Find of the Week


The whimsical red and gilt Chinoiserie chandelier above is another 1950's European find from Ellen Ward Scarborough Antiques. Made in Italy, it's a pagoda style piece done in metal that definitely has a fun Tony Duquette quality. But not totally over-the-top.

BTW: The Victoria and Albert Museum has a nice online Chinoiserie style guide. Below is an illustration, included in the V & A guide, of a design for a chair by 18th-century furniture makers William and John Linnell.
