Pssst...Listen Up!

Pssst...Listen up     It's an Estate Sale!

Once upon a time, there was an accomplished and distinguished
gentleman who moved to Kentucky from Virginia. Along with him,
he brought his collections and memories of a lifetime.

Many an evening he would spend sitting at his
Sheraton style, mahogany dining table, reflecting on his life.
Pssst...$2,500 and the wisdom is free 

Whilst the ladies of the house restored the SiverPlate
to it's original condition.
Pssst...Over 60 pcs. of Silverplate, Lady Rothschild would be envious!

Then they would lovingly return it to it's proper home
Pssst... We have a pair of these Chippendale style silver chests.

Now mind you, the gentleman from Virginia
wasn't partial to silver: he had an appreciation for all
precious metals.
Pssst... We have five beautiful mirrors

An evening spent by the fire...
Pssst... Accessories from three fireplaces

with his favorite cigar...
Pssst...Three Tea caddies starting at $100

and his favorite book.
Pssst... Oui, Madame, lots of English & French antiques

His biggest dilemma...Where to sit!
Pssst...Comfy huh? and $300! Like new!

The Chinese Chippendale Bench perhaps?

A Louis XV style bergere?

Maybe the Louis XVI style fauteuil.
Pssst... Oui, they are all authentic antiques

A Philadelphia style Chippendale chair?
Pssst...Both are sets, ca. 1880 and 1920

A beautiful French antique Provencial caned canape in walnut
Pssst...  Oui that is a 100% wool carpet  from  Pashawar Pakistan, 9 x 12
and we have more, more more!

He loved art, whether a copy of oil on canvas
Pssst...Marchioness de Pontejos by Francisco Goya

or an original hand painted French privacy screen.
Pssst... One of a kind!

You see, this is a lifetime collection, so many treasures
Pssst... Hepplewhite & Chippendale, yes Copeland too!

Did I tell you about the Limoge boxes?

and more Limoge boxes?
Pssst... A steal at $35 each

On the Queen Anne Lowboy!

Six mink coats even!

Diamond laced Michele watches, yes plural!
Pssst... We have 3 retail at $1500, only $300

Baccarat crystal that the gentleman never used

Did I mention he liked to travel?

He had a fondness for the Orient

and the color, turquoise.

And things that resembled the sun on the horizon.
Pssst... Hepplewhite buffet with inlaid sun rays

Demi-lunes of any sort

Then there is the not so old, but nice!

Like trundle beds of iron

Things for the kiddies too!
Pssst... Haddon Rocking Horse, England's oldest  rocking horse maker

You didn't think we would forget the puppies, did you?

As you can see, the gentleman had some fine things.
Pssst... The list is endless.

I'll leave you with a few more photos

Pssst... Like new! $300
