Our “Pick” this week is just in today and it is a beautiful antique oak two tier plant stand. The turnings are reminiscent of the Victorian style yet the tiers are shaped with unmolded edges suggesting that is was produced after the Victorian era. This piece was most likely produced between 1890 and 1930. It is made of solid oak and appears to have been recently refinished and stained a nice Jacobean Oak color. The Tulips were looking particularly nice today, I thought everyone should see them.
Our “Pick” this week is just in. A large collection of salt and pepper shakers, many are hand painted early 20th century. They are mainly single salt or peppers so this could be a great opportunity to replace a broken heirloom or make up a set of similar styles. I have seen in this mix shakers made in Bavaria, Japan, Nippon (Early Japan) and Czechoslovakia. The group is mostly hand painted porcelain, there is some luster ware and some nice glass shakers.
TV’s Dollar a Second, the home game. This weeks “Pick” is the hard to find Dollar a Second game, based on the Jan Murray game show from the 1950’s. In this game the players preform wacky stunts for money and pay penalties for failure. The game has many parts and the instructions but I am unsure if it is complete there is no parts list in the instruction book. I am sure that it is close to complete. Also the game would have been produced between 1954-1956. Stop in soon to see this and some of our other fun collectable games
