Antique Dogs

Nov 09, 2010 ● By Anonymous

Since the addition of a golden retriever to our family almost six years ago (a Christmas gift to my daughter), I have developed a hitherto latent affection for dogs. I’m not at the point where I place a photo of our dog on the mantel, but I slow my step whenever I see a gift display or store devoted to dog paraphernalia. Thus I can easily understand how folks can become devoted to collecting dog-related antiques, particularly when it relates to their favorite breed. If you’re out antiquing this summer and you’ve left your dog behind in the care of a boarder or friends, you might just be attracted to purchasing a dog-related antique.  

Samplers

Nov 09, 2010 ● By Anonymous

As a young girl infatuated with life in the 18th century, I used to fantasize about what it would be like growing up during the 1700s, learning how to sew fine stitches, make lace tatting, speak French, and play proficiently on the piano. Part of every young lady’s education during the 18th century to the mid 19th century was completion of a sampler demonstrating her knowledge of the alphabet and embroidery skills. Perhaps an interest in the early education of women is what draws some people toward collecting, admiring, and reading about samplers.  

Oriental Rugs

Mention the term “Oriental rug” and one person may think of colorful birds, trailing vines, and stylized flowers while another may picture dramatic geometric shapes and rich earth tones.
