If you like the thrill of an auction......you'll love this one!

Directed by Finn Andersson
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:
A Chinese Ming Vase is up for auction. The bidding opens at a half-million Euro. Bidding is brisk and each bidder is clearly identified as each raises the bid by 100,000 Euro. (The exchange rate at auction time was 1 Euro = $1.43.) Within seconds, the bidding stalls at one million Euros, and the gasp from the crowd identifies the excitement that prevails in the room. The successful bidder is the last one who bid one million, and the auctioneer counts down the bid, "Going once, going twice, and sold to the gentleman sitting in front of me for one million Euros."  Now, you are going to have to see the video for yourself. The auctioneer is exuberant. The pace is fast. This is how an auction should be run. Note the excitement on the auctioneer's face after the final bid.

Antiques as Souvenirs

Antiques as Souvenirs | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Tourists have collected travel kitsch since the Crusaders plundered their way through the Holy Land.  Postcards, pennants, shot glasses, spoons, as well as,  a plethora of other items have topped the list of must haves from exotic and pastoral locales. These items are readily available at estate sales as they lose their meaning once their purchaser has passed. I have a different take on souvenir purchases; I try to find an antique or vintage piece that I can use and enjoy in my home decor.

The estate of the late Earlene S. Bowen — “the Antiques Lady” — will be sold on-site without reserve

The estate of the late Earlene S. Bowen — “the Antiques Lady” — will be sold on-site without reserve | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

In 1957, with $10,000 and a dream to get into the business, Earlean launched Bowen’s Antiques, initially as a home-based venture. Parlaying her love of Empire pieces, old Southern furniture, primitives, Americana, china, crystal and jewelry into a bulging inventory, Ms. Bowen had, by age 85, amassed an inventory worth about $1 million. And she was just hitting her stride.


“At an age when most people are well into retirement and taking life easy, Ms. Bowen was out there, charging around the country, buying new pieces and making new contacts,” Dwight Stevens said. “At age 90 she had a six-man crew and several trucks. She was just this unbelievable powerhouse of energy. People in many states knew her as ‘the Antiques Lady.’”

The Man Who Thought Like a Ship : Past Horizons Archaeology

The Man Who Thought Like a Ship : Past Horizons Archaeology | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The letters nagged at me like a persistent hint from the past. I’d first encountered them among my father’s papers as I researched my book, The Man Who Thought Like a Ship. They pertained to a ship model he’d built in the 1950s of an ancient Egyptian vessel. The model left home before I was born, and everyone, my father included, assumed it had been discarded long ago. I’d only ever seen it in pictures.

Getting A Handle On Antique Eyeglasses | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
For many of us, our only experience with “flip glasses” was that scene in Pretty Woman in which Julia Roberts (as Vivian the prostitute) goes to the opera, ineffectually swings her limp opera glasses by their long handle, and whines, “Mine are broken.” Or seeing that pair of flip glassed on that episode of Pawn Stars. But there's a lot to know about lorgnettes.

Pair of Fine Victorian Face Screens, Chromolithograph Images - The Vintage Village

Pair of Fine Victorian Face Screens, Chromolithograph Images - The Vintage Village | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I have never seen anything like this, didn't even know they existed. This is such a piece of history. I can just picture a fair lady sitting by the fire and fanning herself. What a treasure!

 

Face Screens were used by Victorian Ladies to shield their faces from a hot fire. As most Victorian utilitarian items, face screens were beautifully decorated. Each of these face screens is made from cardboard. The shape of the screen is cut in an intricate design. The center portion of the screens, each have a Chromolithograph image of Colonial groupings. The round image has braid to frame the image. The handles are a work of art in themselves with the delicate turnings. Tiny wing nuts secure the screens to the handles, Both screens are in similar condition. The cardboard frames are worn on the edges. There is some water damage to the frames as well as the center mat. One screen has a piece of the braid missing. The image boards are secured to the frames with tape. This is could be replaced. The wood handles are in excellent condition. The price is for the pair of screens. Each screen measures 16" x 7".
