Best of August 2013: Antique Inspirations

We explored vintage and antique inspirations in our August blog posts, from groovy vintage clothing to antique spinning wheels. Every day is full of antique inspirations here at the EuroLuxAntiques.com gallery of course, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Whether I’m unpacking a new container of hand-picked treasures from Europe or chatting with clients on the phone about how a piece of antique furniture would fit in their home decor, I reckon I’ve got the best job on the planet. It’s even better when clients send us photos showing their purchases in their new homes! Let’s revisit some of our most popular August posts.

Antique inspirations in our client's French Renaissance kitchen.  Chairs from EuroLuxAntiques.comBob H. sent us a bunch of photos of his amazing chateau style home in Prairie Grove, Illinois, complete with suits of armor! Bob bought a set of ten Renaissance chairs dating to 1900 from us and also a Renaissance buffet server. The chairs were upholstered in leather and carved in walnut, and Bob had a dining table custom-made to match the chairs, right down to the details on the antique chair stretchers. His medieval and Renaissance themed decor is full of antique inspirations and it’s not surprising that his beautifully designed home stars on an annual housewalk. Our Renaissance style furniture client spotlight on Bob’s home will show you why!

Antique inspirations in this reproduction Console Table from EuroLuxAntiques.com, in our client's hallwayIn my spotlight on console tables, I shared my tips on how to choose and use a console table. This was inspired by our client Elizabeth in San Francisco, CA, who was faced with a tricky choice of which console table to choose from our gallery. She has a long, narrow hallway and she couldn’t decide between three equally lovely tables. Which would look best in the space? Elizabeth finally opted for this high-quality reproduction console table in an antique French style, as you can see in the photo. The streamlined silhouette on the hand-waxed and distressed table looks perfect in Elizabeth’s hallway, in my opinion!

 

Sell antiques at auctionWe receive very many emails from people asking how to sell their antiques or vintage items. Often they don’t know how to start figuring out what their antique is worth and then how to go about selling it. So I wrote a post to help them! The post How to Sell Antiques and Vintage Items gives tips on various ways to find out a value for your antiques. It also describes ways you can sell your items locally or via an online site.

Antique inspirations in Dale Tiffany lamps at EuroLuxAntiques.comWe are delighted to offer Dale Tiffany lamps and light fixtures in the gallery. These gorgeous hand-made stained glass lamps are truly antique inspirations!  Many of the intricate glass mosaics on the shades exactly replicate the original designs of Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps from over a century ago. Others are inspired by antique Tiffany lamps, and they are all crafted with the glass techniques pioneered by Tiffany. I know how much artistry goes into creating each unique Dale Tiffany lamp, so I was pleased to see a new video showing how the lamps are crafted. You can watch the short video or just read a summary in my post on Dale Tiffany lamps.

What have been your antique inspirations this month? Tell us about it in the comments box below.

Client Spotlight: Renaissance Chairs and Buffet in Chateau Home, Illinois

Antique French Renaissance Chairs from EuroLuxAntiques.comBob H. in Prairie Grove, Illinois, found us on One Kings Lane. His neighbor (who is a designer) saw our set of ten antique Renaissance chairs with rich buttery leather upholstery. She thought the wonderful aged patina on the leather looked like an old football! She also thought the Renaissance chairs dating to 1900 would be perfect for Bob’s French Renaissance chateau style home, inspired by European castles.

French Renaissance Chairs from EuroLuxAntiques.comBob wanted a table with legs that exactly matched the Renaissance chairs, so he had one custom designed by Amish craftsmen at Valley View Oak. The custom table is solid walnut to match the chairs and Bob had the stretchers under the table matched to the chair stretchers too. The Renaissance chairs and table ensemble does look fantastic in his open kitchen. If you turn around with your back facing the edge of the table, the kitchen opens into the great room.

Antique French Renaissance Buffet from EuroLuxAntiques.comBob is especially fascinated by medieval and Renaissance armor and weaponry and has quite a collection. I know this interest drew him to the beautiful marble-top French Renaissance buffet on our website, carved with a knight on horseback.

Bob’s designer neighbor helped him find the perfect spot in his home for the buffet. It now lives in a large, wide hallway that connects the great room to the entry foyer.

Bob decorated the buffet with a vintage Lladro Spanish porcelain figure of a pharmacist as that has been his profession for 30 years. He continued the apothecary theme with antique mortar and pestle sets.

Antique armor in our client's home. EuroLuxAntiques.comThis suit of armor in his entry hallway is a perfect accent to the foyer’s marble floor and curved oak staircase. The suit of armor is an early 20th century reproduction, although the rapier sword with the suit is an original from the 17th century. One expert offered Bob a substantial sum for the rapier sword alone, but Bob decided he wanted to keep it with the armor.

 

 

 

 

French Renaissance Living RoomBob’s great room, adjoining the open kitchen, has a dramatic baronial feel, with its two-story high windows and stone fireplace and more suits of armor! Bob’s collection also includes 16th century carved bone powder horns that were used to contain gunpowder. “One of these has a knight in a suit of armor with a coat of arms and various swords carved on it,” says Bob. “The other has a knight on a horse hunting a wild boar.”

Bob’s home is truly original and such a thoughtful reflection of his personality and interests. So it’s no surprise that it is featured in Crystal Lake’s 39th Annual Housewalk on September 27, 2013. You can see the exterior of the Hurley Residence in McHenry Country Living’s Housewalk preview. A big thank you to Bob for letting us take our own mini-tour of his fabulous home!

If you enjoy this decor style as much as we do, you can browse in our EuroLuxHome.com online gallery for French Renaissance chairs, buffets, and other furniture currently in our inventory.

UPDATE: Bob later sent us a mural he had created, based on the knight carvings on the antique buffet. See the photo in our Renaissance Mural post!

How to Sell Antiques and Vintage Items

We receive emails nearly every day from people asking how to sell antiques or vintage items. Sometimes they have inherited antiques, sometimes they are just downsizing or have another reason to let go of a piece of furniture or other antique that they have enjoyed for years. Either way, they aren’t sure where to start. So here is our advice on how to sell antiques.

How To Find Out What Your Antiques Are Worth

How to sell items like this Antique Delft JarA great place to begin searching for values of antique or vintage items is Worthpoint.com. Of course, you can also explore sites where people sell antiques online, like Ebay. But Ebay only shows the last 30 to 45 days of data whereas Worthpoint has a huge database. It stores many years’ worth of information from ecommerce venues like Ebay and GoAntiques.com as well as other important auction houses.

Worthpoint is definitely worth the price for unlimited access for 30 days if you have specialty items or many things to look up. If you want to try it out first, Worthpoint offers a free trial period for a limited number of searches. You can also send a description and photos of your item to a “Worthologist” to get an expert online appraisal for a fee of $29.99, which is very economical.

I suggest the Worthpoint.com appraisal service because you’re unlikely to find an antiques dealer to give you a free appraisal. Dealers receive so many requests for free appraisals and although they are lovely folk, if they spent all day helping people with advice they would never have time to run their own businesses! So if you want to sell antiques but don’t know how to price them and don’t have time to research values, it’s well worth paying for the service of an expert appraiser.

If you are handling the estate of a relative, you may want to hire a licensed personal property appraiser in your area. Or you can contact a local auction house to help you determine the value of items. If you have rare or especially valuable antiques, you might want to find a specialty auction house. For instance, you would go to Theriaults for dolls.

How to Sell Antiques Online or Locally

Sell antiques at auctionObviously you can sell antiques through a local or specialty auction house. Or you can list things for sale on Ebay or GoAntiques or Etsy. You can even post an ad for free through your local Craigslist. You might also contact interior designers in your area to see if they could place a piece of antique or vintage furniture with one of their clients.

How to sell antiques like this Louis XIV ArmoireYou could also contact antique dealers in your area to see if they are interested in purchasing a piece outright. In this case, realize you will need to accept a wholesale price, not a retail price. Dealers have large overheads and sometimes they have to keep an antique in stock for a long time before finding a retail customer. The upside is that by selling to a dealer you’ll receive payment more quickly and don’t have to do all the selling yourself.

However, many antique dealers may only be interested in taking a piece on consignment. This is assuming that it fits with their inventory and they have the space in their gallery. Most dealers would expect to charge a 30 – 50% consignment fee, and you would be responsible for the transportation of the piece to the dealer’s gallery.

Keep in mind that it can be quite expensive to ship a piece of antique furniture safely. That shipping cost will come out of your pocket if you contact a dealer outside your geographical area. You’re usually better off contacting antique dealers in your closest large city.

Tips If You Sell Antiques Online

If you opt to sell antiques online through one of the ecommerce sites, you’ll need to write good and detailed descriptions. Even if you don’t know much about antiques, make a note of any makers’ marks or hallmarks and give exact measurements.

Take close up photos to sell antiques online

Also take good, clear photographs from many angles. A picture speaks a thousand words! Include close-up shots of any decorative details and maker marks, and ideally show the insides of cabinets or drawers. At EuroLuxAntiques.com, we tend to provide lots of images when we sell antiques so buyers can see everything as clearly as they would inspecting the item in person. Then they are confident about making a purchase, or they can ask for more details if uncertain.

Finally, be honest about any damage or wear. People expect antique items to show a little wear – that is part of their history and unique charm and it proves their authenticity! But nobody wants any nasty surprises when the item arrives. The condition of an antique is a big factor in assessing its worth, as two similar pieces can sell for vastly different prices if one is in mint condition and the other rather more well-loved! For this reason, also be honest about the condition with appraisers if you get an online appraisal, otherwise the expert can’t give you the best advice.

Dale Tiffany Lamps: The Creative Process

EuroLuxAntiques.com has carried Dale Tiffany lamps, chandeliers, and other light fixtures since summer 2012. These stunning hand-made glass lights often replicate the original stained glass designs of Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps. The creative process behind Dale Tiffany lamps is a wonder to behold so I was delighted to see this video showing how the artisans hand-craft each piece. Eye candy alert! You’ll see some gorgeous lamps in this video.

All Dale Tiffany lamps are unique pieces. The craftsmanship starts by creating the art glass. True art glass is made by hand-blending a palette of molten glass tones to conjure up unique colors. Then the glass is hand-cut and each piece is individually edged with copper foil. This technique was developed by Louis Comfort Tiffany more than a century ago for his famously ornate glass mosaics.

Finally, the artisans hand-assemble the pieces of glass into the mosaic design of the shade. The mosaic is soldered together and given a superbly authentic antique finish. Metal filigree might be added to accent details such as dragonfly wings. Hundreds of pieces of glass are used in the designs, and some shades feature more than 1,000 individual glass segments.

You can see the full selection of Dale Tiffany lighting in our online gallery or click on any of the pictures for more details. In addition to reproductions of original antique Tiffany lamps, Dale Tiffany has created some designs inspired by Tiffany style and traditional techniques, but reflecting contemporary tastes in home decor.  Dale Tiffany fruit chandelier from EuroLuxAntiques.com

Greg and I are very selective about the reproduction product lines we offer to our customers. The high quality and skilled craftsmanship of Dale Tiffany lamps and chandeliers meet our exacting standards! We know our clients want the benefit of beautiful heirloom-quality lighting at a much lower price than the original antiques.

Louis C. Tiffany broke new ground in designing with glass, but his designs were limited to the wealthy.  Not any longer! It’s wonderful to see the tradition of Tiffany lamps continue as Dale Tiffany creates the antiques of tomorrow.

Bookshelf: Vacation Homes, Living Artfully, Period Gardens

Summer is a time for dreaming and the first book on my bookshelf this month inspires me with fantasies for my dream vacation home. Another recently published book inspires flights of fancy for designing a period style garden. Perhaps we’ll opt for a vintage 1920s garden once we’ve finished our 1920s bungalow renovation! But even in my wildest dreams I don’t imagine owning three homes as fabulous as those of Marjorie Merriweather Post. Never mind. We can get a sense of her style with a look inside the book…

Designers Abroad: Inside the Vacation Homes of Top Decorators

Designers Abroad: Inside the Vacation Homes of Top DecoratorsThis colorful book takes a peek inside 22 vacation homes owned by leading designers. There are more than 200 photos, from tropical escapes in Mexico, South Africa, and Thailand, to designer Stephen Shubel’s sanctuary in the Loire Valley. It is interesting to see how the decor in the vacation homes is inspired by different countries and cultures. Timothy Corrigan’s apartment in Paris is gorgeous. His dining room is to sigh for, with its decorative wood panel walls, marble fireplace, antique French furniture, and a splendid chandelier. The designers also tell how they achieved the looks in their vacation homes, so there is plenty of inspiration to be found!

American Home Landscapes: A Design Guide to Creating Period Garden Styles

American Home Landscapes: A Design Guide to Creating Period Garden StylesIf you want to create a period garden or just add in some period elements, this book shows the way! It looks at 400 years of American landscape design with more than 300 illustrations to provide inspiration. The authors are the horticultural historian Denise Wiles Adams and landscape designer Laura Burchfield. They clearly know their stuff. They divide garden history into six eras, from 17th-century colonial style up to the end of the 20th century. Dig in to the book to find out about the plants and features such as pathways and fencing used in different periods of history. Then get digging!

 

Living Artfully At Home with Marjorie Merriweather Post

Living Artfully At Home with Marjorie Merriweather PostThe stylish heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post founded General Foods. The businesswoman was also famous for her parties, her philanthropy, and her homes! This illustrated book describes life at three of her homes from the 1950s to the 1970s. You can’t exactly call them vacation homes because she just shifted between them by season. She spent summer at Camp Topridge in the Adirondacks and winter at her villa in Palm Beach. In spring and autumn, you’d find her at her Hillwood Estate in Washington, DC. Marjorie Merriweather Post was a big collector and a fan of 18th century French decorative arts. So we’ve got a love of French antiques in common, although unfortunately I don’t share her enormous wealth! Visitors can see her collections at the Hillwood Mansion and Gardens. But if you can’t make it to the house, check out the book. The author, Estella M. Chung, is a curator at the estate.

Client Spotlight: Console Table in San Francisco, CA

A gorgeous console table makes a stylish and very useful addition to any home. We have a large range of console tables at EuroLuxAntiques.com and sometimes customers are spoiled for choice!

Marseille Console Table from EuroLuxAntiques.comElizabeth L. in San Francisco, CA, told me she was trying to choose between three different console tables for her long, narrow hallway, but was having a hard time picking which was the perfect one. I suggested printing out photos of each table and hanging them in the hall above the space where the table would live. That way she could walk by the choices each time she passed through the hallway, with the hope that one would jump out at her in time. Elizabeth called in the help of a friend, who immediately pointed out this Woodbridge Marseille Console Table as the clear winner.

Console Table from EuroLuxAntiques.com at home in our client's hallwayElizabeth admired her friend’s taste in design so she went with that choice and is very pleased! Doesn’t it look fantastic in her hallway? The elegant reproduction console table in a traditional French style is a generous 54 inches long, but at a slender 12 inches deep it’s a perfect fit for the narrow space. The pretty posy of flowers pops against the rich cherry veneer of the solid wood table. The table is hand-waxed and distressed to give the illusion of age and the C-curved sides and tapered legs add to the streamlined silhouette so the table doesn’t overwhelm the space. I love the way Elizabeth created a striking vignette with the mirror and art above the console table, flanking a vintage style gilded letter E!

Console tables are very flexible pieces of furniture and can be used in so many ways. They make the maximum use of a narrow space like Elizabeth’s hallway, but can also be used as an accent table in a larger room, providing space to display your antiques and collectibles, framed family photos, or a beautiful table lamp.

Designs range from ultra modern to traditional antique looks – as you can see in this selection currently in our gallery. (Click on the photos to find out more details.)

A console table can also serve to visually separate and define different areas of a open-plan living area if you place it at a right angle to the wall. A console table can even double-up as a dressing table in a small scale bedroom, or provide extra space to stack guest towels and store necessities in a compact bathroom.

Demi Lune Console Table from EuroLuxAntiques.com

While most console tables are by their very nature rectangular, a demi lune or half moon curved table can look very charming and create interesting visual texture by breaking up a linear space.

Things We Love Right Now – August 2013

Most of our antique finds go straight into the EuroLuxAntiques.com gallery so they can become someone else’s antique finds! But sometimes we come across antique or vintage pieces that we keep for ourselves. Here are some of our own antique finds that we love right now.

Therese is our Shipping Manager and she also handles some restoration work and many other behind-the-scenes jobs for our family business. (Therese is Greg’s aunt.) When she’s not helping us keep the wheels spinning at the gallery, she spends her spare time collecting spinning wheels! Therese is such a big fan of spinning and textiles that at one point she owned 40 spinning wheels, although she’s downsized her collection now.

100_0659This is one of Therese’s antique finds. It’s a Canadian production wheel dating to circa 1900. There was a resurgence of interest in hand spinning in Canada around the turn of the century, which was too little too late in the face of the industrial revolution. Therese found this wheel at an antique market in Atlanta, GA. It has a cast iron treadle and tensioning device. “I had been looking for one for some time, and turned the corner at the sale and there it was,” says Therese. “It was the last day of the sale, so I was able to get a great deal on it. It is wonderful for spinning a fine yarn based on the ratio of the 30″ drive wheel to the small spindle.”

Vintage Norwegian Thy Roc  spinning wheel, circa 1980. This Norwegian wheel circa 1980 is another of her vintage treasures. The brand is Thy Roc and it is made of ash. Therese wanted one of these when she started spinning in 1988, but they were no longer being made. “Many years later, I found an ad for this one in a specialty magazine,” says Therese. “Even though it was an old issue of the magazine, it was still available. I bought it immediately. It is a smooth running wheel good for a thin to medium thick yarn.”

I already blogged about how I fell in love with the great vintage clothes and home decor at the Flower Child store in Columbus, Ohio. I found a fab pair of 1960s purple platform heels and bought a vintage 1960s dress to match. You can see me modeling my groovy new outfit in my vintage life post.

One of our antique finds: 1937 Art Deco Zenith Radio On the same road trip to Ohio, Greg and I also picked up this 1937 Art Deco Zenith Radio while we were hunting around for some ‘new’ antique finds. The radio is about the size of a large nightstand, and that’s how we plan to use it.

Our 8 cats and dogs are fluffy finds rather than antique finds, but they are certainly our favorite finds! We are passionate about our fuzzy brood and EuroLux Antiques donates a portion of every sale to help rescue homeless pets at Pets Inc., a no-kill animal shelter in Columbia, SC.

Lenny and Ozzie have been especially keen to “help” me out lately. Here’s Lenny, helping me with the laundry, and Ozzie, affectionately known as Mr. Kittles, helping me check my emails. However would I manage without them?

Road Trip to Columbus, Ohio: Vintage Life at Flower Child!

Summer road trips are awesome. For me, they bring back that wonderful and exciting feeling of the last day of school – jumping on your bike, heading home with the sun on your face, and a huge expanse of summer ahead of you. What adventures would lie in wait around the next corner?

MatthewBdayGreg and I drove to Columbus, Ohio, to visit his sister and her family this summer and had a great time. We were there in time to celebrate my nephew’s 12th birthday with a pizza party and red velvet cake.

My nephew, M., loves antique and vintage things and is a proud “kid picker” (a great program established by Mike Wolfe of American Pickers to encourage young people to be interested in antiques).

Flower-ChildHe saves his allowance to hit garage sales every weekend and absolutely loves to explore thrift shops, so I was quite excited when he wanted to take us to his favorite vintage shop in Downtown Columbus, Flower Child. From the first sight of the 1950s metal porch chairs out front, I was smitten. But when I walked inside, I knew I had found 1970s vintage mecca.

Vintage

 

 
You’ll find a huge accumulation of vintage stuff at Flower Child – furniture, art, housewares, kitchenware, clothes, shoes, and jewelry – Vintage2I hadn’t see this much 1970s stuff in one place since my own house growing up in the 1970s! But I’m certain we didn’t have that many macrame owls.

I wound my way through an almost maze-like sequence of vintage life showrooms, each more colorful and vibrant than the next, and squealed with delight, “Look at that! I remember that! We had that!”

M. beamed at me and boasted, “I told you this place was awesome!”

I wanted to buy it all, especially when I found the kitchenware room, but as we still have at least a year to go before we finish our bungalow renovation, I resisted the temptation to begin decorating. I definitely will be back though!

 

There were rooms filled with vintage clothing, shoes, jewelry, sunglasses… clothes

clothes2

And then I found out there were not one, but TWO! basement areas filled with more vintage clothing – it was overwhelming!stephen

S., my 15-year-old nephew, immediately put together a totally fly outfit – complete with purple top hat.

And then I saw them – a pair of late 1960s purple platform heels in nearly mint condition – and gasp – they fit! That was it – I had found my summer road trip souvenir.

But with which outfit would I wear my dream shoes?

I raced through the racks, searching for the perfect vintage 1960s dress to match my shoes – and it nearly jumped off the rack at me – I think you can see why…

Dress2small

Dress1smallI had so much fun picking out this outfit and spending the afternoon browsing through Flower Child with my nephews. It was one of the highlights of my summer road trip.

If you love vintage stuff and you’re in the Columbus, Ohio area (there’s also a store in Cleveland), be sure to stop in and admire the world’s largest collection of macrame owls.

Do you have a favorite vintage/antique shop that is a must-see in your area? Tell me about it!
