Pair of Brass (?) Bookends, Native
American Indian Brave Scout GA105.
Comments: I have the question mark because I am not
certain that it is brass; it doesn't draw a magnet,
though. These are not completely solid in the base
area (you'll understand this better when you have
them and feel the weight difference between the
upper and lower areas) but are almost certainly
solid in the upper area where the young man's body
is sculpted. This pair weighs over seven pounds, so
they will hold your books or two of your doors!
Stark and simple without gratuitous detailing, you
can read the combination of tension and weariness in
his body language. Very nice and unusual pair.
Material: Brass (?)
•Width: 4 1/4"
•Height: 6 1/4"
Carved Heavy Wood
Bird, Hawk, Maltese Falcon GA104.
Comments: I've included a photo of the grain of the
wood on the main body to help you judge what wood
this might be. I am not certain, so I don't label
it, but it is very heavy for its size, weighing
almost five pounds. When I see it, I always think of
the Maltese Falcon movie with Humphrey Bogart. It is
simple and clean of line with no heavy detailing,
yet so much is conveyed by what little detailing
there is. The surface is cool to the touch and
satiny smooth like a somehow solid bolt of silk.
Just a very elegant piece that has a very real sense
of its own importance.
Color: Natural dark brown
•Depth: 4 1/4" (at lower third; possibly a bit more
•Width: 6" (across upper wings)
SOLD Vintage TV Lamp, Ship
At Sail, Ivory with Gold GA103.
Comments: Here's a treat for you; a TV lamp that
isn't a black panther. Nice little ship at full
sail; gold detailing is vague on the sail due to
handling over time, but strong everywhere else. It's
a twist-on, twist-off switch and that switch is
still nice and snug with no play in it. Cord has no
breaks and is still supple; this would be a nice
table piece or perhaps on a shelf above your flat
screen or below it on the entertainment center.
Perfect working condition.
Material: Glazed pottery/ceramic
Color: Ivory with gold trim
•Depth: 5 4/8"

SOLD Antique Electric Fan,
Comments: I photographed this fan where it is
displayed in the shop rather than moving it to the
photo area, so let me know if you need more or
different pictures and I will provide them by email
for you. Wonderful old fan; I've not cleaned
it up on blades, housing or base. I will leave that
to you to do as much or as little as you choose.
It's actually ready to go and use just as it is.
These fans are SO much more efficient at their job
than any of the new ones; this one will move the air
in a large room and if it is pointed directly at
you, you may want to move back a little if you are
used to the pitiful air output of recently made
fans. On the LOW speed, it moves my scrolls on the
wall 20 feet away and of course on the medium and
high speeds, it is a force to be reckoned with. It
oscillates quietly with no buzzing motor noise. The
hole you see in the top of the motor housing is
where the peg for stopping the oscillation used to
be; if you need the fan not to oscillate, you will
have to make a new peg. Some of these fans were
stopped by pressing down on the peg, while others
had to have the peg turned; I'm not sure which one
this is, but people who know more about fans can
fill you in on that. This is quite heavy, so
shipping will be a bit higher than usual, but having
this fan in the room with you will more than make up

SOLD Pair of Glass Lamps
With Prisms, Crystal Clear GA101.
Comments: I photographed these where they stand in
the shop instead of moving them to the photo area,
so if you need more or different pictures, let me
know and I will provide them to you by email.
They use standard base bulbs and are in wonderful
condition with no chips or cracks and of course they
work! I can't comment as to age; they are probably
not very old, but they are so beautiful that I was
willing to present them to you anyway. This lovely
pair could go anywhere; on a pair of night tables,
at opposing ends of a sideboard or buffet, on
matching his & hers desks; the possibilities are
endless, so you can decide for yourself! They will
be well packaged for transport but I would still
