Vintage telephones add so much charm and elegance to a room or office. Western Electric made the finest telephones in the world, with all metal bases and time tested bakelite handles. Their telephone technology was above and beyond the competition. A 1930s model 202 with an E1 handset like the one above was the pinnacle of telephone design during the Deco era. There’s nothing like dialing a call on a clickity clack sounding refurbished rotary dial, as it makes every call feel important. The separate ringer box which accompanied this model had beautifully cast brass bells, making a beautiful sound, much like the sound one would hear while watching a Hollywood film of the 1930s with a telephone in the scene.
In order to keep elegant old telephones alive and working, Hartong International fully refurbishes each model with an obsessive attention to the fine details. The 1930s Western Electric Model 202 displayed above is offered for sale in our store. Like all the vintage and antique telephones we carry, they have been fully refurbished with stunning glossy paint, new or inspected NOS wiring and updated networks to work on all traditional telephone lines.

Offering an early 20th century (1900-1910) antique oil painting of two gentlemen and a young butler. Unsigned, but this was generally the case with many portraits from this era. The original frame, which is no longer present, would have displayed a brass plate with the family name and the artists details. This portrait was painted by a highly skilled painter, with an excellent grasp of using loose brush strokes for a formal painting. A very desirable style, showing great skill. The artist was very gifted and likely schooled in Europe. This painting was obtained in the New York City area.
The condition of the painting is excellent, with no areas of significant damage. A very fine example with some creases showing the stretcher from behind. It has a beautiful clean finish and a glossy older varnish present, which has protected the paint. The frame is suited well to the painting, but not the original frame.

Offering a 19th century Asian hand carved rosewood and burled exotic wood chair. The construction certainly points to the mid 19th century, as the chair was constructed with wooden pegs, noticeable on the joining of the arms and back. There are nails, which were likely added when the chair was fitted with a replacement caned seat. The nails appear to be of early 20th century vintage. Given it’s age, there are a couple splits in the wood, which do not impact it’s function. A lovely chair with plenty of antique charm. Strong and complete!The Ivory and exotic wood inlays are finely detailed and show a figure climbing a tree limb. There appears to be an older repair to the head of the figure, which isn’t Ivory, but is very presentable and blends in rather well. One small area of a tree branch detail also appears to have an older repair present.The overall shape and fine hand-carved details are unique and very beautiful. It would certainly give a warm handmade antique presence to any decor. A rare 19th century piece of Chinese furniture. It has a bespoke feel. It’s a comfortable chair to sit in, but is most definitely a decorative piece and mean’t to be admired.
