Everything Old is New Again
Yesterday made one of my rare forays, with The Stylist, to a flea market. At the 24th Street Flea Market (between 6th and 7th Avenues in a parking garage for those not familiar with this market) we saw these beautiful reproductions (two mercury-glass hurricane lamps and a large silvered, glass vase) for sale. The dealer told us that they were modern reproductions made in Europe. We both marveled at the craftsmanship and the design. Very Dusty Belgian Chateau we liked to imagine.
Well, this morning I got up early and took some pics. Not 100% sure they will stay here at the apartment. They might end up on the shelves at the prop house where I hope they won't look down on their less pedigreed neighbors...
