We are still recovering from a long (3 day) weekend. All the setting up at an Antiques Fair takes a goodly while and it takes just as long to pack it all away again! Here is a view of the rather splendid Welsh Folk Art chair, made entirely of thread bobbins, and dating from about 1880 - 1900. It had been stored in a barn for a while, judging by the dust on it, so guess who got to clean and polish every bobbin?
Some of the dust collectors offered for sale . . .
And yet more dust collectors. I especially love the 1960s Royal Copenhagen blue bowl at the front. Not to mention the Sami knife to its right, which has wonderful scraffiti reindeer engraved on it.
A selection of chairs and masks, and some more humble household stuff in the basket.
Bits and bobs - both the Beatrix Potter plates sold.
More ethnic stuff - lots from Africa, a splendid Omani dagger . . . and a really unusual Chinese bronze bed warmer . . .
My "Military Advisor's" end!!
Dashing off out now. Hope you enjoyed this glimpse of our "other life".
