The Columbian Lady
Step into Columbian Lady in Sutter Creek and you’ll feel like you’re on a tour of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. Items here can reach into the six figures, and include furniture created by John Henry Belter, a premier cabinetmaker of the mid-19th century rococo-revival era. Take a look at the flasks—old whiskey bottles that were
akin to travel mugs from Starbucks; people leaving a bar would buy a bottle for the road. There’s usually something distinctive about them, such as George Washington’s face. Very old flasks can go for as high as $75,000. 61 Main St.
