I have surrounded myself with pieces of vintage art work … family pieces, thrifted pieces, photographs, etchings, engravings, watercolors and even post cards … I love the idea that these pieces have lived for so long, spent time with other families, have a history unto themselves.
I look for art of all kinds whenever I am out picking pieces for Sfuso, so lucky to have some great pieces from a Yonkers Estate currently listed.
These two amazing pieces are superbly, detailed, hand colored botanical engravings, made for Sir Joseph Paxton’s “Magazine of Botany” published in London from 1834-1849.
How about these lovelies … Vibrant is an understatement, no? Please meet Ibiscus Iris pumila and Solanum Herbertiana respectively …
and then there are the engravings … Emmanuel College at Cambridge 1842
A View of the Capitol at Washington by William Henry Bartlett (March 26, 1809 – September 13, 1854) , Marked Jordan & Halpin, printed R. Miller …
Finally, my current fave, and obsession du jour … Fruit Crate Art! Look at this Sunsweet California Prunes label … DEVINE!
Thank you for stopping by …
