New Today! A Cairns Bro. leather High Eagle Fire Helmet c. 1900 and ID tag belonging to August Berl a Rochester Fireman from Engine Co. No. 7. These helmets are still made by Cairns, using the same process they have since 1850. The leather front shield is spotted like a dalmation.
A previous owner used this gem of a planter outside...a definite No-No. Bronze castings missing most of their fire gilding, probably Sevres porcelain artist signed and cracked in the back, busted up marble base and I still had to buy it, in all it's faded glory. 26" high and weighing 80 pounds it has a liner so is still serviceable.
Busy time of year with a few sales coming up, this one has a nice variety of things!

Recent acquisition. "Tire Store, Brooklyn 1955". 8 x 10 pencil signed photograph by N. Jay Jaffee. Like Atget in Paris and Abbott in NYC, Jaffee recorded the disappearing life & culture of Brooklyn.
An example of this shot is in the Brooklyn Museum.
A 1972 "Big Star" pinball game by Williams Electronics. I lugged this out of a basement the other night with a friend's help. This one is restored well with a lot of snap, big time magnets and a forgiving "Tilt".
Scarce "flow blue" platter in the "Quadrupeds" pattern made by brothers John and Ralph Hall. This was produced from 1802 to 1832 in England primarily for the North American market. I love the early stuff!
New addition! We used to find these lithographic stones quite frequently, especially here in Rochester. While not very valuable, the process of making and using them is fascinating. A short video here..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E38B0swb4vo
Painting on panel by Rochester's "favorite son", Ramon Santiago.
A couple couldn't agree to like this so it is on the market. Dated 1974 it was in the previous owner's possession some 40 plus years. Ahh Ramon, gone but not forgotten...
New today! Part of a large lot of 1940's pressed steel, tin wind up and paper litho toys. The "kid" in all of us keeps this part of the antique market pretty steady!
New today! Life-size work in hammered brass by Yosef Drenters c. 1970.
My trip to Brimfield this week had me swearing off large heavy items, so today on my way to work I bought a 6' cast aluminum table with a tempered glass top. "Sigh" someday I'll learn....
Packing today for a trip to Brimfield Mass next week. Three times a year thousands of dealers and collectors gather for a week here to buy and sell. Not for everyone but it is an event like no other!
This flyer was made by a 75 year old retired investment guru, out of found material in his Pittsford home. Guy never tried his hand at art till then. Imaginative and fun, I couldn't get the golf club bag in the shot cause it was hanging on the other side!
Pair of Macbeth "eyebrow" headlamp lenses, new old stock, c.1928. These would have fit a variety of early automobiles. Never know what you'll find in this business!
Have no idea what this is but I had to have it. Mighty fine piece of "steampunk". $50 store credit to the first person that can convince me they know what this was used for! Add some legs and you would have one "heckuva" an end table.
Just walked in the door. A painting by Rochester artist Dorothea Landow of one of "man's best friends". A student of Carl Peters and Robert Henri, she had shows in the 1930's at MAG and the Eastman Theatre.
New Today! A 19th century word processor. Complete with a rotary ball head, this pre QWERTY Blickensderfer #8 could really get the job done. Hundreds of firms competed for typewriter dominance with most going bankrupt or being bought out. Ya gotta love the free market!
More sculpture than timepiece, this 22" clock case might be the best of it's type I've ever had! Made of "slush" or "pot" metal, these castings are easily susceptible to damage. C. 1900, this is complete with original finish.
Mythical "critter" carved in catlinite by Cherokee artist John J. Wilnoty. A not very prolific and somewhat enigmatic artist, his work is highly regarded. The attention to detail here is borderline obsessive!
Exceptional piece of fantasy furniture circa 1880! Boudoir size carved in walnut, probably German. Great condition and wonderful color!
By Conrad Marca-Relli, a first generation New York School Abstract Expressionist, silkscreen w/ collage on aluminum panel, # 32/50, 1969.
Pair of large tile plaques, titled "The King & Queen" by Harris Strong. Probably from the late 50's ,these 4 foot pieces will definitely make a "mid-century" statement. Original perfect condition!
