As usual, 1st Dibs has a huge selection of fabulous new pieces. Here are some of my favorites:
Glam pair of french cobra sconces
Pair of French brass sconces in form of a cobra, newly electrified with vintage metal shades. Converted from candle sconces. This pair would look amazing on either side of a door or a large bookshelf.

late 20th century
Ceremonial feather hat worn by Fon(kings) and senior dignitaries in various kingdoms of the Grassfields region of Cameroon. Originally the coloration of this kind of hat was more subdued and its construction allowed folding in for storage. Later on the colors became more vivid and the construction more rigid. It makes a wonderful and easy to use decorative element. I love hanging these on walls to add a textural element to the room. The feathers and the color are fun and bring a bit of whimsy as well.
A pair of porcelain elephant lamps
A majestic pair of Italian ceramic elephant busts that have been mounted on acrylic
bases and wired as lamps….Funky and fabulous!
Beautiful Swedish Rococo Writing Desk
Period Swedish rococo writing desk, circa 1760, with original hardware and secondary blue paint. Three drawers in the bowed front with a smaller drawer just under the drop leaf. The interior features two banks of three drawers on either side, as well as other drawers and compartments. Original bun feet. This desk is similar to a secretary I purchased for a client ( you can see it in my portfolio). I can’t tell you how many requests? comments I get on that piece.
Attributed to Howard & Co., Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
The imposing size suggests that this Ox Weathervane was made on commission for a large barn. It is perhaps the largest example by Howard & Co. known to date. It is an exceptional piece based on its sculptural form, size, and virtually untouched condition. I love the way the colors fade on this piece. Measurements: height: 22 1/2 depth: 6 7/8 width/length: 35 in.
A collection of herbiers from the 1900’s. The color preservation is out of this world… they are quite spectacular, but it person they are even more magnificent.

Pair of branch coral lamps on coquina stone bases
Late 20th C.
