Vintage art deco period c. 1920's Bela Kadar Kádár, Béla ( Hungary 1877 - 1956) signed nude lady on horse ink or india ink drawing. The subject matter is very provocative and erotic and features a nude woman on a rearing horse. Both are in a frenetic and powerful pose. The drawing is signed in the lower right hand corner, as well as on the back of the art work there is a faint stamp with "Atelier" - Studio. Recorded sales results for 2004 - 2205 in ink with similar subject matter and size are between $1300 - $2200. This work was purchased from the Dov Hazan Auctioneer at the Tiroche Auction House outside of Tel Aviv, Israel. I comes from the estate of an Ex-Patriot Hungarian couple who moved to Israel in 1952 - 53 just before the Hungarian Revolution.

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
From the first time I watched 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. 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.
