Leather clad, filled with finely shredded paper. In excellent condition and RED.
Fire engine, candy apple, sports car red.
About 22 inches in diameter, 9 1/2 inches tall. Decorated on top and in like new condition.
It there such a thing as ugly chic? Elegant ugliness?
If so this is a good candidate.
This vintage two tier side table is metal, some sort of no longer glittering brass finish over iron. It is in good condition and measures 31 1/2 inches tall. The legs curve out at the base so the foot print is bigger than the shelf area, about 18 inches deep by 18 1/2 inches wide.
I like the asymmetry of the top and the ornate curved legs, they’re very Art Nouveau inspired with a touch of the Jules Verne 20,000 leagues/ Lovecraft kraken aesthetic.
It could be a bit much, but it’s really quite nice too.

Like when I pulled this out of a box and said “Hey, that looks like the Phaistos Disc. “
Really? THAT’S the fruit* of a career in archaeology? Not fame, riches, or even a nice hat.
Just a copy** of the Phaistos Disc.
The disc is, probably, an ancient artifact of enigmatic use and origin. There’s plenty of literature, speculation and such out there so I’m not going to repeat it.
This version is about 6 inches in diameter and was probably a souvenir of a Cretan vacation.
*Ok, there is the bad back, a library of experiences, iron-clad friends from the trenches and a bad-ass meditation involving cleaning the walls of a deep 1 x 1 in alluvial soil (this is something you either understand or don’t).
**I propose this was once part of a set of four comprising the Phaistos Box Set.
Shouldn’t sail rocky seas?

This stained glass sail boat is about 19 inches tall. It is in good condition.
Wow! Two Ekornes Stressless chairs and two ottomans. This is a big find for us since they not only match but are in good condition and the adjustable glides work well too. There is a little wear on the distal ends of the arms (the worst one is pictured) but it’s not that bad.
Even though they are a matched pair we’re selling them separately.
A nice vintage cedar chest that does not bear a makers mark. It’s in good condition and measures a conveniently petite 40 1/2 inches wide, 18 deep and 23 high.
As always this chest is not suitable for use as a toy chest without proper modification.
Cool unmarked porcelain bowl with floral decorations including Persimmons. It is about 12 inches in diameter and it is in great condition. I’m not sure how old it is, I suspect at least vintage if not antique. The persimmon motif was especially popular in the 1920’s into the 1930’s and that’s a good guess for how old this is.
