I have just told a friend
that I am not
a metal kinda girl!
only to realise
that one of my favourite pieces in our home
is just that
Actually it is worse than metal it is
onyx and gilt!!
way, way, way over the top!
Oh dear! Do you think
I should have dusted it before taking these?!
the floor could have done with a good mop too!
Half way up are the hooks for an umbrella
or parasol as it is a French piece
Then at the top the hat goes at a jaunty angle
don't you just love the hanger for the coat? (wide and rounded
so no mark was left on the jacket)
and then a small hook for a cane!
There it stands in all it's over the top glory
I understand it is French probably mid 1800's
and if any one has seen one like it
or knows anything about it I would love to hear.
It normally hold a red Fez that UK daughter brought home
for her Father
My Father's pith helmet, rather aged and tired
but it was well worn during the 2nd World War
and a Malacca cane.
So maybe, just maybe a could be a
metal kinda girl!!
