It’s a very chilly 25 degrees here today and I’m thinking about hearts, and love, and roses, and chocolate…..all things to warm the romantic heart.
This precious and very delicate antique valentine card was found many years ago when my husband and I were out antiquing.
It must have been very special to someone of long ago, because it was already custom framed in this small shadowbox frame. I’ve never found another one like it.
Can you see the depth? It has about 4 layers.
Of course I’ve never removed it, but it’s most likely German.
Look at all that awesome gold Dresden scrap.
As I was thinking about Valentine’s Day today I ran across some antique porcelains that I have with cherubs on them. The detail on these pieces is amazing.
This is an irregular shaped vanity tray from Limoges, France.
Here is a cute small plate from Bavaria.
But my favorite is the Sevres cachepot. The detail is incredible and it has the most gorgeous shade of blue.
Cherubs are such a popular icon anytime of the year, and especially during February. Do you have favorite cherub pieces or valentines?
It’s supposed to snow here tomorrow and I guess now that I’m thinking about Valentine’s Day I’ll start planning some tabletop vignettes.
Here’s to romance,
