Miniatures To Treasure

Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying some lovely sunny weather this weekend.

Here are some more curios from Love Buttons HQ.

This vintage wooden set of miniature kitchen articles comprises: a rolling pin, pail, chopping board and scoop. The set was purchased in Yugoslavia in the 1980s. Each piece has one (two in the pail) holes drilled so that they could be used as charms, or added to jewellery or keyrings. This set costs £2.50.

This charming, stylized donkey figure is carved in a translucent white, marbled quartz. The item was purchased in a gift shop in Newton Stewart, Scotland 30+ years ago.
The donkey stands 45mm (1 3/4") high (measuring hoof to tip of ears); and 45mm (1 3/4") in length. It costs £2.95.

Last, but not least, are these eight miniature conference pears, handmade by me 25+ years back. If memory serves (!) they are made from self-hardening clay, painted and varnished. The 'stalks' are made from little pieces of wire. The basket is handmade from plaited and sewn raffia. This set costs £5.00. Miniature citrus fruit and apples are also available.
