WHAT'S NEW AT ALEXIS ANTIQUES THIS WEEK

Recently I was in suburban Chicago and came back with some lovely china from a lovely 92 year old lady leaving her home of 59 years, a home FILLED with historic memorabilia, china, glass, Wedgwood, French china, you name it, she has it! A retired teacher, she had many interests which are beautifully reflected in her collections. In the coming days we will have her beautiful set of 1960s era "Eastern Flowers" Queens Ware displayed on our website - it seems I may even have an original Wedgwood ad for this pattern which will likely be added in for a buyer who might enjoy having it. There is some old Brownfields china which looks very much like it was designed by famed Wedgwood and Minton designer Thomas Allen. We also have a great historic plate showing a different scene of Fort Ticonderoga than what we already have in stock, and a spectacular polychrome, mint condition "Jenny Lind" plate. For those of you who love the brown Aesthetic transferware of the late 1800s, you'll find a large, two handled floor urn/vase too. It would be gorgeous with dried fall flowers, sunflowers, feathers, or whatever your imagination can conjure up! So stay tuned and visit the website this week for some new "sights".
