A stunning and dynamic pair of Art Deco Candlesticks. The most modernist shape you could imagine and yet still be very simple and elegant. The angular shape allows for a special arrangement, either on a your table, buffet or mantel. Each candlestick holds 5 candles and each candle is organized with detailed machined fittings. The juxtaposition of shapes is marvelous on these with the intersection of circles and squares to accentuate the dynamic design. Very, very solid-heavy and would look great on any table setting etc. etc. etc.
A wonderful and very used Art Deco serving tray. This is particularly unique with beautiful straight grained solid wood Macassar wood details. Beautiful mirrored tray with wood trim, the sets also includes 5 separate glass serving containers. Nice handles for hosting your next Mad Men party. Snack Time could be on the way for you.
We've been looking for a set like this for years. A spectacular restored German Art Nouveau - Jugendstil transition into Art Deco Coffee Service. Stunning in every way. The Tray is large and the handles are all 3-dimensions with carved scroll and jewell treatment. Looks great sitting flat on your coffee table and yet feels extremely important to carry to your most comfortable destination. There are 5 pieces in total: coffee, tea, sugar, creamer and try. The silver is in fantastic condition and shows like a first place trophy. The shapes are graceful and stately with lots of fine details on every pieces. German circa 1920's with markings on the bottom: OX Cologne associated with WMF.
This stunning simple modernist design is one of my favorites. Very modern and yet very vintage. Designed by Sigvard Bernadotte for Georg Jensen. The piece is signed on the bottom with all the appropriate marks. The condition is near perfect! Would make a great candy or flower dish, just the thing to set off a perfect table. There is no question that Georg Jensen silver is one of the best known names for classic vintage sterling flatware, jewelry and watches. The hollowware is some of the most sought after and important pieces manufactured during this very high period of design.
We have just completed the restoration of this classic Art Deco Coffee Tea service. Beautiful design, wonderful condition with a great tray as well. The pieces are marked Buenos Aires, but there is also a German mark on the side as well. Most likely made in Germany and exported to Buenos Aires before WW 2. In any event, classic European design ready for you to serve that wonderful morning tea/coffee and croissants (why not have it in bed)! Sounds good to me.
This might be the nicest Punch bowl set we've ever seen! Breathtakingly stunning and sharp! We bought this years ago and finally got around to preparing it for sale. We had it re-silvered but when we finally got around to polishing it, well as you can see the results are amazing. A somewhat modernist design, with exceptional features: a substantial large silver tray with hefty wood handles, a perfect stylized etched glass bowl with it own stylized interior tray, a complimentary large silver ladle and all finished off with a matching silver top with it own handle. Would be a fantastic serving piece, great for cold soups, punch or anything that might be of liquid persuasion (some exotic cocktail). Ready to put right into service for your next event or holiday party.
I love to find things in pairs, it doesn't happen often. I believe we have here a pair of silver-plated jardinieres most likely of German origin and maybe WMF! There has been some restoration done to them and what you see is newly restored silver-plating throughout. Great simple art deco design with repeated stylized vine and flower motif, a bit reminiscent of Art Nouveau design, but very much works with Art Deco. Notice the nice faceted raised tapered lines which surrounds both pieces in a symmetrical motif. Be great to use on a large dining buffet or as ice buckets or plant holders. Lots of possibilities.
What a beautiful service this is, so many nice details. The French were great at designing and manufacturing these wonderful classic sets (a time gone by). This particular one was designed and manufactured by H.L. Linton of Paris, each piece is stamped on the bottom. The design is great, very cubist and somewhat asymmetrical (notice the elongated and angular shapes). Not your typical French coffee service. Each piece has some very nice details with rosewood handles that have been delicately shaped in such a way to allow the cubist influence of the metal work desgin to stand out in very original way. Almost like a French cubist painting.
This is an exciting Susie Cooper, 15 piece set of the striking modernist china by one of Britain’s most reknown ceramicists and dinnerware designers. Green & Black Coffee set with Kestrel pot, sugar, creamer, six cups and six saucers. Excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Very little crazing and nothing that takes away from the pattern or look. Created in 1933 the graduated black bands on cream background comes alive with bright green detail. In an era of otherwise flowery and whimsical pattern names and embellishment this truly stands out as bold and forward thinking. This pattern is predominately featured in the most important books on Susie Copper and 20th Century Ceramic designers. With the important Kestrel coffee pot!
Today, one usually finds a single cup, a jug or plate at auction. but here is a stunning set of matcing pieces!
Along with Clarice Cliff and Charlotte Rhead, Susie Cooper is famous for introducing vivid colors and avant garde designs to English Pottery and this is one of the finest and most collectable. Her career, highly documented in many books on Art Deco and Ceramics spanned more than 60 years, including her “Deco Era “ work at Crown Pottery in Burslem in the 30s through the 60s and 70s as a master designer at Wedgwood China.
Offered here is a spectacular 3 piece Royal Rochester Coffee Service. Included electric coffee percolator, sugar and creamer. This is a pattern your do not see often (kind of like hen's teeth). The pattern known as Modernistic. Look at the amazing patterns and colors. Royalite China ware designed for cooking and serving. Partnership of Royal Rochester and Electric Appliance and Fraunfelter Fine China. Amazing Design, Far ahead of its time Circa 1925-1930. Purchased directly from a retired collector. You can search for years and still can not find this patter. We also have some of the very obscure coffee cups with metal holders, waffle iron, chocolate service.
Nice French Coupe , not huge but great quality with the solid Burr Amboyna piece. Has a makers mark but I don't know who it is, in very good original condition.
A wonderful serving piece, really big silver plated bronze Tazza. An amazing design with fabulous stepped ziggurat handles and other stylized decoration on a heavy fluted tapering column. Excellent condition all round with makers mark R*M for Roux-Marquiand of Lyon to the underside.
A really stunning silver plated bronze coupe by Apollo. A centerpiece of superb quality and condition throughout and in like new original condition. This is a wonderful design with heavy geometric decoration. The bowl has a wonderful fluted design. It would be hard to find this quality today in almost any shop. Look at the way the bowl is faceted together. Very very nice.
Now this is a very unique box to keep some of your prized possessions. Art Deco enamel box in a gold tinted gilded finish with very strong black and red modernist design. The inside has an original soft fabric, probably originally used as a keepsake box for jewelry and special things. I think I'll keep my remotes in it (someone said). Nice size to with an unusual interior with silhouette portrait of a woman.
Here is an rather curious and very nice quality designed cigarette box. Would look great on your desk. The wood is a remarkable amboyna burl and the base has a pair of metal ski's to balance the box. A special piece for the right person. Could be used for any small objects.
This is a nice mid-century English set designed by the company PicquotWare, this company is still in business today. Exclusive, modern design made from Magnailium. An alloy especially developed for Picquot Tableware which: is polished (not plated), is cast in one piece to ensure no leaks occur around the spout, is especially designed spouts for smooth non-drip pouring, is machined and has milled lid hinges for perfect fit and can be rejuvenated after many years use. The designs have heat resisted handles made of sycamore wood. Extremely useful and functional set, the tray is peach mirror with wooden handles has some nice etching in the center and bevelled edges, most likely not original to the set but looks great together.
I think you must be ready to have a tea party now. A set like this is a real eye catcher. Nice Art Deco shape with faceted corners on a round shape. Of course solid wood Rosewood handles with a very pleasing reverse 7 handle and matching top. This one is ready to go into service.
The set bears the marks of the WMF silver company, the initials of the famous German foundry " Wurttembergische Metallwarenfabrik", most often simply called WMF. It was founded in the 1853 as a partnership between Daniel Straub and Josef and Friedrich Schweizer, and in 1892 developed a special technique for silver plating in which the silver coating is of double thickness in any parts that will be exposed to greater wear and tear. This patented process is called "Perfect Hard Silver Plating".
In 1910, under the art direction of Albert Mayer, WMF became famous for its Art Nouveau style and established companies for world wide exports in London, Warsaw and Vienna. Many pieces were sent to Argentina between 1910 and 1930, and it is likely that Harrods Department Store which opened in Buenos Aires in 1912 was one of the major importers of decorative pieces such as this tea and coffee set.
The set consists of the following pieces: coffee, tea, sugar, creamer and tray all original.
This wonderful newly chromed WMF wine/Champagne bucket is sharp and stylish. Just newly excellent restored condition. The ebony wood handles securely allow you to handle this little pleasure either filled or empty. Great signature on the bottom, circa 1930's. Also, notice the nice ribbed edge around the top of the metalwork. Works for me.
Very large and unusual detailed large glass vase with unique metalwork. Looks to be of German origin, the metal work is highly stylized and detailed. The top represents the "sun", on both sides with wonderfully fitted with a starburst metal collar design that covers this very ornate leaf and flower etched clear glass vase. The piece is secured in a wonderful stable metal base. It quality of the metal finish is original antique nickel over bronze metal. A very unusual item for our shop not only with an art deco but also a Nouveau point of view. I always like to see these two periods comes together in a kind of transitional design that allows it to live in many places. Maybe your home or your museum?
Striking candlestick made in '925" sterling in a modernist design. Circa 1930's clear mark and made of the finest materials. With a new polish you can see the great lines. Holds 5 candles and would make a brilliant centerpiece for any table or buffet. Not exactly sure of its history and origins, but there are some marks on the bottom that might give some definitive information as to who was the maker. Quality sterling piece for sure.
Presented here is a stunning example of Moderne Art Deco design executed in a quality that is very rare not only today but even during the Art Deco period. This is a very heavy triple silver-plate ribbed design (very 3 dimensional) bucket made in England around 1930. Certainly comparable to Tiffany or International Silver. Mappin and Webb is a company originally founded in Sheffield, England. The company is a noted firm of Silversmiths and formerly cutlery manufactures with roots back to 1774 when Joseph Mappin (snr) founded the firm. The company is now a retail jeweler, and Royal Warrant holder. The Firm was taken over by Asprey & Co. in the 1980s, but was sold later. The company is now a brand owned by the Jewelers Goldsmiths group.
This stunning silver-plated champagne ice bucket was made in Germany by the famous WMF Company, between 1915 and 1920. It bridges both the Arts & Crafts (or in Germany the Art Nouveau) Movement leaning into the Art Deco design. You can see the natural decorative element of 'acorn & fern' with wonderful triangular darts in a very modern round shape. So this is where the two ideas come together nicely. Made in Germany by WMF and hallmarked as well. The WMF (Wurttemberg Metal Goods Factory) Company began operations in 1853 and is still one of the world's foremost manufacturers in silver tableware
A distinctive vase, fashioned of heavy etched glass with chrome handled accent. This is another of our collection of pieces that were once used, and perhaps sold, through the legendary La Coupole Restaurant in Paris. La Coupole was founded in 1927 and once a leading center of artistic life. La Coupole is now the epitome of the grand Paris brasserie in Montparnasse. Former patrons included Josephine Baker, Henry Miller, Dalí, Calder, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Picasso. Some of the artists painted on the columns, or added their creations to the decor.
This glass vessel bears the signature of the artist A.Riecke, a Russian who lived and worked in Paris in 1937, the name and date are etched in the glass as part of the decorative detail.
Silver Plate Coffee Set/ Arts and Crafts Era With the spare,clean lines reminiscent of Charles Rennie MacIntosh this set includes a coffee pot, creamer, sugar and matchng tray. It would look equally at home in an Art Deco,Arts and Crafts, or contemporary home... You can see the transition from "art nouveau" into the more geometric style of 1910 that would complete the "streamline evolution".
This set is just light enough to easily carry upstairs for your morning coffee and croissants!
This has to be one of the nicest Art Deco Coffee/Tea sets we've had in years. Every detail is in place and the quality is outstanding. You only need to pick up a single piece to feel what I am talking about (both weight and balance together). Certainly comparable to any Christofle or Gallia French Art Deco service. All wood is dark solid rosewood and handles are fitted as one would expect from the best silversmiths of that period. In great original condition. Ready to be put into action without reservation. Look at the way the base is stepped to accommodate the fluted centers and yet both the coffee and tea pieces have unusually long handles. Obviously, someone meant to design this set as you can see. I suspect it must be an important French name.
Here is a fun pair of very well designed candlesticks. They are from Argentina marked 925 silver. The design is very sophisticated, with nice metal work showing off the fluting all around the candle holders and echoed in the main vertical base as well. Obviously they were designed with the circle holder so you move them from to room to room. Very nicely made and quite symmetrical in the height and width of the design. Completely original with no repairs or required restoration.
Here's a very hefty and detailed 1930s nickel-plated bronze Art Deco urn. This generously sized container has been carved and engraved with six intricate nature-inspired vignettes and boasts not one but two elephant-head handles. Each scene features a different kind of bird in the wild. The nickel-plated finish has developed a beautiful patina with age and has a wonderful gleam. The top of the urn is octagonal in shape and the edge has a Greek key engraved design. This beautiful urn/planter/vase could be utilized for a myriad of decorating possibilities and as you can see, is quite beautiful with or without contents.
Here's a wonderful 1920s Arts & Crafts/Art Deco bronze vase with a distinguished verdigris patina finish by renown metalsmith artisan Carl Sorenson. This vase is in wonderful condition and was most likely used to hold flowers which resulted in some surface pitting and wear on the interior of the vase. This smaller vase is the perfect size for a desk or bedside table and could be used in fact to hold desk items rather than flowers. Either way, this beautiful 1920s bronze vase, with its flared trumpet shape, horizontal banding and pedestal foot has the elegance and simplicity of more contemporary pieces. The vase is signed on the bottom in script, "Carl Sorenson" and stamped "bronze".
What else can I possibly say about these heavily chrome-plated brass, rare, hefty, 1930s French Art Deco Candlesticks? Hmm, how about they possess an unusual low profile with a strong Modernist architectural design. What's more, they look fantastic used alone (dinner for two?) or stunning when used as the pair.
A beautifully made French Art Deco coffee and tea set featuring expertly crafted hardwood details and strong deco geometric design. The set comprises a coffee pot, a tea pot, a creamer, a covered sugar bowl and a generously sized serving tray (i.e. room for petits fours) with hardwood handles.
First, let me say this. Wow! This is a rare find to say the least. A gorgeous 1930s Czech glass covered punchbowl set with a stunning silver-plate and bakelite ladle, a silver-plate topper, 4 equally stunning glasses and it's all in pristine condition. The generously sized punchbowl and hefty glasses feature an unusual and beautiful oval faceted design with acid-etched and hand-painted details in the most coveted of colors (black and red). Just imagine serving punch to your guests from this spectacular Art Deco punchbowl set at your next gathering.
Just picture this pitcher on your table! This charming silver-plate pitcher has been beautifully and artistically designed with a floral motif of blooming roses on the vine. The neck and handle of the pitcher feature a tight ribbed design and the rim possesses an almost "pleated" appearance. It is assuredly a most elegant vessel from which to serve a refreshing pour for your esteemed guests. It is stamped "Meriden Company" and "Quadruple Plate".
A beautifully designed and very heavy quality 1920's 1930's French Art Deco silver plated bronze serving dish or tureen complete with cover and it's original serving platter.All pieces are in perfect condition totally free from any damages or repairs retaining it's original silver plate which is wear and blemish free.The tureen has solid Macassar Ebony handles and finial which are all in perfect undamaged condition. It's very rare to find silver plated tureens from this period and to be complete with it's serving platter is extremely unusual, the platter is big and deep enough to be used as a serving tray on it's own. All three pieces have matching makers mark BB in a square and the standard French plate marks. A beautiful and rare piece of Art Deco period silver plated dinnerware that would look superb gracing your fine 1920's or 1930's dining table. Any marks or patchiness you can see in the pictures are just reflections, the plating is perfect.
