Large Sitzendorf Porcelain Group

This large grouping measures 12 x 12 x 7 inches and consists of two men, one woman, three goats, and a dog. The lady has lace at her neck, sleeves, and dress hem. She plays the ocarina while one man, her suitor, plays the tamborine and another spies on them from behind the tree.

It is in perfect condition with the one very minor issue of one leaf tip broken which is not even visible from the front. (see photo in eBay listing) The lace is even intact.

These large figural groups don't surface very often.  $550.00   (AG491)


Another Sitzendorf Figural Group

This large Sitzendorf figurine group measures 12 x 11 x 6 inches and is in perfect condition. The gentleman appears to be assisting the lady to dismount from her mount.

These large groups by Sitzendorf don't surface very often, so I'm happy to be able to offer two of them here on Ebay. $540.00 (AG492)


Early Hand Forged Hatchet

Aside from some light rust, this hand forged hatchet is in very good condition. The hickory haft is probably a replacement, but fits the piece well. Also, the rivets appear old, if not original. It measures 13 1/2 inches overall, the blade measures 3 x 3 inches and appears to be all steel. (Typically, early edge tools had laid in or on steel bits on wrought iron blanks.) There is no maker's stamp which would indicate this tool was made by a general blacksmith, not an edge tool maker. The eye straps measure 5 1/2 inches long.

Strapped eye tools are generally quite early, dating from the 18th to first quarter of 19th centuries. Two types of strapped eye are found, integral straps as in this example, and applied straps, which are added to the haft and peened over at the open end of the eye. The latter type tends to be the earliest and strapped eyes are usually found with hammers, hatchets with strapped eyes being quite rare. $95.00  (SA401)

Signed and Dated Iridescent Vase

This beautiful rainbow iridescent vase measures 5 3/4 inches tall by 4 inches diameter and is in perfect condition. It is absolutely beautiful, the photo barely does it justice. It is signed and dated, but the only portion of the signature I can read is "glass," and the date reads "198[7 or 9]" These iridescent pieces are extremely difficult to create. (AM190) [SOLD]

Napoleon III Era Tantalus with Glassware

This is a gorgeous rosewood veneered tantalus with boulle marquetry and containing an almost complete set of etched crystal glassware. It measures 12 1/2 inches wide by 9 3/4 inches deep by 10 1/4 inches high in closed position. The glassware is unsigned, but is fine crystal. The set originally had 16 cordial glasses and is missing 6. The four decanters are original with one missing its stopper. All the glass is in perfect condition as is the box itself. These sets are known as Cave au Liqueur in French. (W366) [SOLD]

Item ID:

Boulle marquetry refers to an inlay technique employing metals and other materials such as tortoise shell in inlay work. It was developed in the 18th century and became popular again in the second half of the 19th century


19th Century Damascus Steel Bladed Mughal Dagger With Carved Camel Bone Handle

19th Century Indian Mughal dagger with carved camel bone handle in the figure of a ram's head. As can be seen in the photos, the handle was pieced together then carved. Beautiful Damascus steel blade with a silver inlaid "rain guard" in front of the handle. The scabbard is of wood covered with purple felt sewn together with red silk thread and gold thread. The length is 11 1/2 inches overall, the blade, 7 1/2 inches. A fine example in fine condition. (AM193) [SOLD] 

Item ID:

Although I date this knife as 19th Century, it could easily be 18th Century or earlier as the early Mughal Daggers very often were fitted with felt covered scabbards. The "Classic Period" of the Indian Mughal Empire began around 1655 with the ascension of Akbar  the Great to the throne. Under the rule of Akbar and his son Jahangir, India enjoyed economic progress as well as religious harmony, and the monarchs were interested in local religious and cultural traditions.
