A Review of Hartong International, By Salvaged Grace

“Volume doesn’t matter in a shop with pieces as elegant, sophisticated, and restrained as Hartong International. It’s clear that Jason Hartong, the proprietor who has a background in art history, selects his inventory with care. Most pieces are of European descent and although they may be pedigreed, the shop feels very timeless and distinguished.”  For more, visit Salvaged Grace.

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.
International shipping is available.

MasterCraft Cast Iron and Chrome Electric Desk Fan

MasterCraft desk fan manufactured in 1947. It’s a truly well-built piece of vintage American manufacturing. Built just after World War II, it’s 8″ fan blade runs like an airplane propeller.

It runs very smoothly and fast. The motor and bearings have been cleaned, then lubricated. The fan also has been rewired, with a new power cord. There is one speed controlled by an on/off switch. This retro desk fan creates a massive amount of airflow for a unit measuring 10.5″ in height. The Chrome fittings and fan blade have been cleaned/ polished. The steel and cast iron parts received a fresh coat of paint.

This fan was built to last forever and it just received it’s 64 year service. It’s ready to give that retro look and quality to your office or home. It does have an oscillating mechanism at the rear, which does not work. I believe the gearing has worn away from years of use. It doesn’t affect the overall purpose or look of this brilliant desk fan. This is a solid metal original and after running for awhile the motor housing will become hot to the touch. This is normal, as there is no plastic on this fan.
