This is one of the new acquisitions of antique hunting in France last week.
This pair of English antique Edwardian sterling silver chick birds pincushions we have bought in PARIS.
We will never know when these sweet little birds crossed over to the mainland of Europe. But we do know that they moved from France to the Netherlands last week. But we have to wait and see where they will move to soon.
These lovely chicks are 111 years old and of excellent quality; beautifully detailed and complete with the original old green velvet upholstery.
Hallmarks for Sheffield, the date letter is for 1906
High: 1.6 inch ( 4 cm).
Deep: 1.6 inch (4 cm)
Wide: 1.2 inch ( 3 cm)
It's in beautiful antique condition
We have just returned from an antique hunting trip from France.
These started in the French town of Lille. This French border city is just over the Belgian border. There we have already managed to get some nice things. Then towards the coast to Dieppe (this city was known for the high quality carving in the 18th and 19th centuries. The castle towering over the city of Dieppe is built on one of the chalk cliffs in it is a museum dedicated to the carvers from this region). There too, some nice business could have been done with traders. The next day to paris, there a few days started a good search and with good results. Back in our car and the journey continued towards the Loire Valley region and back home via Normandy, Hauts de France and Bruges in Belgium. It was another great week.
Everything was good about it, the weather, French food and wines, of course, not forgetting the antiques.
Greetings Jolanda and Ben and thanks for visiting our store.
