At Carnegie Antiques

I spent the afternoon minding the shop at Carnegie Antiques today and decided to paint a little sketch of a table of glassware that has recently arrived at the shop. Judi, the shop owner, had organized this table of decorative glassware last week; when I was in I was enchanted by all the colors and […]

Poem for Saturday: Vintage
vintage items

What a variety of color, shape, pattern, object…this still life was totally unplanned and nearly unseen. Likely Judi was simply clearing items off the counter and placed the Lover’s Knot Lace-edged hankie on the chair, then pulled the necklaces that hadn’t been selling and lined them up on her hand, turning around and setting it […]

Summer Tea: 2011

A colorful tea set with a backdrop of colored glass lit by they sun on a bright afternoon. Seen in Carnegie Antiques, it was all just so colorful and gleaming it was hard to resist. It’s always interesting to see what is collected, what is saved, and what survives to be shared again, sometimes the […]

Eden on a Lamp

(I first posted this photo on this day in 2010, and I have to share it again…) I’m not really sure what to think about the images on this lamp. They’re not very well done, so interpreting them is a little difficult. Is it some sort of Adam and Eve and the kids scene? Or […]

The Flower Lady: 2010

In keeping with this spring theme, this unique ceramic figure was long been one of my favorites at Carnegie Antiques; someone finally bought her last year. It’s unsigned and has no identification, but certainly she was not made from a mold, at least not her dress and hat. Each of the porcelain flowers and shells […]

Antiques at Night: 2010

It was well after dark as I went to check the front door, and the front room looked magical in the reddish light of the neon sign in the upper windows. Lots of glass in the room, and crystals on the chandelier, all catching the deep glow against the saturated darkness made things look as […]

Le génie a pour son domaine L’immortalite: 2010

How’s your French for translating that? “The domain of genius is immortality.” This  has been a difficult assignment, though. Usually a collector’s item can be found on the internet, and all related information about artist, manufacturer, tradition, social culture, etc. can also be easily found; collectors tend to be a diligent and detail-oriented lot, and […]

Time

A collection of old watches, none working, some pretty bent up, but still holding that reverent mystery of time, and our keeping of it. I just wonder who Grace Jarret was, and why she received an engraved watch. It was all in the jewelry counter at Carnegie Antiques.
