Friends and customers, even friendly customers who keep track of me, know that I have been going at a frenetic place of late. It has been a whirlwind of shows and ailing parents and the shop has not been really open in months. I feel bad about it but it is what it is.
However all the while I have been obtaining and acquiring magnificent new stuff, crystal, silver, paintings prints and decorative objects of all manner and stripes. Leslie and I are working with a northern estate and selling an amazing collection of rare silver, glass and paintings. Gorham, Tiffany Chrysanthemum, Florentine and Olympian as well as a lot of holloware in the Clover pattern. I can not overstate the incredible stuff that is now passing through my hands. Last week I bought a 16th or 17th century spanish colonial communion box that has to be seen to be believed.
If you have an opportunity please call for an appointment and come check this stuff out. My shop is a wreck but hopefully it will be presentable by this weekend. My goal for the next two months is to get pictures of my new material on line.
