The majority of these items were sourced by a German entrepreneur – his passion and occupation dealt in fine china. Join us in honoring him by scattering those items he collected and cherished. The next generation will never know you picked these items up at an estate sale!

The collection of sterling includes the following standout pieces PLUS Mid Century Modern German flatware and bizarre types of antique serving pieces you never knew existed (but NEED!!)

Tiffany & Company Chrysanthemum sterling silverware is one of the most magnificent and celebrated designs of the 19th century! Take home a twenty-one piece set including a rare punch bowl ladle and the sought after clawed pastry tongs. 

The Georg Jensen Acorn pattern was introduced in 1915 and has since become a sterling silver icon.  Acorn reflects a timeless marriage of Art Nouveau and Art Deco design that looks as elegant today as it has for more than 100 years. Enjoy this eight piece service for six for the next 100 years. 

MASSIVE German mid century sterling silver flatware SETS including a funky 142 piece set created by Bertel Gardberg for WMF. The well-known Scandinavian designer is considered the father of Finnish silversmithing. Just think about how bringing out this cutlery could beautify your holiday table during the holidays for years to come. 

A collection of NEW, old stock 19th and 20th century Meissen porcelain! Featuring B Form service from Ernst August Leuteritz – nothing short of lavish and a shining example of Meissen’s historicism. Additional Meissen service in the most beloved decorative motifs of the Meissen manufactory. Blue Onion and Strewn Flowers.

Meissen has been trailblazing since the very beginning – check out the horse named Maestoso by Erich Oehme for Meissen. The figurine Maestoso is one of the famous horse figurines by Erich Oehme, one of the most significant sculptors of the 20th century. 

MORE tablescapes by Rosenthal, Herend, Wedgwood, KPM, and other renowned makers. 

Additional pieces in The Heirloom Collection include artwork spanning centuries and contents. Featuring a grouping of mid century works from German artist Rudolf Vombek. Vombek made a significant contribution to art in Germany as a color researcher, exploring visual irritation and optical illusion effects. What you’ll find in this event is a collection of pieces known as Before the Color, which is also the title of the last and extensive exhibition of his works at the Märkisches Museum.

Other notable German artists include Paul Wunderlich, known for his Surrealist paintings and erotic sculpture, and Johnny Friedlaender, best known for his pioneering use of aquatint etching.

A Spaniard, Salvatore Dali, signed print illustrating Paradise 25 from The Divine Comedy.
