Pair of Petite Rookwood Pottery Arts & Crafts Vases 1 Sea Green & 1 Turquoise

Pair of Petite Rookwood Pottery Arts & Crafts Vases 1 Sea Green & 1 Turquoise

Wow! These are exceptional examples of Rookwood Arts and Craft Pottery. These two beautiful vases have been together for a long time, so we are selling them as a pair. One is in a sea green gloss glaze and date marked 1928 with form number 2963. This one is a long neck bottle shaped vase that is void of decoration letting its classic silhouette be the star. The second one has a turquoise matte glaze and is date marked 1922 with form number 2283. It has a bulbous urn shape with a band of incised geometric design around the lower third of its body. Both are in fabulous condition and will be lovely on a shelf or in a table-scape.

Rookwood Pottery was founded in 1880 by Maria Longworth Nichols and has the unique distinction of being the first manufacturing company in the United States founded by a female. It is also known for having many women artists on staff over its long lifespan. The name Rookwood was Maria’s brainchild after noticing the rooks, or crows, populating her father’s estate and combining that with “wood” for a nod to the fame Wedgwood wares. Maria ran the company for three years. Then in 1883, after she attained much success in earning medals for the company’s work, she turned over the management of and transferred her interest in the company to William W. Taylor. Under Taylors command the business went from a young award-winning pottery company to a thriving entity. It was a very successful operation over the following decades. But in 1941, after the Great Depression took its toll, Taylor closed-up shop. Until a brief few years later a group of investors bought the company and began production once again. The new Rookwood changed hands many times and even moved to a different state but could still never be the pottery it once was. They subsequently closed their doors for good in 1967.

Whether you are a collector of Arts and Crafts pottery or Rookwood in particular…or you just love beautiful things….you need to make this pair yours.

Mid Century Modern Enamel on Copper Tile Cityscape Wall Art Style of Judith Daner

Mid Century Modern Enamel on Copper Tile Cityscape Wall Art Style of Judith Daner

This piece has been one of my favorites for a long time. Unfortunately, I have no more room on my walls. It makes me sad. But my loss is your gain! This mid-century modern cityscape is stunning and although unsigned we believe it to be by Judith Daner. It is definitely in her style. It is comprised of five enamel on copper tiles mounted to a walnut frame. The copper tile is mounted first to hardboard and subsequently mounted floating in front of the walnut. The buildings are in vibrant colors of blue with black accents and the skies are golden with silver highlights. I can’t quite decide if this is a night view with a glowing moon or a daylight view with the sun reflecting off the windows.

Judith Daner was born in 1936 and grew up in New York but currently resides in Ashland, Mass. She received her BFA with top honors from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Plus, she studied at Parson’s School of Design and the Art Students League, both in New York. Judith has exhibited her work in galleries and museums nationally and at the Biennale Internationale in France. Her work is highly regarded and very collectable.

This enamel will be gorgeous no matter where it hangs…just make it yours!

Antique Terracotta Lifesize Sculpture of Squirrels by Leo Amaury & Stamped R D’Arly France

Antique Terracotta Lifesize Sculpture of Squirrels by Leo Amaury & Stamped R D’Arly France

This pair of jaunty squirrels caught my eye right away and I couldn’t pass them by. Now you have the opportunity to make them yours. They are signed by the artist, Leo Amaury. And, they are stamped on the bottom Terracuite R. D’Arly Made in France. I believe this is the company who created the pieces. I haven’t found a definitive answer to this. May just be the type of terracotta clay used? Or an import stamp? Anyway, this handsome squirrel sculpture is incredible! It was created in intricate detail and the lifelike pair look out upon you from their perch on a leaf adorned tree branch. It looks as if you just plucked the vignette straight from the forest to display in your home. Many of the Amaury pieces we found online are said to be Art Deco in style. I’m not sure I would call them Art Deco but from that era. I could not find much about Leo Amaury other than a birthdate of 1885 and different lovely examples of his work. I’m still looking. No matter. This piece is magnificent, and you should make it yours!

Art Nouveau Flemish Earthenware Three Handled Vase by Leo Maes Vereenooghe

Art Nouveau Flemish Earthenware Three Handled Vase by Leo Maes Vereenooghe

I fell in love with this pot immediately so snatched it up quickly. Then fell in love further after learning about its rich Flemish history. This three-handled Art Nouveau jug style vase is decorated with interesting figures and landscapes in the most beautiful blue, yellow, green, and brown polychrome glaze. It is signed by the artist, Leo Maes Vereenooghe, with his initials LMV applied on the side of the piece under its glaze as is standard. Not a lot of information on the artist’s life and background is available but he is known to have worked from around 1891-1909 at the renowned pottery workshop Maes in Torhout, Belgium. Potters, many of them famous, have worked in Torhout since the 18th century. These potters created a type of pottery, which features an applique folk-art style which reached its peak in the Art Nouveau period, that spread to the rest of Flanders and subsequently into Britain and North America. This earthenware vase is a large and beautiful example of that Flemish pottery. You must make it yours.

Antique Salmon Red Concrete Garden Urn Planter

Antique Salmon Red Concrete Garden Urn Planter

This incredible antique garden urn should be yours! Comprised of concrete and having an old and patinated salmon colored original paint finish, which we are assuming is to replicate terracotta. It has been provided with a center drain hole and originally came from a home in a prestigious housing development from the early 20th century. Its proportion and symmetry are outstanding, and it is adorned with a wonderful leaf style pattern. We know this would look fabulous outside, as was its intended use; however, I have used it in our showroom as a centerpiece on many a dining table and it is simply stunning. It has held everything from fruit to Christmas orbs and pinecones to poinsettias. You just need to let your imagination soar. But first, you need to make this beautiful urn and sample of early 20th century American architecture yours.

Large Framed Jimi Hendrix Panel Attributed to Jimi Hendrix Traveling Exhibit

Large Framed Jimi Hendrix Panel Attributed to Jimi Hendrix Traveling Exhibit

Whether you hang this in your living room, family room, music room, or man cave; and whichever side you use, it will be a show stopping statement! This fabulous graphic image of Jimi Hendrix, one of rock music’s all-time favorite icons, has been purported to being part of a traveling exhibit celebrating the life and times of Jimi. After being told the history and particulars of this panel I did an online search to verify and corroborate. I did find an article in Rolling Stone magazine dated February 18, 1993 titled Hendrix Traveling Exhibit to Tour U.S. It talks about the exhibit being a multimedia art show that successfully traveled across Europe in 1992 and would be opening at New York’s Ambassador Gallery with follow-up engagements in San Francisco, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Chicago, Boston, and Seattle; with possible tours in Japan, New Zealand, and Eastern Europe. It talks about the exhibit being unexpected by not displaying smashed guitars or tattered relics but showcasing 100 works ranging from psychedelic posters and candid photos to collages, computer-enhanced pieces and an interactive sound sculpture. Whether it was part of this exhibit or not…it is a fabulous graphic. Please know we have priced it for its intrinsic decorative value since we cannot definitively document it being from the traveling exhibit. You still need to make it yours!

Mid Century Credenza Dresser with Mirror and Hexagon Paneled Design

Mid Century Credenza Dresser with Mirror and Hexagon Paneled Design

We searched high and low both physically on this piece and on the internet to locate a maker or designer of this fabulous chest. We finally found it as attributed to Omega by Thomasville. We did not find the designer but even though, we are not deterred from deeming this credenza as a lovely piece of mid-century furniture which can border a bit on Campaign or Hollywood Regency style. It has lots of style and presence and is made very well. Comprised of what we feel is a light walnut stained ash. It has a pair of doors in the center which are flanked by two banks of three drawers each. The doors which are covered in a faux planked veneer, are adorned with elongated hexagon panels and are operated with brass key-style pulls and brass escutcheons. The drawers have no hardware; but are adorned with recesses at the top and bottom of each drawer front which act as the drawer pulls and, when stacked, form a hexagon shape where the drawers meet. This credenza does come with its large wonderful mirror that can be attached to the cabinet or hung on the wall and used alone separately from the cabinet. Plus, it can hang vertical or horizontal. How is that for versatile? This piece would make a gorgeous credenza in an entry or a dining room, as dresser in a bedroom, or wherever you may need beautiful and useful storage. Just make it yours!

1940’s Painting by Colorado Artist Herndon Davis of Industrial Interior

1940’s Painting by Colorado Artist Herndon Davis of Industrial Interior

This fabulous industrial style painting is by the celebrated Colorado artist, Herndon Davis. Davis is the infamous artist of the  Face on the Barroom Floor  at the Teller House in Central City, Colorado. This painting depicts a superb example of the 1940’s industrial style painting. It is extremely well done and shows the interior of an industrial workspace. We believe it to be a newspaper or printing business, but you may see something else entirely. It is done in the beautiful dense colors of that era blues and greens and orange and purple that are highlighted with touches of white and yellow. It is framed in a simple black frame which suits it, but we feel a more substantial frame would better accentuate the high quality and importance of this painting.

Herndon Davis, 1901-1962, was an American artist, journalist, illustrator, and painter who really wasn’t recognized in his lifetime and not until recently. He was born in Wynnewood, Oklahoma of rancher parents. At fourteen Davis moved himself to Kansas City, Missouri to take art lessons. He supported himself with unskilled labor jobs. From there he went to Chicago and apprenticed as an engraver and commercial artist. In 1920 he joined the army and was stationed in Denver. His love for Colorado and Denver must have begun at that time. But first he lived and worked in Washington DC, where he worked at the National War College creating maps of China and Japan, and New York City, where he attended the National Academy of Design and Art Students League of New York while working at the New York Herald Tribune, Washington Times-Herald and Washington Daily News. In 1936 he moved to Denver where he began to capture in paint and pencil notable people and landmarks of Denver and the west. Included in his subject matter were the notorious and the famous whether people or places. He is best known for his painting of the face of his wife on the barroom floor in Central City, Colorado. It was inspired by the poem The Face on the Barroom Floor and so it is titled. It wasn’t until after his death that friends were allowed to tell his beloved wife, Nita, was his model.

This is an important and incredible painting of 1940’s lifestyle. You need to make it yours!

Architectural Pottery of California

Vintage Mid Century Modern Architectural Pottery Monumental White Cylindrical Pot

Wow! How can something so simple be so completely wonderful and beautiful?! This is an iconic cylindrical planter by Architectural Pottery of California. In the most iconic color…white. It is monumental in size as was typical of their pots. I can’t tell you which of the wonderful designers who did designs for them did this particular pot. It could have been LaGardo Tackett or Malcolm Leland or David Cressey or John Follis or Rex Goode who all designed iconic monumental work for Architectural Pottery. Just one look at one of their pots and you know it. Almost every California mid-century modern home had one; especially if they were designed by John Lautner or Richard Neutra who used them in most of their modernist homes. Plus, well known mid-century photographer Julius Shulman featured Architectural Pottery’s products in almost every photo he took!

Architectural Pottery was founded by husband and wife Max (1911-2010) and Rita (1919-1999) Lawrence in 1950 after Rita saw the awesome potential of students’ designs at the California School of Art in Pasadena. These were students of LaGardo Tackett who carried out a class project to create designs to fill a void in the home accessories market. Architectural Pottery’s iconic designs were devoid of ornamentation and mostly monumental in scale using geometric forms like cylinders, cones, gourds, and totems. John Caldwell, a former employee of Architectural Pottery was known to say, “just about every significant architectural project of the 1950s had to have an Eames chair and an Architectural Pottery pot in it.” AP had to shut down in 1985 after a fire destroyed the Manhattan Beach manufacturing plant. In 1998 Vessel USA Inc. was founded to revive the beautiful planters and other ceramic designs and created their Architectural Pottery Collection. Never fear the new pots are clearly marked with Vessel USA Inc. so it is easy the tell the vintage from the new even if you couldn’t tell from their beautiful patina that only age and use can affect.

We know you have fallen in love with the simple form and gorgeous matte white glaze on this monumental pot just as we have. Make it yours!!

Vintage Set of 4 Ndebele Mapoto Beaded Aprons from South Africa Canvas Backed

Vintage Set of 4 Ndebele Mapoto Beaded Aprons from South Africa Canvas Backed

Oh, my goodness! I love these gorgeous Ndebele Mapoto beaded aprons from South Africa. They will make the most awesome wall décor! These are each beaded on canvas and not hide so dates them to later rather than earlier in the 20th century as does their color combinations. But when they are this beautifully done, I’m not sure their age matters. They are a fabulous piece of art no matter the timeframe. The bead colors range from light sky blue to deep cobalt blue with bright grass green, orange, black, white, and tan thrown in. They are breathtakingly intricate and beautiful, and their abstract designs are incredible. We  have priced these as a set of four but will consider selling them individually.

In general, the intricately beaded and colorful Mapoto beaded aprons are typically made and worn by women for ceremonial occasions. In some information I read the Mapoto is meant for a newlywed and the colors and patterns denote the joining of families with the two bottom flaps representing the two homes joining while the beaded fringe is the desire and  hope for children.

I can imagine these treasures hanging in a single line either horizontally or vertically. Or, maybe rather squared with two above two. How many ways can you imagine them displayed? You need to make them yours!

Modernist Navajo Native American Reclining Woman Ceramic Sculpture by Jack Black

Modernist Navajo Native American Reclining Woman Ceramic Sculpture by Jack Black

We fell in love with this fabulous modernist sculpture the minute we saw it. It is signed and dated by the artist Jack Black 1985. This beautiful Navajo Native American woman is portrayed relaxing and reclining with her long straight hair flowing over her shoulder and down her arm. The main body of the piece is glazed in gorgeous blue-green mottled glaze with the face, hands, and one foot left unglazed in the natural clay color, as is typical for the artist. Her hair is textured and glazed a light brown matte glaze. She is very striking and calls out for you to reach out and touch her.

Jack Black was a highly regarded sculpture artist and member of the Navajo tribe. He was born in Galveston, Texas but moved to Arizona opening a studio in Sedona in 1984. It was Black’s practice to sketch his ideas after observing and being inspired by the colors and peoples in the desert. He would then sculpt them in clay. Molds were made from that original and the figures cast in stoneware. Each piece was cleaned and detailed by hand making none identical. His figures are understated, timeless, beautiful, and wonderful to gaze upon. Jack Black passed in 2002.

No matter your design style you will love this ceramic sculpture. Make it yours!

In researching this egg warmer I did not find any others that were round. All the other I viewed were egg shaped.

It also has orbs as feet and as supports for attaching the container to its stand. It has hallmarks and pseudo hallmarks on is underside. They are: an A1 in an oval establishing amount of silver used; a crown in a shield, this one dates the piece to pre-1895; an owl in an oval; EP in a shield, denoting electroplating; and TL & EM in a quatrefoil the trademark for Latham & Morton silver plate pieces.

In 1914 under new ownership and management they began making crystal products including cut crystal and etched art glass. From that time forward Orrefors has excelled in all types of creative glass manufacture employing renowned artists and winning multiple awards. They continue production today primarily at their glassworks in Kosta using techniques developed in Småland. According to Orrefors official site no fewer than 15 people contribute to the production of a single piece of glass. It is no wonder Orrefors is a revered name among glass collectors worldwide.

Selection of Dansk Designs Teak Trays or Cutting Boards by Jens Quistgaard

Selection of Dansk Designs Teak Trays or Cutting Boards by Jens Quistgaard

Take your pick of these awesome examples of trays, or a couple could be cutting boards, from the wonderful design mind of Jens Quistgaard and made exquisitely by Dansk Designs. You may choose one and up to four as we have priced them separately. If you are interested in all four or a combination contact us for pricing. NOTE: TRAY #1 IS SOLD!

Jens Harald Quistgaard was an outstanding and prolific designer. Born April 23, 1919 and raised in Copenhagen he showed his talent early creating a workshop in his mother’s kitchen. He was trained in sculpture by his father, Harald Quistgaard, but furthered his artistic education at the technical school in Copenhagen. He designed for many different companies early in his career, but his big break came when he met Martha and Ted Nierenberg the founders of Dansk Designs. Jens helped them to create Dansk and became their primary and chief designer. He remained in that position designing hundreds of items and even the Nierenberg’s home until the early 1980s when he moved to Rome. He returned to Denmark around 1992 a renowned and award-winning designer continuing to work until just prior to his death in 2008

Dansk Designs, contrary to popular belief, is an American company not Danish. Founded in 1954 by Martha and Ted Nierenberg who traveled to Europe in search of new products to bring to the U.S. post war audience who were ready for a change from the formal lives they had been living and ready to embrace a more modern and simple way. The Scandinavian Modern Designs fit that bill perfectly. And the Nierenbergs engaged Jens Harald Quistgaard to help them accomplish this task. And….that they did. It’s been said that Ted and Jens made one good industrial designer. Jens with his beautiful designs and Ted with knowing how they had to be made to be affordable. Dansk Designs was purchased in 1985 by Dansk Acquisition Corp initiated by Goldman Sachs. Then in 1991 it was purchased by Brown-Forman Corporation’s Lenox division. 2009 brought the most recent change when it was all purchased and renamed Lenox Corporation. Currently Dansk operates as a brand of Lenox and still makes beautiful wares. But it is its vintage pieces which are most sought after today.

We have priced them separately so you may purchase just one. But I don’t know how you would choose. I think you should have them all. Make them yours!
