I found the design originally in a dress shop, a kind of display mirror with hats hanging on. I just loved the design so much we decided to make if for our own inventory. It is a dark mahogany grain wood with lots of interesting step work. Look closely at the photos and you can see the zig-zag affect going on throughout this piece. Then to really add some personalty we tried to re-create the original bakelite stepped hooks using wood with a very special treatment. It looks slightly brighter in the photos then in real life, but think butterscotch bakelite. You can hang it as an entry piece or in a bedroom. Super duper gary cooper!

Outrageous design and great quality. Take a moment and study these photos, lots of details. First, there is this wonderful two-tier light assembly, if you look up, its like those huge chandeliers' you might see hanging from a classic art deco movie theater ceiling. A kind of stepped flowery lily treatment. If that is not enough, you have this wonderful metalwork, combining both a cubist feeling, as indicated in the canopy and sub canopy and this wonderful bronzy metal cut-out on the bottom portion and also on the inside glass slats. You could add chain to be able to hang this for any height or you could use only a single canopy and do a flush ceiling mount treatment. Either way would look fantastic. The two tone slag panels fit perfectly and are secured with small supports inside the metal panels. This is a quality fixture that certainly was constructed originally with great. It is in perfect condition. measurements:40" drop x 32" w

French Art Deco Egyptian Dancer In Bronze Signed Janle! http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064904/Antique-French-Art-Deco-Egyptian-dancer-in-bronze-signed-Janle- This classic tall art deco egyptian dancer has all the accoutrement one would expect from a wonderfully rendered bronze of this period. Janle is an artist most closely associated with max le verrier where some of his work was executed at that foundry.

Very Rare Charles Catteau Art Deco Pelican Vase http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064937/Antique-Very-Rare-Charles-Catteau-Art-Deco-Pelican-Vase An extremely rare boch belgian cloisonné animal piece. It is very special these days to even have the opportunity buy something as unusual as this perfect catteau vase. This is certainly a collectors piece! As you might know, the "animal" decorative vases completed during the tenure of charles catteau are the most sought after of all the boch pieces that were produced between 1920 and 1945. . The substantial piece stands 14.5 tall, a classic boch shape, about 26" in diameter. This is a stunning design, showing the classic pelican in many different positions. I have personally photographed pelicans many times (i live across from a bird sanctuary and these caricatures are spot on). I have only seen this piece once before, in a book. There have been some catalogues and books done specifically on these collections showing animals portrayed in many studied classic positions. Hopefully this will find its way into the right home or collection. It bears the circular stamp "boch freres la louviere".Measurements:14.5" t x 26" diameter

Spectacular Art Deco 3 Piece Settee With Club Chairs In Art Deco Fabric http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064944/Antique-Spectacular-Art-Deco-3-piece-Settee-with-club-chairs-in-Art-Deco-fabric Spectacular art deco 3 piece settee with club chairs in art deco fabric this is a wonderful 3 piece set i've been holding back for years. Well i've finally decided to restore it. We have been selling upholstered furniture extremely well in the last year, we just do not keep these wonderful suites around. This 3 piece set originated from england, oh you should have seen the fabric we took off, some kind of tapestry with a rather victorian point of view ugh! We've done our little magic, all new foundations, restored the wood, tight cushions and of course we've utilized the last of this wonderful circular tone on tone art deco fabric. It is enhanced with a beautiful golden ultra-suede and the combination is a knock out! Have i said anything about the comfort? I think our upholster has figured it all out and it is great! Normally the chairs are always more comfortable then the sofas, but this sofa feels just as good as the chairs. Hey enough talk, come on down and take it for test drive, i think you will see what i mean. Feels great! Measurements:sofa 58" w x 31" d x 31" t chair 31" x 31" x 31"

Original Watercolor, On Paper Of Josephine Baker French Circa 1934 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064953/Antique-Original-watercolor--on-paper-of-Josephine-Baker-French-circa-1934 This is a wonderful original painting executed by the school of paris painter boris solotareff (whose work is in the permanent collection of new york's metropolitan museum of art, among others). He went to paris in the early 1920âs and associated himself with famous people in the theater (in one catalogue there is an illustration of a portrait of igor stravinsky that he painted). Many of his works executed in paris were of people in the theater, famous opera singers, dancers, directors and pianists of that time. This beautiful watercolor executed in a manner so calming with the soft brown skin tones the red ruby lips that are so soothing, revealing the true beauty of josephine baker off the stage.According to josephine baker's son, jean-claude baker, this portrait was done around the time josephine shot the movie "zou zou," a personal favorite movie of josephine's. A floral corsage accents an asymmetrical background in this pensive and dramatic "petit maitre" portrait of josephine baker. On the back there is also another line drawing with the estate stamp of the artist boris solotareff. Provenance: estate of louise bauer parry, 1986 private collection.

Original French Art Deco Screen With Mural Image Of Diana By G. Icart http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064961/Antique-Original-French-Art-Deco-Screen-with-mural-image-of-Diana-by-G--Icart Wow, wow wow. Very nice and original painting by french artist g. Icart (famous unusual name icart, maybe a relative of louis icart?) and signed in the lower left corner. This is a wonderful example of classic art deco. This original mural features the mythical image of diana the huntress, with her bow and arrow riding a glorious classical white unicorn. Running through the allegorical forest with vibrant foliage abound.The piece was purchased in france. It is very well made, even the insides of all panels are painted to match the design, so however you might hang, stand or portray this wonderful painting, it will look great. I think it spent a lot of time closed up so the colors are all still vibrant with depth. The back side (or the frame) even has this wonderful art deco paper or painting as well. Circa 1930's in excellent original condition, its age shows very well.

Outstanding Original French Art Deco Copper/bronze Icicle Chandelier http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064984/Antique-Outstanding-original-French-Art-Deco-copper-bronze-icicle-chandelier It is amazing what you find sometimes when you take your time and really clean these old fixtures up. This is a piece i bought thinking i would have it all re-plated. We took some time and with a lot of elbow grease, underneath the aged patina, we found this most fantastic copper color. You can see for yourself this combination of brass and copper. What a nice warm look. Beautiful solid wood center rail with 6 matching stylized deco leave pattern arms. On top of each arm is this sculptural figure and profile of an art deco stylized nude woman feeding her friendly gazelle. This is a special piece, there are some numbers on the metal, but you can tell it was not designed for the masses. The glass is also very interesting a nice opalescent color which is also referred to as icicle glass because it looks like ice is frozen with its contrasting clear and frosted technique. A very nice original piece.Measurements:33" drop x 33" w

Unique Ultra Art Deco Bar And Armoire With Spectacular Wood http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064986/Antique-Unique-Ultra-Art-Deco-Bar-and-Armoire-with-Spectacular-wood This must have been a custom made piece for some wealthy benefactor. Look at the wood, both inside and out. I've never seen so much attention to detail. Great style. On the outside, straight grain panels which had the cabinet makers complete attention to detail. This bisecting - intersecting straight grain (mahogany) wood is placed with such detail it looks like some that jean michel frank might have done. The piece was purchased in argentina where it is said he had a workshop and produced pieces that have been found there. So now that you've got past the front doors, open her up and look at the stunning maple style cloud burst wood. Normally you never see this kind of attention to the inside of a piece of furniture, only to the outside. Drawers, glass rails made of wood and not of metal. Some adjustable shelving and this stunning piece of furniture sits on a plinth style base to help accentuate the shape of the wood and the front design. I think i've said enough, let the photos speak for themselves. Measurements:51.5" w x 63.5" t x 18"

Art Deco Theater Sconces Cubist And Unique http://www.antiques.com/classified/1064994/Antique-Art-Deco-Theater-Sconces-Cubist-and-Unique Wonderful and original art deco theater sconces. These were brought to me from a client here in sf, said she had them in storage for over 20 years and has never been able to use them. Anyone out there can use then? They are in perfect original condition. That creamy milk glass from the period with all this great zig zag, cubist metalwork. The metal work is in black but there is this wonderful kind of chinese red metal rosette at the bottom. It all sets it all off! They are stunning and large. Would be great for someone doing one of those "home theater and entertainment rooms". Try to keep it real with these! I never did find out which theater, but obviously something modern and very stylized considering the cubist look of these. Each fixture holds 4 bulbs so you could get a lot of light. I recommend putting them on a dimmer and keep the light low, everything looks better that way!Measurements:24.5"t x 13.5" w x 7.5" b w x 8" d

Bronze Javelin Thrower By A. P. Hugonnet French 1930s http://www.antiques.com/classified/1065050/Antique-Bronze-Javelin-Thrower-by-A--P--Hugonnet-French-1930s A wonderful and very large original bronze by a. P. Hugonnet. Obviously depicting the classic javelin thrower. This is very well designed and quite an intense figure. Look at his face, look at his hands, lots of details. You know so many of these classic athletic poses were inspired by the 1924 paris olympics which served as a great breeding ground to influence the designs by many artists of these stylized male statues during this time. Our man here may have been fashioned after one of the great javelin athletes competing in paris during 1924. Unfortunatley the original base was broken, but we were able to make a replica of the original (with two pieces in a stepped affect) and used a piece of back marble with his original signature, taken from the original base. As you can see, some time was spent to artistically inlay this into the new base. It is stamped "bronze" on the figure and is a very impressive piece. Measurements: 29" w x 15" t x 8" d

Sweet Art Nouveau To Art Deco Wmf Silver-plate Oil-vinegar Cruets Circa 1920 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1065099/Antique-Sweet-Art-Nouveau-to-Art-Deco-WMF-silver-plate-oil-vinegar-cruets-circa-1920 It is always a treat to find something special like this. Not our typical art deco point of view, but i love to show this transition between art nouveau to art deco. Wmf a german silver company was probably one of the best at doing this. They were so active during both of these periods and when you look at their pieces you can see the decorative design periods in the most obvious and refined way. What is also nice about this piece, it is in perfect original condition. The glass (crystal) is perfect on each piece, not a chip. I assume it was never used, probably a wedding gift that got tucked away somewhere. Also, very nice, we have the original advertisement from the wmf catalogue book.

Outstanding French Bronze Art Deco Sculpture By Claire Colinet http://www.antiques.com/classified/1065110/Antique-Outstanding-French-bronze-Art-Deco-sculpture-by-Claire-Colinet This is a fabulous bronze, so rich in detail, design and beauty. Maybe one of the finest examples of bronze art we ever offered. The name is "la danseuse de thebes" circa 1925 and this rather sexy woman is portrayed with all the trappings of an art deco theban dancer (or egyptian dancer). There is even a bronze hieroglyphics on the front of the piece, maybe heavily influenced by the discovery of tutankhamun circa 1922. I think i might have known this woman in another life time ( which goes with the egyptian mythology anyhow). The piece was executed by claire jeanne roberte godchaux colinet, listed in benzoit, an extraordinary piece so please take a moment to look at the details of the folds in the dress, the necklace and hand beading throughout. It is also just as remarkable from the front as from the back. The dress has a faint cold painted gold gilt with stands away from the nickeled bronze beauty of her body. This piece will certainly takes your breath away. This piece previously sold at christies in janary 2008 at the time for 7000 gbp which roughly translates to about $13,500 dollars, so keep in mind this is not for the light hearted and light pockets!
