SIGNS AND SALVAGE

The Season For Architectural Finds, Rusty Signs and Vintage Fashion
By Marsha Canright

Interior designers recommend blending modern with vintage to create an interesting and layered look in the home. Select antique, repurposed or salvaged objects to create a design that’s unique and eclectic. Yes, it’s time for Antique Weeks in the country, when mainstay brick-and-mortar (or shiplap and tin roof) dealers are joined by pop-up tents and seasonal merchants; check the websites in this story for exact show dates. But don’t overlook the vendors in the Houston and Galveston metropolitan areas. With curated collections of everything from estate jewelry to upcycled clothing, this is a great time to fine tune your signature style.

NAUTICAL ARTIFACTS
Nautical artifacts are made to last a lifetime – and they do. Antique lights, in particular, are popular items for seaside homes as well as city houses with pools and outdoor spaces. Mike and Adrienne Culpepper, owners of Nautical Antiques & Tropical Decor in Galveston, say they scour the world annually — breaking yards in India, Turkey and Bangladesh — to salvage parts of ships and boats for their shop. The lights people buy are probably 30 to 40 years old, made of solid brass already sporting a rich patina, and can be retrofitted for their home or yard to last forever. Antique ship flags — numbers and letters — are also popular nautical finds as well as the heavy floor grates made of teak, mahogany or oak and sold by the pound. The Culpeppers mark each item as either salvaged or new made from reclaimed materials. Antique nautical maps and charts are also popular as framed artwork in homes.

JEWELRY
Art Deco, Victorian or Georgian style jewelry is highly sought after because of the quality of workmanship, the comfort of the fit and the magical romantic sensation that each piece possesses, says Cristina Mattern, a gemologist who works with estate and antique jewelry at Tenenbaum Jewelers. Mattern says old jewelry is usually more elaborate than pieces made today because gold was not expensive a hundred years ago. Antique diamond engagement rings are popular, as are “right hand” pieces from the post-war 1940s, when people dressed up and went out frequently. Jewelry made of bone, ivory and tortoise shell are also popular vintage choices. Recent trends for antique jewelry do not include pearls (the market is flooded with fresh water pearls) or brooches (pins that tend to be too heavy for the lighter weight clothing women wear today). 

VINTAGE CLOTHING
There is a limited market for antique clothing, but vintage garments are a busy business — and lots of fun, too. Sam VanBibber, who has been recycling clothes for decades, says items from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s are popular for parties or events, but clothing saved from the previous century up through the 1940s is hard to come by. VanBibber, who works at Retropolis in the Heights, and co-worker Steve Candelari (the Retro-man), say they shop at estate sales, garage sales and gather old stock from businesses that are closing.

 “Sometimes it is just being at the right place at the right time,” says VanBibber. She says families sometimes contact her when an elderly relative dies and she picks out interesting clothing from the deceased person’s closet. Popular items are dresses, skirts, sweaters and jackets. Boots and jewelry never lose their appeal. But, she notes, clothing from before the 1930s runs small and is extremely fragile.

Inside the loop, Tina Davis of Cheeky Vintage recently launched Cheeky Vintage Upcycled, an initiative that transforms vintage silks. “We embrace going green and sustainable fashion at Cheeky and feel this is the way of the future,” says Davis.

ANTIQUE SIGNS

They are a sign of the times and they are valuable. Vintage soda signs — Coca-Cola and Dr Pepper in particular — are popular, as well as antique advertising panels for beer or other consumables, says Bill Saville, a longtime dealer at Thompson’s Antique Center of Texas on Hempstead. Saville says oil and gas memorabilia — Mobil Pegasus, Exxon, Chevron and Texaco — are highly sought out by individuals as well as businesses and prices vary from inexpensive to more than $5,000. Early signs made of porcelain last longer than more recent metal signs. But, if buyers can’t find the vintage signs they are looking for, Sloane Gallery has thousands of photographs of early Houston and can reproduce digital copies of buildings, signs and companies that are no longer standing. Proprietor Story Sloane makes black and white copies, as well as sepiatone prints, and is currently selling framed vintage photographs that were recently on view at George R. Brown Convention Center.
