Treasures found on an England Antique Trip

These are a few of my favorite finds from my October buying trip in England.

I love this 1774 Garden Putti boy from Oakley Court of Windsor on the Thames... of course I had to prep him up for the holidays.

Another yummy lead piece ... a 1765 Fleur de Lis covered water Cistern.

Lead Fleur de Lis flower pots from the 1930's.

A fruit wood carved Putti face.

A 16th century Virgin & child painting.

Vintage petanque boules... just super cool.

A Swiss Bittern Head paper clip from 1880 - the ultimate desk-top gift.

A Boar pen wipe.

An ink well. Too cool.

A black forest match holder.

A grandfather clock face... the blue & white scene is fabulous.

A very sweet Moon grandfather clock face.

A darling enamel of a Mother and her children studying sea life - note the crab, shells & seagull.

A stunning Reyanrd the Fox door knocker. Late 1800's.

A French jeweler's wooden ring display hand... all the joints move perfectly.

A Tour jewelry box covered with a baccalian party of putti.

The most handsome deco style Money box that I have ever seen.

A gorgeous painted pen & ink tray.

Some beautifully covered books. I have never seen faux gator boarding before. And the other is a textured Japanese rice paper cover.

Simply fantastic... match holder from an English country estate.

Ceramic French wine barrel numbers from 1910. These are so awesome I am almost sold out.
