I've already held up my hands - I'm a collector, the trouble is that I like so many things!
I have a small collection of Cloisonné items as shown below. Most are from charity shops, though they are few and far between - it has taken me about six or seven years to seek out these little beauties.
The latest one is actually imperfect..it's the little elephant with only one ear! I saw it, looking very lonesome on the shelf in the shop priced at £2, so I decided to give the poor soul a home. I know the ladies who work in the shop and happened to comment at the till that 'Only I would buy a one eared elephant' - this started a search in the sorting room and in the shop for the missing ear amidst much hilarity. Needless to say they didn't find it but they were good enough to reduce the price to £1.50
And here he is.....
But this side you have to speak up!
Hope you've enjoyed my madness.....please visit again.
