2021 Sneak Preview – Animalia

In anticipation of the 2021 online San Francisco Fall Show which will go live on InCollect on October 15 at 9:00 am PST/noon EST, we wanted to share some sneak previews of our dealer’s wares. In 2016, the Show’s theme was “Animalia – Animals in Art & Antiques”, exploring our fascination with the beauty and mystery of the animal kingdom, as well as its symbolism throughout the ages. Animals have proven to be a never-ending source of inspiration and delight: the 2021 Show offerings include many pairs that would not have looked out of place on Noah’s Ark:

From Bardith: Pair of Chinese Stoneware Cats, 2nd half of the 19th century
From Stephan Jones: Charming bird motif stoneware tile frame mirror in cobalt blue and seafoam green glaze, France, circa 1950’s
From Il Segno del Tempo: Wiener bronze bulldogs bookends, Austria 1870
From Artistoric: Antique Minton Tile designed by Christopher Dresser, circa 1870
From Ronald Phillips: A George III giltwood and bronze painted mirror attributed to Peter Bogaert, English, circa 1805
