In recent years I have begun to notice commercial fixtures showing up in my client's homes. Most people are familiar with the commerical grade stoves and refrigerators in high end homes but recently I have noticed commercial display cases showcasing everything from jewelry to vintage toys to a man's tie collection.
The case above is an Arts and Crafts jewlry case with a trestle base. It is described as having 'key and tenon' contruction and a shoefoot base with brass caps. The finish is original. It sold at Treadway Gallery in Cincinnati in March of 2007 for $600.
The case below is a Lavico Men's Jewelry Display case. it is made of clear glass and oak with three inner shelves and a lower storage drawer. It will be sold on July 29, 2009 at Tom Harris Auctions in Marshalltown, IA. The estimate on this case is $200-$300. To bid on this auction click here.
