Extraordinary oil on wood panel painting depicting Native American thatched huts on an Arizona Indian Reservation. The coloring of the work is especially nice--with a predominance of amber, lavender, and yellow. The style is nearly impressionistic, particularly in the treatment of the background. The painting remains in its original giltwood frame. The backing paper bears two inscriptions in different hands, "Indian Reservation in Arizona--1920" and "Indian Reservation in Ariz From The Schultes 1920". Early images from the American West are extremely desirable, and those depicting Native American life are among the rarest.

Origin: America, 1920. The backing paper also has the original framer's label from the Annex Art Shop in Chicago, Ill.

Condition: original frame and backing paper (paper torn); blacklight examination reveals no inpainting, damage or repair. Size: framed, 15-1/2" x 11"; image size: 12-7/16" x 7-13/16". Extraordinarily high quality and desirable oil on wood panel painting depicting two circular huts with thatched roofs.

Set of four Bohemian glasses, each hand painted with a different pair of dogs. We're not dog experts, but they appear to be Scotties, wolfhounds, spaniels and Dalmatians.

Art Nouveau Imperial Russian silver opera purse from the reign of Czar Nicholas II and Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna. The purse is beautifully engraved with a spider on her web. The spider's body is set with an oval cabochon emerald and her head is a cabochon ruby. A finely detailed 18 karat yellow gold frog appears to be stalking the spider from the edge of her web. The front of the purse has an applied gold inscription, roughly translated as "Little Love", highlighted with a small cabochon sapphire. The interior pocket of the purse was just large enough to hold theatre tickets and perhaps an "emergency" ruble or two! Hallmarked with the Kokoshnik used in the Odessa region, 1896-1908, and also with an unidentified silversmith's mark (perhaps transliterated V.L.).

Origin: Odessa, Russia, 1896-1908. Condition: a few small dings, mostly along the top edge between the ends of the chain right where rings would hit when being carried; apparently there was another applied gold inscription on the back side that is now missing; the interior shows some wear, but is useable. Size (closed): 3-3/4" x 2" excluding chain handle.
