Both London Calling and Aesthete's Lament have done posts on old stoves recently, and Housewerks had two beauties there. One was an old Chambers stove in very good condition, but there was too much in the way to get a good picture (I was also wearing a long skirt).The other was a wood stove which has mica windows. It's just an incredible piece and is in nearly perfect condition!
My dear Maison 21, who loves bright and shiny things, has an incredible Moscow Mafia-style chandelier on his blog right now. This one is a little more to my taste, but still bigger than what would fit into my house!
Months ago, House of Beauty & Culture showed a lovely mirror which I lusted after and today, I found something similar at Housewerks. It looks like a tin oriel window, and I am sure that with a little work, it would make a brilliant mirror! I would stand it on top of a chest of drawers, I think.I am looking for a chest with lots of drawers, and when I saw this one, I just fell in love. Too bad the drawers are too small for what I need. Ben explained to us that this was a watch-repair desk. It's got a tray that is wood with a cloth inset to pull out and it sort of fits around your waist. It will catch the tiny springs and gears that are dropped and the cloth will make it simple to pick them up. It dates from the 1930's.
There was a group of four mirrors above a beautiful fireplace that I loved. The frames really looked great against the burnt umber walls. The fireplace surround is also pretty terrific.
Thank you very much for reading Pigtown Design. I appreciate that you take time out of your day to stop by. Give yourself a hand!
