Apple Powerbook 2400C

When I think of the word vintage, I think wine, audio equipment, cars, clothing, films. Vintage to some antiquarians also conjures negative connotations – obsolete, or outdated. But, vintage as an adjective has recently seen a resurgence in popularity and use particularly in communities such as Etsy and Tumbler. Vintage has adapted to its new cachet, its time, again, is now.

VIntage Apple 2400

Now that I have your attention, 2400’s are r-a-r-e. Only the PowerBook 550 seems to appear less frequently than the 2400 and, naturally, when they do surface, they tend to demand premium prices. It’s understandable that it is rarely found, let alone, available to collectors, given the nature of this diminutive machine. The 2400 was the precursor to the MacBook Air with its external floppy drive. The PowerBook 2400c was introduced in May 1997.  Production was terminated abruptly in May 1998 to be followed by the PowerBook G3.

This Powerbook 2400c is up for auction on ebay.

Vintage Cannondale SR800, a classic!

If you haven’t ridden a Cannondale, they are a paradox characteristic of few bikes, sturdy yet nimble. This is a classic 1988 SR800. It has a hand built 53 cm Criterium racing frame with respected original Shimano components. A used car dealer sweeten the pitch, “it has low miles, is all original, and had one owner.”

Vintage Carved Wood Mexican Religious Folk Art Cross Crucifix

Mexican Religious Folk Art Cross Crucifix

Mexican Religious Folk Art Cross Crucifix

Our collection contains dozens of old vintage Mexican masks and other ethnographic art mostly from Guerrero, Mexico. Many of the masks and other ethnographic artifacts were purchased at the Ohio Ethnographic gallery in Columbus, Ohio, in the 1988, curiously; known for the selectivity of the work they showed and offered. This vintage wood crucifix has the original lime based paint and nails, some paint has worn away with age. It has a hairline crack in the green decorative piece, as depicted. Otherwise, it is a beautiful old example of the carving style of this geographical area of Mexico. Cheaper, more recent work from Guerrero, and Oaxaca, and Michoaca may be available elsewhere however, the tourist industry is resulting in production methods and stylization diminishing both the overall quality including character and value.

Measurements: 24″ x 15″ x 8″

Vintage Carved and Painted Figures of a Man and Woman

Carved Couple

carved women

carved man

We discovered this wonderful pair of figures at the Heartland Antique Show in Richmond, Indiana in the middle 1990s. They had been brought to this nationally recognized show by a antique dealer from Iowa. She did not know the figures provenance but said she believed them to be from the late 30s to early 40s. They are delicate and beautifully carved with great skill exhibited in technique. The attire is well articulated, the man holds a hat behind his back. The hat must have been broken at some stage as it had been carefully glued together at the time of our purchase. The woman’s shoes have some loss of the black paint. She is also missing what we believe must have been a basket which rested upon her left hip. There is a small peg which juts from her hip, some absence of paint makes it apparent something had been applied and then painted. Her flaxen hair and some of her facial features have been sculpted from a composite material. Perhaps glue and sawdust? Both the male and female figure stand on their original stained bases, each approximately 4″ x 4.5″ x .5″ tall. The figures each stand approximately 10″ tall on their bases. Scribed in pencil on the bottom of the male figure’s base is “Seale,” nothing further was discovered about their origin.
