The past two days in Provence have been non-stop shopping, up at 5:00 a.m., awake until 1:00 a.m., and running after antiques in between. And they say this is all glamour! It has been worth the effort though. We have been finding beautiful nineteenth century artwork and wonderful, unique small items.
A nineteenth century still life. Oil on wood in its original gold frame.
A very rare find—a nineteenth century tole painted wooden jardinière with zinc liner. This is tabletop size.
An unusual Black Forest piece. This is an antique photo album with a hand carved Black Forest lid and bronze clasps.
The women of Arles that Van Gogh so loved to paint.
The traditional French bullfight isn’t about killing the bull. It’s all about pulling the ribbon off the bull’s back!
…in the setting of the Roman amphitheater.
