Very good looking and very practical as well. This two-tiered, mahogany dumb waiter (revolving) has a brass gallery, with a Greek key motif on both levels, brass feet, casters and a fluted tripod base. It would make a perfect compact bar. 43"h., 24" diameter. American, c.1940 SOLD

We have returned from an amazing vacation out west.
It was a little bit country. We stayed in a yurt at an inn on a vineyard in Washington State. It was like being on safari in a vineyard; great food, great wines and fantastic views. It gets quite arid and desert like two hours inland from the coast. We met a rattlesnake on our hike one morning and fell asleep to a chorus of coyotes outside our yurt one night.
It was a little bit rock and roll. In Seattle, we happened upon a Jeff Buckley tribute concert at the Crocodile. It was one of the best concerts I have seen in a long time and one of those serendipitous happenings that make a vacation. Jeff Buckley was my favorite singer/songwriter. More bands the next night and then a great birthday celebration in Vancouver for my brother to end the vacation.
Found lots of inspiration for the shop and also found a great young artist who will hopefully be joining the group at Michael Thomas.

Instead we will offer two very special casual Friday feature pieces this week. Once we return, we will be posting some fantastic pieces including a beautiful inlaid and lacquered Chinoiserie secretary, a very impressive Tomlinson cabinet as well as new work by Britt Randle and lots of other great stuff.
