Antiques >Land Of Was
Two tiny houses offer the height of opulence in Alamo Heights..
High-end, estate-quality furnishings abound in this small, converted two-story house. Although the ambience is casual, the pieces and prices are anything but. Leaded crystal chandeliers, 18th-century paintings and a baby grand piano make it seem like you're at William Randolph Hearst's garage sale. An English wooden dresser made in 1740 selling for $16,000 makes a 19th-century silk, French hooded-chair look like a bargain at $3,500.
Rare furniture and furnishings constitute the bulk of what the store offers; however, an underlying theme seems to be religious paintings and sculpture. The carved statues of Catholic saints are breathtakingly beautiful and in excellent condition. These pieces and others can be found in yet a second two-story house behind the main building. A restoration workshop is also on the premises.
