French Art Deco juicer.Specializing in modernist/Machine Age pieces, Munich-based hoody7 is on my shortlist of top eBay sellers. He could easily have donated pieces to the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Modernism exhibit, which I recently saw. I love the Jadeite and brick-red color scheme here, as well as the sprocket-y crank.
Reproduction RCA sign. This could have been a prop from the film “Good Night, and Good Luck.” Placed above the door to your apartment, it would add drama – a
frisson of that jittery, five-seconds-to-air newsroom energy.
German nutcracker. I love the sculptural quality and the sheer heft of this piece. This would make a killer paperweight or serve as the founding piece for a collection of modernist nutcrackers.
Greek-key coffee table. Seller HighPointFurnitureCollection has some top-quality pieces from Bill Sofield and Barbara Barry’s collections for Baker Furniture at outlet-store prices. These are classic pieces that you’ll never tire of.
