Description

This charming 1912 watercolor of a pair of birds perched on vines with pink and white flowers was painted by 15 year old Violette Stevens, who signed and dated her artwork lower right. On the back, the original dust paper is intact and Ms. Stevens inscribed it in pencil in two places. On the upper portion, she wrote “Painted in watercolors April 1912 Age 15 Great Falls, Montana”. At the bottom, she wrote “Age 15-My water colors”. Great Falls is a very progressive planned city that had a number of cultural activities at that time, including art clubs and painting groups. Violette Stevens, whose name appeared in newspapers of the time as Violet, grew up to work for the U.S. Forest Service as a stenographer and also worked as assistant county clerk prior to marrying Mr. R.S. Nyhagen on April 24, 1919. We have other biographical details on her, which we’d be glad to share with the purchaser of her lovely artwork.

4305 V. Stevens 1912 Watercolor back view-2443 x 2353-jpg

The painting measures approximately 9 inches by 9 inches including the 1/2 inch wide gilded wood frame, carved with flowing Art Nouveau designs. The artwork, frame and glass are all in excellent condition with no damage and very little wear. With its petite size, this painting is perfect to hang or prop on a shelf or easel, alone or as part of a grouping.

Description

This oval hand made, hand braided rug is thick and heavy, feels great underfoot and is very clean. It measures 41 inches long and 31 inches wide and has had minimal use so it’s not matted down. The fabrics are 1940’s wool tweeds, mostly suiting fabrics, with solid black and brown strips braided in for accents. There are no spots where the braids have come unstitched and no tears in the fabrics. The lovely soft colors are easy to decorate with and, like most braided rugs, it’s fully reversible.

Description

  • Vintage item from the 1910s
  • Ships worldwide from United States

The Hygeia Ice Company, located in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, was incorporated in 1912. This handsome salt-glazed stoneware jug is incised with the company name; the printing is very precise, which indicates a metal die was probably used. The body is beehive shaped, hand made of grey clay and given an arched, C-shaped handle. The only decoration is an inscribed ring on the neck and the beautiful orange peel surface from the salt glazing. This 2 gallon jug stands 12 inches tall, about 7 inches at its widest and weighs 5 pounds 9 ounces. Its condition is excellent; there is one shallow chip on the bottom but no cracks and the cork that’s wedged into the mouth is not the original.

The Hygeia Ice Company produced manufactured ice, also called plant ice, freezing water with mechanical equipment, rather than harvesting natural ice. It was the nation’s largest cold storage locker and the first artificial ice plant in the area. They advertised the ice was made with distilled water for purity (see photograph #5). Their equipment was used to create Utah’s first ice skating rink and a heated swimming pool. Hygeia was the Greek goddess of good health, cleanliness, and sanitation and many other companies adopted the name, including ones that made things like chalk and baby bottles.

Description

  • Vintage item from the 1980s

This pie pan and its matching lid were made of grey stoneware with overall blue sponging by the Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville, Ohio. They are in absolutely pristine, unused condition, with no marks, chips or cracks. The pie plate is 9 1/2 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep, while the lid is 10 inches in diameter and 4 inches tall to the top of the round knob handle. The set weighs 6 1/4 pounds and has impressed marks on the bottom that read: Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery Roseville, Ohio USA.

The Ransbottom brothers—Frank, Ed and Mort—started a pottery in 1900 that became the largest producer of stoneware jars. In the 1920’s, when stoneware jars were losing popularity, they merged with the Robinson Clay Products Company to become RRP, making bricks, sewer tiles and other clay products; they added kitchen wares in the 1930’s. They proved to be one of the few companies that made it into the 21st century producing serviceable stoneware (they went out of business in 2005).

This spongeware set can be used for your favorite pie recipe or as a covered serving dish and looks great sitting on a cupboard shelf.

Description

This one of a kind original sculpture was made of heavy natural clay, hollow but weighing nine pounds, two ounces. The subject is a very sensitively portrayed woman’s head that was given a finish of bronze colored glaze, with darker glaze in the nooks and crannies to emphasize details like hair and eyes. Obviously done by a very talented sculptor, it is unsigned or marked in any way.

This wonderful sculpture stands 10 inches tall and measures 8 inches across the widest part of the woman’s face. The flared base is oval, 5 inches by 4 1/2 inches and the piece is in excellent condition–no cracks or breaks, no marring of the glaze. This is a work of art you’ll be proud to own and display.More Details

Art Deco Women by Achatit Werkstätten West German Wall Masks

Description

This dramatic Deco pair of wandmaskes {wall masks} comes from the workshops of the German company Achatit Werkstätten, which was founded in 1948 by Hans Schirmer and the sculptor Peter Ludwig, who designed these fantastic wall masks. They trademarked a new material, one made by boiling fine powdered stone with sawdust and a binding agent, which was then poured into a mold. After they cooled, the sculptures were painted and/or gilded, then polished with agate stones. The word agate is “achat” in German, which is how both the material and the company got their names. The process produced a non-ceramic material that is often mistaken for ceramic.

Both of these wall sculptures are 10 inches tall and project about 3 1/2 inches out from the wall. The lady on the left in photograph #1 measures 6 inches at its widest, while the one on the right is 7 1/2 inches at its widest. The right hand one has two gold foil labels on the back; one label has the company name and a drawing of a sculptured head, while the other label reads HANDARBEIT {handwork/handmade}, MADE IN GERMANY HANDIWORK. Both were made in the 1950’s {later ones use the copyright symbol or the word copyright}. Although they are marked ‘made in Germany,’ they were actually made in West Germany, in the city of Cologne {Köln in German}, which was located in West Germany during the decades that Germany was divided.

These beautiful wall masks are in fantastic condition, with no chips, cracks or discernible wear to the paint or finish. Perfect for that spot where a painting or print just won’t do. More Details…
