PICK UP IN ONTARIO CANADA ONLY: fantastic rare 1980's Art Shoppe hand carved and colored Rosewood Asian Ming-style large square living room, family room, den or library low coffee table. The table has four divided panels with nature scenes in each and thick rounded legs. The table is extremely heavy - its is solid wood throughout and I will have to get a photo of the surface when I have help. I have been moving this table from one house to another, where I am now is just too small for the large square table. It is a style that was popular for different uses. Long gone now, I had the hutch and octagonal glass table with the same motive on the base and chairs.
CONDITION: In vintage used condition. There is no real damage and no repairs. There are bumps and bruises from normal use as would be expected. There is a small section on one side where the veneer is a rubbed off a bit. Can certainly be mended easily with a furniture / hardwood floor pen but not my place to do it and don't want to appear like I'm trying to hide anything. Price reflects these small flaws & that it will have be be picked up.

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.
