We are delighted to announce the arrival of our container from Denmark, filled with new pieces! Some have gone off for a bit of professional restoration and ravishing new upholstery before making their debut in the New Year (think sleek lines of Danish Art Deco), and others have come straight to us in time for the holidays. A wonderful gift for a loved one who appreciates beauty...a large antique Danish oil landscape painting by N.A. Lytzen houses the dreamy quality of the peace and stillness of the forest, clearing a space for reverie whether you are in the country or in the bustling city. Or enjoy the inspired musings of well known Danish artist Julius Paulsen, who brings the flirtatious joy of Monet's impressionism and a flair for lighting inspired by Rembrandt to his many works, such as this one portraying Danish countryside.
Above you see the first peek of a gorgeous and rare giltwood girandole mirror of the Regency period. Flanked with two candle brackets, acanthus leaves, and a formidable eagle bearing a ball hanging from a chain, this classically designed mirror of European provenance, from the late 18th/early 19th century (also found in Federal iterations here in the U.S.) may have graced the entry hall or dining room of a stately manor house, or a grand city apartment. This example has unusually beautiful old gilding, and is of significant size. This piece, set against a clean white wall, black and white floor tiling, and a few sleek modern pieces, would be dazzling....set a lush cluster of deep red roses somewhere in the room.
