The Martin May Collection

Thrilled that Marty had invited us to see his collection, I was still floored by the shear imapct of walking into a living room that resembles a snapshot in time. No detail spared, in fact the entire house was incredibly put together, a collection decades in the making. At any moment, it seemed as though a butler might appear to attend to us.

Refreshing to see that Duffner & Kimberly lamps were so well represented, the sheer genius of their designs, clever glass selection and meticulous construction, easily puts them on par with some of the better Tiffany, at least in my opinion. It would have been so easy and predictable to collect the old 'faithfuls' of Tiffany Studios, the dragonflies, poppies, daffodils, all lovely of course, but THIS collection is much more interesting, hats off, good choices! Oh, and that Williamson chandelier over the kitchen table was extraordinary.

Thank you Marty, we had a fabulous time and a good laugh, hope we can come back next year!
