1917 DJER KISS AD WITH FAIRIES, ABOUT 11" X 16", beautiful color and detail, very good condition with some bumping on the top margin and some very slight soiling on the margin   #DJER18        US  $20.00


 


 
 

ART NOUVEAU EROTIC MERMAID CIGARETTE CASE, signed "SILVEROIN", late 1800's to early 1900's, with three mermaids --  the one at the top left is arched back to kiss the one on the top right, the third one's tail is intertwined with the other 2, all around them are waves  -- it is easier to see the image in person than on my photos (shininess causes too much glare); case is a curved pocket shape to go into a man's pocket; I have been told variously that silveroin is "a nickel silver", "a nickel alloy" and "white brass".  I gave it a light polishing so I could be certain to report the  condition correctly, and it polished up like silver;
Inside the case is a springed piece of metal to hold the cigarettes in place; the case is  are about 3 1/2" - 3 1/4" long, It is about 1/2" thick on the edges and about 3/4" thick in the middle;
Condition: Overall, this ia a lovely piece  -- looking bright and smooth.  The top of the case with the scene is in excellent condition.  I cannot call it perfect because it does have some very light overall scratching which would come from light use -- but it is very light and does not detract from the piece.   There are no repairs or dents.  The sides show slightly more wear, but again nothing detracting.  It is obvious that the previous owner  took special care to protect the top of the piece because the the bottom does show wear.  It has some scratching and a line of a disruption in the surface (It does not look like corrosion or pitting, but it is more in the surface than a scratch) on the bottom right corner.  The bottom looks much better than it does in the picture as overall the back looks shiny.  The flash over-emphasizes the scratches of course.    #TB30990   $130.00    .....
