My good friend, philanthropist, collector and interior designer Glenn Gissler was chosen to select his favorite objects from InCollect! He said, “I look for object of any era that have distinctive silhouettes and are ‘bi-lingual’ – that is the objects speak to the time they were made, while speaking to today – a sign for me that the object or work of art has, and will endure over time. For me fine Art (with a capital ‘A’) is one of the greatest luxuries one can give themselves – offering another view on life.”

This is a fabulous pair of mirrors that were originally purchased in the 1940’s from Marshall Fields & Co’s antique department. Faceted Black and Cream glass tiles with gold accents make up the border. These mirrors would look great in a modern or formal environment.
A handsome pair of French Napoleon III carved walnut curule-form stools with leather seats; the framed padded seat raised on a curule-form base joined by turned cross stretchers.
A Tiffany Studios bronze and favrile glass balance weight floor lamp comprising a five-footed gilded bronze base with an amber damascene cased blown glass shade decorated with silvery-blue iridescent feather design.
