2021 Sneak Preview – Written in Stone

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. The longevity of pieces made of rock and stone often means that they symbolize the divine and the eternal. We also associate wisdom with this substance that is so permanent; a substance that endures age through age. Here’s a few timeless examples:

From Finnegan Gallery: A stunning and large late 18th century English trough in Cotswold stone with a fabulous hand carved surface which over many years has now acquired a pleasing surface of lichen and moss
From Engs-Dimitri: Stone Figure of Saint John The Evangelist, French, Burgundian, 15th century
From Barbara Israel Garden Antiques: A composition stone bench with curved top, the supports with unadorned volute scrolls, American, circa 1950
From Antonio’s Bella Casa: A 14th century hand-carved solid marble downspout featuring a 360 degree series of reliefs depicting iconic, arched Gothic windows surmounted by quatrefoil medallions
From Garden Court Antiques: Vintage French faux bois outdoor garden or patio pedestal table with a broad round table top of mottled slab concrete and a thick fibrous “stem” all stabilized by a spreading and substantial base
From The Chinese Porcelain Company: Hand carved stone table, 2018, carved and assembled by hand from various geological strata of the Andes, Peru
