|Sheraton Period demilune card table 1780|
Just when we firmly established that we are dealers in twentieth century modern pieces, we run into an estate of really fine eighteenth century pieces. Lewis brought home a hand painted card table from around 1790. He also found a tall bureau signed and dated 1723. This appears to be from somewhere around Austria. Both of these pieces are in remarkable condition. It seems that they came out of an antique dealers estate. Unlike most dealers who keep those beautiful damaged items too lovely to throw away, this dealer seemed to keep the best for himself.
