One of two wonderful Paul Iribe (1888 - 1935) advertising illustrations c. 30's for the French Winery Nicolas published in 1930 and 1931 at the presses of Draeger Freres. This is a slight departure from the all-out wine ads. This couple, dressed for a wedding are standing before an alter of cocktail shakers. It speaks to the virtues of the pleasantries of wine versus the worship of, and dangers of hard liquor and alcoholism. This images bring back memories of The Days of Wine and Roses with Jack Lemon and Lee Remick, a couple destroyed by their love of drinking. Professionally and elegantly framed in a wood, gold gilt frame. Signed in the plate. Shipping includes insurance and tracking.
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away - Picasso
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it, art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever.A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
