This incredible hand painted box, possibly from 19th c. or earlier, is hand crafted. The colors in places are vibrant and in worn areas muted, there seems to have been initials on the top which is very worn and has loss of painted design. The top is hinged with pegs, and it is joined by handmade nails, shaped like narrow triangles, you can see the tops in several photos, and in 4th photo. The crossed inserts, creating compartments are not original ,but not offensive...

This handmade piece enhances the laundering experience, don't you think?

The lace insertions are 3" deep.Pockets for the draw string on each side, however I've left it as found with the braid and draw string. Fabulous heavy creamy linen,most likely hand loomed...

This delightful figural layover sham/ wall hanging, heralds"Every Morning Without Worry" in Swiss German! It is most typical of the Folk Art of the Alsace, France region, bordered by Switzerland and Germany. In fact, the region has passed back and forth between France and Germany several times, and the dialect is more near Swiss German.Typical of the everyday scenes depicted in this folk art, this very accomplished embroidery depicts sweethearts"greeting" over the wall at the well, with doves f...

Fabulous design with art deco and art nouveau influence in these 4 large European napkins. Sorry, my photos just don't do them justice. They are truly wonderful! You might know that since theis period was so unique but short lived, fewer good examples survived. The curvy STR or SR intertwined monogram is not professional but nicely padded hand embroidery.These measure 24", and there are a couple of tiny little green hand stitched laundry mark threads! Excellent condition,freshly laundered and ir...

All Items : Fine Art : Mixed Media : Silhouettes : Pre 1930 item #621858 (stock #FA0003)
Once again, silhouettes have become quite collectible, and this is has a most desirable subject matter The detail in this signed E.V.Maydell and dated 1921 work is most incredible. It is black paper on ecru paper.There is some lifting of the silhouette,and the only breaks I note are at the top of the foot pedal cords,none of which detract at all. It seems to be framed in the age worn, but original black frame. There is no glass, and I leave that to the collector to do as preferred. Of special n...
