I have been in contact with Harold Tichenor and he was able to tell me this jacket is from the 20's. HBC also told me the blanket colors are the earliest used.
I would love to find out if there…Continue

Necessity is the mother of invention.

The result was the creation of undoubtedly some of the finest pieces of Rattan ever made. We have a wonderful living room suite that is the example of the best of Heywood-Wakefield.…Continue

I've been selling antiques / vintage for years...I hate to think how long! LOL The most satisfaction I have, is finding the 'perfect fit'...matching the 'perfect' item to the 'perfect' person! Definitely, very few antique or vintage pieces are 'perfect', but it seems that way when an item is 'matched to a person in the most 'uncanny' way!
