Easter is coming up - look at all the Easter bunnies...
Lots of chandeliers.
Then we drove to Regensburg, a very old city situated on the banks of the Danube. Which is where the flea market was too.
And now for the treasures - of course, not every flea market day can be as great as last Sunday. But I managed to bring home some booty.
Apparently, it was a box kind of day.
This box was full of vintage lace.
Another box had an assortment of these vintage pocket watch protective cases.
I couldn't resist the cute brass thimble with the lily of the valley stamping.
And the third box was full of these game pieces. They look as if they are made of dyed bone. But I have no idea what card game they are used for, so they will probably end up in my jewelry...
A few other finds - some bangles of unknown material; a little cherry locket; a mother of pearl piece, once probably a spoon handle, that someone turned into a pendant.
Beads! Of carved bone, antler and sea urchin spines.
And I found these two amazing brass tins - actually containing the silver solder! I have never seen solder like this before, it is much thinner than sheet silver solder, like a foil - so I am wondering if it is suitable for use with sterling silver, or does it just refer to the colour? Has anyone ever seen something like this before?
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday!
