This one is not an antique, but my mom made it as a copy of one she had and gave it to me. She had a lathe and did all the turnings and everything. It is one of my most prized possessions.
See the brass plaques inside. Made especially for you - Marion & Erwin Longino and the bottom one says Love Mother & Daddy 1977. (As a kid I always had to explain that my father's name was Marion and my mother's name was Erwin. Gosh, I sure miss them and wish I could explain their names to someone as I introduce them.)
When I created the gallery wall, I thought this pretty little girl painting was the perfect addition. I just added the drop leaf gate leg table. It was one I purged out of the family room when I did a makeover in there. I think it is a great addition to the hall, and you know me, another place to create a vignette.
Next to the door at the end of the hall is an antique school clock that came out of a school in LA that was being torn down. The buttons on the bottom were used to ring the different bells for school to start, recess and end of day. This was painted that awful drab green they used in schools years ago. My Mother's brother (Uncle Tom) rescued it and stripped it down. When he passed away my mom got it, then me. Another special treasure.
You've seen it before when I show a view across the kitchen looking into the hall. The guest bath is on the left and my hubby's office is on the right.
I love all my clocks and I like the addition of the table. The halls are nice and wide so this kind of anchors all the clocks.
