That visual, refined since then in countless Coca-Cola ads and Ideals magazine covers, is essentially “Santa” as we recognize him today. As early as the 1820s, shops began to gear their toy advertising specifically toward Santa and the Christmas season. In 1841, a life-size Santa figure in a Philadelphia store window attracted hordes of eager youngsters, who dragged along their toy-buying parents, much to the store owner’s delight.

SHOPS & CENTERS COLLECTOR CHATS WITH PETER S. SEIBERT This Week: Thinking Of Gifts...Antiques Style Tureens and vegetable dishes without lids can easily be turned into wonderful vases for dried or natural arrangements (or even a bulb garden). I am not advocating rare 19th-century Staffordshire here but rather the later production items from the 20th century that often have lost their lids, and their value, and can be reused as wonderful holiday planters. Murano glass is horribly undervalued and makes a great gift for anyone. A vase, table bowl, or other items are just wonderful, colorful gifts especially for young folks who like mid-century moderne. Cookie cutters and

the dough! Again, I am not talking about the super early cutters that cost hundreds of dollars but ones that are $2 to $4 and can be used today. Not plastic either, as there are wonderful tin cutters out there that are truly bargains. Make sure not to get rusty examples, but go for it in terms of finding ones that can be used and enjoyed for holidays to come. Massing of the color. Buy a load of vintage Christmas tree balls and put them in a nice basket as a gift. How about some of those great vintage elves in green felt? Put some of them in a holiday arrangement. For the kids who are hard to shop for…buy something really old!!! Eighteenth-centu-

ry books and coins are not that hard to find or that pricey. Purchase a book from 1750 and I promise you that any boy or girl will be impressed, show their friends, and treat it as a real treasure. Finally, for a very special gift, why not offer to take a friend (or friends) antiquing! I know…antiquing is not a team sport. But grab some friends and set a challenge to find the coolest holiday ornament or treasure for the least amount of money. The winner has lunch bought by the losers. It’s fun and frankly a great learning experience. And there are vintage linens, hats to be decorated, tin toys to be put on wreaths….. and on and on.

Peter Swift Seibert

I love giving antiques as holiday gifts. They are fun, very distinctive, and not a budget buster for sure. In fact, I think antiques are one of the best ways to stretch your pocketbook this holiday season. All of us who love antiques know how much fun it is to beat the woodwork looking for bargains. Take those skills and apply them to holiday gifts. At the same time as you are looking to save a few dollars, also recognize that a gift of an antique could inspire a

whole new collection/collector! And…being thoroughly mercenary here…if you inspire a new collection then that will give you lots more giving opportunities. So here is my short list of really neat ideas for holiday giving that involve antiques: For the newlyweds out there, I like to give as gifts a pair of Victorian pattern glass goblets and a bottle of wine. They can start a tradition of toasting the holidays with the glasses and it can also inspire a new collection. By the way, I think mixing and matching pattern glass goblets is absolutely a wonderful holiday table decoration.

The rule here is that objects found in an antiques shop are not always antique. Sometimes they are just antique looking and this seems to be the case with R.T.’s interesting looking mirror.

the form of monkeys. These were first modeled by J. J. Kaendler in 1753 and have been produced right up to the present day. They were reportedly based on the work of Christophe Huet (1700-1759) who decorated the Chateau de Chantilly in France with murals of monkeys elegantly dressed in human clothes - not unlike the monkeys on this mirror back.

When this happens, the glaze and the body are said “not to fit.” When this happens accidentally, collectors consider it to be a defect, but on many occasion this fine network of cracks was created on purpose for decorative effect. Asian ceramics in particular often have this purposefully induced crazing and Chinese potters even developed names for some of these effects. In

by Tricia Campbell The holiday season is a time of joy. A time when fond memories from the past dance around in our heads as we remember carefree days, playing with beloved toys, feasting on delectable goodies at Grandma’s, snowball fights with the neighborhood kids, and sleepless nights straining to hear the faintest jingle of bells and reindeer hooves on the roof. This month at the Grist Mill Antiques Center (127 Hanover Street, Pemberton, New Jersey) all those wonderful memories of Christmas past come alive with our “Vintage Christmas� special display. Whether it’s that special Barbie doll you had as a young girl, Grandma’s china that was only brought out once or twice a year, the tools you used to help your uncle build a dog house, or even the Bakelite radio you pressed your ear against to listen to the report of Santa sightings, we have it all! Why not share some of that joy with your loved ones this

not, and the screw threads on the handle are very modern as are the metal castings. My feeling is that this mirror is circa 1970, and once had a round metal base that supported it when it rested on milady’s dressing table. Sadly, it is now just a fragment of its former self, and it is very unlikely that a proper base can be found. I suppose a white marble

base could be cut and a compatible screw found to mate the mirror to the base, but that would not restore its originality or raise its value very much. It might be very attractive framed, but even so in this fragmentary condition, this mirror has a value of less than $35. Have an antique or collectible you would like to know more about?

Under New Ownership

The Morgan Library & Museum and The New York Public Library hold two of the world’s great collections of manuscripts, rare books, letters, and other items related to the life of Mark Twain (18351910). Now the two institutions are presenting a major exhibition at the Morgan, exploring a central, recurring theme throughout the iconic author’s body of work: his uneasy, often critical, attitude towards a rapidly modernizing America. “Mark Twain: A Skeptic’s Progress” opened on September 17, to coincide with the 175th anniversary of Twain’s birth in 1835. Included in the exhibit are

Otto J. Schneider, Mark Twain. New York: Charles Barmore, 1906. Purchased for the Dannie and Hettie Heineman Collection as the gift of the Heineman Foundation, 2010; MA 7632. Photography by Graham Haber, 2010.

more than 120 rare books, letters, notebooks, diaries, photographs, and drawings associated with the author’s life and work. The exhibit is on view through January 2, 2011. Mark Twain’s life spanned an era that saw much of the world - America in particular embrace the Industrial Revolution. With the expan-

cism about the possibility of changing human nature, made him doubtful about the effectiveness of these means or even the possibility of human progress. Throughout his life’s journey, only his faith in the clarity and cleansing possibilities of the written word remained constant. Mark Twain: A Skeptic’s Progress captures the essence of the author’s wit, humor, and philosophy towards his era’s great changes in all their guises with examples of his work Number 4 in a series of seven photographic portraits of Mark Twain, each inscribed by Twain, 1906, gelatin silver prints on card. Purchased on the John F. Fleming Fund, 2007; MA 7253. Photography by Graham Haber, 2010.

sion of transportation and communications technology, there was a cultural shift from small-town rural concerns to a large-scale national agenda centered around great cities. As a young man, Twain had traveled by foot, horse, and riverboat. As a mature man, and one of the most widely traveled Americans, he journeyed by international steamship and railroad, and even saw the advent of the automobile. For Twain, such technological, industrial, and urban developments were the means by which America might become a more prosperous and just society and also realize the nineteenth-century dream of universal progress. While he saw this achievement embodied by the concentration of educational and cultural institutions in Northern cities and towns, his conflicted love affair with his native South and its traditions, his close observation of the natural world, and his skepti-

Fooled By Fakes – Buyer Beware! By Anita Stratos Recognizing Reproduction Shiny Brite Christmas Ornaments

with colorful Shiny Brite ornaments from the 1940’s and 1950’s, and, not to date myself, so did our tree when I was a young child (though they were already considered “yesterday’s” ornaments). I inherited a couple dozen of these delicate glass ornaments that managed to survive the decades, and every year they appear on our tree too, along with stories told to my now-grown daughter about my childhood Christmases. Believe it or not, she still loves that tradition. Shiny Brites are more than just a holiday tradition, though.

In the spirit of the season, we offer you our sincere best wishes and gratitude. It’s been a real joy getting to know you and we hope to see you again, soon. 1667 Cider Press Road, Manheim, PA 17545

They’re an all-American tradition, made in America from 1939 through the early 1960s. Prior to that time, most glass ornaments were made in Germany, but when Max Echardt immigrated to America from Germany, he recognized the open niche for Americanmade glass ornaments and started the Shiny Brite company, whose decorations were actually at Corning Glass. A large order from Woolworth’s got him off to a good start, and the rest, as they say, is history. Fast-forward to the present: I’ve noticed a lot of vintage Shiny Brite ornaments making their way to auctions, especially over the past year. Some of them are actually in their original boxes, but most are just piled up in large cardboard boxes or plastic tubs. I’ve also noticed that they’re getting pretty good prices too; I’ve never seen a vintage Shiny Brite lot passed over yet. But I noticed another thing as well - mixed in with all those vintage ornaments are some alltoo-shiny, far-too-perfect ornaments that look an awful lot like Shiny Brites, but without any of their age showing. You’d think someone invented Botox for Christmas ornaments, but they just did the next best thing - they made modern reproductions of them. Christopher Radko has a wide line of contemporary Shiny Brite ornaments that look so much like the originals, it’s scary. Of course, Radko’s intent

in creating these reproductions is not to deceive buyers, but rather to give Baby Boomers the opportunity to recapture the look of their childhood Christmases. The Shiny Brites being reproduced today aren’t generally the plain, solid colored ones; they’re the flocked, striped, shaped, indented, and otherwise decorated ornaments. There are Christmas balls, drops, garland, and tree toppers of all shapes and sizes, along with Shiny Brite hangers, all packaged in reproduction boxes. The boxes are marked “Christopher Radko Presents,” which can’t be removed without leaving a long damaged strip on the box, so you’re not likely to be fooled if all the ornaments are in their Radko boxes. However, sometimes you’ll find modern Shiny Brites mixed in with vintage ornaments at auctions. One quick and easy way to tell the difference is that the reproductions live up to their name - they’re too shiny and too brightly colored for an ornament that’s over 50 years old. Vintage

Dickens’s Original A Christmas Carol On View At The Morgan

From

MARK J. JONES, Auctioneer

American factory owner gave his workers an extra day’s holiday when he had finished reading it. When the manuscript was returned after printing, Dickens arranged for it to be finely bound in red morocco leather and presented it as a gift to his solicitor. It was purchased by Pierpont Morgan in the 1890’s. Visitors to The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City through January 9, 2011, can view the original manuscript by Dickens in a special presentation in the museum’s newly restored McKim Building. The manuscript reveals the author’s method of composition: the pace of writing and revision, appar-

Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Mr. Fezziwig, Bob Cratchit, the Ghost of Christmas Past - in the age of film and television these characters from Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol are universally familiar. The story has been told as a stage musical, a serious dramatic film, and a modern comedy. But, in the end, it all comes back to a magical book written by Dickens in a six-week flurry of activity in late 1843. Greeted with universal acclaim at the time of publication, A Christmas Carol might rightfully be called an “instant masterpiece.” William Makepeace Thackeray called it a “national benefit” and an

HOLIDAY ANTIQUE AUCTION

by Roy Nuhn

Old Santa Claus dolls from the 19th, and early 20th centuries are among today’s classic Christmas collectibles. The tremendous demand for them is reflected in the very large prices - often in the thousands of dollars - they bring at auction. Lately, though, collector interest has begun focusing on the huge numbers of Santa Claus dolls made from the 1930’s to the 1990’s. These are increasingly being viewed as not only lovely and intriguing, but highly Dollmaker Lewis Sorensen at work. attractive due to their reasonable price tags.

Lewis Sorensen was one Sorensen. For over a half-century, of the last of a dying breed of Sorensen created beautiful (Continued on page 17) wax dolls of all types for collectors and children to cherish and to love. While justly famous for his American presidents and Wives series, the Gibson Girls, and Ramona Indian dolls, it was the unique, heart warming, nostalgic Santa Clauses he crafted that have earned him everlasting fame. Not only Santa Claus and Saint Nicholas dolls from various eras and countries, but other spiritual and cultural symbols of Christmas from around the world go to make up the dollmaker’s special universe. Among his creations were dolls representing such Yuletide personages as Balthazar, the Christmas spirit of Spain; Saint Lucia, who delivers sweet cakes and cofNast’s Santa Claus.

designer and a dollmaker. By the early part of the next decade, his doll line included a vase array of subjects including royalty and Hollywood stars. At this time he introduced the famous Ramona Indian doll, which one major California retailer, The May Company, carried for over a year. A permanent display at a Los Angeles gift shop proved successful and brought in even more business. By 1946, dollmaking had become his major occupation, though designing clothes - mostly menswear - remained a lucrative sideline. It was in the late 1930’s that Sorensen inaugurated a 40-year campaign to promote and sell his dolls. His advertisements appeared in the many doll and hobby publications of the era. Most of his dolls - such as a Sherlock Holmes in robe, pajamas and slippers were ten to twelve inches high and priced at $4.50; a few, like Ramona sold for $6.00. The 25-inch size, including Santa Claus and Saint Nicholas of later years, carried a price tag of about $10. As the 1950s began, Sorensen

A few topnotch artisans like him remain, mostly in Europe, but even they rely on a limited form of mass production. Occasionally, craftspeople will be found in this country who still make dolls the old-fashioned way, but usually only as a hobby or sideline. Sorensen was born August 13, 1910, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to a poor Mormon family. Infatuated with fashion designing at an early age, he began making dolls and doll clothing. When he was 17, he began working as a helper and cutter trainee for a dress design and manufacturing chain store, “Mode O’Day,” in his hometown.

In his spare time, he continued making dolls and doll clothing, using scraps salvaged from the store. Sorensen sold these dolls to coworkers for $1.00 each.
