News-Antique.com - Aug 03,2008 - In the past month we have acquired some of the most extraordinary treasures from historical figures of Sports, Vintage Hollywood, Notorious Bad Guys, and the Presidency. Top of the list is a very scarce 1864 Abraham Lincoln/Andrew Johnson campaign token. Also, original lobby cards from “It's a Wonderful Life” and unsettling “death photos” of John Dillinger the day after he was gunned down.

For over 20 years Conway’s Vintage Treasures has been scouring the universe in search of the most unusual collectibles and antiques. Not the typical material you see at most antique shows, but rare, selective material like highly rare autograph items from some of the most extraordinary personalities that ever lived. We also get excited over historical and Hollywood memorabilia such as original presidential documents and stunning vintage movie art posters. These were the posters actually used in the movie theatres over 50 years ago before the computer generated posters replaced the highly talented movie poster artists of the silver screen era. The vintage artwork on many of these movie posters is amazing. For example, note the stunning artwork for “House on Haunted Hill”, a 1959 horror classic starring Vincent Price.
We also acquire some of the most desirable Fine Art Paintings primarily from 18th,19th and early 20th Century. Our selection includes spectacular landscapes, seascapes, abstract and still life. Our collection is also diverse from important Vietnamese Artist Vu Cao Dam to American Artist Ernest Fiene who was well known for his American City paintings and exceptionally executed portraits.
So, on a quiet evening after a long day take a stroll down memory lane and discover some of the incredible vintage treasures we have in our collection. And, don’t hesitate to drop us a line, we’re always happy to hear from other serious collectors.
