Antiques Considered - Nov. 21, 2012

A lady in the Northern Neck inherited this alabaster urn many years ago.  It is 16 inches tall, and has a lid that is inverted in this picture.  The owner keeps it that way as the lid has been broken in several places, as has the neck, which has been restored and painted to match the color of the alabaster, thereby covering up the restoration.   She thinks that the urn is

A New York family now living in the Northern Neck has owned this pair of French chests for almost a century.  The grandmother, long deceased, purchased them in Paris in the 1920s. They are walnut with Louis XVI legs.  The dovetailing of the drawers is deep, and the overall condition of the pieces is excellent.  The finish and the hardware are original. The backs are unfinished.

This art glass bowl belongs to the family of a lady who recently died.  She was an inveterate collector, and was fond of art glass.  This piece is acid etched with shades of green and black.  It is 4 inches high and 5½ inches in diameter.  It has one slight chip on the rim, but appears to have no other flaws.  Etched into the lower portion is the signature of  A. deLatte, and the word Nancy.

A family formerly from Colonial Beach purchased this set of china at an antiques shop in Alabama almost 40 years ago.  All of the pieces are labeled “John Haviland” in a semicircle with “Bavaria” below.  The inside rim is custard color, and the gold leafing is in excellent condition.  All of the pieces were perfect, but the owner broke one of the lidded vegetable dishes about 30 years ago.

 "Ditchley" is one of the Northern Neck's greatest homes.  Built by Kendall Lee in 1752, it sits overlooking Dividing Creek and the Chesapeake Bay in the lower reaches of Northumberland County, about four miles from Kilmarnock.  The name derives from "Ditchley Park" in Oxfordshire , England, the home of Henry Lee, the Ranger of Woodstock during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.  In 1930 it became the Virginia home of Alfred I. duPont and his wife, Jessie Dew Ball duPont. 

They restored the mansion to its former glory, and introduced modern conveniences, such as a bathroom for every bedroom.  Their principal home remained "Nemours" in Wilmington, Delaware, from whence they traveled back and forth to their home in Palm Beach, Florida either on the Seaboard Coastline Railway, of which they were the principal stockholders on their yacht, the "Nenemosha."
