Art Deco to Retro Art Glass, Flapper Half Doll, Depression era Chest of Drawers plus more today.
Today Kristen went to an Estate at Aspley and came home with some real treasures. The year seems hardly underway and I am already being confronted with the delima " to keep or not to keep ? ". Sigh.
Barsony era lady, lovely size and colour of her skirt and head scarf.
Lots of red glass.
Charming cruet set with the popular 1930's desert theme, palm trees etc. Similar to the prints pictured further below and ink well set in blue glass, behind.
I LOVE half dolls. I don't collect them but soooo wish I had started years ago particulary when you get cuties like the one on the left. She might have to stay with me for a while anyway.
Old tobacco tins.
Two more favourites. Lace iron with trivet and small depression era Chest of Drawers.
Pity the detail of the trivet is hidden underneath.
Note the delicate details such as the handles and the metal strips on the corners,
Nice bright colours on this pair of prints.
I wonder who this pair are. Lovely ornate frame.
Swan Lake...the ballet, on the right was a popular theme in prints from the 1940's to 1960's along with the ballet Giselle. The painting on the left made me think of my friend Julie from Being Ruby, as it has two of her favourite things, the sea and the moon peaking out from behind a night sky.
