Three-Dimensional Metal and Acrylic Painting of Beach Chairs by the Seaside

Three-Dimensional Metal and Acrylic Painting of Beach Chairs by the Seaside

Not our usual fare, but we were completely taken with the uniqueness of this three-dimensional painting with its vibrant colors, realistic depiction of sand and sea, and the striped chairs, which put you smack in the middle of a French plage (beach). Overall in good vintage condition, there are some losses to the metal frames of the beach chairs, a patch where the applied "sand" has worn away, and maybe a bit of bleed-through of rust in the sky (or it could be the way the artist painted it), but we think this only adds to its realistic feel. Perfect anywhere at a beach home and stunning when paired with our red "Pecheur" painted bistro set with 8 chairs (Stock # FDS 1019).

Flared French Green Demi-Glazed Terracotta Pot

Flared French Green Demi-Glazed Terracotta Pot

We adore the vibrant glazing on this creamy-colored terracotta pot, as well as its elegant flared form. Dating to the mid-20th century, it has a single original drain-hole that can be plugged if you would like to use this as a large vase. In gorgeous overall condition, there is a small chip to the bottom rim, shown in the photos, right near the drain-hole, but it is invisible when the pot is standing. Please note that pots glazed on the inside were never intended to be used as planters, although clearly this one was at one time. It will be fine left outside planted up in mild winter climates, but must be brought inside during freezing weather in harsh climates. Beautiful alone as a focal point on a table or in a corner, or paired with some of our other green-glazed pots shown in the last two photos, this beauty will give you many years of visual pleasure and utility as well.
