Funny French satirical transfer plate making fun of the sport of fishing (La Peche a la Ligne), a very amusing collectible and great gift for the enthusiast of the sport. The caption reads: “Mais non, avant de rejeter votre soulier, regardez s'il n'y a pas un poisson dedans" Dating from about 1925, this plate is 7 3/4 inches in diameter and is marked on the back with the stamp for St. Amand Etablisements Ceramiques. Condition is excellent.

Very nice early 17th century bronze mortar and pestle, probably from the Le Puy area of central France which had many foundries in that era. Note the good detail in the vertical elements. It is about 2.8 inches tall while the top diameter is 4.7 inches. It is heavy and has a good patina. We believe the pestle is original to the mortar.

One of the classic early views of Harvard College. Under the image it says, "A Westerly View of the Colledges in Cambridge New England." This is an original etching, not a reproduction, from the second quarter of the 19th century. It was made for a book, but there were extra copies left over after the book was published and bound. We purchased a number of these prints which came from the descendants of the family that owned the publishing house...
