A Swedish bronze by Sune Bäckström, c. 1930s 
Anyone who has been in the shop can attest that we are stocked floor to ceiling with goods, but it was the genius minimalism of design that somehow allowed this bronze to escape my attention for months. Now I can say without reservation that this one is among my favorite forms of decorative art I have ever seen. It captures that stripped down simplicity that defined the deco era, making it vintage and futuristic all at once.
