Here are this week's Items of the Week from the A.T. Stewart Exchange
: A lovely woman's vanity priced at
$80. This piece was made around 1900 in Vermont. It was brought into
the shop by the original owner's son, who told us that his mother was a
rugged New Englander who believed in re-purposing
everything. The word "recycling" hadn't become part of the vernacular in
her day! The vanity is made of hardwood, with small flourishes on the
legs and the center mirror. It measure 36"L x 19 3/4"D x 31 1/2"H.
It has two drawers for cosmetics. It's a great piece at a great price!
On the vanity, we show a small gold frame for $5, a four-piece
Bakelite vanity brush set for $24 and a seven-piece Nippon china
vanity tray set for $150. All items are available at the time of
