We run a company called Stormcrow Pictures. We do web and video work and are now also getting into the somewhat pell-mell but completely fascinating (and hopefully somewhat lucrative) world of dealing antiques.
We also have a Blog where we discuss Steampunk Art, antiques, antique technology, books, geek culture, and whatever else we feel like writing about.
“Arcane Objects,” or as the French might say, “objets mystérieux,” are items, typically antique, that come from the fringes of yesterday’s society. Some will notice that we tend towards the Steampunk and Dieselpunk look. Examples of this are, antique electronics (vacuum tubes, steam gauges, stirling engines), old puppets (chinese opera puppets, old steiff puppets), or just anything from times now past that have the distinct look of that era- art deco for example. It’s really just things that we get excited about. Our hope is that there are others out there who share our esthetic.
