Mini Art Treasures

A few more rediscovered treasures which have been in hiding for years .... since 1988. Collected while on an overseas trip I think it's about time they are put on display. The round plate was purchased from an outdoor bazaar in Israel; the miniature paintings on gold & silver leaf from San Remo Italy; the small round, yellow box from Florence; the rose veneer inlay from Sorrento; and the oval framed floral tapestry from a little craft shop in a town called Castiglione.

One of the nice things about rediscovering items like these is the reminiscing that comes with it..... oh to be able to head off overseas again..... markets, bazaars, cafes....... Well I'll dream a bit more later.
I think these would look great arranged together on a wall with a few other art treasures. I'll have to find just the right spot for them. In the meantime I'll be digging some more to see what else I've kept in hiding.

Ciao for now from Elena Perrotta
