Scavenger Aesthetic Give-Away! Edith Cockroft Signed Cup & Saucer. October 2017 (Click
I am actually going to save this entry as a draft and I am going to walk down the street to one of my favorite sources Aumand's Junk-Tiques at 4 Atkinson Street in Bellows Falls, VT to see if I might find something worthy of you.
It's 1:59 PM on Tuesday October 24th. I'll be back soon!
Ok...It's 3:38 and I'm back. Aumand's wasn't open today, so I headed downtown to the SEVCA Good Buy Thrift Shop on this moody , windy, leaf swirling autumn day and I found you a real bona fide treasure:
A somewhat rare tea cup and saucer by American artist Edith Cockcroft with this delightful and apropos leaf design. Photographed here on my wood pile.
