American 1940s Martini Glass Trade Sign

Swingin’ 1940′s martini glass trade sign from a cocktail lounge in Denver. What an impact when illuminated!  Great displayed up high or on the floor as a cocktail table. Wonderful original blue paint surface.

“Along with helium, xenon and krypton, neon was first extracted from the air in the late 1890s. Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers discovered a category of gases missing from the periodic table and the Greek names they assigned to these elements paid tribute to their occult source. Helium refers to the sun, in whose chromosphere it was traced; xenon means strange (as in xenophobia, which warns against foreigners); and krypton implies that the gas is cryptic, in need of decoding. Neon simply identifies something new, enigmatic and unclassifiable.” Guardian U.K. 

Price $10,500. Condition Expected patina from use as a trade sign. Very stable and substantial. Has been rewired by an electrician. Two sockets near the base do not work.
Measurements: height: 36 in/depth: 13 Base/width/length: 31 Top

Maison Jansen Pair of Red Velvet & Gold Leaf Leg Chairs

MAISON JANSEN 1940s pair of red velvet and gold leaf leg chairs

Maison Jansen (House of Jansen) was a Paris-based interior decoration office founded in 1880 by Dutch-born Jean-Henri Jansen and continuing in practice until 1989. Jansen is considered the first truly global design firm, serving clients in Europe, Latin America, North America and the Middle East by 1900.

Maison Jansen provided services to the royal families of Belgium, Iran, and Serbia; Elsie de Wolfe, the German Reichsbank during the period of National Socialism; and Lady Olive Baillie’s Leeds Castle in Kent, England. The firm’s most published work was for the U.S. White House during the administration of John F. Kennedy.

These fantastic chairs are in excellent condition, are newly reupholstered in red velvet and newly regilded legs

Materials/Techniques: red velvet and gold leaf leg
