Set of demi tasse cups and saucers  and side plates made by Coalport, England,  in the Indian Tree pattern.  These probably date to the turn of the century.

Evening Purse, vintage

15 Feb



Cute  little hard platic shell evening purse with articulated flap and chain strap.  Probably not that old, maybe 1980’s, but very retro looking.  It has a very high gloss finish which reminds me of turtoise shell.

Please Note: This item is now SOLD

Mid Century Asian Themed TV Lamp

25 Jan

TV lamp 2

Asian themed TV lamp ca. 1950’s.  Made in Japan.  Love the chartreuse and green glazes. This one is a fixer upper as it has no light or plug.  An easy fix though.  Found it sitting on a shelf at the thrift store just waiting for me. It measures about 12″ wide.  The lamp will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte Ontario once it is fitted with a light.

Silhouette Pictures

I have always liked  silhouette pictures.  These  were found at a local thrift store and I was thrilled to get them.  They are reverse paintings on glass.  I think these would be from the  1930’s or 40’s.   The glass is slightly convex, adding some depth to the images.

Note: These have been SOLD

Antique Steel Cut Beaded Purses

11 Jan

beaded purses

I came across these beautiful antique purses at a recent sale and snapped them up.  The silver one is steel cut beads. They all date from late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  I believe this was the art nouveau period.  The floral one is tiny glass beads and the gold one is steel cut beads.  All are in very good condition.  They are for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte ON.

beaded purse rose with strap


This one is missing part of the strap that inserts through holes in the top of the bag.  It is beautifully detailed and much more impressive in real life.

Please note that the one with the roses and the gold coloured one are now SOLD!!
