Collecting Silent Film Stars: Annette Kellerman | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Being the fan that I am (both of the collector and silent film), I couldn’t just let Mary Ann Cade go that easily after delivering her recent silent film news — I had to ask her about one of her favorite silent film stars, Annette Kellerman (also billed as Annette Kellermann and called “The Perfect Woman”).

Design Ideas: Auctioning a little house and library chairs

Design Ideas: Auctioning a little house and library chairs | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

During her lifetime, Mary Griggs Burke, one of the most important private collectors of Japanese art in the world, kept an extra apartment on New York’s Upper East Side, right next door to another where she lived, for her beloved art objects. She died in December at age 96.


But one of her treasures remains at her historic summer estate in Cable, Wisconsin, which was donated to the Chequamegon National Forest. While small, for what it is, the historic cottage is not so portable.


The tiny home had been in Burke’s family since her father bought it in the early 20th century. It was used as a children’s playhouse and remains outfitted with child-sized furnishings. The historic prefabricated cottage will be auctioned by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Milwaukee on July 25.


...Also to be auctioned by Hindman on the same date are a selection of chairs designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller, which were in use at Milwaukee’s East Side Library until it closed recently.

Friday's WHY IN DESIGN: how to incorporate antiques into your modern home

Friday's WHY IN DESIGN: how to incorporate antiques into your modern home | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
What do I collect? 
And, how can you collect and incorporate antiques into a modern aesthetic?  
I love anything for tabletop - like plates, sugar and bowl sets, tea sets and vintage cutlery, salt cellars (a fancy word for salt dishes) or glass ware.  Because many of these items were made beautifully and some by hand, the antique tabletop accessories tend to be high quality and durable.  I also enjoy collecting chairs (because you can never have enough chairs and especially when entertaining -- there's always a need to pull up extras), antique prints and botanical, outdoor furniture/ornamentation and lighting.  
Let's focus on how to incorporate items that may be over one hundred years old into our modern day interior design in a way that highlights the pieces but with a fresh perspective.

Repurposed retail trend attracts creative types, do-it-yourselfers

Repurposed retail trend attracts creative types, do-it-yourselfers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Pinterest, the online bulletin board site that allows users to post pictures of their favorite things or creations, has spawned a new category in retail.


“Home decor” and “DIY and crafts” are among the most popular categories, with pinners posting pictures of decor and apparel items they have created from art supplies and found objects.


And these mini works of art are inspiring others, sending a growing legion of shoppers out looking for items to utilize in their own creations (think furniture pieces with great lines that will become magical with just the right paint technique, or vintage clothing ready to be transformed). Those without a crafty bent are searching for one-of-a-kind objects already created.

Catalog collectibles as a first step to safekeeping

Catalog collectibles as a first step to safekeeping | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

An important rule in collecting is "know what you have." Taking the steps to catalog collectibles can save you time, money and frustration.


...What I want to cover is how to document your collections so that you can insure them against loss. In the process, your documentation will also help to establish provenance and value when the day comes that your collection changes hands. Of course, when you do buy insurance, the agent’s first question to you will be: “What do you have?” So let’s get right down to the business of identifying and cataloging “what you have” in the way of collectibles. Along the way, you may want to decide to inventory the rest of your household goods, as well. It can’t hurt.

Everyone knows that the kitchen is the hub of the home. So when the wildly successful “Downton Abbey’’ series scampered across our television and computer screens earlier this year, the show’s Edwardian kitchen became a visual primer on class and comfort in our increasingly uncertain times.

...[T]he “Downton Abbey” magic continues to seed interest in a broad swath of antique kitchen utensils and artifacts, from Bennington mixing bowls to turn-of-the-century tiger wood rolling pins.
