Decorating Examples – Antique art, curiosities and other nifty stuff on display
This are some great examples of how old items can be used in a new setting as unique decorations:
This Blue Moon neon sign isn’t old, but the blue neon is very sharp. The liquor bottles are mainly 50’s and 60’s, complete with tax stamp.
This cast iron railroad bridge sign is dated April 28th, 1875. The sign itself was burned in a fire in 2009, which only added more character to it. The part about “other ponderous carriages” always makes me smile. This fish fossil was purchased from a lapidary and dinosaur museum in South Dakota. The flat screen TV to the right – Walmart 🙂
A carnival wheel made into a glasstop table. I also mix and match bases with large tractor gears as the main focus of the table.
Old bottles (30’s 40’s) and postcards (1900-1940) make a nice display on top of a bookcase. Most of these postcards are local to Greenwood Lake. Most of the bottles were found in excavations in the Greenwood Lake area. The kuchina is not old and is from Arizona.
