1st Dibs – Wednesday’s Picks

In the midst of moving I am taking a break to bring you my picks. Happy Shopping!

Morocco Early 20th Century. Brass Moroccan Lantern with Colored Glass. All Original

This is stunning! We created a moroccan home theater for a client and spent hours and hours pouring over websites to find the perfect chandelier- this one fits the bill!


An austere pair of end tables in the Directoire style, comprising a Carrara marble top and lower shelf resting within a brass X-framed base. By Maison Jansen. Italian, circa 1960.

These would look fabulous next to a deep teal linen velvet tufted back sofa.


Italy, 1950’s.

Italian Sciolari chandelier with individual “jewel” like crystals surrounded by individual bras circles. Multiple tiers and sizes of crystals. Great large scale.

I would love to see this jewel like chandelier above a master craft dining table. I would give the walls a high gloss lacquer so light bounced off of every surface. A dining room fit for Madonna.


France 1950’s. Pair of Maison Jansen X Base Benches.

I would reupholster the seats in a textural fabric and place in front of the fireplace in a client’s master bedroom.


England circa 1940. Ebonized two-drawer campaign desk with nickel plated fittings on sawhorse legs with leather top and greek key inlay.

Sentimento, oh I how I love you. This piece is perfect and works with any design.


Late 19th / Early 20th Century
Pair of Chinese Famille Rose Porcelain Vases, Late 19th / Early 20th Century. Newly Wired as Lamps to U.S. Electrical Code with Double Swivel Light Cluster and Adjustable Finials; Mounted on Giltwood Bases.

These are stunning. I love the bright pops of orange with hot pink.


A really fun wing chair. Restored in a Van Dyke finish on the legs and upholstered in an off white tussah silk.

A tribute to Tim Burton at the MOMA and “Alice in Wonderland” which comes out this weekend. The perfect chair for the Queen!


20th century
Exceptional pair of inlaid shell armchairs with beautifully upholstered seats.


Circa 1810
A graceful English regency ebonized and parcel-gilt armchair with caned seat and back; conforming loose cushion


Belgium 20th century.
Brand new but made with vintage leather for that broken in softness. Vintage nail tacks add the finishing touch. This club chair works with a variety of other pieces. Beautiful!


C. 1890
Beautifully gilded Louis Philippe mirror with original mercury glass. The glass has wonderful foxing through out and the glass sparkles with the mercury. Beautiful patina on the gilding and an original old wood back.
