The day after Thursday Three

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????What are these little gems?

Left & Right-

Crochet wool with silk linings, at about 9″ x 6.5″ way too small to be nightdress cases.

Maybe made for handkerchiefs  or funky clutch bags?

I have to find a use as they are in terrace bedroom and la cave accent colours…

???????????????????????????????  Below- My latest  picture purchase, wonderfully simple hand painted image of two cranes, signed by artist and in a lacquer frame. Beautiful proportions and colours- for le salon.

Right-DSC03003 This beautiful piece is in silk with an intricate hand knotted fringe. It is the most wonderful jewel shade with a sort of classical  design border. I should part with it in the spirit of my current “purge” of anything that is surplus to requirements of French house but it is hard to part with pieces like this.



Always the collectors conundrum……
