collectible set of 4 diverse and elaborately clothed dolls plus
one free, some very rare in their theme and clothing and all in
very good condition. The set of 4 plastic dolls all have moveable
heads and arms, and 3 of the 4 have eyes that close when the dolls
are lying down to simulate real sleep. The set includes 1
a lovely Jewish theme doll dressed in a flowing white gown with
Star of David decoration and brilliant purple trim 2 a country
homemeaker doll with red, white and blue colors, red bonnet, and
an LG monogramed on the front of her apron 3 American Indian
doll with braids and beaded headband and leather dress plus mocassins
4 pretty redhead doll with intricate hand knit dress in white,
purple, and yellow. Included for free is a great Latin
influence doll with vibrant red and yellow dress and black hair
net ready for the dance who regrettably is missing her eyes; it
is likely a doll restorer could replace these if you want to take
the time. The Star of David outfit is really rare and seldom seen,
and that doll may have an interesting background with further research.
While she shares characteristics with the others, her eyes are different
and may indicate a different path to market. All of the dolls are
in very good condition except for the free extra, and all are approximately
7.0" high and come direct from a Fort Lauderdale, FL waterfront
estate. They're bargain priced for quick sale!
set of 4 + 1 free
1950s Couroc bakelite coin tray that has both a fun and practical
design that you'll want to both display and use around the house.
Imbedded in the tray are old coins from around the world, and while
we're uncertain the origin of some we can identify coins from Peru
1957, India, Cypress 1955, the Netherlands, France 1955, a coin
from one of the Nordic countries, and a penny coin from 1914. The
tray measures approximately 15.5" x 10.75" and is in good
condition with no cracks or damage and some minor surface scratching
on the right side that can be faintly seen in certain light angles.
This is clearly a Couroc tray although it's missing its paper label,
and Couroc was very well known for their mid 20th century plastic
trays ornamented with inlaid wood designs, sea shells befitting
the company's location on Monterrey, CA, and of course coins and
medals. Great as a gift for a coin collector or collector of vintage
be very glad you found this vintage 1992 copy of Stephen Biesty's
Incredible Cross-Sections, a fascinating book including 2 fold-out
pictures nearly 3 feet long of the ocean liner Queen Mary and a
steam train. Other cross sections include the Space Shuttle, Empire
State Building, Subway Station, Opera House, Helicopter, Coal Mine,
tank, Oil Rig, Cathedral, Jumbo Jet, Car Factory, Fishing Trawler,
Submarine, Galleon, Observatory, and a Castle. Each illustration
is based on actual plans and architects' drawings, so viewers see
inside real ships, buildings, and machines. We all had fun
looking through this and will be sorry to see the 14.25" x 10.75"
book go, and it's in excellent condition and includes original paper
coat of arms with shield goldtone metal pin can be yours at a bargain
price, part of a time sensitive estate liquidation in Miami, FL.
The coat of arms pin is a nice theme always of collector interest,
and there is above average detail in the coat of arms especially
in the top crown. The pin measures 1.25" x 1.25" and is
in excellent condition.
bronzed metal picture frame and baby shoe decorative work, with
all original patina and finish. One way you know this is an older
set is the oval glass in the 4.0" high oval picture frame, with
ornate detailing top and bottom. The 5.75" long and 2.75" high bronzed
shoe sits alongside the mirror and adds a nice decorative flourish
to the piece. Altogether, the base of the unit measures approximately
7.25" wide and 4.0" deep, while it rises to 5.75" high to the top
of the picture frame. The piece is in excellent condition and retains
well over 95% of its original finish, and it doesn't look like it's
been polished which is good to preserve value. The oval glass in
the frame is a real plus!
to find set of 4 Royal Copenhagen porcelain mini plates measuring
approximately 3.25" in diameter and in very good condition.
Each plate has a hole in the back for a wire hanger to hook them
on the wall, and some already have the wire attached. Each depicts
a scene from Danish and European life in extraordinary detail in
the Delft blue color that collectors desire. This set captures scenes
from interesting public buildings and statuary and includes clockwise
from top left the rare Fajance Rundetarn 8/2010, Christiansborg
Slot 70/2010, Randers Radhaus Nielsebbesens Statue 27/2010, and
rare Amagertorv 6 Kobenhavn 35/2010. The plates look great hanging
on the wall in sets of 4, or add many more to really draw attention
to that wall or setting in your home. Each plate is marked on the
back with the name of the building or location shown, the Royal
Copenhagen bell mark with lines, "Denmark", the style
number, and in some cases the artist's signature or mark.

wandering through a Greenwich, CT waterfront mansion, our staff
found this exceptionally large prong set rhinestone brooch in rather
stunning blue and acquamarine colors. A large center stone is surrounded
by elongated and small octagonal stones in a multi-layered design
technique. It's a large and substantial piece, with a setting that
reflects a quality you don't really see much anymore in costume
jewelry- one reason why collectors value the vintage pieces so highly.
This is a lovely piece in with high quality stones in a desirable
color, and the brooch measures approximately 3.0" in diameter.
vintage costume jewelry pins! 1. The first brooch has clear
rhinestones in a floral metal setting and one large rhinestone 0.5"
in diameter surrounded by 12 smaller rhinestones. Overall, the pin
is approximately 1.75" in diameter and in excellent condition. 2.
The second brooch is an eye catching modern starburst design in
a gold metal setting, very well constructed and measuring approximately
" x " and in excellent condition. Part of an estate collection
and offered at a great price!
fine set of 4 Arcoroc France red glass coffee mugs that came to
us from a lovely oceanfront home in Isle of Palms, SC outside of
Charleston. These vintage red glass coffee mugs are really hard
to find, and they're a perfect size for that piping hot cup of coffee
at 4.0" high and 3.0" in diameter not including the handle.
Each of the 4 coffee cups is in excellent condition and has the
raised "Arcoroc France" mark in the glass on the bottom.
religious themed metal frame has clear age but is of uncertain origin.
We love it, finding it stashed in the attic of a Maine farmhouse.
There seems to be a round hallmark impressed in the metal on the
rear, but we cannot make out enough of the mark to do any further
investigation regarding the manufacturer. Collectors will love the
frame and the worshipful will appreciate the very well done depiction
of Jesus which is featured in it. The frame and artwork is in good
condition with minor age wear visible with close inspection, and
it's ready to hang on the wall measuring approximately 5.0"
nice tiered wood mirror with 4 tiers and gold accent paint highlighting
each step up toward the mirror. The piece measures approximately
13.5" x 11.5" and 1.25" deep including the frame, while the mirror
itself is 9.5" x 7.5".
pretty highly detailed and colorful ceramic art tile picture frame
came right off the shelf of a Ft. Lauderdale, FL penthouse condominium
overlooking the Atlantic. We really like the design details such
as the depth and detail in the large flowers on the upper right
and lower left corners, and detail and precision is evident throughout
the design. We also liked the muted colors of brown and a flow blue
shade of blue to make for a great look. It features a center round
glass for pictures to come through at 3.25" in diameter, and
the overall time frame measures approximately 5.0" x 5.0".
It's in excellent condition and can be hung on the wall or stand
up by itself, and it's ready for a new photo and a new home!
how these very high quality photo quality French lithograph prints
from around the turn of the 20th century can transform a room in
your house! These "plates" are from a book c. 1910 back
when elaborate art books were published of the masterpieces of the
world's museums, affordable for only the very few given the top
craftsmanship and equipment needed to produce prints of this quality
back then. Each print comes mounted lightly to a page describing
the name and date of the work and it's museum home, but they're
made to be removed and framed. This set of 4 is a fascinating study
of men in close up and men in the company of others which look great
framed and mounted separately or an eclectic contrast together sure
to generate conversation and complements. The set includes from
top left L'Execution De Maximilien (8.0" x 9.75"- Tate
Gallery London), Le Fifre (6.25" x 10.75"- Musee du Louvre),
Le Bar Des Follies Bergere (10.0" x 7.5"- Courtauld Gallery
London), and Portrait De Clemenceau (7.75" x 10.0"- Musee
du Louvre). All prints are in excellent condition, direct from a
Larchmont, NY estate.
mahogony wood carved figure of a woman, probably of African descent,
in a finely detailed and elaborately carved wrapped dress and headdress.
A large carved flower decorates her ornamental headdress, and there
is finely carved detail all over the front and back surface of her
dress. She's a lovely young woman and carries some type of interesting
object on her back. Note the carved wood checkerboard pattern on
the floor surface as well as the fine and slightly elongated detail
of the hands and feet. The entire design and execution reflects
the highest quality, and best of all is the size of this work measuring
a full 25.5" high and 5.5" in diameter at the base. There
have been two repairs to the work over the years which can be seen
under close examination. The object on her back has been reglued
to the body in a nice tight fit that could use just a little color
tint to make the seam go away, and the fold of her dress she's holding
in her hand has also been reglued but is very hard to see against
the body of the dress. Direct from a Malibu, California estate collection
of African inspired art, it's offered at a bargain price!
probably didn't know that Avon used to make plastic jewelry too,
but now you do with this vintage marked Avon colorful plastic bangle
bracelet from the 1960s. We love the curves of the individual plastic
components that comprise this stretch bangle, and the vibrant colors
of red, white, blue, green, and yellow make for a great look. The
bracelet measures a nice and chunky 1.25" wide and is 2.25"
in diameter when not stretched. Many of the individual plastic pieces
are marked on the interior "Avon".
pair of decorative wax figure candleholders, the type of design
accessory that can absolutely make a room unique. The conical base
is studded with faux pearls, rhinestones, and other decorative flourishes,
capped off with those terrific wax faces with hand painted detailing.
These are quite large, measuring approximately 13.25" high
and 6.5" x 4.5" at the base. Super design and shape, of
unknown origins beyond coming out of a Scottsdale, Arizona estate
collection of world memorabilia.
nice set of 4 mid 20th century hard plastic cocktail trays with
an intricate floral imprint that combines background gold flowers
with black highlights against a white background with periodic splashes
of color as the red rose flowers and buds emerge. Each tray measures
approximately 7.75" x 4.5" and are "Alcohol Proof"
as is stamped on the back- safe to spill a nice cocktail on we suppose.
While there is some very minor usage wear, the set of 4 trays is
in very good condition and is sure to come in handy at your next
|$28.00/ set of 4 trays
paua shell "Noah's Ark" bracelet, mint condition in original
box and measuring approximately 7.5" long. The Noah's Ark theme
is hard to find, and the craftsmanship and design is very strong
in this whimsical piece with the animals like giraffes and elephants
heading in pairs of two toward the ark in the center accented by
paua shell. Cross listed on Pets 4.
3 vintage die cast metal pencil sharpeners made in China for export
to the U.S. market c 1960s -1970s that are very hard to find any
more in this age of pens and computers. These are great to display
as the casting has very good detail, but they also come in handy
if your family is like most of ours and those pencils are still
hanging around your house. This set of 3 features a kitchen and
home decor theme and includes an old sewing machine, piano (piano
key cover opens to reveal keys within), and globe (spins).
All measure approximately 3" x 3" and 2.75" high
and feature an antique finish, and they're in good and working condition
with minor age wear. The globe on stand pencil sharpener comes in
the original box. Great to use and display!
|$26.00/ set of 3
listing! Interesting and super cool pink feather pen in the original
box plus an ornate metal penholder, both in very good condition
and quite a style statement. The pen is handcrafted by the Hanover
Pen Corporation of Hanover, PA, and the original sticker remains
on the box which kind of worn and torn in a few places but it's
nice it exists. The pen is quite elaborate, and we love the pink
feather which extends up 12.0" from the top of the pen and
making the pen a total of 17.0" long. It would go great with
a pink flamingo in your front yard, and the handcrafted pen is quite
nice. They come to you direct from an eclectic San Francisco, CA
