As summer is coming to a close, I was looking around the garden at the house dreaming of a spot to stick the beautiful urn. Made by J. L. Mott in the 1850’s, this stunning piece features an image of Benjamin Franklin. This is one of the only examples that I have come across that features his likeness and is signed my Mott. It’s a true stunner and a great representation of one of the more entertaining founding fathers!

This is a recent purchase. I am in love with this 1647 image of Sir Francis Drake. Privateer, explorer, and a constant thorn in the Spanish side.

Wanted Wednesday! From now on, I am going to post things on Wednesday that I truly covet and chances are, I will never handle or own any of this type of material. It is a true wish list! For my first post I chose this chair in @colonialwmsburg collection.

This chair was made for John and Elizabeth Cadwalader and is attributed to the shop of Benjamin Randolph. Based off one of Thomas Chippendales designs, this chair was the height of American Rococo style. If you find one in you grandmothers attic, please call me.

Today, I went and picked up a few things from @jeffreysevansassociates and I was fortunate enough to run into one of the best shops in the Valley, Vilnas and Co. He always has some of the coolest stuff but this silver trunk took the cake. The common looking trunk held all the silver for the S. S. Rona. I wish I was still fully loaded but this was on cool silver trunk.

In the winter of 2013, I decided to start a business where I could share my love for American history and the objects that reflect our county's past. This year marks my first 4th of July sitting in my shop. It is a wonderful country we live in that remembers the past while looking forward to the future.

Happy Weathervane Wednesday! This horse weathervane was made by A. L. Jewell and Company in mid to late 19th century. You can put a weathervane anywhere. It works with formal furniture, mid century, and is that perfect piece of sculptural art.
