Victorain Whimsy at its best....this is a tea bell, so delicate and fun.
Annoying that it is missing one of its little shell decorations...there should be three. Even more annoying that Kristen thinks it may be somewhere at the bottom of a giant skip in the front yard of the house from which it came...Yes this family were chuckers. I think though it is just part of the history of this piece and like an old wrinkled face that has beautiful imperfections it is now part of the history of this little bell.
Look at that face...such detail in something so small and delicate.
This wonderful uranium glass vase has Greek mythical chaps on the sides and is Art Deco at its loveliest. Probably made by Walther.
Victorian Toothpaste container...a stunning and large example. Negotiations are still ongoing for the keeping of this one...(Keep husband or lovely toothpaste holder ?....a difficult choice...ha ha)
Absolutely wonderful jadeite Art Deco clock...such perfect weight and proportions... when you hold and touch it...such magic.
I have decided this is what I would like to dress like....Isn't she lovely? or rather aren't I lovely ? ha ha. I used to collect these many years ago so this one is a sentimental favourite...a needle case.
And look at this sweet little belle. Made in France, so charming as the French know how to do. To contact us about any item you see on the blog please email firstname.lastname@example.org
