Arts & Crafts Hat Stand SOLD F964

We jumped at this one. Just gorgeous. It's been used its whole life, and it's ready for more. If you're wondering about the screw holes, those were ill-advised "additions". We just weren't having it. Price on request.

Monterey Decorated Twin Bed 1933 SOLD F960

Monterey Style Corner Hutch SOLD F957

The three tiers rising in rapid diminishment and the great carpentry work in the detailing make this unusual and decorative hutch particularly attractive. We're actually rather taken with the mixture of wrought iron and brass in the hardware. Price on request.

British beers and ales: you pledge allegiance to them or you don't, and if you know better than to call football soccer, chances are you are passionate about your brand of brew.

Arthur J. Packard Porcelain Enamel Sign AP417 SOLD

A real mystery sign. Large and with many years of wear. Circa 1915-1930. The script is in the style of the famous Packard Motor Car company. Yet the only reference to an Arthur J.

Paul Wunderlich 1972 Munich Olympics Poster AP416

"Far out" best describes the posters commissioned by the organizers of the 1972 Munich summer games, with a huge diversity of artists and styles enlisted to convey the Olympic message in graphics.

Lawrence of Arabia Independent Art House Poster in B & W AP402 SOLD

Impossible to date or place, we have never seen another like it. The style is impeccably 1960s, almost certainly as a further hommage to this towering classic of world cinema.
