"Tiffany & Co., Blair House" China
Blair House is the President's guest House in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Government purchased Blair House in 1942 at the request of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Prior to the purchase of Blair House, guests of the President usually spent one night in the White House followed by a hotel or embassy for the remainder of their visit. In 1988, Tiffany designed and created a range of pieces for Blair House including 100 place settings of fine china to coincide with the completion of a major restoration project. For a limited time, the "Blair House" pattern was offered by Tiffany in its' retail stores. The design is very pretty and fresh, and definitely timeless. This set consists of four place settings and serving pieces. Each place setting is made up of a dinner plate, luncheon plate, bread and butter plate, and a cup and saucer. There are six additional serving pieces; 2 large oval platters, 1 oval vegetable bowl, 1 coffee pot and a cream and sugar. American, c. 1980's SOLD

"Sprague and Carleton" Caned Seating Group
All you need is a covered front porch or a back porch overlooking a stream and this wonderful set, and you're set for the rest of the season. Actually, going with that same scenario, a couple of Hudson Bay blankets and you are good for almost four seasons. This three piece seating group was made by Sprague and Carleton of Keene, New Hampshire and is comprised of an arm chair, a rocking chair and a two-seater settee. It has a warm, comforting nostalgic feel and has stood the test of time very nicely. The set is perfect as it is but would also be nice with some custom made seat cushions in a soft beige/cream or blue/cream cotton ticking stripe fabric. We can do that for you. American, c. 1920's SOLD

We Will Go The Extra Mile....
or several hundred to make our clients happy! When a client from New York wanted to purchase this light fixture, we investigated and found it would be a little tricky and expensive to ship it. As we were coming down here anyway, we arranged to hand deliver it to Brooklyn. We are on our way this morning and looking forward to visiting my old hood after the delivery. At Michael Thomas, we will do whatever we can to get you what you want! We currently have lots of beautiful very small items in the shop and if any of our Tuscan clients are interested..........

Even though we are on vacation, we have had a pretty busy go of it this past week. There has been a fair bit of travel, we've hit a few of our favorite spots, we have negotiated the sale of a house, the purchase of another, announced and made some plans for the moving of the shop.... but now we relax. We have reached our final vacation destination and will be spending the next few days relaxing in the Hamptons with good friends. After an early morning walk on the beach, we are ready to call that pool home from now until we head back to Canada. Yesterday we told you to expect some special things over the next month, and there is no time like the present. We haven't even told Marilyn yet, but we have decided to take some pretty significant markdowns on some pretty sensational pieces in the shop. We don't think these items will hang around too long, and that is our intent, so if you are interested, you might want to give Marilyn a call this morning.
