Here’s Your Chance to Own It!

We’ve just received several great pieces – ones you have always wanted – and storage-minded-downsizers – this means you, too!

Here’s your chance to own a beautiful Pennsylvania c. 1810 TALL highboy dresser like the ones you often see on Antiques Roadshow!

This beautiful cherry bedroom piece is a real heirloom and is ready to hold your socks, undies and sweaters or have a place of distinction in a living room to store linens, paper materials or any modern item you might want out of sight.  $1095.

Note the inlaid work where a key would have locked the drawers. Hardware is placed below center, typical of this early 1800’s East Coast location.

Have you been looking for pieces for your lovely collections?  We also have two beautiful mahogany curio cases, both designed for small spaces.  $1295 each.

This cute corner piece has three glass shelves plus the bottom with plenty of glass on three sides to let in the light.  Inlaid trim sets off these elegant lines.  Don’t let a tiny corner go to waste in your small rooms!

 

 

 

 

This larger curio cabinet is stately but delicate with mirrored backing, glass shelves and a secret compartment beyond the inlaid patterned lower doors.  Glass on three sides assures maximum display enjoyment!

(This is a rich, darker mahogany than the photo shows.)

Come see us today – these pieces won’t last long!

Scroll down our pages here to see what’s new for the season in the shop – our old dark purple lilac tree is in full bloom this weekend!  And the shop is filled with our White Lilac soap from Paris for the occasion of the lilacs in bloom.

Our “Blanc Lila” or White Lilac soap has arrived from Paris, just days ahead of our real blooms (which are just waiting for some warm rays!). Lovely, embossed and super fragrant, beautifully packaged. $4.95-$14.95
