Home Decor

We think of our homes in very personal ways to express color, form,  dimension, and utilization.  Wall hangings, tabletop, bed, window, and floor coverings all add to our ideas of what is needed.  Our furniture may be practical or whimsical, or a combination.  Modern furnishings may suit our needs for functionality, but a need for more personalization may lead us to centuries-old paintings for example.  Whatever moves one to seek to transform a house into a home may be found here.

SAILING SHIP DIORAMA

Sailing Ship Diorama, mid-coast Maine origin. Sails, hull, masts and flags carved wood applied to board and framed, then over-painted to create the finished piece. Painted ship and lighthouse add to the charm. Condition is very good and parts are intact. One flag has some paint loss. We believe this is an important and impressive piece of folk art of a classic New England Seascape.

Miniature Bathing Beauties

This set of early 1900s bathing beauties in miniature makes them even more rare. Since they are entirely bisque, they do not often retain all their parts including paint which these do. When one has a bathing cap, it is even more collectible. Standing one is 4″h, lounging ones are 3″ each. Sold as a set.
