Lovely slate blue lamp by mid-century potters and designers Jane and Gordon Martz for Marshall Studios of Indiana. Their combination of ceramic and wood (at the top of the base) is always pleasing.
Royal wedding! Souvenir plate commemorating the 1840 marriage of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert. Her dress is hand colored even though actual gown was white. Shown with two English ‘flow black’ handleless cups from the 1850s.
Milk glass vases make excellent centerpieces at weddings—this small vase uses relatively few flowers to great effect!

Vintage - Mid-Century Modern - 20th Century Design

I've been around art and antiques all my life and have been lucky enough to make a career of it, working first in museums and auction houses and then independently. I worked for many years at Christie's dealing with amazing objects every day as a senior specialist in 20th-century design and global head of online design sales.

I firmly believe that beautiful vintage objects for your home can be had at any price point. There are plenty of options out there to suit every taste and budget and Etsy is a fun way to share some of the pieces I find in my travels.

My own taste tends to be pretty eclectic--I like everything from traditional 18th-century pieces and Aesthetic Movement design to mid-century modern and kitschy pieces from the 1960s and '70s. I have a long-time addiction to textiles. I'm selective about the objects I offer and am picky about their condition.

I have a good life. I have a fun job and deal with beautiful objects all day, travel a lot and live in a great city. I especially like working with decorators and stylists to find just the right piece for homes, movies and photo shoots and have had numerous items featured in magazines, TV shows and films.

I'm also an appraiser on WGBH's Antiques Roadshow:
