Vodka jug , strictly vodka.

And Back to wood again:........picked this up almost by accident. Always wanted it in a larger more Victorian shape (a la Viennese Cafe) but will settle for this space-saving version.

Is the jug Russian, then?

Nice coat rack, great color.

Great auction tonight, snowing like hell though, I hope it goes forward because if it does there will be low attendance and some sick deals to be had.

I believe that's called a samovar, and is meant for tea. Vodka or absinthe would be good though.

Russian tea boiler from 19 Century, called "Samovar". Made in the city named Tula (Ural mnt.) where the best Russian armor, firearms and swords were made during the Empire. It is a Rus. classic.

The chair is back from Premier Decorators in Brooklyn (http://www.premierdecoratorsny.com).
I am happy with waist suppression and pattern matching (seat).

Cool Medwed, i had no idea that you were near NYC.

I have a small vase by Giacomo Alessi and while doing some research on him this morning and came across this:



I came across the works of his private collection in town outside of Florence while on the search for some pottery that wasn't the usual pooped out ceramics geared toward tourists. A pop-up shop was selling it along with some other really awesome ceramics.

You r really into wood man, even your clay has some wood in it...biggrin.gif
That pot would make for perfect avatar.

BTW, do you use ceramics outside of kitchen environment , as decor pieces? Any examples?
post #83 of 321
Hah, this is true. I use them mostly as sculpture. All the furniture I build is wood, but most of what I buy are metal framed. I like the contrast.

Aside from plates and coffee/ tea cups I don't have much in the way of ceramics in the kitchen.

Chairs look excellent Medwed. Nice fabric.

I do ceramics in other areas of the house. I have a wall of stacking barristers from Globe Wernicke, they're 4 across and 5 high. I mix it with books and trinkets:







They are a bit bare, after my divorce a lot of the books and nice stuff in there was divided so I have to refill them, but the effect is nice.

Anyway these barristers are plentiful in my area, they come from government buildings. I can get these here for about 1/3 of what I see them selling elsewhere for.

While I was taking pics, I have a matching pair of these Windsor rockers, they need a coat of tung oil, but are really nicely made. Picked them up in Annapolis where they were in a family for a few generations. Downsizing is a goldmine for finding antiques.

MW, if you dig that shape I have a Victorian bentwood floor easel that I was going to send to auction. Give you a pretty good deal on it.
