Here are this week's Items of the Week from the A.T. Stewart Exchange: A handsome
furniture grouping with attractive accessories. We begin with a solid,
walnut chair at a low $45. The style of the chair is Victorian,
and it has a sturdy cane seat. It is a handsome piece for the money!
On the chair, there's a lovely, needlepoint pillow with velvet backing
and fringe tassels for $15. The hardwood server is a
perfect piece for any room. It measures 29 1/2"H x 30"W x 14 1/2"D,
offers storage space and is $95. Again, a great find for the price!
On the server, we show an old Victorian, brass letter holder, priced at
$55, and a beautiful green urn--with dragonfly
motif--priced at $28. The table runner, for $28, is dark red with
muted shades of gold and brown woven into the fabric. The accessories
are simple, smart
and pull the look together! All items are available at the time of
