Gentle Friends, the fun things I found last Saturday seemed to take on a French theme......
..... I found the great vase of old Paris Porcelain at the Goodwill. HERE's a little info about this kind of porcelain, I also picked up two books about French history, one about Marie Antoinette, and the other about Louis XIV, a fun DVD and a sweet silver plate cup with an "M" engraved on the side.......
...... here is a close up of the vase, I was amazed at the super condition of this piece, virtually no chips, very little gilt loss and no cracks..... just top notch - and with it being about 150 years old I would have expected it to have a little damage....... I love this type of hard paste porcelain!! I've been calling it the "squid vase." ....... because doesn't it look kind of like a squid!!
There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by dos top again!!!
