weekend treasure...



Bonjour mes belles,

I hope that you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Ours as normal, was a busy one and Sunday was spent hunting for tresors.

One of my first finds was this antique missal or as it is called in French Missel, it dates back to 1886 and really is in fabulous condition. 



Love the gold leaf detail on the pages and the clasps are gorgeous and rare nowdays asmost have beenbroken so it is rare to find one complete with original clasps.




The inside cover, so ornate.....

Every page features incricate borders.......


From the same antique dealer, were 3 antique extra large antique rosaries which were worn by monks when completing the pimgrimage to Lourdes.




Next up was this gorgeous lamp which I am keeping for me....



At the last brocante of the day, I found these fabulous candelabras which have lovely opaline flowers, these are for sale but collection is preferred due to the fragile nature of the glass flowers.
 


The last find of the day was this fabulous florentine style picture which is a lovely decorative piece. 



I am now off to update the fabulously french online shop 

très bonne semaine à tous.....Leeann x
