gorgeous victorian frame and so was the artist. The floral still life is oil painted on canvas dated 1978 and the artist must have loved the frame too. I will remove the painting and sell it but keep the frame.
Sold a piece of furniture so I brought out the old desk, Navajo blanket and vintage lamps.
Can't believe this week is almost over. I thought I would have this post up on Monday and here it is Thursday and I'm still playing catch up. Wishing everyone a gentle evening. Sea Witch.
