I attended the most amazing and fabulous 1950′s auction last week. There were so many cool things to look at and it was so much fun! It was like a quick little trip to the Smithsonian.
Can you believe these chairs are in such good shape for being sixty something years old?
This “hello scalloped salmon” table is so very awesome. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a funky cool 1950′s apartment? Yes it would! If I was twenty something I’d do it.
How about this tiered little number?
There were piles and piles of textiles and clothes. Don’t you just love the whales and rowers in this fabric? It’s perfect for a kids room cafe curtains and tells such a great little story.
I didn’t grab a whole lot of fifties memorabilia because there were some serious collectors bidding. I couldn’t resist these darling umbrellas with lucite and tortoiseshell handles and managed to take them home!
The graphics are great….Keep your Martini extra dry!
I also got these great gilt glass trays that are just perfect for a glam vanity or dresser.
What I did get was more chairs!! I la la love the carved detail and majestic height on this chair.
It’s so very pretty the way it is. I may add some paint but will have to think about it a little bit. Maybe a grey? This chair is really going to be gorgeous and such a statement piece. With all the detailing a solid textural fabric will be the perfect compliment.
I also grabbed these two guys. I love the wood wing backs and the caning is in perfect shape. They look like RH chairs don’t they? I still have to pick these babies up!
What a sweet little desk. It’s not exactly the kind of chippy finish I like but I know it will clean up quite nicely. Don’t you think it would be perfect as a bedside table? Just add a book and cup of tea, Ahhh, how nice indeed.
It’s got several secret compartments and the top slides forward for writing. A little work and some new hardware and it will be good as new, maybe better!
There were many oak pieces and I scored this lovely deep dresser which I simply cannot wait to tackle. I got a few more assorted furniture goodies to work with, including an old slant top desk with scalloped little drawer, a music cabinet, and assorted chairs. Can’t wait to get the paint cans open!
My day ended perfectly with the acquisition of these lovely Limoges plates and bowls. I’ll be stocking the salvage yard with these wonderful finds so stay tuned for refurbishing fun!
