A couple of weeks ago I purchased a carnival glass fruit bowl stand made by Imperial Glass from the early 1900s. My previous attempts to find the correct bowl to fit the stand had been unsuccesful and very frustrating. Nevertheless, I soldiered on in my search for the elusive “Twin”.
I finally found it. I was so eager to receive this bowl that I emailed the owner twice so that I would know when to expect it. I never got an answer to my email. That felt like a bad sign but I still eagerly awaited my package.

Silver is wonderful isn't it? Nothing quite makes a festive meal like silverware. Even though some consider it high maintenance, it is so worth it when that beautiful shine comes through.

An antique is a piece of history that becomes part of your history.
Allow me to tell you a tale of the perfect gift, until it wasn't. In the early 2000s, I worked for a New York antiques dealer who specialized in exquisite and rare artifacts. He had a colorful and varied clientele comprised of foreign aristocrats, corporate moguls, and famous artists.

Rosary and prayer beads have a long history. They are used to keep count of prayers and to keep track of what prayer should be said and in what order.

This painting is shown alongside two 1740s Manuscripts of the cantata La Lucretia by George Friedrich Handel, (1685-1759) the German-born British Baroque composer famous for his operas and organ concertos. The exhibition brings together two creative interpretations of the Lucretia story: Guercino’s painting and Handel’s music.

Recently I've had several clients chat with me about displaying and storing their cameo collection. Having given some tips to them I thought I might write a quick article to help other collectors in their pursuit to safely store their prized pieces, in such a way that they can get great pleasure from their collection.
