Please drop by my store regularly as I will be ADDING UNIQUE STOCK on a weekly basis.
I have been collecting Antique French Art Works, Art Nouveau Jewelry, Vintage Postcards and Japanalia all my life. I have a background in 'the Arts' spanning 5 decades and I am 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 items for my collections.
My great passion and area of expertise is the Art Nouveau Era ~1890-1910~ but I love anything with an 'atmosphere', from Victorian Objets d'Art and Antique lithographs to 1980's Bling!
It is now time to down-size and I aim to tempt you with an interesting selection from my vast jewelry collection: including Bohemian Garnets, Cameos, Amethysts, Pearls, Amber, Marcasite and Vintage Bakelite and Diamantes. I also offer unique items from my personal collection of Antique and Vintage original Japanese pure 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.
And lastly I will be offering some unique nostalgic clothing items and theatrical costumes..fringed piano shawls, velvet opera coats, mink and fox fur stoles, feather hats, evening gloves and alligator bags and shoes.
If you are seeking a special piece that you do not see in my shop please contact me via email as I just might have what you seek amongst my many collections.
If a particular item takes your fancy it is a good idea to grab it..and LAY-AWAY is always an affordable option..just ask.
I will always find the CHEAPEST and SAFEST INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE for my customers across the globe. A parcel from Australia to USA usually takes from 14-21 days. If you want your item in a hurry..I also offer an International Courier delivery which takes on average 3-4 days from Australia to USA. I DO NOT charge a packaging fee.
Re: INSURANCE: While you may decide not to insure your parcel by using the 'decline insurance' option on the Purchase Order.. I always recommend INSURANCE, especially for costly items.
I offer a large range of beautiful items and hope you enjoy browsing my shop.
PS: My shop logo graphic is 'The Angel's Message' by British painter George Hillyard Swinstead (1860-1926) and it has always hung in my bedroom. It represents my Guardian Angel. .
