Bonus blog- More antique and vintage finds

DSC02194These wonderfully chic early 20th century chromed light switches were in place at  the French house when we first moved in. I wanted to reuse them  but the Bakelite backing had melted (??!!??) and my Electrician was of the opinion that they were potentially  lethal.I guess it would have been quite costly to have new back and fittings made up and sometimes you just have to decide where to prioritise spending  your budget.

(I remember the days when we still had a bit of money and the luxury of choice!)  ???????????????????????????????

This little wool embroidery, about 27cm x 16cm-Leftresembles a miniature version of  a Kilim rug and is very old.

The linen tablecloth and napkins – below – I believe to be either Austrian or Swiss and I can imagine them in use on a pine table in a dramatically perched ski chalet. Unfortunately that is not the look we are aiming for in either the village house or the apartment in France , so sadly have been consigned to ebay  DSC02302DSC02301
