A gentleman from the lower Northern Neck found this Japanese tea service packed away in his barn.  It includes the teapot, lidded sugar, creamer, six cups and saucers and six dessert plates.  All of the pieces are in excellent condition, and most are marked with a stylized leaf design on the bottom, with “Made in Japan.”

One of the more intriguing items that we saw at the Saint Clement’s Island Museum Appraiser Fair two weeks ago was this desktop bookshelf marked “Tiffany.” The wood is a burl walnut, albeit with a couple of minor chips to the veneer, and the ormolu decoration in neo-classical motif is especially fine.
