New Treasures

I hope this posts finds you all well! It's been ages since I popped in last, did you realise I was gone? Just back to say a quick hello and show you a few new pieces too...always the collector!

I've been adding to my Victorian Mother of Pearl Shell Coin Purse Collection
and Jewellery Caskets
Bought a box a clock parts at the tip and rebuild this clock!
A few new Bonzo's, including a hard to find mustard pot

some more ladies

My mannequin now wears a new bridal stand hat. I've run out of room.
Would you believe this chair came from the tip? It dates to around 1850 and is made of papier mache with mother of pearl inlay. Its as light as a feather.

Some exciting news, I was commissioned to make Sir Donald Bradman stamp jewellery pieces for the Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame, Bowral, NSW. They were posted today, and I hope they do well.

Thanks for visiting! Tam x
