A wonderful art deco 1920s Native American Indian copper printing plate, letterpress featuring an Indian Warrior who just shot off an arrow in the air. The wood-backed printers block is very a rare find. Native collectors should be excited to see this unique print stamp - printing tool. For print making and etchings for magazine, newspaper or book. I inverted the copper plate to black and white which gives a good idea of what a printed image may look like. Spend considerable time trying to find a publican that may have featured this image but wasn't able to find it. Will keep looking though!
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition without any damage whatsoever. The horizontal marks you see is someone's attempt to clean it without the proper liquid. Will come off just fine with the right materials.
SIZE: Stands 7 1/2 inches x 5 1/4 inches
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, 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.
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.
