ElephantLiquorFr.Misc.    # 1 of 2 French liquor Antique sets--each different figures)    Napoleon III French Antique Elephant Figure Liquor Set. A wonderful decorative Liquor French set having six side small cups for beverages or your choice. A great display table piece and yet useful when needed.  The Elephant is magnificent in addition to his coloring of the peacock colour  holder attached to his center back having hand painted motifs surrounding it.  There is a little faucet like motif at front and the upper stopper is missing as shown however any small perfume top would fit it. Please see photos.....  The Peacock colour cups attached are also hand painted in white to match the upper holder having 4 of these and 2 in golden colour on sides of the elephant.  The one golden colour cups/glasses has a small indent at the very bottom as shown in my photos..like a piece is out of it.   The remaining Peacock blue cups due to age have chips at the rims... on all of them and one even having a larger chip on the side of the rim. However one can find on ebay any or these smaller cups to switch out and use if desired. They still hold water however each having issues as mentioned above. All in all it remains charming and a beautiful piece to use and impress your guests. 

 Measurements are in photos please see to show sizes.  Measurements of the Peacock colour glasses/cups  are 1-7/8" tall and the 2 golden colour glasses/cups 1-3/4".  The Price is based on condition.  Also, my photos are always part of my description.  TRULY a difficult piece to come by and certainly a Unique Antique French treasure.

Misc.CamelLiquorSet.   (# 2 of Different French antique Liquor sets)  A Unique Napoleon III and hard to find French Antique Liquor Set with Camel holding six small cuts for beverages. A Magnificent display piece to use and yet makes a great display piece for any type of drink, soda, water, juice etc.  A wonderful figure of a Camel holding a glass holder at upper and then displays the sides holding cups--4 cups in clear having decorative hand painted motifs surroundings and 2 cups in gold with blue handles.    The cups due to age, have very minor nibbles surrounding top & the gold cups having a area on their bases ( shown in my photos) of slit taken out..  However, none of this effects its uniqueness and quality of this piece--as they are most difficult to come by. The metal very upper center stopper is removable. The prior owner told me she had her husband add more plaster to the base as the old was getting fragile due to age-- its beautiful now. 

Measures:   7.75" Tall without handle being up and 8.5" with top handle up.  The width including the spout is 6.25" and the Depth 4.5".    Cups in gold are 1 5/8" tall and clear with motifs are 1 5/8" tall.              Price:  $ 850.

( 6 lights inside)  Please see my photos as they are part of my description.  Flaws:  The bottom wood has cracks/chips in the wood- due to age surrounding all sides and back and the interior wallpaper is torn as shown. I had a new plug put on it by an electrician and its ready to display your treasures.  Its a gorgeous special piece as shown and its great when the lights on on being one can use it for lighting as well. The light sockets have the old porcelain as shown and you can add your size of bulb as my bulbs do not come with this special piece.  The sockets hold a European bulb being they are a little wider at the base and extremely easy to purchase on ebay or stores.  This is certainly a charming European antique treasure to display anywhere.

#Misc...9pcBackplts.  Lovely set of French Antique Brass Door Back plates / Back Plates.  This is a large set total of 9 pcs. of Antique French Brass Door Back Plates--they are used  before one adds on the door handle and protects the door from all those finger prints with less cleaning of the door in this surrounding area.  You would add this first to your door surrounding the key hole and then add your handle. 

You can leave them like this in the colour or shine them up if you prefer.  I have laid them flat down on my floor so you can see they are flat--all of them.  Please notice the hold sizes on them--some being larger to accommodate someone's key hole and some smaller. 

I placed the tape measure next to one so you can see the size along with the width. They are great in appearance on any door and truly adds beauty to ones door/s.

Price:  $ 200.

                                      

Misc.Pr.AngelHandels.  Lovely pair of heavy iron unique looking French  Antique Handles.  These are very old from the early 1800's or so.  They are heavy and what special about them is that each handle has a Angel Face on the center as shown.  I have no idea what they were used for but they are special and hope someone can find a special place to use them at.  They could be used for perhaps a Towel bar or a piece of furniture or whatever you choose they will be unique.  They will need a very good cleaning as they are dirty from the long past where they once were.  If you want you could paint them and add a nice varnish for protection and use them somewhere.. ( just an idea of course)  The handles are iron I think as they are heavy but the center where the angel part is is made of something else... very unique in appearance.  Please see my photos well as they need cleaning and are rusty.

Measures:     10.5 by 5.5 and the angels are   5"   long....                Price: 165.00

                     

Misc2PrsBronzeHandles:   Wonderful Antique French heavy Bronze door handles.  You will be getting 4 antique French Door Handles as shown. They need cleaning to shine and  you might wish to add a varnish to keep the shine.  They are heavy and made of all bronze--they are very strong as well.  They remain in very good condition other then only one  ( shown in my photos )   when I laid it on our  marble floor it did not touch completely to the marble floor--I think that when screws are added and and these are placed in a wooden door or metal they will lay flat ..  We had them up ourselves and they were perfect when attached to our door but now we removed the door and have a iron door-----we cannot use these anymore.  Also, you could use them on any cabinet or wood closer refrigerator doors... they have a number of purposes they could be used for. 

Price: $ 485.

                       

GermanSanta/Misc.  Antique German Electric Moving Santa Claus on his sleigh and pulling his reindeer.   This is a wonderful exciting piece as when you plug it in the Santa moves back and forth pulling his most beautiful reindeer.  The Santa's face looks to be made out  a light weight ceramic or maybe paper Mache... I am not that sure...................and his clothing is fabric in red wool. 

His face is darling like a old fashion Santa appears.  His white sleigh holds him inside his seat where I showed photos up close where he moves back and forth from his seat area pulling his reins. This is also age related to fading, wear etc. 

 The sleigh is made out of some type of  wood having plaster coating and then a gloss paint....one nail I noticed sticks out a little toward the back.  If you view the very back you will notice in my large photos that one bottom of the sleigh blade is slightly slanted... however it does not effect it in any way.. its due to the oldness of it and merely wanted to point it out.  His basket is wicker and holds a cotton bag for his stuff.  I added red tissue paper also to give it more of a red effect... however if you wish you might want to add some small boxes of wrapped up things to place inside his holder... just an idea...

  There are a few minor chips on the sleigh also and minor paint missing shown in my photos also.  However, for its age it remains in Beautiful condition. Again everything is age related wear.

.Regarding the plug.... when I purchased it .... it had a European plug on the end for plugging it in.... However, I had it replaced with an American plug... BUT... its a 220 Volt....  ... I had a 220 volt outlet here in our home so I plugged it in and he works beautiful.... you can see a video of it also playing on my link below...

The deer is most beautiful as well with his tall antlers and glass eyes...  His covering is wool and his antlers appear to be wool felt.. 

This could  have been a Window Display or used for Private use.

The Santa has painted eyes ..  Santa's hands and feet feel like ceramic..  The Reins are gold metallic but faded.

Measurements:  I placed my measuring tape on sides and top and width to show you the exact size of him... He is a wonderful size to display anywhere and watch him move...

Everything I mentioned is what I see and my personal opinion.
