I just bought this lovely Hudson River Valley school painting, 48” X 30” overall, from a local collection. Some years ago, all details of restoration were taken care of including a careful cleaning, restoration and revarnishing by a top gallery. Cows and sheep wander her as a still stream meanders. All is framed by lush summer greens and flowers under a blue sky with puffy white clouds. Signed in the lower left. You will not be disappointed on personal inspection. A rare opportunity for a talented piece from this school at this price.

The New Hampshire Sheraton games table, circa 1810-20’s has very curvaceous serpentine fruitwood top above a conforming flame mahogany apron. The turret corners sit on spiral reeded legs. This is a boldly outlined table with no major repair. Width 36”.

#005/6 show an exceptional pair of 19th French gilt bronze on wood candelabra with kettle bases cornered with ormolu mounts. This exciting pair demonstrates full blown French taste of the rococo. The bases have painted floral decoration (some wear). Height 30”.

#002. “Grand tour” neoclassical candlesticks, late 19th century, in alabaster or marble with brass mounts. 9” H.

#003. This set of three urns measures 6 ½” and 5 ¾”(2). Dating about 1800-20, this finely detailed English trio has both gilt and polychrome decoration of high quality. No repairs.

Also, we have this group of early 18th century French candlestick pairs with stepped hexagonal bases under baluster stems. The group to cover your dining table or your choice of pairs. 9” H.

May I answer further questions or provide more detailed images? We are eager to hear your specific requests.

Best regards and thanks
