An auction house in Yorkshire,Tennants, is hosting an exhibition and sale of vintage costume and textiles. Whilst there are only a couple of the type of items that I buy to sell - quilts and Victorian whitewear - the catalogue has been a delight to look through. This is loveliest quilt that I have seen for a long time
Too good surely to sleep under!
The other lot which took my eye is not a textile or costume item but it is remarkable.
A perfectly proprtioned 1930's doll's kitchen room set. It is complete with dresser, table, chairs and the tiniest detail has been remembered - cheese grater, whisk and rolling pin! (Click on the photos to enlarge)
This exhibition is well worth a look if you are in the area.
