Starting to list again

Only 4 new items today, but its a start. Travelling back and forth between France and England always means a few days of readjustment when I have lots of other things to do.

First off, a set of 4 small vintage French keys, quite unusual in shape and colour. Love all the fabulous shades of grey the patina has produced -

next, this gorgeous set of antique French horn, bone and silver salad servers -

and two sets of gorgeous cold coloured vintage buttons on their original PARIS cards.
Whirligig design -
