Superb John Bianchi, serial #1, double “Buscadero” holster rig complete with a pair of engraved, nickel-plated, ivory-gripped SAA Colt revolvers in cal. 38/40 Winchester. Colt #184332 was shipped to Simon’s Hardware in St Louis on 15 March 1899. Colt #184354 was shipped to Montgomery Ward in Chicago on 14 March 1899.
Legendary founder of the firm that bears his name, John Bianchi, began his business in the mid-1950’s while working as a police officer and this leather rig bearing the stamped serial number “001”, along with his personal autograph confirming the serial number, would date from that period. Both of the pistols, originally supplied by Colt with “blue finish”, would have been engraved, nickel-plated, and fitted with ivory grips about that same time.
All metal work on the rig is of the finest Sterling silver and is quite a desirable collector item in and of itself and sure to appreciate in value over the years. Click here or on photograph for price and more photos.
One of a kind Smith & Wesson .32 caliber revolver is exquisitely gold inlaid with mother of pearl engraved grips and cased in luxurious cobalt velvet by Gastinne Renette. Most likely for display at the Paris Exhibition of 1885.
This extraordinary gun would make a most memorable gift. More photographs can be veiew by clicking here.
Renaissance Revival Rococo Walnut Server with Rouge Marble Top, ca. 1860. Overall dimensions: 63”L x 37”H x 21 ½” D. Exceptional workmanship demonstrated throughout and retaining virtually all of the original finish which shows uniform delicate crazing from over a century and a half of exposure. The drawer pulls are old replacements. The beautifully figured Rouge marble top is perfect showing no cracks, gouges, chips, or repairs. The drawers and lower cabinet doors each have the original locks, and along with the shelves, are of extremely sturdy construction suitable for storage of heavy items.

Traditional Home magazine featured our Three Legged Stool and our Roorkhee Chair in Canvas in the March 2010 issue in a Marketplace article by Sabine Rothman. "We might be globe-trotting less these days, but no passport is needed to dream..." starts off the article about blending luxury travel accents with your home decor to create a nostalgic campaign setting. We are pleased two of our classic hand crafted products were recommended by such a prestigious publication.
Our signature line of safari "knock down" campaign furniture is growing rapidly and our Bareilly Chair was featured in the October 2005 issue of House Beautiful magazine in an article called, "Colonial Mood." Originally designed for British military officers in the 1800's, the unique and timeless functionality of this extraordinary style of furniture is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Our handmade rosewood collection is equally appropriate for the finest office settings, the most rugged hunting camp, an apartment in the city, your yacht, or your back porch in the mountains. Portable, durable, resilient, and elegant. Be sure to check out our newest pieces, the Dining Table with the Havana Chair, Officer's Lounge Chair and Desk.

The outside is bright gold over oxidized silver to highlight the striking detail in brilliant contrast. Leather spur strap is impeccably tooled with a rope and basket weave pattern and fits over round buttons featuring the monogram BE in raised gold block letters.

Extremely rare Mosasaur, “Lizard of the Maas”, fossilized teeth and jawbone in original matrix assigned to the Late Cretaceous Period. Also, affectionately known as the “T. Rex of the Prehistoric Sea,” these magnificent creatures reached lengths of up to 60 feet.

Overall length of this superb specimen is just over 3 feet making for an incredibly impressive display.
The perfect gift for the person who has everything, the outdoor enthusiast, fossil collector, or dinosaur aficionado. Own this rare slice of natural history to showcase in your home, feature in your office, or exhibit in your library. What an unusual anatomical accent to your game room.
