Mid-century wood and metal salt and pepper shakers. The shakers were made in Sweden but oddly the stoppers are marked as made in Denmark.
The set is in good condition and the shakers are about 4 inches tall.
Probably from the turn of the century, plus or minus a few years these oak book cases are spectacular finds. They were originally in a library in western New York, in the Finger Lakes region.
Each shelf level is removable meaning these can be easily hauled up stairs, into garret apartments or even hauled home on the bus.
The smaller unit consists of seven tiers and is 87 1/2 inches tall, 52 wide and just over 10 inches deep. $750
The larger one has nine levels and measures about 110 inches tall, 51 wide and just over 10 inches deep. $875
Of course use of one or more of the sections is optional, but due to slight variations in width the shelves are not interchangeable between the units.
1960 Drexel Declaration walnut extension dining table, model number 851-340-37. It’s the immediately recognizable ‘squished circle’ shape that declares Declaration.
We are fortunate to still have the leaves and the set is in good condition overall. There are a few small scratches, a repaired piece of veneer on one edge and a slight mark on the table top. The mark is not immediately visible, but can be see in oblique light where the texture of the surface reflects light differently. It is shown in the slide show below.
When set up with out the leaves the table is about 44 inches in diameter. Each leaf is 22 inches wide.
Vintage home-built coffee table. Made in 1960 by Mr. Woods for Mrs. Woods and now, 54 years later needs a new home. It is a neat piece, crazy long at 85 inches but then not terribly wide (21 inches max.) and the usual coffee table height of 15 inches.
Alternatively it’d make a memorable body for a bass guitar.
Who cares that you can’t play if you’ve got the biggest bass either side of the Pecos and your amps go to 11?
A flying mermaid depicting Dewi Sri. Dewi Sri is an ancient earth and mother goddess figure from which all useful plants sprung and is hence associated with success in food, fertility and the family. After the adoption of Hinduism in Indonesian in the first century AD she was meshed with the goddess Lakshmi and both represent prosperity.
She is about 18 inches long and is in great condition. I’ve no idea what the mirror and comb are about, but I’d guess that she’s a bit touchy about her beauty regimen.
Vintage GE P-647B portable AM radio. This is a pre-solid state tube model and it still works well. Once upon a time it would have been great for receiving broadcasts from the famous border stations or pirate radio.
Alas . . . those days are over (unless someone happens to have a mobile broadcast unit available).
This is in excellent condition!
