Here are a few of the goodies I picked up at the antique show on Sunday. I was only moderately bad. It would have been easy to be VERY BAD, but rug camp is next week so I had to have some self control.
These are the sweetest little pair of mismatched baby shoes. The dealer thought the shoe on the left was older (perhaps 1910) than the shoe on the right, though . . .
. . . they were made by the same company. I tried a Google search but couldn't come up with any information. Does anyone have any information on Rosebud baby shoes?
How could I resist this little hooked piece for only $2.00? It is about 8' X 8.75" and just silky soft.
It has been a very long time since I've found affordable sterling silver napkin rings.
Mr. Turkey's broken neck is much less obvious in person.
This is the first calligraphy piece I've ever purchased. It is signed in two places Edward Andrews and in the boxy area it says "G E Littles Penmanship". It is undated, but the dealer thought it could be as early as 1870 ~ but I have no idea if that is accurate.
I also bought the DSO a couple birthday gifts and purchased one other item that I'm not sure if I will keep or give as a gift.
As always, it was a great show with so many quality dealers. This Sunday there is another show I plan to attend.
