Antique Delinieres D&C Limoges France Art Nouveau Birds Bamboo Vase 1894-1900 PT

DelinieresAntique Delinieres & Co (D&Co) Limoges France Art Nouveau Birds on Bamboo Vase (circa 1894-1900).  

Marked on base D&C France with artist signed “M.V.S.” 

Unusual hand-painted antique Limoges signed vase dates to the beginning of the Art Nouveau movement, and is a departure from the more common floral patterns of the era. 

Delicate Asian inspired design of quail birds and bamboo, excellent artistry. 

Approx 6-1/2″ tall x 8″ wide

Condition is overall very good with some age wear as expected to the gold on the collar and some areas on the bulbous portion where the white is visible through the applied gold. A few light marks but no cracks or repairs and nothing that detracts from how nicely this is on display. 

Delinieres & Co is a revered name in Limoges history; this unusual antique vase would be a lovely addition to your collection.  This and many other collectibles available in our ebay store connectibles.

Rimowa Integral Vintage Aluminum Travel Train Makeup Carry On Case Germany

RimowaPictured here is a Germany made Vintage Rimowa Integral Aluminum Travel / Makeup / Train / Carry On Case.  Has seen some use, but these cases were made to last.  Has some small dents and scratches but still very serviceable and has that classic Rimowa look.

The case has a mirror mounted on the inside of the lid.  The mirror has some damage and could easily be replaced if desired.  Hinges and latch all work well and the key does lock the case.  The case measures 15″ x 9″ x 8″.

Please examine the pictures closely for condition (and excuse my reflection in the mirror).  This is really a nice classic piece of lightweight vintage luggage available in our ebay store connectibles.

Ernst Bohne Antique Gnome Figural Candle Holder Set 2 Candlestick Black Forest


We are delighted to offer one of the most interesting antique sets of candle holders that we have ever found. 7″ tall each, marked on bases with Ernst Bohne Sogne (sons) blue anchor stamp dating from approx 1856-1900′s Germany.  In addition each has “EBS” stamp and number 312 inside the base.

Fantastically detailed Gnome woodsmen are climbing onto “faux” stag horn trees on the lookout for something wonderful!  The details on the figures are outstanding; so much so that it took several looks to determine these weren’t actually carved wood but fine porcelain. Lots of photos to see details.

  • German black forest type motif, these are “statement” pieces that will be the standout of your display or collection.
  • Condition overall is excellent, only imperfections are on the top candle holder part of the Gnome with the lantern – there is a tiny chip on rim, and the top has been expertly repaired with a few visible cracks. These do not detract from how well these display. 
  • Unique opportunity to add these to your collection; unlikely to surface again.

This and many other unique collectibles can be found in our ebay store connectibles.

Vintage Airplane Figural Brooch Pin Plane Travel Map Air France Africa Aviation

Flight Pin

This listing features one of the more unusual and hard-to-find vintage pins we have ever discovered. 2 figural airplanes are suspended over a round glass dome covering a unique map that depicts African countries placed right next to Paris, France. Circa 1950′s – 1960′s. 

Please look at photo to see the details.

After much research, we have not been able to discover another similar one. Our best guess is that it was a promotional pin either for a travel agency or airlines; perhaps Air France when they started flying to African countries and this was a way to “connect” the 2 areas. 

  • Remarkable design.
  • Measures a substantial 3″, a true statement piece of jewelry.
  • Excellent condition, appears new and unused. 
  • Unique gift for your favorite traveler or travel agent or Airline personnel; unlikely to ever be seen again!

Please visit our ebay store – connectibles to see this pin, and many other unusual collectibles.

three dollsPictured is a charming lot including 3 original 1936 Madame Alexander Dionne Quintuplet 7″ composition baby dolls, each sitting in an original vintage Strombecker wood rocking chair.

Delightful for display!


  • 3 dolls, all marked Dionne and Alex or Alexander on back of head and back.  VERY good condition with nice hand painted faces; two of them have the left arm slightly askew and not completely in the socket but nothing that seriously detracts.
  • Some crazing, some wear to paint on fingers; look at photos carefully for condition details. Doll in pink has a pencil mark on back that we did not try to clean; doll in yellow has the initial “M” on back, perhaps for “Marie”. 
  • Dresses are reproductions and in very good condition.
  • Two have newer bloomers.
  • THREE Strombecker 1940′s – 1950′s wooden rocking chairs are all stamped on base, measure 7″ high, and overall very good with general light wear.
