Unique vintage objects of exceptional design for the home, with an emphasis on table & wall...from Mid Century, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Belle Époque, Victorian & Mod eras, sourced and offered to you with great joy.

We buy vintage items as well, mostly Art Deco dinnerware & silverware sets, book & magazine collections from the 1920s, etc. Please contact us if you'd like to sell yours!

The purpose of our shop is to bring more beauty to your world, and we sell only what we love. Our offerings are distinguished further in these ways:

1. We actively collect and specialize in these Art Deco dinnerware patterns from the 1920s & 1930s, the first 2 of which the dynastic Sebring family of Ohio had a significant role in producing:

~ Salem China: the futuristic Tricorne & Streamline shapes were our first dish crush, and we offer our huge collection of these Atomic Art Deco triangular and early Moderne round shapes in as many patterns as possible, from the ever popular Mandarin Orange to the modernistic white-with-platinum ringed Zephyr, and everything in between we can find...

~ Leigh Potters: their Leigh Ware is some of the most interesting Depression era--& some say THE first example of--American Modernist dinnerware design. Their trademark Umbertone ceramic, a naturally tan colored Ohio River Valley clay body, provided the perfect material on which to produce shapes both classic (the round "Moderne") and experimental (the geometric "Ultra"). The latter featured rectangular & square platters, plates and bowls with notched corners and stepped handles, plus hollowware cups, coffee sets, etc. with ziggurat handles & stair-step bases--all decorated with stylized Art Deco decals and often trimmed and accented with a bright, glittery platinum, the dynamic result of the genius of famed ceramic designers Joseph Palin Thorley and Gale Turnbull.

~ Deauville by Oneida's Community: one of the most highly collectible Art Deco patterns in the world, Deauville's stylistic chevron motif was produced in a dazzling array of mediums: in platinum designs on ivory Bavarian & French porcelain, embossed & impressed on silverplated flatware & hollowware pieces, and even etched on delicate crystal stemware! We're hooked...

2. We celebrate women in all their mysterious forms, from flappers & pinup goddesses to geishas & jazz babies, and every glorious gal in between...
