Overall the painting is well preserved and clean. The details about the painting are present on the back of the painting, with a title, name of artist and location. The lettering is likely original to the painting and appear to be written in an old hand.

Oil Painting of Venice | Dated 1874-1875 | Titled and Signed

Cloister of San Gregorio
1874-1875
Oil on Canvas
Stretched & Not Framed
By D. Mailland Armstrong
Venice, Italy

Offering a lovely painting of a Venice scene. Painted by a well trained artist, as displayed by technique, composition and colour. The details are finely painted and the use of colours are sharp and brilliant.  It’s a rather old painting with some damage, but still shows many of the details.  I consider it Shabby Chic!  There are no rips to the canvas and the stretcher is strong.  The painting has been lightly cleaned and varnished. The details about the painting are present on the back of the painting, with a title, name of artist and location.  The lettering is likely original to the painting and appear to be written in an old hand.

Jupiterlicht Stage Cinema Spotlight, 1920’s Berlin

JUPITERLICHT

MADE IN GERMANY

A very rare early German cinema/stage light, which has been rewired with a period fabric cord.  Would be a very stylish decorative living room piece.  The wiring can handle up to 500 watts, but for domestic use, such as using it next to a sofa, 40-100 watts would be sufficient.  It currently has a 40 watt bulb fitted, which I find ideal to read under.

The construction is very solid, with many pieces made of a light alloy and a cast iron base.  The height adjustable handle is made of ebonized bakelite.  The original glass and internal reflector are in exceptional condition.  The wiring had been redone for domestic use, with an on/off switch attached to the cord and a new period style plug.  The fixture and base have been repainted.  At a point in it’s life, someone hand-painted the light housing, so it had to be sanded, in order to achieve a smooth finish.  The light has some dings, as expected of a period item, which evidently got lots of use.

During the 1920s, Berlin was one of the worlds premier film, cabaret and arts centres.  The classic movie, Metropolis was filmed during this period.  Jupiterlicht must have been the most advanced and desired lighting during the era.

There are very few surviving Jupiterlicht lights from this period, none of which seem to be for sale.  It’s also highly unusual to see one, which had been made for the North American market.  Truly a rare piece!

Offered at $1595.- SOLD

The item will ship in two boxes by UPS.  It must be insured for the full sale amount.  Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges.

Painting of Still Life in Oils on Canvas

Still Life

By Kay Hall

1940s-1950s

A Lovely use of colour and composition. The artist certainly had formal training, as the technique is well advanced. The paints are vibrant and show some signs of age, including cracks and a few very small spots of missing paint. There is a sketch on the back of the painting, with the name of the artist. There is a wire for hanging. Personally, I prefer the painting unframed.

Offered at $395.- SOLD
    
The painting will ship by UPS Ground.
