Fair Haven Antique Dealer Finds Homes For Treasure – Each With…

first_imgBy Art PetrosemoloThe watches, clocks, jewelry and silver on the shelves at Blue Stove Antiques in Fair Haven all come with a story. Some of them are even as interesting as that of its octogenarian owner Isaak “Ike” Burstein.For more than 40 years, Burstein and his wife Myra have sold unique antique treasurers acquired locally or from locations across the world out of the shop. “It’s a labor of love,” he says, “and many times it is very hard to part with things I have acquired.” It is understandable as Burstein lost everything during the Second World War and lived through the horror of the Holocaust.A look in the store safe confirms Burstein’s sentiments for many of his treasures – trays of watches and jewelry – are locked up each night and brought out daily for display.“I always have been a clock collector,” says Burstein, “and am known for that in the business. Many people will bring their timepieces to me to expedite repair, to sell or just to appraise.”One of Burstein’s favorite and most treasured timepieces is a rare, 1746 Henton Brown Musical Bracket Clock made in London that plays six tunes. Burstein has owned it for more than a half century.In a business where many equate age into high price, Burstein cautions buyers that quality trumps age most times. “Remember,” he smiles, “they made junk 100 years ago just as they do today!”Born in Lithuania in Eastern Europe in 1929, Burstein, experienced the horror of World War II and Nazi atrocities firsthand. The family was unable to escape their homeland after the German invasion in 1941. Burstein survived for four years doing slave labor at Dachau, north of Munich in Southern Germany.Dachau was the first concentration camp the Nazi’s opened in Germany in 1933. There were some 32,000 documented – and thousands of undocumented – deaths during its 12-year existence.Burstein was freed by the allies in May 1945 after Dachau guards marched the remaining prisoners west away from the camp toward the German border in what he describes as a “death march.”Although the memories will be with him forever, Burstein today focuses on what happened since 1945, not before it. “My parents made sure I could speak English as a child,” Burstein says,” and I still speak several languages.”After being liberated, Burstein worked for one year as an interpreter for the United States Army in Munich before immigrating to the United States and starting a new life in New York City not yet having celebrated his 20th birthday.Burstein met his wife on New Year’s Eve in 1947. They were married in 1950 and have lived in New Jersey for more than 40 years. “Myra was interested in, loved and understood antiques and collectibles,” Burstein says, “and we opened the shop here in Fair Haven.”In the 1980s, the Bursteins renovated the building and he gave up his corporate job in New York City to focus on timepieces, jewelry and antiques, something both he and his wife loved.Today Burstein, 86, still travels to estate sales and flea markets looking for hidden treasures but more often than not, collectors bring items to him. He also has a client list with names we’d all recognize and he understandably protects. “You’d be surprised how many people buy quality watches, jewelry and antiques as an investment,” Burstein says. “Many times I actually buy back items from clients for more than I sold it to them because of appreciation.”The Burstein’s have two children. Their son Matt is a well-known antique restorer based in Boston and daughter Beth is a photographer in New Jersey.Burstein is patient with browsers and dabblers who visit his shop looking – many times – for a present with no idea of what they want or the cost involved. We have antiques in all price ranges he smiles as not everyone can afford a Patek Philippe, Breitling or Bvlgari watch that – even used – is expensive.Burstein recalls a woman who came in to have her dad’s Rolex watch looked at and repaired. She said her dad also was considering selling it and she wanted to know its value. “I looked at it,” Burstein says, “and told her that indeed it could be fixed and the watch was so valuable that I would be happy to give her dad a new Rolex to replace it as well as a sizable check.” Burstein says the woman was shocked and talked to her dad who decided he would keep the watch.When describing what makes a timepiece so valuable, Burstein is in his element. He reminds visitors that if you just need to tell time, a battery powered Timex will give you hours, minutes, seconds and probably even the date just fine.“But,” he goes on, “if you value a piece of engineering with hundreds of moving parts that tells time accurately plus accounts for the different length of months, leap year or even the phases of the moon – a watch which could take years to complete as well, running flawlessly for decades inside a precious metal case, and will appreciate in value every year – well that’s a work of art.”Many of Burstein’s collectors look for the unusual and unique. He cites a limited edition Longines’ watch – only 80 were made – to celebrate the 80th anniversary in 2007 of the Charles Lindberg’s trans-Atlantic flight. Burstein had a chance to buy one from an owner and gladly paid more than the retail price. It sits patiently in his shop waiting for its next owner.Burstein has good advice to new collectors of antiques, jewelry and watches. “Be sure you buy something of quality. Keep it serviced and care for it,” he says. “Buy one item of quality rather than waste your money on 10 items because they’re cheap.”last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SUNDAY JANUARY 29, 2017

first_imgPEGASUS UNFURLS BITTERSWEET STORYLINECHAMP CHAMPAGNE ROOM VS. UNIQUE BELLASHEER FLATTERY WORKS FOR GRADE III LEWISGRAZEN WINNERS AMONG STRING OF CHALKVAN DYKE IS RECOVERING FROM BROKEN ARM ARROGATE REIGNS SUPREME AFTER PEGASUS VICTORYIf there were any doubts after the Breeders’ Cup Classic, there should be none now.There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Arrogate.California Chrome, on the other hand, is heading out of Dodge.Sure, The People’s Horse had an excuse with a bum right knee in the final performanceof his storybook career, never mounting a threat in Saturday’s inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park won geared down by Arrogate, who was 4 ¾ lengths clear of 19-1 runner-up Shaman Ghost.California Chrome came out of the race with a possible chip in his right knee.Thus the widely anticipated rematch between Arrogate and Chrome, who were a dramatic half-length apart at the finish of the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5, never got close to becoming a reality.Arrogate will race again. Californian Chrome will not. He will make his new home in Kentucky as a stallion at Taylor Made Farm.The Pegasus thrill of victory, agony of defeat storyline stood out in bold relief, emotions ranging from euphoric to crestfallen in a heartbeat.Jerry Hollendorfer, winner of 7,218 races in his remarkable career, has felt both.“I was standing on the other side of the race track when Shared Belief pulled up (afterthe start of the 2015 Charles Town Classic, in which he suffered an injury that prevented him from finishing the race), and there’s just nothing you can do,” Hollendorfer said. “You’re helpless.” Hollendorfer was helpless too when Shared Belief, champion two-year-old male of 2013 and winner of the 2015 Santa Anita Handicap, died on Dec. 3, 2105, after colic surgery.The 70-year-old Hall of Fame trainer is not prone to high fives after a big victory, or extended periods of mourning after major setbacks. “I try to stay steady,” Hollendorfer said, adding he had no remedy as to how to deal with the inevitable disappointments. “You just hope that it never happens,” he said, “but if you run enough horses, it’s going to happen.”Added private clocker and bloodstock agent Gary Young: “Arrogate is a great horse, but it was really sad to see a great horse like California Chrome so empty so early. Starting up the backside at a time when Victor’s (Espinoza) usually got his arms full just trying to restrain him, you could see he wasn’t restraining him at all.“Soon after the five-eighths pole, he was actually chirping to him and trying to get him up there. He had all he could do to hold his position to try and keep Mike (Smith) boxed in there.”Chrome and his legion of fans can savor cherished memories of a fairytale better scripted for Hollywood, but for the unhappy ending. Chrome’s successes on the racetrack will be embellished in retirement, perhaps to the point of legend.“Now,” as Secretary of War Stanton said after Lincoln died from an assassin’s bullet, “he belongs to the ages.”Unfortunately, through no fault of his own, he went out like Willie Mays.

We’ve been nosed out twice. We got disqualified once, on New Year’s Eve so, we needed a win.“She’s a neat horse, she really is. The dam had not had anything worth a darn before that. Everyone that gets on her says you can’t even feel her hit the ground. She just has one of those big, long strides. She’s a sweetheart.“She threw in two horrible races at 1-9 and 1-5 and she got beat, with no apparent excuse. I think she has to be on the lead, or fighting for it. I think you have to go as fast as you can and that’s the way she likes it.

A Thousand Tales of Johannesburg, a city like no other

first_imgThe spell-binding new novel by South African playwright and author Harry Kalmer, A Thousand Tales of Johannesburg, describes Africa’s greatest city as a living, breathing character. Spanning a century, the book covers the best and worst moments in Joburg’s lifetime.Harry Kalmer’s new novel leaves you asking who gets to shape a citys identity. (Image: Author and playwright Harry Kalmer remains inspred by the city of Johannesburg. (Image: © Joanne Olivier)“The one thing about Joburg is how interconnected everyone is,” Harry Kalmer says. Sitting in a Bryanston coffee shop, surrounded by the well-retired and sound-tracked by the clink of coffee cups and cutlery, the author and playwright explains his reasons for writing A Thousand Tales of Johannesburg, a new novel about his hometown.“We’re losing a bit of it now because the city is growing very fast, but it’s always had this sense of dorpiness,” Kalmer continues. “Bryanston is a dorpie (a small town). “Linden and Greenside. These little nodes of habitation, but you don’t see these cities meet. For the book I had to create a hotel, to give them an excuse to meet.”Author and playwright Harry Kalmer remains inspired by the city of Johannesburg. (Image: © Joanne Olivier)A Thousand Tales of Johannesburg is a book about the people who go and come. It tells the stories of poor Afrikaners drawn by the gold reefs, the unseen Indian and Chinese families who shaped the city, and the modern African immigrants who are remaking it.Kalmer’s novel spans a century, from the early days of Johannesburg to 2008. Important writers – Mark Twain, Olive Schreiner, Charles van Onselen – have written great factual biographies of Joburg. These have done the city justice but, for Kalmer, fiction gives the chance to tell a more vibrant story. “Fiction interrogates things in a way that documentaries can’t. It tells truths that non-fiction can’t necessarily depict.”An exile’s view of homeIn the book, expat architect Zweig van Niekerk, long resident in London, is invited back to Joburg by a group of architects who have rediscovered his work. Zweig’s self-imposed exile was a result of his love and marriage to Serenita, a woman of colour. He returns to the city of his birth – and begins to see it with new eyes.Kalmer’s Johannesburg exists in one sense: it is based on actual geography, on actual spaces. The madrassah and the mosque can be found. So can the Chinese old age home and the girls’ school. “The hotel doesn’t exist, but it could have.”The architect returns in 2008, as foreigners from elsewhere in Africa are attacked and flee the townships for the safety of the city. It’s at the imagined hotel in Belgravia that the son of an Afrikaner, a Chinese photographer, Czech immigrant and Marceline, a Congolese refugee, meet and remake the city in their own image.“The fact of the matter is, the Joburg I depict exists only on paper. It is based in history and connected. But it is a personal interpretation of an experience or a representation of the city. Like all fictional cities – like Calvino’s Imaginary Cities – it only exists on paper.” ‘Places change, time moves on’Kalmer writes like he stirs his coffee. Deliberately. Thoroughly. And with a flourish, as he lifts the spoon out of the cup. Talking through the inspiration for the book he references great South African writers: Herman Charles Bosman, Nadine Gordimer.He moves on to Fordsburg-based artist Carl Becker, who created work on the Randlords and their contemporaries, from Gandhi to Abe Bailey and Cecil John Rhodes. “Becker said what he liked about Johannesburg was that you look up, you lift your eyes, and you see the most extraordinary Victorian and Edwardian architecture. When you lower your eyes you’re in Africa. For me that was the trigger for the book. To address that reality, that ‘alongsidedness’ of the city. That the city can live in so many ways.“There is a great line I remember by this Zulu guy who moved to Joburg from rural KwaZulu-Natal. He said in Johannesburg you have to look for the beauty. I think that is what a lot of people do. And I think that is the problem: people who write about Joburg tend to romanticise it.”Denizens experience their city in specific, personal ways. A Thousand Tales of Johannesburg is about how his characters find the city and their connections to it. “It’s very much a theme in the book. It is people who try to come to terms with the city. Be it through impressions or be it through structure or be it through street life. To show there are so many realities living side by side in Joburg.”A cowboy townJohannesburg should never have been. Built in empty veld by the chance discovery of gold, it is a city born only from the desire to make fortunes. It is a place whose residents, in the words of author Clive Chipkin, are not, “here for the benefit of our health”. Kalmer’s Joburg is that city, reinvented and rediscovered through new eyes.Like Italian author Italo Calvino’s Imaginary Cities, Kalmer’s book is a curious mix of history and lore-shaped memory. It maps the city beyond geography, a cartographer’s dream of half-remembered sights and sounds. It celebrates the way the city is constantly reinvented by people from elsewhere, drawn by its promise.A Thousand Tales of Johannesburg is a city dreamed up by artists, writers, hustlers and architects. It is a city that welcomes rich and poor.“Joburg can be a bit of a cowboy town. Poverty has always been an intrinsic part of this place, despite the towers of Sandton. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because it’s a place where you can survive. Think back on the book, people like the Van Niekerks thrived in protected employment. It’s always looked after poor people.”What inspires Kalmer is the city, his body of work, is the city where everyone is from somewhere else. It is a space where no-one ever feels really comfortable, and this gives the city its distinct personality.The Joey Hi-Fi-designed cover of Harry Kalmer’s A 1000 Tales of Johannesburg. (Image: Penguin Random House)Rooted – but restlessKalmer has tried to leave Johannesburg. “I came back. I don’t know why. It’s always been people and my stuff that’s brought me back. There aren’t any other cities that appeal to me. Things that I’ve loved and made my living from – theatre, music, advertising – are here. I’m connected here.”For the characters in A Thousand Tales of Johannesburg the same holds true. They are rooted in Joburg, but Johannesburg makes them restless. “Nobody is from here but they’ve been here for years. If you go back to the Muslim family, you go back to the Hindu family, you go back to the Chinese family. They all have roots going back to the late 19th century, but they all have this thing that this is not quite their place. It’s a very funny thing about Joburg. Nobody is from here but they have this perverse citizen’s pride about eGoli.”It is a city of open and cool people, Kalmer ends. A city where people want to know your story. And Kalmer’s book captures these stories, creating a living, breathing, inspiring world, like the city itself.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
