Birds of a Feather, in Wood (not Leather)

20130209-133627.jpg
This is rather an interesting little creation of Stein World. With its neutral tan color and compact size it can be stuck just about anywhere, but it has a few details that keep it from being commonplace. On the doors of the cabinet there is a carved design of birds and foliage, very subtle as it is the same hue as the rest of the cabinet. When these doors are open, the birds are on the reverse side of them as well. And instead of being presented with the usual shelf or two, inside are three tray drawers, also carved in the bird design. The price starts at $369, but do not fear, it doesn’t end there. For the sincerely interested, nothing is set in stone.

From Germany, with Love

This set of unique dishes would be perfect for a bird lover with a taste for china. Each of the 6 plates portray a different songbird along with some brightly colored flora to set off the feathered fauna. Though these were manufactured some time ago, the porcelain-white base, the foam-green edge, and the golden lace detail have a high luster and steady feel.

An interesting bit of trivia about these dishes – they are double stamped. The first (chronologically) label is in fine black script, for the most part illegible. However, one can discern that they were made in Germany. The second stamp, bolder in dark green with a more promonant logo, clearly says Western Germany. Intriguing.

20121218-175229.jpg The dishes are set on a consigned dining table with 6 chairs and additional leaf, $750.
