Showing the Art Deco flair so typical of the work of the Farber Brothers of New York, New York from the period, this 6 1/2 inch tall compote has a Cambridge Glass insert of clambroth or clear satin glass in a 7 lobe shape. It is  in excellent condition. 

It is signed on the bottom of the base not only with the words Farber Bros. NYC but also the patent number 87496 and 924011.

 This is a pair of Art Deco perfume bottles.

The bottle on the left with the carved stopper of a couple dancing stands 2 1/2 inches without the stopper and 5 inches tall with it. The dauber is missing on the stopper. There is no damage to this great stopper. However, there a few chips to two corners of the bottle and two small chips to one of the side of the panels. The  bottle is not signed but has much wear on the bottom. This bottle was purchased in Montreal Canada.

The bottle on the right has a great Art Deco look and appeal to it.  The bottle base stands 2 inches tall and the bottle is 5 inches tall with the stopper in it.  Both the stopper and bottle have diagonally etched lines. The stopper has cross-hatching on it. The dauber is all there as it fits down into the bottle perfectly.  There is one small chip to one facet of the stopper.  The base has no damage. 

But both and add them to your Art Deco perfume bottle collection today.  This beautiful Roseville jardiniere is from the Futura line of the Roseville Pottery Company.   This piece was produced by the Roseville Pottery Company in 1928.  It comes in two colors combinations, this one in what is referred to as the gray pink combo is the scarcer of the two.  

Shown on page 37  of the Collectors' Compendium of Roseville Pottery by Randall B. Monsen, printed in 1995, one can see it clearly there.  The jardiniere was produced in a 6 inch, 7 inch, 8 inch, 9 inch and 10 inch size.  This is the hard to find 9 inch jardiniere.

 Jacques Potin "Les Parasols Rouges" lithograph.  Potin was born in 1920. A very similar but smaller 11 x 13¾ in. (27.9 x 35 cm.), unframed painting was Lot 66 at a Christie's 2008 auction. This lithograph itself measures 20 inches wide x 14 3/4 inches high.  The mat is 4" wide and the frame measures 27 inches x 22 inches.  The lower left is artist-signed "Epreuve d'artste" (Artist's Proof) and the lower right Jacques Potin in pencil.  

The back has the title, the word Lithographie in French and the artist's signature.  On the stretcher is a piece of green paper with "Lithograph, Detruit, Paris" and a red paper star attached to it. Now "detruit" means destroyed in French, so not sure to what the "detruit" refers. Also, there is a paper label  of the framer Lexington Gallery in New York City as well as the Skinner Gallery label which states 1378 Lot !5. That is where I purchased it in 1991 for $275.00.  It is in good shape though the frame bottom corners seem a bit loose but that is how I purchased it at Skinner's.
