Dear friends & clients: We have more Fine Arts & Antiques than we can possibly begin to keep up with, as to , and have taken time off from selling. This has been extended and enforced by internet, travel, postal, health, and severe weather problems in France – the local post & I were snowbound for a week! Group photos will give you a slight idea of the depth of my collections, and Elly's inventory - keep watching this page. R. Josef
Art Déco was a logical outgrowth of Cubism and Futurism - at the end of WWI,the enormous movementrapidly spread from artists to architects and designers in virtually every aspect of material culture -and the world center of Décowas Paris! The French Arts & Crafts Movement is less-known, but pre-dated the 1890’s, and interfaced with Art Nouveau and Art Déco, towards Modernism.
What you see on is considerably less than 1% of what we own – if International Visibility ever improves, you’ll see a lot more - but we’re not holding our breath. Due to the severity of the problem, I strongly advise buyers to look at Elly’s UK store – numerous, yet basic categories one would expect do not even exist – and you’ll find a number of rarities, visible in group photos.
We are independently listed with the New England Appraisers Association, for France or England.
Condition: as described, and as-seen, but basically excellent. As mentioned above, these have been treated for woodworm. The panels retain their original varnish – Elly has very recently “fed” the wood from the front with pure linseed oil. Photos are high resolution – use magnification for viewing details. Please ask, if you wish additional photos.

Height – 103 cm. (40 & 1/2”): width – 52 cm. (20 & 1/2”): thickness – 4 cm. (1 & 1/2”): Total weight – 12.6 kilos, not including packaging.
We don't charge for packing & handling, except for very large pieces that have to be crated, & always offer grouped rate posting, with no time limits.
We ship from both France & the UK – please read listings carefully – rates & conditions are substantially different.
We usually mail within 5 to 7 working days from clearance of payment, but do request that buyers be understanding of delays due to illness, severe weather, or computer problems: this is strictly a small business, with no employees!
Buyers leaving less than 5-star response (no longer invisible) will be permanently black-listed.
This is not a "decorator" shop - ’s “Hassle-free returns” does not apply to arbitrary whim!
Returns accepted - if: there is a major problem with the age, condition or origin of a piece as described; and this is confirmed by a qualified expert with professional credentials.
Photographs of any alleged damage are required - they are mandatory for insurance claims.
What you pay for shipping is our actual cost – despite lowered fuel costs, international shipping is stupidly expensive - we have absolutely no control over rates – and even so, lose 4% to PayPal, and often absorb extra costs, such as double-boxing.
International buyers – please inquire, as to mailing costs!
Note: Our independent certifications with the New England Appraisers Association (in both France & England) expedite Customs clearances, and prevent duties being incorrectly imposed on antiques conforming to the 100 years legal dateline, thus saving buyers 10% to 43% in relevant countries.
From France, the postal system is fast, efficient, flexible, & based on weight; rates have recently changed, but generally remain less than those of the UK, for smaller parcels. Up to 2 kilos to North America costs 36 Euros; up to 5 kilos to North America costs 53 Euros; up to 10 kilos is 100 Euros, & 20 kilos is 160 Euros – plus 1 Euro per 100 Euros insurance coverage, to a maximum of 1,000 Euros. Buyers can lower costs on grouped purchases, depending on the size of the parcel, & insurance coverage - several pieces in one parcel are usually less expensive, as to per-item shipping cost – but do ask first!
From the UK - Royal Mail can only be used for international parcels under 2 kilos; measuring less than 90 centimeters total, and with a maximum insurance value of £250 (a recent, & exceedingly dumb decision): FedEx or UPS shipping is largely volumetric – the cost of sending a 5-kilo parcel is only marginally higher than 1 or 2 kilos – 5 kilos to North America can be as little as £50 - versus £28 to £32 for 1 kilo – depending on the size of the parcel, & insurance coverage. Buyers can usually lower shipping costs on grouped purchases – but again, please ask first.
Payments: PayPal, French or UK checks, or bank drafts, & all bank transfers accepted. We are obliged to accept PayPal, but prefer bank transfers, or UK or French checks - PayPal takes a 4% bite out of all transactions - including shipping costs.
Please feel free to contact us for grouped rates, and commissioned, or guided buying in France - including partial or complete containers, with related services. For period furniture (which we also collect, buy & sell) & other bulk shipping from France to Western Europe & the UK, we can arrange low-cost transport (depending on destination) via bonded & insured shippers.
