Spoils of Time
A Southern Indian Brass Lota with chiseled and incised decoration of animated, turbaned figure in roundel repeated around the girth on a ground of saz vine with palmettes above a band of acanthus vine and birds. An inscription is stippled along the everted rim. Good condition - over cleaned, probably belying some greater age. The interior testifies as much with deep, even natural oxidation from use over time. Height: about 5 13/16 inches (14.76 cm)

Spoils of Time
The lorgnette handle with octagonal mother of pearl paneling in three sections divided by gold filled fixtures. the end with deep, bright engraved end cap and the telescoping gold filled extender with horn, dovetailed retainer and smaller, simple end cap. Good condition with an almost imperceptible small "flea bite" to a corner of one mother of pearl panel and a tiny dent in the gold filled ornamental end cap - also not at all distracting (try to find lower left leaf in our last enlargement.) Length extended 7 3/4 inches (19.69cm). Length closed 4 1/2 inches (11.43cm)

Spoils of Time
Listed Price $365.00
A fine pair of 19th century clambroth glass candle holders. Stout but elegant baluster turned sticks with broad, stable feet. Fine and practical decorative accents. The reference to clambroth says it all - the milky glass almost translucent (more so toward the foot - see second illustration) with opaque bubbles throughout. Good condition. These are probably pretty early and likely not common to fetch a pair. Would be a refreshing "stand in" for brass in period interior. They are tall at height 10 1/8 inches each.
