Hello...remember me? I used to participate in VTT religiously, just like the Sistah's at Holy Crappers. Then I went on vacation. And I was gone for five VTTs. Now I'm back!
I have a special friend who wants to help me this week.....
That's right, it's my little astronaut from NASA....out of uniform.
This is an ivory carved bullfighter and bull, under glass, in a velvet frame. My husband bought this in the late 50's, when he was in the Navy, serving in the Mediterranean when it was a great tour of duty.
Like most of my hangable things, I haven't hung it yet. Maybe I'm not making sense...should I repeat that? Anyway, that's why my little friend was holding it upright for you to see.
The back is all sealed up, and I would like to take it somewhere to have it opened so I can clean the glass in the inside.
The carved ivory is very detailed. One day I will have a 40 pixel camera for all the detailed stuff, because 8 doesn't do it.
Now I have to go see all the other vintage goodies this Thursday.
If you have something to share, please visit Confessions of An Apron Queen and add you name and link to this week's list. It's a great way to intoduce your blog to others, and see some pretty nice vintage treasures.
And while I'm at it, please stop by Shell In Your Pocket and spend some time looking around. You will want to go back again. The icing on the cake is a give away she's having. Hop on over!
