Provenance: From a prominent antique collector, in little country home near Cummings, Georgia we found items collected over years and passed down from one generation to the next that we found to be genuinely amazing. While they appeared to live a very modest life their collections told a completely different narrative. We were able to acquire items from this collection in 2015. .
