Antique French GlobeThe perfect accent for the worldly gentleman, this antique globe was created at a time when the wealthy cruised about the world in luxurious ocean liners, and conversed about their travels with the aid of this mapped representation of the world as it was known then. Cast iron tripod base.  Great on the desk or in the bookcase!

Antique Hunting Trophy

It was common practice in 19th century Europe to make antique trophies that could be placed in the bookcase, atop the mantel or on the desk from one’s hunting exploits, rather than the more common practice today of mounting on wall plaques. This antique Renaissance style trophy, cleverly designed to be removable for cleaning, it is obviously the product of truly talented artisans!
France, Circa 1850′s.

Antique Napoleon Bonaparte Inkwell

Boasting its original bronzed finish, this antique Empire style inkwell makes the ultimate desktop accessory, and depicts the impatient Napoleon, apparently waiting for the writer to finish his piece! Dark green marble base. France, circa 1890s.

Antique Mantel Clock
This Second Empire mantel clock features a black patinaed finish with gold highlights that blends perfectly with the beveled and footed slate base. Brass Roman numerals and hands.  A perfect enhancement on the mantel, shelf or buffet of your favorite room.

Antiques in Style is a source of joy for me to create, and hopefully will be a source of inspiration for you! The variety, artistry and history of the antiques and vintage pieces that surround us every day provide pleasure, beauty and sometimes even intrigue.

The classics never go out of style, and each era, country, and even artisan's interpretations create an environment that is always full of surprises.

It is truly a pleasure to bring such timeless style together for every client and follower of my blog. And of course, your input is always welcome!
