SATURN'S DAY SUGAR-SIFTER
big antique oil painting- bull moose & water lilies on pond- $887
The sun creates sunlit areas as it climbs through the tree line, but the blue morning haze is still a prominent element of the background. A huge bull moose appears to have been distracted by something, the snapping of a branch perhaps, as he feeds on water lilies while standing in one of those small sunny areas.
He raises and turns his head toward the distraction, water dripping from his mouth. I’ve owned the painting quite a long time, and since it is untitled, I’ve always called it
I just got it back from its cleaning, and my restorer said she found no damage or overpainting. So, except for cleaning and a contemporary frame, it remains untouched. (Great frame I found, don’t you think? With its inlaid arrows, I think it is perfect for the piece. The only surprise was the cost of quality frames nowadays. Holy mackerel!)
vintage 4 star quilt, indiana estate- $318
From sometime around 1915-20 and up until the 1950s, Daisy Annabelle Leuchter (née Salmond) was a familiar face to residents of Columbus, Indiana. She and her husband Eckhart owned and operated the Leuchter Bakery. Eckhart made home deliveries of fresh-baked goods, so Daisy was most often the smiling face who handed loyal patrons their purchases – wrapped in paper and tied with string.
