Back to Miami Beach!

It is time again for the Miami Beach Antique Show and we are on the road. It’s been a year since we exhibited in the original Miami Beach Jewelry and Antique Show. For some of you who do not know us, we are one of the major antiques dealers in  Houston, Texas.

Our permanent show room is located in the Houston museum-district with almost 4000 square feet of displays of fine antiques and collectibles from 18th to 20th centuries with an extensive variety of styles from  traditional to modernism. We also have two large showrooms in two permanent  antique malls in Houston.

Every year we participate in  eight nation wide major antique shows. Our collections come from various countries : France,Germany,Spain,Italy,Sweden and from important Houston estates. We would like to invite you to visit our booth # 1027 in  the Original Miami Beach Jewelry and  Antique Show to see just a fraction of our inventory from fine furniture to art glass. Read more

LR Antiques – Inside the Catalog “Palm Beach Show 2011?

Tiffany patented Favrile glass in 1880. The trade name Favrile was derived from the French word, fabrile, meaning handcrafted. Favrile glass often has a distinctive characteristic that is common in some glass from Classical antiquity: it possesses a superficial iridescence.

This iridescence causes the surface to shimmer, but also causes a degree of opacity. This iridescent effect of the glass was obtained by mixing different colors of glass together while hot.

According to Tiffany: “Favrile glass is distinguished by brilliant or deeply toned colors, usually iridescent like the wings of certain American butterflies,the necks of pigeons and peacocks, the wing covers of various beetles.” The lamp is designed by J.A. Steward, ca. 1926, de verre Favrile.

Illustrated: Louis C. Tiffany’s Glass by Robert Koch (p. 82, pl. 96). Excellent condition with original cord. 17? tall; 10?
