Rare Finds

Nothing does more for the adrenaline then going on a pick or showing up at an auction and seeing that rare, old, item that is rarely seen for sale.  We attended an auction not long ago, where most of the items came out of museums or had been property of the historical society.  That stuff was incredibly rare and incredibly cool.  We picked up a vintage Coke clock that had very limited circulation and had great color.  We sold it to a young collector in less than 24 hours. When we do find those items, they will be posted here (unless Melinda decides to hang on to it "for a while".

Antique Hearth / Fireplace Cast Iron Owl Andirons W/ Orange Glass Eyes

You want something cool for your fireplace or hearth? These are COOL! Cast iron owls stand 13" tall. Stand extends 17" from the front of each owl to the back. Heavy, solid, complete. This pair of owls is in great shape. Coolest feature are the orange glass marble eyes that flicker when the fire is lit behind them. They spring to life as you enjoy your cozy fire. Rare to find a set that isn't missing at least one eye. Eyes are in great condition with only very tiny flaws that appear to be scratches and not chips on one owl.. Conversation piece, cool decorative items, functional. Quite a set! One owl does have a small pin point hole thru the casting. Too small to make out in the photos.

Vintage Black Wood and Brass Storage Box Chest (Cremation Box?)

This is an interesting old box. Made out of heavy black painted wood with brass accents it measures 20" Long X 13" High X 11" Wide. It is lined with maroon velvet fabric, brass fittings on the corners, brass accents on the lid and hinged handles on both ends. Ornately carved swirls and leaf patterns in also has a fleur de lis pattern on the lid and sides. As an antique dealer, I've never seen anything quite like it. I've had other dealers look at it and it appears to be either a cremation box, pet casket or simply a very ornate strong box or chest. I can not state definitively what it's original purpose was. I do know that it is really interesting, heavy and solid. Shows normal wear and a piece of the front latch appears to be missing. Would be a gorgeous decorative item.

Vintage German Bronze Balance Scales

Very nice set of balance scales. Body is bronze, trays are crystal glass and both have stickers that state "made in Western Germany", attributing to the fact that these were made prior to the fall of communism in Germany. Scales work beautifully. Halfway down a crystal is supported by two cherubs. One small support ring is missing as documented in the photo. it appears that there may have been small crystals hanging from the base at one point, due to there being holes in the petals that make up part of the base. I've seen others and they didn't have crystals either so I'm not completely sure. The tip of one petal in the back of the scales has been broken off. Marble base is intact with no cracks or discoloration. All six chains are present. Terrific office item or decorative piece!
