cartier bracelet, lead arm among top sellers

As we continue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moonwalk in 1969, we share Andy Warhol’s vision of that watershed event of one of the defining moments of the modern era, a symbol of progress, ingenuity and human endeavor. Executed in 1987, Warhol’s Moonwalk screenprints were among his last works before his untimely death. The result is an iconic element of Warhol’s printmaking that illustrates not only the lasting impact of the moon landing but also the artist’s own profound effect on American visual culture.…

diving into the great unknown helmets offer new meaning

PERSPECTIVE MATTERS. Don Creekmore knows this better than most. Don and his wife, Jenny, run Nation’s Attic, a family-owned business specializing in the buying and selling of authentic diving helmets, the focus of our cover story starting on page 50. There’s nothing funny about what they do. As a matter of fact, vintage diving helmets are fascinating and in high demand. Nation’s Attic sells helmets worldwide. It’s not what they do, exactly, but where they do it that brings a curious smile. The Creekmores run Nation’s Attic out of Wichita, Kan., or as they proudly state on their website (, “Nowhere near the water.” Kansas may have a lot to offer, but an ocean view isn’t on the list. And in a business that captures the romance of the sea like few others,…

from our readers

Hey World’s Fair collectors, a reader needs your help! Hello Antique Trader: I enjoy reading the Antique Trader every two weeks, just re-subscribed for another 3 years. I especially enjoyed the recent issue on Halloween Collectibles – All Hallows is one of my favorite holidays. I didn’t know the reference book [Halloween Collectibles by Mark Ledenbach] existed – will have to get a copy. I was wondering if you know of any groups or gatherings for collectors of 1939 World’s Fair items, or World’s Fair items in general – there seems to be a group/club for just about everything else. I have a number of “Hi Neighbor I’m From …” pins from the 1939 New York World’s Fair and would like to complete the set of 48 pins. Any ideas where I might look to…

treasure hunting ends with a nice find

QI picked this up today, but I have no idea what it is. I attached a picture. Any help would be great. Keith Rovere A A nice find for the day. I believe your treasure, along with the vintage oil can in the foreground, is a fireplace trivet from the early 20th century. A trivet, defined as a decorative period metal or wire stand, was used as a base for hot kettles, skillets and pots. Before electricity, hand wrought-metal trivets were essential household tools for cooking by the fire. Most were made of cast iron, such as yours, and raised with three legs in slow cooking or for maintaining heat. From the photo, your trivet incorporates a longer handle to facilitate handling and moving while hot. Early trivets were decorated with scrolls, hearts, stars,…

female artists grace the spotlight

DALLAS – Continuing a recent noteworthy trend, outstanding artworks by women are the featured lots of Heritage Auctions’ Fine European Art Auction on Dec. 6. Leading the group is Anne Red-path’s highly expressive Still life with daffodils and tulips (estimate: $30,000-$40,000). Redpath was a major figure of the Edinburgh School, who forged a successful career painting intimate interior spaces, depictions of rural life that have a primitive quality and floral arrangements. Following study at the Edinburgh College of Art in 1913, Redpath exhibited her work regionally, eventually gaining an associate professorship at the Royal Scottish Academy in 1947, becoming the first female academician there in 1952. “Her paintings frequently teeter on the brink of abstraction,” said Heritage Auctions Senior Fine Art Expert Marianne Berardi, “with their lively marks and animated surfaces such…
