Flea Market find

Just a little find…

a half set of 18th century French paste buckles

tucked in a velvet lined box….


flea market find

I carefully peeled back the

silk covered paper of the box lid lining

to find this lilting script….treasure!

Now to find an expert that will

get me behind that last bit of amber glue and paper!


Paste framed miniatures

Rare pair of French 18th c miniature paintings

in glittery paste frames…

When the world was lit by candlelight…

Aren’t these little beauties!

Found them in an old auction catalogue

and thought you’d like to see them.
