Other than a few cousins, I am the last person in my family left alive, so I have effectively 3 sets of fancy arsed porcelain 1 from the 1830s, 2 from the 1910s, complete in the case of the 1830 one with uber fancy heavy sterling silver table service, a coffee/tea/chocolate service and baccerat crystal drinkwarez of varying types [red wine, white wine, champagne, cordial/sherry/port and short tumblers for maybe whiskey<?>] and 2 other newer edwardian silverware also in sterling, a complete set of Rose Medallion tea service and the forgery Rose Canton ditto. [Mom was an antique pusher, her actual specialty was art glass]
Why yes, before we haul up stakes in 5 years we are having an actual art house sell the antique crap burdening us. I plan on keeping one roll top desk and matching chair that belonged to my great grandfather, a morris chair that belonged to my grandfather with an admittedly ugly footstool that doesn’t match anything, and a black marble topped telephone stand [one drawer, one cupboard, it is about 14 inches by 14 inches by 30ish inches tall] and a real Tiffany lamp for on the telephone stand, an antique bankers lamp that was o the desk starting with my grandfather in the 1920s when the mill got electrified. I am also probably keeping a Galle nightlight [small lamp looking electric light, designed to sit on a table in a hallway to light the way during the night]
All the furniture and stuff are actual antiques except for the footstool - Stickley and Tiffany. I also have a 1900ish 12x18 Aubusson carpet, which I detest, some real art [especially one Monet, Girl in hat, I have hated it since I was young and noticed the eyes followed me around the room. Blech.] and a passel of art and art glass that will get sold off. Keep only what you personally like and actively want is my best advice.
