About a week ago,
we went to an antique show
in a Chicago suburb.
It is a show that has been held for over 50
years in a large suburban church. We got there early
and patiently stood in line
with all the other hopefuls.
As we were standing there,
this very sweet dealer who we have
purchased equestrian things
from in the past said,
"be sure to stop by my booth this evening,
I saved something special
for you and it is
under the table in my booth."
What could it be?
Well, once they opened the flood gates
so to speak, you can imagine,
I made a bee line to this booth.
She pulled out this silver-plated polo
pony and rider figurine.
I have not ever seen
anything like it before, have you?
No markings. Heavy and very intricate details
to include the harness and the polo mallet, all in tact.
The silver is in nearly perfect condition,
not worn at all. Stands about 12" tall.
As you can imagine, it was love at first site.
Then I found this old
top hat box. Great patina
with the old velvet faded interior.
|Top of the box has a little brass plate.|
|Sweet little inlaid wooden box with a horse and rider.|
|Old ironstone cheese crock stamped Stilton Blue on the bottom.|
|Vintage ormolu box with gold velvet lining.|
|Antique French-style brass desk clock... the arm is missing so the feathers fill the missing appendage.|
|Heavy metal little girl figurine... maybe a bookend at one time?|
|Found a pair of these hunt scene prints in square frames.|
|Close-up on a vintage neo-classic lamp.|
|Black lab relief panel in a gold frame... not old!|
Will share with you
more things we found...
rustic, country, primitive
farm style vintage collectibles...
on another post soon.
What do you think?
Anything here that you might have
brought home too?
