Some clean cans! VINTAGE Pioneer SE-20A headphones. Love the white shells on these. This guy kept everything with these...down to the original silica pack. Invoice states these we're purchased from Pacific Stereo in Costa Mesa, Ca in 1973 - Cost 14.95 plus tax. These are readily available on the second hand market... Many with boxes.

There's a lot of Jackson Pollock studies in the second hand market and I usually leave them be... But this one was really well done - and it had some age to it. Not sure if there's any value but I like it.

Available light photography in low light situations is an art I never been able to master. Good thing there are people out there with such an incredible gift - like @jehndouglas - who can make photos like this (on film no less). I'd also like to add that the model for this session is none other than my lovely wife @kelly_michelle_davis ... I'm a blessed man.

The most challenging part of our music room job was acquiring and placing the Baker breakfront curio cabinet. An incredibly well made piece of furniture done in the Georgian style, this piece was a beast to move - The honeycomb glass doors were fragile (had to be removed for transport), the central mirror needed remounting, base needed a veneer patch, cabinet light needed rewiring, and it was missing a key (found it while sleuthing around). All in all it was totally worth it. Although the piano is the focal point in this room, the curio cabinet is definitely second in command and our clients favorite piece. Will post completed photos soon.

Gainey Legacy pottery .. Embossed 6" wall tiles. Giraffe and Big Cat motif. Originally sold for $70 a piece. Supposedly these we're only available directly to dealers.

Whimsical earthenware pocket vases. Maker unknown. They definitely seem period. Can't fake the oxidation... At least not to the trained eye. 🕵️

Tesuque Pueblo gouache painting by Nat Coriz. Apparently Nat was known to locals in Santa Fe. He was an American Indian artist who spoke little English but who could be found wandering the streets selling these dayglo figural portraits. I really dig these. Might have to stay in the collection a while.

This little california tile table just walked into my life. Nice early example...I've seen another that's listed as Catalina but I'm not certain.

Another estate rug we couldn't pass up. This one is a traditional Tibetan style carpet. Hand made in the kingdom of Nepal. Really different from traditional designs... This is a massive rug. When you open a large rug like this for a photograph you should always make sure to measure it... too bad I forgot. I'll guess its a 12 x 16?

Another trip to our favorite rug store @woventreasuresinc. Probably going with the vintage vegetable dyed Turkish rug with the muted pallette shown in first photo. With so many rugs it's really hard to pick.
