I was recently invited to preview an estate sale in a nearby beach community. So today, I took some time to carefully look through a collection that was 50 years in the making. I saw stunning 19th century clocks (over 70 of them) in all shapes and sizes. There were dozens of Black Forest carved wood clocks and French gilt and porcelain clocks.
I saw hundreds of pieces of chintz china along with dozens and dozens of vintage tole painted trays.
were treasures every where I looked. I made lists and checked them twice. I came up with a plan of action, what I will buy, where I will use it and what I can pay for it.
Then I came upon my favorite treasures of the estate. . . antique hand-carved Black Forest hand mirrors. Each mirror was a work of art, they featured oak leaves, acorns, roses, squirrels, pheasants and so many more exquisite details. It was a lovely afternoon, full of beautiful, unique antiques and vintage wares. The sale is scheduled to be held in two weeks. I will keep you posted.
