All Items : Antiques : Decorative Art : Pre 1920 item #1226936 (stock #F0001)
Wonderful petite french ormolu frame with it's own stand, glass and reeded surround with crossed ribbons. A ruffled bow ribbon at the top! There are tiny chips to the edges of the glass, with one larger seen at top corner. It has its original separate metal backing covered in pale green and gold damask, which fits tight, though not necessary to use. The opening measures 2 3/8" X 3 7/8", and the frame measures 2 3/4" X 4 3/4"...
All Items : Fine Art : Paintings : Watercolor : Pre 1900 item #1225927 (stock #FA10019)
This delightful scene shows Dutch women engaged in preparation of food, in what must be a dining room. The water colors are still very vivid, however the reflection on the glass tends to cloud the true colors. The main themes of Dutch interior paintings, prevailing since the 17th c., are those of love and the virtues of domestic life focusing on the female figure...

All Items : Antiques : Furnishings : Accessories : Mirrors : Pre 1900 item #1133345 (stock #CL0059)
This fabulous mirror is carved, gessoed,and gilded with acanthus leaves, ruffled or beaded inner edges, resting on little scrolled feet. So delightful as well as useful item for your boudoir! Of course you could even hang it on your wall! It has just the right patina and wear! There seems to be some minor repairs, which are age appropriate. The last photo shows the easel back connected by a little brass chain. The mirror seems to be hand cut, and the under paint is ochre boule...

Perfect for your chateau or villa, how stunning to frame and hang! I've had several of these before and was thrilled to find some again! These large new linen Italian towels feature a large urn overflowing with a bounty of fruit framed with a Greek key motif. Unique for a hostess gift also. See available colors in this pattern. I laundered the blue one, to see how it behaved and it is now soft but very sturdy...
All Items : Antiques : Decorative Art : Metals : Silver : Plate : Pre 1900 item #1127958 (stock #CL0065)
Exceptional silvered cast metal (pewter?) frames most extravagantly designed with a royal crown corona draped with swagged tassels, cartouch, intricate floral filled urn, and acanthus leaves gracing all 4 sides. Whew, talking about rich detail! Every time I study them I see more! Of course they stand on little swirled feet. Each easel backing does not appear original to the frames...but work just fine. I found this matched pair in a little shop near Paris...

I just couldn't resist bringing back this pair of framed silhouettes from Paris! How perfect for your bar area! What does this story appear to be to you? I'd love to hear your interpretation...I'm reserving mine...tee hee! They are in original condition, with some slight professional repair to the original ebonized period frames. However, I love them just as they are with signs of age! The glass seems to be hand cut...

I found this unique antique frame in a Brussels antique fair and knew it would be stunning hanging in a collection of frames or with a mirror. The finish is most likely a replica of the original. It has repaired crack and some loss of plaster in the inside beading, shown at the top left in the photo...
