Of course you want to give dad something special, something that says Thank You for everything he’s given you over the years.

If you want to give dad a big treat, our selection of beautiful antique French furniture offers lots of options including handsome antique desks. Every piece is unique because every piece was handmade more than a century ago in the era that prized fine craftsmanship.
For example, this antique French Hunting style desk which dates to around 1880. The oak desk boasts carved winged beasts that look like mythological griffins, with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. It’s a stunning choice for dad’s home office or library.
But you don’t need to splash out on a big piece to find a unique gift for Father’s Day.
OK Casting is one of our vendors of newly hand-crafted pieces and the prices are very reasonable for such high-quality pieces. Every piece is also made right here in the USA, which is another thing for dad to love!
For example, the company offers an exceptional collection of handsome bookends like these golfer bookends. Other choices include dogs, horses, wild animals, birds, golfers, polo players, fishermen, and even Chief Sitting Bull! You’ll be able to find a set of bookends to match dad’s interests and every piece is hand-cast in resin and hand-painted at the time you order it. They are crafted with incredible detail and as they are hand-painted, each one is unique. Other OK Casting options include clocks, lamps and desk accessories.
If dad loves sailing or the nautical life, one of the most unique gifts you could give him is one of the hand-crafted model ships we stock from Old Modern Handicrafts.
These model ships are hand-built to scale using traditional techniques. It can take the craftsmen hundreds of hours to build a ship. Some models are built to museum-quality level and some are exclusive editions with a unique serial number.
This is the model of the USS Constitution. also known as Old Ironsides. A legendary ship in the War of 1812, the frigate is now a national landmark, docked in Boston. The model is full of amazing detail… isn’t it terrific?
For the man who has everything, a telescope from our selection of telescopes, binoculars, magnifying glasses and opera glasses is a gift he’ll enjoy forever.
This hand-held telescope is one of our recommendations, and it is very reasonably priced at only $119 at time of writing. The telescope is made of high quality brass, with each component crafted with the finest craftsmanship. It comes safely nestled in an antique-looking leather overlay, leather carrying strap and cap on both ends of telescope.
If dad is a wine connoisseur or an elephant lover, then this wonderful new Scarborough House brass elephant wine bottle holder will be the ideal unique gift for him. The verdigris brass elephant is sure to bring a smile to his face every time he uses it, and the cheerful elephant rests on an inclined black stone inlaid base, to keep the wine bottle at just the right angle.
The elephant is beautifully crafted with every attention to realistic detail by the brass workers at Scarborough House and the verdigris effect on the brass gives an aged effect.
Whatever you choose as a unique gift for dad, we wish you and your family a very happy Father’s Day!
