This is another divine little treasure that I have to add to my collection. Last week at the brocante, a house clearer that I know well told me he had something for me that was beautiful but broken. I went with him to his van expecting something "shot to pieces" - but out of the newspaper came this 19th century candle lamp. The glass is broken but who cares?!!!
I think perhaps someone put a candle too high against the glass and caused it to crack. But like may of the treasures I have truffled out over the years it is timeworn and well loved. I think many a brocanteuse like me must have a home filled with cracked, chipped and damaged pieces that they all love too.
I will let you know what I find early tomorrow. There is a 300 stand local vide grenier and I just hope the rain holds off.
A la prochaine mes belles.........................
