French Style Chairs



Vintage pair of arm chairs.


Barnard & Simonds Co.


These are quality mid-century French armchairs with fabulous rush seats that are still in perfect condition.


There is some noticeable wear on the  arms, especially towards the front which lends to their charm.


I believe the wood to be maple.
 

The design of these chairs is lovely and the wood has mellowed and achieved a gorgeous layer of patina.


These chairs have been valued at approx. 
 $675 each.
 

If you are local to the SF Bay Area you are welcome to come and see them in person.


Just email me for an appt.
 

For those of you who are not local, I am happy to help with shipping arrangements.

Pair of Black & White Fornasetti Style Perpetual Face Vases



The Vitruvian Collection is a series of sculptures that celebrate the human form as well as the human spirit.


Inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, each sculpture contains 8 stoic faces, each sharing eyes with the next.


Sir Thomas Browne once said,


"There are mystically in our faces certain characters which carry in them the motto of our souls."


These cold cast resin vases measure 9 3/4" tall and are 8" in diameter.


They have a faux leather textured finish.

125 Years of British Luxury



SMYTHSON

  The ultimate purveyor of luxury handbags, purses and leather diaries.

Engagements Featherweight Book circa 1980


 SMYTHSON was always more than a mere stationary shop.


Its first store opened on Bond Street, London, in 1887.  


It started life supplying the smart set with calling cards, the elegant version of today's business card, as well as tissue-lined envelopes and gilt-edged invitations to coming out balls.


The product, however, that made its name was the featherweight diary.


For the first time a gentleman could carry his appointment book in his jacket pocket thanks to it being printed on ultra-thin paper.


But the company soon branched out to supplying travel goods to the generation that enjoyed the golden age of steamboats and motor cars.



For anyone posted to the far flung corner of the Empire, they could purchase from Smythson not just a diary, travel journal and headed notepaper, but also a leather case to store their shaving kit or toiletries.



It still sells stationary, including old-fashioned writing paper - it holds three Royal Warrants - as well as brightly coloured notebooks, leather key fobs and passport holders. Their products are known worldwide for being the epitome of quality when it comes to leather books and stationary.
