as of course is the stylised sinuous lotus flower design carving at each side.
But the most beautiful part for me is the beaten copper inlay in the top corners with the stylised flowers and the real turquoise inlaid stones–below-I had no idea what to do with this piece when I picked it up on ebay, but I always knew that a use would suggest itself, and it has- we will rub back the damaged finish, apply a matte wax, add a row of forward facing dowels and hang above the sink in the kitchen to hold wine glasses
These linen table mats –below- have little open pockets to hold the matching fringed napkins, The pink on black rose embroidery and the matching bohemian style embroidered braid borders make me think of something that might be found in a Romany caravan.
Finally, this vintage floral bedcover and it’s soul sister of a cushion turned up a week apart in different charity shops.. serendipity………
Bit floral for me but both have gone to happy new home via ebay
