Here's What's New!

We’ve got new goodies! Check out our brief list of new-in pieces that just hit the shelves (or walls). We are constantly buying new pieces; we search auction records, do our research on market trends, and find the best prices to antique treasures. After pieces are purchased, we send them off to get framed. Most pieces are ready to be framed individually, while others are paired with different piece to create custom collages. Then, after all conservation and archival framing is complete, the works come to us, here at the shop, to be priced and hung in our gallery space. Take a look at some of our favorite new additions on this week’s blog!


American Hand-Carved Matched Set of Architectural Eagles


 


These eagles are a show-stopping piece. The pair was originally designed in the late 19th century to be mounted over doorways or between columns. Each eagle is displayed with wings fully extended, with heads turned outwards. The eagles grasp an olive branch and have been hand-gilded, which only serves to highlight the intricate carving.



"Four Freedoms" Complete Set of Vintage Norman Rockwell Posters



Each of these four War Bonds posters by Norman Rockwell is a visual representation of the closing remarks of President Roosevelt's 1941 State of the Union speech. Delivered to Congress on January 6, 1941, Roosevelt painted his vision for a post-war world, one in which every human was guaranteed basic freedoms.
