Vintage Smith & Co: Cool Art Gifts
We are now carrying a very cool group of vintage reproduction prints from an art company in San Francisco, Vintage Smith & Company.
They specialize in original, vintage, and reproduction vintage artwork including photographs, postcards, book plates, photogravures, maps, collage, and other works on paper evoking simpler times. These are an amazing and inexpensive art gift this holiday season, from $32. - $36. each.
My favorite pieces are the Nest with Blue Egg, Eiffel Tower, b&w vintage print of forks and spoons, and the Steinlein-inspired kittens sleeping with attentive mice & birds milling about. They also produce Signs of Wisdom, and my favorite is "Leap and the net will appear."
The cost is $32. - $36. each, and each piece is made in a black metal frame, glass, and hung with a quality cream-colored satin ribbon. Call for details or to order. Supply is limited.
