This Arts and Crafts color woodblock print shows a peasant girl in a mountainous landscape herding goats. The John Toomey Gallery is one of the top auction houses in the world for quality antiques from the Arts and Crafts period as well as Mid-Century Modern, for those of you rehabbing or furnishing a modern house. This Gustave Baumann colored woodblock print entitled “Pines Grand Canyon" sold for $15,000. This hanging fixture sold for $175, the fireplace screen for $700 and the plant stand for $400. And the best part is, that this is all available right here in our own backyard of Oak Park, Illinois.
Check out our Directories of Antique Shops & Malls, Events (including Shows, Auctions and Appraisal Fairs), and Antique Resources (including Chicagoland Auction Houses, Book and Reference Sources, Collector Clubs and Antique Supplies).
We have over 100 antique categories, including antique jewelry, antique furniture, antique toys, Asian antiques and many, many more! Each auction normally has 400-600 lots of Arts & Crafts and Prairie Syle antiques, including furniture, pottery, metalwares, lighting, textiles, glassware and more. So, I thought I would write something, for first time visitors from their site, about Arts and Crafts period, Craftsman and Prairie Style antiques.
The Rare Gustav Stickley inlaid chest on chest (Harvey Ellis influence, in maple with inlaid woods and pewter design at top and around each handle, with fine original finish, some stains to top, signed with red decal) sold for $24,000.
There are also pieces that may help with restoration; such as wall and ceiling lighting fixtures, fireplace tools and screens, and even some stained glass windows. I know not all rehabbers are doing Arts and Crafts or Prairie Style houses, but certainly a number are.
