The couple that lived in this villa enjoyed years of collecting with studied good taste. The browser will find a number of rare books, framed antique maps, as well as many glass, metal (some bronze) and porcelain items included among furnishings which run the gamut.
There are collections of micro-beaded and petit point handbags, lady's fans (both framed and boxed), oriental items, seltzer bottles, bookends, hatpins, cut glass items, pot lids, vintage travel labels, Christmas carolers and tree toppers, cobbler items, items relating to Dickens characters, et cetera. There are a few things for the Studebaker collector.
There are names like Steuben, Hoare, Verlys, Libbey, Orrefors, Val St. Lambert, Maitland Smith, Royal Doulton, Royal Copenhagen, Pratt Ware, Herter Brothers, Hickory-White...and more.
We are in the process of discovery, set up, display and pricing, getting accomplished more rapidly than we first anticipated. One recent find was a notarized letter certifying the provenance of a cut glass nappy from the estate of Sarah Bernhardt.
