This is a vintage desk from the 1940s and I’m not sure which I like more–the simple, elegant design or the really great patina that has come with age.  It comes from an artist’s workshop and has a single drawer.  – Ford Huniford Check it out.

I really love these blue 20th Century Windsor chairs.  The color really makes them unique and more versatile than a traditional wood grain.  I can as easily envision them in a modern setting as in a more traditional one. – Ford Huniford Check them out.

I really love antique utility objects because their form and function are inseparable.  This antique cranberry rake is a perfect example.  Made for scooping cranberries out of a bog, it stands alone beautifully as an art object. – Ford Huniford Check it out.

Talk about one of a kind! This vintage open sided terrarium is so original and fabulous that it could work equally well in a historic or modern setting.  I love its laboratory quality and can imagine it filled with a great assortment of plants, mosses, maybe even orchids. – Ford Huniford Check it out.

Now here’s a collection I can recommend.  These fruit dryers would look fantastic mounted together on a wall.  The simple shapes, that are really based on utility, give them a great graphic visual appeal.  If you don’t already collect these, what better place to start? – Ford Huniford Check them out.
