Just a little find…
a half set of 18th century French paste buckles
tucked in a velvet lined box….
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!
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.
