Half Perc No.4

5.5 x 5.5 oil on hardboard
During my last search for vintage appliances on ebay, I came across this Cory electric percolator. I was struck by its elegance, but it was that ribbed handle that cinched the deal for me. I have to admit the complexity of that handle increased the time it took to paint, but I think it was worth the effort. If you'd like to bid on this piece, you can access the auction by clicking here.

Excellent painting and nice subject. I do love the style of some vintage goods can be.

I just for the life of me cannot figure out your technique, Neil. This is so beautiful and again, looks like a photograph to me. I must say the coffee pot is gorgeous in its own right!
