Beady eyed bird looking for collectables and design stuff
Today on our way home from a long weekend in Leeds we stopped off at Hemswell Antiques Centre, somewhere outside of Lincoln, as we travelled home. (That somewhere is in fact Hemswell – ex site of an RAF base).
Maybe it’s the long Easter weekend, the fact that it was sunny despite being blinking freezing, or the country air, but somehow I managed to walk around and pick out nearly every yellow thing I could find!
Below is a selection of the best bits I could find, I hope you enjoy them – Happy Easter!
I’m not sure if this is my favourite piece of the day, or if it’s one of the pieces below, but this chrome and glass cocktail set with an enamelled cockerel design in yellow seems like the perfect Easter antiques piece.
Two mid-century yellow glass vases with a ton of other mid-century coloured glass that really took my eye.
Ok ok, so this is my favourite piece of the whole day. I’m sad I had to leave it behind, but at £120 I didnt have much choice. Look at the amazing shape and the solidity of the colour. For now I’m going to keep telling myself that if I owned this I would have to get rid of all of my other stuff so that it could take pride of place – I dont want to do that – so it will have to find another home.
Last but by no means least is this amazing victorian coloured vase with pink and yellow, how gorgeous it is in the sunlight – what a stunner.
