About Laurel Antiques of Maine
Laurel Antiques is a family venture that has been in business for over 25 years. We exhibit at antique shows primarily up and down the east coast. For several years we maintained booths in group shops located in Maine and New Hampshire. We now concentrate on shows, direct trade with regular clients, and our website which we have run since 1998. We have narrowed our specialties to handpainted porcelain, art pottery, fine costume jewelry, purses, and accessories. We are known for selling beautiful Limoges and American Belleek. We do like to experiment with other lines of merchandise, so you never know what you will find offered for sale here, so check all categories.
"Dearest Amy and Bob... Gorgeous is not even close to 'the word' describing these three pieces. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the first opportunity at buying Ms. Miler's pieces...I am really overwhelmed with these pieces. It took me a half hour to unpack and breakdown the boxes. It must have taken you over and hour to pack it for shipping...A+!!!!!!" J.M. of CT

Alicia L. Brandow
Buxton Alicia Lezak Brandow, age 70, died after a long illness on August 12th, with her husband and several of her children at her side.
Alicia was born October 23, 1933, a daughter of Andrew and Margaret Lezak in Cleveland, Ohio. Gifted at an early age with an exceptional singing voice, she was educated by tutors in languages, art, dance, piano, and especially in voice. A favorite of the large Hungarian community of eastside Cleveland and well known as Lezak Ica, she sang for weddings, on radio, in dinner clubs and other Cleveland venues in the early 50s.
On October 25, 1952, Alicia married her husband Robert H. Brandow who survives her. Also surviving are six children: Eric H. of East Hampstead NH, Carl C. of Eddington ME, Jeffrey E. (with wife Anne) of No. Yarmouth ME, Susan L. of Bangor ME, Dean A. of Morgan City LA, and Amy L. B. Jackson (with husband Philip) of Buxton ME. She also loved and was loved by three grandchildren: Robert W., Daniel C., and Timothy H. Brandow all of North Yarmouth ME.
Having moved to Bangor with her family at age 35 she considered Maine her true home. For the past twelve years she made many friends as an antiques dealer specializing in vintage jewelry and hand-painted porcelain or pottery. Eleven years ago, upon her husbands retirement, she moved to southern Maine to be closer to grandchildren and nearer to large out-of-state antiques shows.
A family-only memorial service will be held this weekend. Donations may be made in Alicias memory to any charity of your choice, or to the Patrons of the Arts Endowment Fund, University of Maine, Orono ME 04473.
