Antique-of-the-Week : A framed 1880's Photogravure

Getting that Victorian look is more than parlor sets and  tables. Sucessful Victorian Formailty is dependent on the right accessories too. In addition to our fine antique furniture we always have on hand several hundred pieces of art. Everything from lithos and photogravures to original watercolors and oils from a period rouughly between 1840-1900.

Today's offering is a lovely 1880's era photogravure from the  folio of prints we obtained. This piece is called "The Martyr's Daughter" by Albert Baur. This lovely matted print is framed with a very attractive gold frame and is priced at 75.00. Inquire as to shipping.

We are also pleased to announce that we have opened on Antiques.com:
http://www.antiques.com/dealers/34818/Victorian-Antiquities

Over the next few weeks we will be listing hundreds of items, many of which not listed on our current e-commerce sites on our New Antiques.com location. This will provide an avenue for many higher end pieces that are sitting in our warehouse. All of this will be part of our planned rollout for our new Cincinnati store which will combine Victorian interior design services, our antique showroom and "Gallery 1885" which is dedicated to Victorian Art. And of course our latest venture the Cincinnati Stencil Company

Needless to say we have a very busy next few weeks just to get the new site uploaded and running, Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
