What's It Wednesday #123
For those of you who follow us, you know we are big time
hoarders collectors. We've shared many with you over the years, but today I'd like to give you an update on a few of them. I still love my little French clocks. I found this one recently and couldn't resist adding her to my collection. The enamel faces are so beautiful!
Now this is a real weakness too. Anything silver for the vanity gets my attention, so these were real finds. The cuticle file is so dainty, it even has an initial engraved on it as does the buffer. However, my favorite is the hair receiver! Can you imagine, a receptacle made especially for the hair from your comb or brush? Love the Victorians!
This delicate little filigreed pillbox takes pride of place in my collection.
Just think of all the work that went into making this box. Such a treasure!
Blue and white is a staple for us at Ivy & Elephants, so we always seek it out. This is a nice unusual piece, It's a Chinese brush pot for a scholar's table, not very old, but interesting just the same.
Last, my little Dutch girl flower basket lamp. I shared my fruit basket lamp here, so I thought it appropriate to share the flower one.
Here she is all lit up. Czechoslovakian lamps are getting to be almost impossible to find, which makes me cherish this little darling all the more.
These are some of the pieces I've added to my collections. What have you found lately?
Thanks to all of you who partied with us last week. Please link-up and join us again. Remember, it's not a party without you!
