French Fleamarket Finds part deux

Here we go with another instalment, trying to catch up with posting all the lovely new treasures I have found at the French brocantes since we arrived. 

Without further ado, the pics! -

1930s Art Deco crucifix

Fabulous button card, love the design, wish I knew what these funny buttons were used for -

The most amazing Holy Communion cards I have ever come across -

Mouthwateringly scrumptious Gustavian Grey damask ticking fabric, so difficult to find these days, and a small piece of red striped ticking, yay -

Small statue of the Madonna on ornate plinth -

Fascinating antique folding map in a book for exploring the area around Paris -

Exquisite all mother-of-pearl rosary -

Beautifully monogrammed huge French damask napkins/serviettes -

My favourite item of this post, the most deliciously PINK and white enamel pitcher, glorious!!! -

And from very tall to very small, a pocket Infant of Prague, tiny, yet so very detailed -

Gorgeous turn of the Century deep red velvet and silver metal frame with photo of a priest, from PARIS -

A vintage snake bit kit, love the little pharmacy bottle with that label -

Thats all for today, there are many more little treasures to come, I photographed a lot more today, but haven't had time to edit them yet. I'll try and do that tomorrow.

I am linking this post to the Etsy Cottage Style vintage party. Pop over and have a look at all the other fabulous vintage goodies. Until then, toodlepip xxx
