The Squid & The Whale


Expanding on my nautical theme from the last post, I thought I would share some of my favorite images of sea creatures below and around the sea.

First, the squid and other cephalopods….




1930s Denoyer-Geppert Classroom Chart
Currently for Sale, $85




1956 Dr. Auzoux Chart "la seiche" which translates as cuttlefish or bobtail squid
Currently for Sale, $525



Then, the whale and fellow sea mammals…



1880s Chromolithographic Plate, Johnson's Household Animals, Currently for Sale, $25




1843 Hand-Colored Copper Plate Engraving (SOLD, but we have similar plates in stock for $10 each)


And let's not forget our feathered friends of the sea….




We have many very reasonably-priced early 20th century prints of Audubon's amazingly beautiful water colors. They are not always out on display in the shop, due to space constraints. Please inquire if interested.

One final note: Windsor Place Antiques received a very nice write-up in a Best of The Brooklyn Flea article in dna info.

You can check it out here

Hope to see you in the shop this weekend or at the Brooklyn Flea in Williamsburg this Sunday
