Thursday, while I was at auction, I had an interesting sale--$250 worth of rocks. Well, that's a lot of broken up Geodes.... it turns out that Nate Berkus and partner were in and bought rocks from me and chairs from Angie.
And Yesterday Joel Chen was in and posted photos of Jones to his instagram account. Joel came in with his mixed Bichon who was a little intimidated by Jones--but Jones is so sweet with little dogs.
So when two of the current top guys in the industry come knocking at my door (the reason is unimportant) I'm honored. Unfortunately Jones hates to have his picture taken............
Updates on Purchases
The 17th/18th c table is not French--I think that it's Flemish--love the stretcher and finials
The Chinese trunk looks a lot better than I remember
The Steuben Pedestal Bowl or Compote is stunning--I didn't remember it as being quite so beautiful
And finally, The Suzanne Pascal large glass sculpture. I did not realize that large chunks of glass--not works of art sell for quite a bit of money!! I priced this piece very reasonably as she has lost her marble plinth. I think she's stunning.
It's a gorgeous Monday--and thankfully cooling down from our mid-90s weather of the past few days.
I've got to hustle the next few days as I will be taking a couple off for my niece Emily's memorial service and to spend time with family.
Jones says "hi"--he's gradually recovering, but it's still a long process.
