Whilst it may be true that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone, it is also true that you don’t know what you want until you see it! I have been looking for a light antique or vintage (even I don’t know the current definitions and I really don’t care) bed spread or “couvre-lit” to suit the terrace bedroom for years with no success.
Then I find this unique, beautiful, hand made piece left and right- when I wasn’t really looking and it has the cream, amethyst (parme) and period pink colours of the paint finish that I have just completed in the terrace room in France. Reminds me of the delicate lace, crochet, tatting etc at which my great aunts, Ethel, Maud & Annie excelled, my mother too. Here it is chucked over bed in UK. It was probably missed by other bargain hunters as was listed under “tablecloths” ( I don’t think so! or maybe our meals are messier than most?)
Then we have this French faience serving dish from a vide-grenier and one of a pair of large embroidery on silk pictures for the dining area. Somebody PLEASE tell me what the symbols mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
