This came into our shop today:
It’s designer, the Chevalier company from Paris closed it’s doors to manufacturing in the late 1880’s, so these glasses pre-date that.It is made with brass and abalone, which is often referred to as mother of pearl.
This beautiful piece made me want to travel…
back in time
Bird watching in the forest.
although I’m note sure who is watching who here…
Into Moonrise kingdom. My dream of being inside a movie may yet come true!
Watch Il Divo at the opera!
Go on safari to the Ngorongoro crater in Tanzania
Go whale watching in Hermanus
Where do you want to travel?
And don’t forget your binoculars! Or be classy and use opera glasses….
