Tuesday Treasure

This week I am sharing four of my favourite little pieces that I had from my Mum - she would have inherited them from her mum or mil - other than that I know very little about them except that I think they are so beautiful... and all so different....

This little round one is 10cm (4") high - both side aspects are the yellow rose design and the front and back have different pictures.....



This little one is also 10cm high and is more angular - an interesting shape and a little bit more cracked and weathered than the others....



This one is taller - about 12 cms (5") - I couldn't get close up without a blurry picture but the painting is so pretty and I love the blue and gold....



This one is definitely my favourite - as it has lovely little bugs - it is also 10cm and is different all the way round and has so much detail - so delicate and pretty.....



I hope you enjoy looking at these little treasures - now I'm off to Clare's to see what others are showing today.......

Aren't they pretty!!! I'm always amazed when something like this survives being handed down. They are so beautiful.

Oh yes they are lovely Fiona.
The octagonal ones remind me of really old fashioned tea jar / canisters.
