Antiques Considered - Dec. 24, 2014

This pair of milk glass candlesticks came from the altar of the original Saint Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Kilmarnock.  They are in excellent condition, and bear no imprint of the maker.  They are eight inches high.  The church was built in 1885, and served as the parish church until 1956, when the present brick church was constructed on the adjoining lot.

This print of The University of Virginia belongs to a family, one of whose members graduated from the school almost a century ago.  The picture was taken out of its shadowbox frame at the framer’s where the present owner had taken it to be remounted.  He found that it was wet-mounted, meaning that it is glued to the backing.  The colors are faded slightly, but the overall condition is good.  The copyright date is 1907.

A stoneware collector in Charlottesville recently purchased this jug at a consignment shop there.  He paid $32., and would like to know if the piece is worth the money.  The condition is excellent, there being no cracks or chips.  He thinks the jug might be a Shenandoah Valley product, but it is unmarked.  It is 12 inches high and six inches in diameter.

A collector from Lancaster County purchased this Victorian walnut sideboard at an antiques shop in Richmond about 10 years ago.  It has the original finish and is in excellent condition and complete except for the missing escutcheon on the drawer on the right in the photograph.  All of the carving, which is part of the wood panels, and not the result of an applied technique, has survived intact.
