Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog

Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

"These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color."

Asil Note: It's amazing how color pulls these images into such sharp relief, making them more immediate and yet so clearly images of the (now) distant past.

I confess. I'm a THING person - a collector, a gatherer of objects. If it gathers dust, I'm all over it (although not with a dustcloth). Don't get the wrong idea: I'm not Miss Havisham, huddled in my lair as my belongings crumble to dust around me.

This is my best antique auction so far. An amazing set of antique brass binoculars and spyglass. I was told they were a field set from WWI but I am not positive, that is about the time frame for Lemaire Paris items so it's very possible.

Art Deco Artists and Art Deco Designers

Art Deco Artists and Art Deco Designers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Art Deco Artists - A reference of artists and architectural and decorative arts designers that typify the art deco style... from Andre Leon Arbus to Rene Lalique, Frank Lloyd Wright and Joseph Hoffman.

 

Art Deco epitomises style and sophistication and some of the 20th century's most significant artists, such as Pablo Picasso, Fernand Leger, Sonia Delaunay and Wassily Kandinsky, produced work in the art deco style, as did many designers of furnishings, textiles, jewellery, and advertising.

 

Favourites include Charles-Eduard Jeanneret (Le Corbusier), who as a decorator became well known in the Parisian art world, and worked with other great designers such as Andre Groult and Paul Poiret.

 

Frank Lloyd Wright is another excellent art deco designer. He was instrumental in fashioning a specifically American tradition of modern decoration upon which American Art Deco was built.

 

If you love Art Deco here are the artists and designers you want to collect ...

Antique Auction Houses Buck The Economic Trend

Antique Auction Houses Buck The Economic Trend | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Latest figures show that most provincial auction houses have done rather well during 2011. Why?

 

People like to collect things, and antiques are a favourite collectable. It's nice to own a piece of history that you can use; something you can sit on, serve dinner on, store items inside of, or look at in appreciation.

 

The value of an antique is realised by the collector who owns it as well as the collector who wishes to own it and that is evidenced by the sterling performance of antique auction houses during 2011, when low interest rates, record gold and silver prices and collectors looking to liquidate assets produced record sales results.

 

For instance; the highest price paid in the UK in 2011 was the 1.75m pound bid for an Imperial Qing dynasty white jade teapot and cover at Woolley & Wallis.

 

In the USA in December 2011, the unique Brasher Doubloon, known as the 1st American Dollar Gold Coin, was sold by Steven L. Contursi. It was bought by Blanchard and Company of New Orleans for around 3 million dollars, who then sold it to a Wall Street investment firm for nearly 7.4 million dollars.

 

For most antique buyers and sellers these are numbers we can only dream of; but It will always stand you in good stead if you take the time to understand how to buy and sell your more modest collectibles and antiques at auction.
