Antique & Vintage Art Nouveau & Art Deco: Fine Art, Postcards, Jewelry, Clothing and Collectibles.
About Nouveau to Now
Our Service Pledge To You:
I respond to all enquiries and orders promptly and guarantee the authenticity of my items. I do extensive research prior to listing and never knowingly sell new items.
Orders will be shipped speedily after payment is verified. Reasonable offers will be considered and I offer Layaways on request for that item you fall in love with but cannot quite afford today. See my Layaway plan details under Terms of Sale.
PLEASE NOTE: With regard to my Antique Etchings and Lithographs..While an A+ (near mint) Condition will add to the cost of these items, their value is in their scarcity and not their condition. While I make every effort to describe any damage or flaws in my items, please be aware that they are all Antique or Vintage and unless they are described ~as new~ they will show signs of a previous life. If you are looking for 'new' or 'perfect' then they are probably not for you.
Offering: Postcards, Jewelry, Original French Etchings and Gravures, Vintage Posters, Silk Kimono and unique Collectibles.
Please drop by my store regularly as I will be ADDING UNIQUE STOCK on a regular basis. If you love old theatre costumes and anything related to Vintage fashion..why not drop by my other Ruby Lane shop..Cazzie's Closet..where you will find an exciting range of Fashion Postcards and Art + more wonderful Antique Kimono and theatre costumes.
I have been collecting Antique French Art Works, Art Nouveau Jewelry, Vintage Postcards and Japanalia all my life and have a background in The Arts spanning 5 decades.
I have been Artistic Director of bricks and mortar Harp of Erin Gallery/Emporium (in the beautiful Blue Mountains of New South Wales Australia) for 15 years and I am also the Artistic Director of Comedy Theatre Company~NTT Productions.
You might say I have a 'theatrical eye' and I have found it invaluable when seeking unique stock for my shop.
My great passion and area of expertise is L'Art Nouveau Era ~1895-1910~ but I love anything with an 'atmosphere' from Victorian Objets d'Art and Antique lithographs to 1980's Bling!
I aim to tempt you with an interesting selection from my vast jewelry inventory including Antique Bohemian Garnets, Cameos, Amethysts, Pearls, Amber, Marcasite and Vintage Bakelite and Diamantes. I will also carry unique Antique and Vintage original silk Kimono and rare French lithographs from L' Estampe Moderne and Les Maitres de L' Affiche series by Alphonse Mucha, Aubrey Beardsley, Georges de Feure, Degas, Burne-Jones and Lautrec.
I DO NOT participate in the Ruby Lane Red Tag Sales, but I regularly offer REDUCED PRICES on a range of items and am ALWAYS open to OFFERS.
If you are seeking a special piece that you do not see in my shop please contact me via email as my inventory, especially jewelry, is vast and I just might have what you seek.
As the items I list on Ruby Lane will also be for sale in my bricks and mortar Gallery, I advise customers that if a particular item takes your fancy it is a good idea to grab it..LAY-AWAY is always an affordable option.
I offer FREE POSTAGE WITHIN AUSTRALIA and will always find the CHEAPEST and SAFEST INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE for my customers across the globe.
PS: My current shop logo graphic is 'The Angel's Message' by British painter George Hillyard Swinstead 1860-1926.
