Antiques Galore!Wednesday, July 21, 2010
The HF team was hard at work last week merchandising a truck full of antiques. The pieces are old. They are heavy as hell. And they are just divine. Check out some of the great pics that were taken.
The t-shaped pillar took a small army of 8 people to set up. It's over a hundred years old and weighs in at a slim 900 pounds.
I'm not sure if I should be scared or laugh. This statue will be a conversation piece for sure.
Two remarkably heavy, stone face Buddhas sit on top of this beautiful Amazon Buffet.
The India Buddha statue stands at about 8 feet tall.
The hand detail work on this 10 foot high pillar is exquisite.
The Naga tribe, one of the last headhunter tribes, used this antique as a rice mill. It is cut out of one solid tree and makes for a dramatic, 12 foot coffee table.
The rice mill/coffee table makes for a nice decorative pillow display too.
The craftsmanship on this antique door is impeccable, featuring hand in-lay mother of pearl.
The unique brass hardware on the door is one of 8 antique doors that were brought in.
