Every Occasion is a Special Occasion

MATCH Pewter Round Tureen
 9.8D x 9.3H

I love this company!  Match continues ancient tradition using methods that have been passed down through generations of Italian artisans.  The hallmarks on each piece are the signatures of their skilled hands.  A 95 is stamped on each piece to represent the 95% highest quality tin used in each piece.  Each piece of match pewter is a testament to the timeless values of craft and authorship often overlooked in this age of speed and convenience.  The classic forms harmonize with both traditional and modern settings.  AERO has several pieces in the gallery from the line, please let me know if there is anything you are looking for and I will see what I can do to get your collection started!

Happy Thanksgiving All!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.  ~Melody Beattie

Please have a safe and happy holiday!

An Eye For Entertaining

Pewter Owl Pitcher
9.25" x 6"

Your guests will hoot with delight when you serve with this charming Harvest Owl Pitcher.  Big, bright copper eyes are the defining feature of this curious creature cast in whimsically detailed pewter.  The sturdy, graceful handle has a feathered finish; the gracefully curved pitcher body is finished with a combination of high polish and subtle brushing.

This pitcher was inspired by the beauty of copper eyed, North American Barred Owls, known to most as hoot owls.  Owls are a symbol of wisdom around the world; I believe it is a wise host indeed who chooses to serve with the Harvest Owl Pitcher.

Buying Mid-Century? Buy American!

Harvey Probber Side Table
circa 1950

22.5" x 19.75" x 20.75"

Designed by world renowned American furniture designer Harvey Probber this side table is a great example of his elegant and innovative style.  The clean lines of the piece and the two tone outlining detail on the single drawer help to enforce the strong mid century design.  Finished in a greywash the piece also features a cane shelf for extra storage.  This piece has a very modular quality that I feel can work well in most any situation.

Beautifully Appointed Barware

Darby Collection, DOF
designed by Thomas O'Brien for Reed & Barton
set of 4
Darby Collection, Highball
designed by Thomas O'Brien for Reed & Barton
Set of 4

Darby barware is an extensive family on a chord of retro, clubby luxury. This crystal is distinguished by its incredible weight and soul, with tailored horizontal cross-cutting over deep paneled and scalloped vertical cuts, evoking something of a plaid design. A classic star-cut pattern on the bottom of each glass adds perfect refraction and tradition. Set of 4.

Vintage Luxury In A Modern World

Contoured Barrel Back Settee

50" x 33" x 22.5"
Seat height: 18"
shown in wine velvet, circa 1940 in the manner of Edward Wormley


This vintage settee is a perfect example of the transition of the center of the art world from Paris to New York that occurred in the 40's.  Like so many pieces of the time, the slightly curved shape and plush velvet offer a romantic escape from the pulls of urban living.  The smaller footprint of the piece makes it easily able to be called home in a variety of spaces.
