I love how I say that I don't collect many things due to space and budgetary constraints. When I look at the list, it is not that short. And of course, I justify adding items by saying that I will put them in my Etsy store. Well, a few of these have made it there and one remains unlisted. Balance, right? ;)
This set quite literally arrived on my doorstep at 3:30 yesterday afternoon. I finished my day job and promptly listed it at 5:45pm.
Isn't is beautiful? All three pieces are in very good condition. From what I can tell it dates to the early 1900's.
I love the gilt and calligraphy.
My favorite part is the ribbing on the side. Do you ever wonder how we went from this sort of beauty and attention to detail to what we produce now?
Anyways, this set sold within 30 minutes of listing it. Of course, I am happy about that because someone else can now enjoy it. Also, it allows me to reinvest in the store. But I thought that it would hang out in my apartment for at least a week or two. How's that for being ungrateful? ;)
This beauty I am keeping for myself.
The best part, again, in my opinion, is the detailing on the side.
I have found a few more of these which will be in my store in a few weeks, when they arrive from France.
Have a wonderful day.
