a sterling find ...

I found this beautiful silver, delicate, flower dish at the Bermondsey Antique Market a few weeks ago in London. It's a great little market ~ antiques, vintage stuff, and lots of silver.


The seller told me that this piece is Scandinavian and made in the early part of the twentieth century. Who knows if that's true or not! I just like it ~ the detail is amazing.


This is one of the loveliest things I have bought for myself for a very long time. It certainly wasn't a bargain at ninety pounds, but it was one of those times when I saw it and knew I had to have it!


More lovely finds over at Flea Market Finds today!

Have a lovely Sunday!






P.S. Half price pre-cut fat quarters of my handprinted fabric in the shop today ~ here!

How beautiful is that ! Just gorgeous. Sometimes we just have to splurge and get something really nice. That is definitely something lovely to have and display.

I love it! Seeing it on your fabric made me think the poppy design'd make a great screen print too...

Ohh, pretty - it looks like early Georg Jensen silver. You can research silver marks quite easily on the net and find out the year/maker.
