  1. This is one of my favorite Art Deco designs. (I have one of these ice buckets on the cocktail tray set in my picture collection.) I actually have a pair of these. One of them has a cobalt blue glas...
  2. It's electric.
  3. Wow...what happened to it all?
  4. Yeah, I've saved the box for potential resale in the future. There's one of these up for sale on Ebay currently (without a box), and I'm curious to see how much it sells for.
  5. I have one of these too, but mine is missing a little panel on the back of it. Did you polish and re-lacquer yours?
  6. Nice piece. I would invest the money and take it to a professional glass restoration specialist.
  7. Great lamp. I have a similar art deco torchiere with the same exact shade. However, mine does not have the art deco "Saturn" motif that yours does. I'm not sure of the manufacturer.
  8. I think the one on the American Restoration show was older than this one and it had wooden wheels. It might not have the same value.
  9. Amazing find!
  10. I love the Modernistic line from Kopp glass and have several pieces of it in my own collection. The powder box seems to be the most common piece that I've seen. It's very deco, and of course, much m...
  11. I just got word from a helpful lighter collector, that the red and black smoking set in my collection was made by Elgin Otis (and not Evans as I originally described), which was a joint venture of the...
  12. I just learned from Judith Miller's "20th Century Design" book that the larger tray depicts "the wheels and bumper of a speeding car" to represent the speed of travel in the 1930's. I know it's an ab...
  13. Pretty cool that I have a museum quality piece too!
  14. The next one I'd like to acquire is the blue mirror, demi-lune mantle clock by Rainbault. Here's the one I'm talking about: http://www.trocadero.com/stores/bbaa/items/430982/item430982.html
  15. I have one of these also, and I think all the Rainbault mirrored clocks look incredible!
  16. Thanks. Actually, it's not that large. It's about 12" wide and about 5" deep...probably about the size of any standard ceiling fixture. The pics probably make it look larger than it is.
  17. Thanks. I agree that much of our currently designed objects, including lighting, does not look as beautiful. And many of these objects can still be used today to full effect.
  18. Yes, that red and chrome Chase cigarette holder was a lucky and cheap find. I've never seen another one like it. What's your favorite deco piece in your collection?
  19. Thanks...it looks like you collect deco as well?
  20. Yes, it comes with a matching Heywood Wakefield crab leg dining table and chairs. I'll have to take some pics of those later.
  21. Ah, the "dresser" is really a mid-century modern buffet...Heywood Wakefield in a champagne finish.
  22. I want both the toaster and waffle iron! Wow.
  23. I love this clock, and I have been trying to find one to add to my art deco collection. Any interest in selling it?
  24. See more
