Back in 2010, divers off the coast of Finland stumbled upon some astonishingly old booze: champagne and beer preserved underwater in a 170-year-old shipwreck. Naturally, they had a taste. But now scientists are back with a rigorous chemical analysis of the beers.

Donna Sharrett’s Art of History, Remembrance and Time

Donna Sharrett’s Art of History, Remembrance and Time | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

"Donna Sharrett’s work is both emblematic of its time and difficult to classify. At first glance, it may appear to be quintessentially postmodernist, offering a borrower-conjurer’s cornucopia of found objects and unusual materials that have been plucked out of their original, utilitarian settings and repurposed. At the same time, though, Sharrett’s mixed-media abstract art is not intentionally postmodernist at all..."

 

Donna Sharrett: Love Songs and Sampling continues at Pavel Zoubok Gallery (531 West 26th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan) through February 7, 2015.

Vintage Cream Wool Angora Designer Cloche Hat with Rhinestones - Mr. John Hat - with Original Hangtag!

Vintage Cream Wool Angora Designer Cloche Hat with Rhinestones - Mr. John Hat - with Original Hangtag! | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Creme colored felt in an angora wool -- i.e. it has a fuzzy nap. True to the cloche hats of the 1930s, this vintage hat from the 1960s is designed to be worn low on the forehead, with your flashing eyes slightly below the brim. The hat is accented with a string of bright rhinestones (in a black setting to highlight them) which form a loop at the side where the hat is softly gathered by the ear for an asymmetrical cut. Understated classy drama for the lady who says volumes in a whisper...

Part of the mid-century modern resurgence of cloche hats, this is a super vintage designer hat made by Mr. John -- THE Mr. John!
