Alameda Pt. fair this Sunday, 4/1

We will be at Alameda on Sunday, the usual spots, booth nos. N-15,2. Once again the weather is supposed to be sunny, dry. Here are some photos of new pieces. New inventory for this month include a very nice primitive painted chest, circa 1869. This cabinet below I started with the carcasse of a built-in, purchased at Urban Ore. Made of oak. The leaded glass windows are from the midwest. Victorian cast iron hardware.

Here are a couple shots of cabinet built around some vintage leaded glass doors purchased again at Urban Ore. The beadboard used for sides and top came from a recently deconstructed Petaluma feed warehouse. Victorian era cast iron hardware.

Shutter door jelly cabinet. Shutter is from collection purchased last year from a Conneticut supplier. Decorative top trim is from deconstructed victorian mirror surround. Beadboard side wood from Ross Mansion.

This cabinet is another built-in purchased recently at Urban Ore. Distressed to reveal several shades of green. The beadboard side wood also has shades of green, salvaged from SF victorian remodel. I added some beveled mirrors in the back, amythyst crystal knobs as drawer handles.

Here is a very large display piece built for Taylors Home and Garden on 24th st in Noe Valley. The architectural elements used on the crest came from a Pacific Hts. Mansion.
