Very cool. I love antiques, not only because they are better quality and so interesting, but I am fascinated to think that I am holding onto a piece of someone’s personal history. I find this very reassuring for some reason

It gives me pause for thought, thanks for creating This Thread it’s made me look more closely at some of the things that I have. Here is a Turkish tea set that I bought for $20 about 20 years ago

@oe1489 I’m pretty sure I got it in a little antique shop in Bailieborough, a small town on Highway 28.

A man and his wife had renovated an old church into an antique store. I bought several things from him, one of my favourite being an old chest of drawers from Newfoundland. It looks about a hundred years old, and has all kinds of character.

I really don’t know. I’m not sure if it comes across in the photos, but it seems very well-worn. I get a sense of it being someone’s personal property … well-used and well-loved

I am a huge fan of rustic, so when it shows wear and tear this pleases me all the more

I collect antique film cameras. Have too many now. Downsizing the collection. Need less stuff.

Here is one that I have had for decades. I’m not even sure where I got it, I don’t recall. It is an advertisement for an Art Exhibit in France

The original was painted by Paul Berthon of the Art Nouveau movement.

@bluebutterfly what a beautiful image!! I am recording an album right now called Tinctures and Tonics. I would love to use this image as an album cover, if you would be okay with that?

I have searched the web for an image to use, but they are all pretty boring. This has an excellent composition and interest to the eye
