As a small company, with stores based out of Colorado Springs and Washington DC, it was "all hands on deck" when we decided to bring our unique Americana to the heart of Dallas. We've always been drawn to the Texan market, and our clients rave about the way our Americana collection fits well with the Texan aesthetic.

Located in the pristine Highland Park Village shopping center, the pop-up shop is packed full of one-of-a-kind Americana, representative of our dedication to antiques and history. Take a look at some of the exquisite offerings available at the pop-up, now until December 31st! Shop rare books, flags, autograph pieces, antique maps, war bond posters, and more!

The Federalist Papers 

 The Federalist by Publius, Rare Second Edition, Two Volumes

 

What screams “American pride” more than a copy of The Federalist? Take home this exceedingly rare second edition copy of the most influential work of American political thought ever recorded. “The Federalist” comprises the collected printing of the eighty-five seminal essays written in defense of the newly-drafted Constitution, composed by John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. The second edition is notable for the addition of the federal constitution and the first eleven amendments, and a series of articles written by Hamilton under the pseudonym "Pacificus," defending Washington's "Neutrality Proclamation" of 1793 regarding the Anglo-French war. It is arguably the most complete edition, and the only other English language edition issued in Hamilton's lifetime.



The Lone-Star Flag

 Texas State Flag, Annin Flag Company, Circa 1930's

 

Would it be a Texas pop-up without a Texas flag? This Texas State Flag by the Annin Flag Company is from the 1930’s and is elegantly displayed in a custom-built frame. The state flag is often referred to as the “Lone-Star Flag” for its single star displayed in the center of the canton. The flag was first introduced when the Republic of Texas was established in 1838. Even still, this flag stands as a symbol of Texan pride to this day.



George Washington and Abraham Lincoln Collage

 George Washington and Abraham Lincoln Autographed Collage

 

An absolutely stunning piece, this collage celebrates two of our country’s greatest leaders and political minds; George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The collage includes two striking etchings of these presidents, along with authentic autographs artfully displayed together at center in an inset window with gold beaded fillet.


The George Washington signature features a large and boldly signed autograph. It is a conclusion of a manuscript letter, penned “I am Sir, Your most obedient” and signed “G. Washington”. Beneath the bold signature, and in another hand, reads: “The Signature of the Father of his Country was made/ in July 1778.-/ Portsmouth April 1818” and signed in pencil “Joseph T. Canon.” Below the Washington signature is an autographed signed note by Abraham Lincoln. The note reads, in full: "Sec. of War, please see Col. Barret, and see if you can not agree with him about taking his Cavalry Reg't to Kansas & the Indian frontier." The note is signed at bottom right “A. Lincoln” and dated at bottom left “Oct. 10, 1861.” The elements are presented in a custom hand-built black and gold wooden frame, framed according to the highest conservation standards.
