Gabriel and his horn By Susan Gregg
Gabriel is an Archangel and his is often depicted with a horn.
Here is an excerpt from my book The Encyclopedia of Angels about Gabriel:
Gabriel has the ability to grant wishes, bring joy, unveil divine mysteries, reveal truth and grant justice.
Gabriel can protect you from violent weather and make your travel easy and
Gabriel stands in the presence of God and is one of the two highest ranking angels. He is a messenger whose
symbol is the trumpet. Gabriel buried Moses and dictated the Koran to the
prophet Mohammed. He announced the birth of John the Baptist to the world and
told Mary she would give birth to Jesus. Gabriel brings a message of hope to
mankind. He reminds everyone of the importance of loving one another. He
encourages unity and oneness. He brings mercy, forgiveness, change and
Gabriel is associated with the moon. He often makes his presence known with a flash of silver light. He also
rules the element of water and is associated with the direction of the west. He
helps with intuitive insights, herbal medicine and women’s menstrual cycles.
Gabriel also chooses which souls will be born. He spends nine months with the
baby’s spirit, helping the spirit adjust to the exciting journey of life on
earth. When the child is born, he causes the child to forget the secrets of
heaven by pressing his finger below the baby’s nose. This creates the cleft in
a human’s upper lip.
Gabriel’s voice will fill you with
peace and joy. When you see moonlight streaming into your home, know Gabriel is
there, willing to bless you with his presence.
A simple request is all Gabriel
requires. “Gabriel I ask for your guidance and assistance. Please help me
[explain your needs]. I give thanks for your love and for being in my life.”

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.
