Currently cooing over....
In love with bloodstone at the moment. This Art Nouveau bloodstone ring is calling my name
Fancy pants Victorian parure using ancient Roman coins
Incredible Persian miniatures necklace
Dreamy peachy kimono
Plum velvet cocoon cape - described as a 1920's piece, this rather reminds me of an earlier Poiret-esque silhouette. The draped, relaxed top section taking inspiration from the Far East, banded tightly at the hem, perfect over those restrictive hobble skirts he invented.
Edwardian silk purse with beautiful lining
Bad ass antique decanter I need in my house right now
Beautiful print, unfortunately already reserved for some lucky lady (or guy, I suppose)
Art Nouveau candelabra
Mmmustardy celluloid dance purse
Tiny little filigree coin purse
Jaw-dropping antique cuff. Belongs on my wrist
Oh so pretty 1950's Bill Blass dress
Art Deco celluloid vanity purse
Silk beaded flapper dress, in remarkable condition
Crazy dyed fox fur and leather vest
Incredible silver antique bag
And finally...the one that got away. I don't know why I didn't buy this when I first saw it, but my hesitancy cost me dearly. I regret not buying it so so much. I mean, what the hell even is it? A 1920's fur pom-pom vest thing? I hope you went to a good home!
