We’ve had a couple of very busy weekends in a row and, though they have been packed with great deals and even better items to pass along to you, we’re looking forward to a weekend at home (we hope) this coming Saturday and Sunday! Still, it’s hard to pass up a great sale and we recently happened upon one that yielded some extraordinary pieces. We also just took a very large load of items in on consignment and we’re excited by all of the treasures, both big and small, that we’ll be sharing with you!
If you’re local, we just updated the items available in our booth space at House of Vintage with some of the pieces we’ve recently acquired. Among other things, there are a couple of real standout pieces we wanted to especially tell you about!
First is a gorgeous late 30’s/early 40’s sideboard made by the Blue Bird Manufacturing Co. of Los Angeles. It’s really a stunning piece and features the original hardware, too! The style is often referred to as Spanish or Spanish Revival, though there is some overlap with the Jacobean style as well. The intricate details on the accent portions of this piece are amazing, and it would look great in a dining room or even as an entryway piece. (sorry for the dark pic! We were just so excited to photograph it as soon as we got it home and then take it in to the space!)
The second piece that we are very excited to offer is also from the late 30s and is a simply amazing 1938 Philco radio. It’s hard to know where to start with this gorgeous guy. It is a model 38-7 and is in beautiful condition. All of the knobs move freely and the speaker cloth doesn’t have even the slightest snag in it much less any fading. As is the case with many old tube radios, this fella isn’t working but it sure wouldn’t take much to get him to, though how many AM radio stations do you listen to these days anyway, right? That being said, the lights in it DO work and the soft glow that comes from its face is enchanting.
Both pieces are currently for sale in our booth but, if you’re not local and are still interested, let us know! We’d be happy to send you more pictures and work out shipping costs with you!
