Below is Kathy’s September staff pick. This stunning military desk, from the estate of Revolutionary War commander W.M. Howe, is an incredible piece of history. Kathy says:¬†“The history connected to this desk is amazing. And every time I touch it, it takes me back in time to the birth of our nation.”

The next Staff Pick, from staff member Michael, is a beautiful tiger eye quartz ring.¬†“I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. But every once in a while, we get in a piece that I really like & wouldn’t mind having,”¬†he says.“This tiger eye quartz ring is both stylish & masculine. The detail work on the ring’s shoulders sets it apart from plain gold settings, and¬† the stone itself is beautifully polished. It’s a real “tiger” eye catcher.”¬†

This month, Misty has chosen a breathtaking figural sculpture. “This piece is so impressive in person! The detail of this sculpture is overwhelming,”¬†she says.“The Warrior’s every muscle is defined. His face is intent. It has an imposing size, yet uses little depth, so will fit in shallow spaces.”

Judy has also chosen a bronze sculpture for her September pick.¬†“After these long Dog Days of Summer, I will select¬†Rathbone.¬† This sculpture just makes me laugh! It is one of my favorites created by Marty Goldstein.¬†Rathbone¬†is posed to greet you, beg you to throw his ball, or just wag his tail in joyful play.”
