I always loved marble statues and collected them for a time. This one is my largest and was obtained through Christies in NYC. Could have bought a very expensive car for what I paid. It is by Enrico Astorrio and was made in the exact year signed 1885 when he had his studio in Milan.

I still have it, staying in the spot where a pillar is. It is not something sold easily as it weighs a ton. The lamp is one of 4 large made for a hotel chain in Canada, only those 4 were made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The lamps were previously in The Hotel Saskatchewan, in Regina, which had changed owners when I got them.

In the first photo also shown in the fourth is my table by Bernard Molitor which is in the lower right of the photo. It was possibly owned by Dupont, a minister of Napolean's court and was obtained from Sotheby's in NYC. Before I owned it, it belonged to John E. DuPont and has a label under the marble top attesting to belonging to his collection. Among other things, he owned the table the declaration of independence was signed on. This table, which was one of a kind, is cataloged in the book on Molitor, ebeniste, and they used the Sothebys photo. Of course there is a bigger story on the table, but I just put the basics here.

    Thank you so much, I remember my friends coming about the time I painted the walls like an Egyptian tomb, Aswan granite, and they laughed, I thought they were having a heart attack, saying I had too much time on my hands, as I had taken apart 50 Egyptian bracelets to put up the little gilt decorations underneath the border near the ceiling. That was a great fun project, just getting all those bracelets from a wholesaler was a lot of interesting fun and going to the trade show too !~
