Porcelain girl holding yellow Iris

$13.00 plus shipping (insurance required)

This little girl was one of my mother's favorite things. She kept her on top of her chest of drawers. The only markings I can find on the bottom are part of the mold and very faint. I can read Holland and then there is something else I can't read. She is about 6 1/4" tall and at the widest part of her dress she is about 4 1/2". Her hair is a lovely chestnut color, the dress is light blue and her fingernails are painted pink.

Mother said the four rows of lace around the bottom of her dress was real lace applied to the porcelain. I don't know if this is true or not. I hope so! I thought she was perfect, but it looks like there might be 3 places on the bottom row of lace where the little rosette between the scallops is missing. I would never have noticed If I hadn't been inspecting it so closely.

She's is a lovely little lady who would love to grace your dresser or curio!

Fairy #1 of 2

$6.00 plus shipping

This sweet fairy is about 7" tall sitting. She is bendable. I bought her at a local florist at their Christmas open house about 8 years ago. They can sit in the tree branches or brighten a bedroom, as mine have been doing.

Tiara Exclusives Honey Dish Black

$15.00 plus shipping

This glass honey dish is from the 70's. I worked for Tiara Exclusives and accumulated/bought a good bit of glass. Add this to what my mother bought, and the cabinets are popping!

There were numerous colors of these honey dishes. I think I may still have a purple one as well as this black one. It measures 5 1/2" square and 6" tall to the tip of the lid.

Remember, every room in the house needs some black decor to add drama!

Chain with three Cloisonne Fish

$20.00 plus shipping SALE! $10.00 PLUS SHIPPING!!!

This pretty cloisonne fish is 2" long and 1/2" high. The two small fish are included in this price. They are 3/4" long. One is blue and one is orange. The big one is medium blue with light blue accents. They are jointed head to tail so that they move like real fish. Mother and I often had the same things. These were Mother's. I don't remember if they were bought in the 70's or 80's but I think it was 70's. There is a chain included which is approximately 27" long. I have no idea what the quality of the chain is. It looks to be of reasonable quality and is not tarnished.

I will ship at the best rate possible unless you request faster delivery.

Cleaning out the attic (and everywhere else)

Being descended from a long line of "collectors", my house is bursting at the seams. There are many things that I want to find new homes for before we relocate in the future.

I will start posting things here, hopefully today, that will be for sale. Some will be at modest prices and some will be reasonable prices. There will be a few things of value that I will price accordingly and hold onto if they don't sell.

Since many, or most, of these will be fragile, shipping will have to be determined.

Please stay tuned for shopping opportunities!
