I keep meaning to write a post about this bed I found last summer…and I’m working on it. I just follow my heart sometimes on collecting…and find a place and use for the item eventually. Along the way I meet so many interesting and amazing people. Great blogging friends, wonderful textile dealers that love the hunt and bring back amazing pieces. Antique dealers like Atelier de Campagne that scour England, France and Belgium for that next best thing. People on Ebay or Etsy that sell the most amazing finds from their own collections or early Flea Market jaunts!. It’s always worth keeping your ears open for that “something in the back room”.
My one piece of 18th c French porcelain. Slow Buds the Pink Dawn like a Rose here
As I mentioned earlier, I bought the most amazing piece of 18th century silk at the end of last summer, and in the course of emails back and forth the seller mentioned she had a nice sized collection of 18th c French porcelain. Catnip to my ears! Over the next few months I proceeded to beg for photographs, and more information, and the result is that I will be hosting a private sale of her 18th c French Porcelain on a page of my blog for the next month or so. The pieces have been collected over a long period of time, and it is rare to find so many full sets. There is no middleman, these items are being sold directly from the seller. Her email is listed at the end of the page. I have already pulled my pieces off the market, am tempted to pull one more piece off. But I will be gracious and let you guys have a look first.
