The Decorative Arts Edit

Aesthetically superb items sourced from around the world form part of the Decorative Arts Edit, which showcases varied cultures and brings an indelible piece of history to a space at home or at work.

Featuring Oriental themes that originate in the China, the “Silver and Partially Gilded Belt Plaque” dates from the Liao Dynasty and is centered around two deer positioned on either side of a fruit tree. The item, which originally was worn on a belt, has partial silver gilding. Created during the 1700s, the “German parcel gilt and ivory beaker” is composed of a silver base and carved ivory body that features scenes from a hunt. The beaker has gilt on its interior and can be showcased as a centerpiece on a table or a mantel shelf.

Offered by Ebury, which has an impeccable collection of antiques, the “Italian Sputnik Chandelier” is a vintage piece that is modeled after the famous satellite launched by the Soviet Union. The chandelier features a number of small circular sphere arranged to form a large circle and provides a dramatic effect when lit.

Created during the Tang Dynasty, the “Pottery Miniature Bucket” draws heavily on the design of metal buckets and is fashioned from clay. An eye-catching blue, which is interspersed with brown and green hues, gives the upper part of the bucket a metallic sheen, while a handle that mimics a twisted rope tops it off.  

Composed of stone often used in jewelry, the “Jasper Tankard” dates from the 1600s and is attributed to Johann Daniel Mayer. The stone is complemented by a silver mount with an attractive gold color and colorful ceramic detailing.  Created in Moscow during the 18th century and featuring fine detailing on four lobes, the “Russian Antique Silver Charki” are fine examples of cups used during the time and have delicately scrolled handles.

Striking colored enamel on the exterior gives the “Enamel and Gilded Silver Kovsh” a unique vibe. The silver gilt on the interior and lip enhance the Kovsh, which was created by Maria Semonova in the period from 1908 to 1917 and has an elegant rounded handle.
