Misty’s pick this month is an enchanting needlepoint tapestry featuring the Madonna and child. “This tapestry is remarkably intricate,” Misty says. “There is so much love in her eyes. This would be a feat in a painting, but to accomplish it in a tapestry is awe-inspiring.” This grand French tapestry dates back to 1870.

This month, Michael’s choice is a Royal Crown Derby dessert set in the Imari #1128 pattern. “If you’re going to have a social gathering, you might as well make an impression with this colorful & classic style of dessert ware,” Michael says of this set. “Your monochromatic pound cake & espresso will taste so much better when served on this beautiful china.”

Judith’s choice for November is Victor Fisher’s sculpture Stephanie. “I would like to recognize the outstanding sculpture executed by Victor Fisher in his work named Stephanie. Victor works to show the beauty of the human form as it is perfectly toned in the height of performance,” Judith says. “Stephanie is a lovely ballerina, who appears to be taking a break from her workout. She is presented on a creative pedestal base that is part of the overall beauty of the sculpture.”

There are 18.75 carats of high quality diamonds in this piece and you could not choose a more beautiful necklace to slip under the tree.”
