Jason Jones, The Jones Collection, Midland

“I have been an avid collector and researcher of antiques of all genres for over 30 years. What started with depression glass and costume jewelry at garage sales in the early 1980s, has now developed into auctions from coast to coast, in all avenues of antiques.

Mainly I display original vintage art of the 19th to mid 20th century. I especially like the Canadian and European impressionist pieces, but provide a well rounded array of all types of art.

Featured will be a set of 6 pen and ink drawings, created in 1973 by revered Toronto artist Ian Leventhal. These were done right after he graduated from OCAD, the format is rare, as he developed his unique style later on. This will be the first public showing  since they were created.

Also coming is one of my favorite Art Deco   period glass pieces.   A ruby to clear large Steuben Grotesque centerpiece bowl by Frederick Carder.”

Both of these items (and a few more which we will bring) came from the Port Dover area.”
