Gentle Friends thanks so much for stopping by, I wanted to mention a few tings I picked up last weekend while out and about doing my usual thrifting and estate sale shopping. Here's a couple of pieces I especially liked....
.... the silver piece turned out really nice, it started off really black with years of tarnish, and polished up beautifully, the pattern is "Navarre," the "deep Cut" plate is a piece from the Westmorelnad Company and was cheap to begin with, then when I got it to the counter it turned out to be on sale and was half price - now you can't beat that!!
This next piece I picked up at a thrift store and wanted to show some snaps to get other opinions....
Now I would call this a table top "cellarette," It looks kind of like a desk, made of mahogany with it's original or very old brasses, and the brass ball feet are either really old or original.. The finish is faded from sunlight on three sides, there is a chip from the mahogany veneer on the back left side, but overall still in pretty good condition on the front and top. It has two of it's original decanters (or very old hand blown, gilt decorated ones) The lining is in good condition on the interior and the removable dividers. It stands about 9 1/2" tall and is about 7" square....... what do you think????? I can't find out anything on the Internet nor do I know where to start looking.
That's about it for today sports fans - do stop again!!
