# 5246. A pair of fine and rare Art Nouveau footed cups. Each size: 13" tall. The base is 4.5" in diameter. The Bowl is 5.5" at its widest with the top opening being 5" across and 3.5" deep. One footed cups is highly gilt. The other is silver plate. The only marks are on the underside "11". Similar styled forms are pictured on pages 100 and 101 in Waltraud Neuwirth's "Bluhender Jugendstil Band 1" and are described as "Goblet (metal) probably J.C. Klinkosch, Vienna." There are several examples from the firm of Klinkosch and all are attributed: none marked. Stated in " Modern Art of Metalwork Brohan Museum" on page 518 under the title J.C.Klinkosch. Price: $5,000.00 for the pair.

# 4986. A German Art Nouveau Display Cabinet. Size: 57" x 23" x 97.5" tall. In two sections: the upper display cabinet opens only from each side; the glass shelves inside are 10" x 41" long; one mirrored shelf on the bottom and two adjustable glass shelves. The glass shelves, mirrors and brackets are contemporary. The side glass and front glass appear to be period to the cabinet. There are modern halogen lights in the upper display area. The lower section has two drawers and a cabinet which reveals three wood shelves. The wood is veneer oak with strong Art Nouveau flower decorations in relief. Condition: there is some veneer loss and some veneer surface lifting on the top of the cabinet on which the glass cabinet sits. The side doors to the glass cabinet are very tight to open: they lock and there are replacement keys to each side. Not a 'finely' made cabinet piece but very effective. Paper drawer liners indicate that this cabinet came from Remscheider, Germany (the liner is actually an advertizing poster with names of about 30 businesses. The poster appears to be from the 1970's) and we suspect that it was used in some fraternal or military museum for display of historical objects. This cabinet would be an excellent display unit for a collection of glass, pottery or militaria. Price: $2,500.00.

# 5141. A French Art Pottery Vase. Etched signature for Gaziello Vallauris. Size: 11.75" or 30cm tall. The metallic glaze varies from top to bottom: copperish on the top to a green on the base. The glaze is a little different on each side. The surface is bumpy with the entire vase having a hand hammered finish. Condition: a rim glaze line from the top down for about 1.5" plus another glaze line on the opposite side of the top, impossible to photograph. Both glaze lines are about the same size; and two under base edge flakes. A very attractive vase. The form is pinched at the top to create a quatrafoil lip with the appearance of fluting almost to the base. Price $1,650.00.
