I hope you enjoy a quick post on some of the cute cherub items in my collection!
But I thought it would make a good easel for this antique photo of instant relatives!
Displayed amongst the adorable cherub items is a vintage ormolu trinket box full of vintage brooches. The cherub candle stick is one of several similar I own--I have a hard time passing them up when I find one!
Look at the feet on this plateau! So romantic!
This ring is one of my favorites--I bring it out only for very special occasions! It is a Victorian gentleman's ring. The cameo is of a Roman soldier carved from onyx and set in 18k rose gold with East lake engravings around the band.
This beautiful cameo was a deal at a local antiques mall--it only cost $1.50! It was originally $6.00 but was 75% off! It is 14k gold!
The lipstick holder just complements everything!
This is one of the only places in the house I have anything gold or coper-toned on display--or red for that matter. Generally I prefer tarnished metal or silver and do not like red--but they go so well together to make such a romantic display I couldn't resist.
Here is a nice close-up of the star rhinestone brooch and the intricate snuff (?) box. I hope you have enjoyed this quick glimpse of more of my Shabby French Cottage! Please check back often. My new master bathroom is nearly complete! Photos soon!
