Reverse painted glass and bronze credenza, c. 1950
On July 2, we received the 40 ft. container of antique and vintage pieces from Paris that we purchased in May. This is probably one of the best shipments ever! Though I am always pleased with what we find on these trips (or I wouldn’t buy), this one caused more excitement with all my designers and showroom staff than any I can remember.
When a shipment arrives, it takes 6 people to physically unload and 3 staff members---Natalie Nix, the JSA Showroom Manager is in charge of all of this. She is one of the most organized people I know and a delightful young woman who loves her job.
Many items can come directly to the showroom---accessories, most of the mirrors, coffee tables and many other pieces that don’t require refurbishing. For this particular shipment, over half came into the showroom once each piece was photographed for our website http://janshowers.com/Shop.
Here are just a few pieces that have come to the floor in the past 2 weeks:
Pair of green Murano vases signed by Pino Signoretto, c. 2000
Mahogany and cane magazine rack in the style of Gio Ponti, c. 1950
