Gorgeous Rugs [Apr. 16th, 2012 - 01:05 pm]
Show Your Antiques!

I am always picking up gorgeous rugs! I began my love with other textiles and have since grown to adore Persian Rugs/Carpets.

Unfortunately my house only has so much square footage for rugs so I've started selling some on etsy here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/EleanorMeriwether?section_id=8032241

Here are a few examples of the antique beauties that I have!

Pacific North West Native American Storage Basket. I love it so much. I have been told it's a museum quality heirloom. It is so beautiful, made of cedar and umbricated cherry tree bark. I'm unsure of which tribe it comes from, but I believe Yakima. It's been in my family for over 80 years. 20 years in my parents home, 25 years in my aunt's and over 35 years in her mother-in-law's attic. It's 12" high and 10" diameter, but the lids not in perfect condition and the basket construction is sound but it has it's flaws in the bark decoration.

my antique silver desert spoons.
They are great bell flower decoration with flower details on front and back with cute bow detail on back as well.
Very old, very beautiful and very Victorian. I think they're possibly Federal Period, or possibly from around the 1870s?

They are part of an estate passed down through family, 5" long and tarnished a little. small marking on back reads, "C.G.H. EXTRA IMA N.S." unsure of marking meaning, would love to find out for curiosity's sake!

I do infact have the spoons and the basket up for sale on Ebay right now, but I didn't want to solicit my auctions since I'm not sure of the community's policy on auctions. If anyone is interested though just let me know and I will gladly link you :)

New antiques community [Jan. 26th, 2007 - 10:51 am]
Show Your Antiques!

The Antiques Guide is a community created to help identify and perhaps value items that may or may not be antiques. Generally an antique is defined as being 100 years old or more, but many will say that items from as late as the 1970s may be considered antiques provided they have a value as collectible.

Just a few antiques from my collection. I will be getting pictures of the antique furniture in my bedroom once I get off my rear and clean it up in there. Haha!

But for now...Collapse )
