Vintage Spotlight – Folk Art Carved Penguin
Another vintage find! This super cool carved modernist penguin with brass beak and feet made of pine soft pine. Reminded me quite a bit of Hagenauer’s carved pieces. Love the sectioning of the different pieces of wood.
Vintage Spotlight – Carved Folk Art Partridge
Found this cute lil mid century guy recently. Reminds me of the Partridge Family! He has oxidized legs and little feather on its head with carved eye. I originally thought the body was inlaid but it seems that it was artfully stained in sections.
Vintage Spotlight – Original Uten.Silo New In Box
Snagged this super cool original Uten.Silo at opening day of the LA Flea Market! I’d never seen one in person and this one was still in it’s original box with original mounting hardware. It wasn’t a very interesting box otherwise I would have taken a picture. Even the silver “Design M, Ingo Maurer” label, was […]

Vintage Spotlight – New Desky Bits
After going to PA and hanging out with our friends Eli and Amy we saw this super cool clock on their table. It is said, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery (hopefully) so we bought one too! Funnily enough I had an Ebay saved search going for one of these already. It’s a United […]
Vintage Spotlight – Sascha Brastoff Alaska Ceramics
A few original Brastoff ceramics from his Alaska series. The painting is so ahead of its time, it totally fits in with Fleet Street Scandal, Shag, Adam Cruz from House Industries and Sanjay Patel from Pixar. Even looks a little pinstripey and spray-paintey with the beautiful gradients. If the cool painting wasn’t enough, most of […]
Vintage Spotlight – Enzo Mari 16 Animali Puzzle for Danese Milano
I’ve always wanted one of these puzzles and was SUPER excited when I finally found one! It’s definitely the epitome of mid century design. This is the 1972 expanded resin version for Danese Milano and is stamped on the elephant. It even came with the original lid to the box! I definitely prefer this to […]
Vintage Spotlight – 12″ Glass Orb Terrarium with Teak Tripod Base
Lately I’ve really been obsessed with terrariums and wanted to try my hand at creating my own, but I was worried my “brown thumb” would get in the way. I decided to push on anyway and found an awesome mid century teak tripod base (originally went with a giant salad bowl) and went on the […]
Vintage Spotlight: Carl Aubock Collection!
I’ve been lusting over Carl Auboeck’s brass hand and foot paperweights ever since I found out about Viennese Brass. Finally, I couldn’t wait any longer so I decided to go on a hunt for them. The foot was purchased at Hagenauer Gallery (if you want ANYTHING they have it!) and the hand was purchased directly […]
Vintage Spotlight: UPDATE – More Walter Bosse Brass and Display Case!
After visiting a friend’s letterpress shop we acquired an awesome old type drawer used for sorting metal fonts. The perfect place to store all my figurines! Some of the little guys are so small it can be hard to display them but I think type drawers are perfect for displaying them! You can find them […]

Vintage Spotlight: C Jere Enamel Owl
I have a thing for owls and was finally able to nab myself a blue enamel owl by C Jere. I was surprised at the beautiful detail and large size. I’m obsessed now and might have to get an orange owl friend for the opposite wall! Remember… BUY VINTAGE!
Vintage Spotlight: Wooden Elephant Hidden Trinket Box
I recently found this super cute Elephant Trinket Box on my expeditions. It reminded me a lot of the animal boxes by Karl Zahn for Areaware. His head opens up to reveal a little place to put small items. He has a mark on the bottom that I’ve not been able to find anything out […]
