In 1985, a New York movie executive began buying antique English and French furniture, art, crystal and porcelain. Moving to Los Angeles, she added California pottery and Asian porcelain. The Emporium Ltd. was born out of that first collection. She still buys only what she would want in her own home. Her philosophy is simple: "Always buy a piece you love. You'll find a place for it. But if you didn't love it at full price, don't buy it on sale. It won't withstand the test of time."
Why we love this
Crca 1850 Canton watercolor of butterflies with new custom reverse-painted glass frame. Grosgrain ribbon inner mat. Fully backed in marbleized Florentine paper. The artistry of the watercolor is matched by the brilliant craftsmanship of the frame, which is decorated with silver gilded wood bead work and borders.
