On display this week


At this time of year when the daylight lasts well into the evening it´s difficult to get a good shot of the window in the shop...

We have a new fantastic demi lune with a original paint in a beautiful greenish grey shade. These are not easy to find these days when most demi lunes have been heavily patinated...
And on top is a very charming box from Västergötland with decorations of a wreath and a very unusual provincial version of the Swedish Shield, two different sets of 19th century glasses and a carafe of turbine model.
Under the table are a group of botanicals where the flowers are not taped to the paper which usually is the case but carefully stiched in place!

At the other end in front of a pale blue baroque door is a gorgeous armchair in white original paint with the most fantastic carvings. I have never seen anything similar to this. A personal favorite indeed! Placed on the seat are two silver saltines from the rococo period. They are dated 1750 and 1752 and are made in London. So graceful.
This month we are also featured in Gods och Gårdar so I placed the magazine in the chair as well, the photos in the article are beautiful. Unfortunately it´s not possible to link to the magazine, they really need to update their website...
