Glamorous Roaring 20s opulence complete 6 piece set for entertaining of the highly sought after, jazz age art deco 1929 silver plate Community Deauville pattern which includes a coffee pot, lidded sugar, milk / cream jug, tray, candle holders and salt and pepper. This is a very rare set and as complete as it comes for a beautiful table setting for special events, holidays and dinner parties with 9 pieces counted individually. Clearly signed on the bottom of each piece, with the larger ones marked COMMUNITY PLATE with hallmarks, Deauville Pattern and silver plate marks. looks like maybe 8m of silver on the right. Many pieces & heavy will go in 2 boxes most likely and courier shipping includes insurance and tracking.
CONDITION: They are in dire need of a good cleaning as they've been sitting for some time. The first photos show what this set looks like clean up and a few at the end show its coppery tone (exaggerated.) They will clean up great, but do expect some normal signs of age (almost 100 yr old set) some light scratches, marks with no dents, monogram or silver loss. I do not clean silver because it could be some time before they sell and it would have to be done all over again. The inside of the pieces are nice and clean.
SIZE: Coffee pot is 10 1/2 inches tall, creamer/milk jug is 5 7/8 inches, lidded sugar is 5 1/2 inches and the serving tray which can be used as a platter is approx. 19 inches by 11 1/2 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.
