Vintage and antique pieces

You might be aware from previous blogposts of mine that I am a collector of old pieces, some of which are listed in my Etsy shops. Here are some pieces that will soon be listed.

A selection of vintage pieces for my Etsy shop

A beautiful needlework picture depicting Pierrot. I love the colours and it’s of good quality, just ready for framing. I’d love it in a white frame.

A wooden box of solid wood in an unusual drop shape, a vintage or antique piece.

A stunning candleholder with aged patina and worn silver gilding. Marked with “Freud Ltd London (C)”. From the font type and patina it would appear to be antique. A quick search did not yield any matches.

A pair of carved bone masks. I normally don’t buy masks but these seemed a good pair of nice make.

Yesterday we were on a walk in the neighbourhood and I went to check one of the charity shops (thrift stores). Lately I haven’t been on the lookout for items to sell because there are plenty still on my shelves awaiting to be added to the shops.

Usually I’m perusing second hand fashion for quality pieces for own use, to support a circular economy that benefits charitable causes and doesn’t further burden our planet. So I buy used things instead of newly produced clothing that continues to unnecessarily use up the resources of our planet.

This time I happen to stumble upon pieces that I thought would be a nice addition for my vintage shop and didn’t want to leave them behind.

They soon will be listed, and hopefully later adorn a new loving home. For now I’m enjoying them on the mantlepiece.

The other pictures shown in this photo are also available for purchase (worldwide shipping).
