Some specific categories of products we are always interested in offering our clients are:
- Romantic bronze sculpture c. 1860-1910. Only the best of the period is interesting to us so the detailing must be exquisite, the casting absolutely flawless, the patina original and in excellent condition. Naturally the sculpture must be signed, but it also must be executed during the lifetime of the artist except in certain situations where the sculpture is of such high quality that it's posthumous casting is not important to collectors. We also prefer that the sculpture be foundry marked, but that is not always the case with these sculptures.
- Animalier bronze sculpture c. 1860-1910
- Art Nouveau sculpture of the quality and requirements described above
- Art Deco sculpture is also considered on a case by case basis
- French furnishings c. 1750-1910 - this is a broad range, but we've found that the French taste has a passionate following within all years of circulation. We are almost exclusively looking for pieces of the French Empire, Louis XV, Louis XVI and Directoire styles - Provincial forms are considered only on a case by case basis. Please note that due to Pennsylvania upholstery law, we are required to sterlize all upholstery which may result in damage to the fabric.
- American furniture of the Federal and Chippendale periods c. 1750-1830. Only unaltered and fully original pieces are considered. Minor changes like brasses or a single foot/backboard/element are generally acceptable.
- English furniture of the Chippendale, Georgian and Regency periods c. 1740-1830. Only pristine condition pieces of "high style" are considered.
- Romantic era oil paintings, particularly Dutch and French paintings of the Barbizon School.
- Heriz and Serapi rugs c. 1880-1910. These must be in pristine condition with only minor damage or wear, no staining or alterations.
