I am unlikely to top this. £4.99 off ebay and no-one else bid!!!!!!!!!!!!! (over two feet wide)
Probably 19th century (I think, but may be 18thc-gasp!) bead work embroidery on silk panel in original frame . Something very similar in near identical style frame is at auction right now in America.
This shockingly gorgeous and obviously antique piece came to me in a bit of corrugated cardboard, wrapped in a bin bag. I am delighted but gobsmacked.
Below- we have two faience lilas ceramic and rusty metal hooks. Just what I have been looking for (for YEARS!) to hang up our bathrobes in terrace bedroom in France.
Is this the shape of things to come? I don’t know, ask me on the 15th March
