Get a load of these African chairs, featuring stylized gazelles. They're not for sitting (too fragile!), but they display beautifully (if you can keep the kids off them). (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)

(R) Brilliant design, n'est-ce pas? By Hallberg, I presume a Dane. It would make sense, no, with that delicate design? Can you feel the influence of Jensen? Originally silver-plated and lacquered, and as you can see it has "the patina of the ages" upon it. I should double the price!! (e-mail Jack for a price)


(L) ... is for "Love them bookends!" That's tractor-talk. Anyway, these machine-age gems are the coolest! Each measures 5 3/4 by 3, and 4 1/4 high. (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)


(S) ... is for SASAKI! And yes, of course I have a set of this dinnerware and could I live without it? Hardly!

The bone-white, super high quality porcelain with its jaunty, colorful decorations sets the mood for a fun meal every time. That is, unless somebody at the table's harboring resentments (they just might be jealous of your impeccable taste).

The dinner plate is just under 11 inches in diameter; the soup bowl, about 9 1/4, the salad plate, just under 8 inches. The cups are a nice size and the handle design, sublime. The sugar and creamer are a bonus, especially with the black finial for the sugar lid (it came in white as well). The sugar bowl lid has been “lightly” damaged you can see the chip in the close-up photo; there's a hairline crack as a result. I will say that this is nowhere near the breaking point, as long as it's treated with care and kept out of the dishwasher. One salad plate has a flake near the rim about the size of a pinhead. Otherwise, like new! Dishes to die for!!! (e-mail Jack for a price)
