Some Rather Lovely circa 1930s Lampshades Plus Other Bits!

 I have been busy listing some rather lovely antique and vintage pieces to KT Miniatures' website today.
Amongst some of the more rather special pieces now for sale are these circa 1930s celluloid lampshades, which are becoming ever more difficult to get hold of these days. Also, because they are made of celluloid, means they are quite fragile and many are so often found split or broken entirely. But am very pleased to say that both these....a green/white one plus a blue/white one, are in remarkably good condition. They each even have the metal conical fitment which fits on the top where the wire would feed through.
Then there are these wooden candlesticks with removable wooden candles....absolutely exquisite. It never ceases to amaze me how some of these weeny items actually survive the test of time in little hands!These lampshades and candlesticks can be found with lots of other new additions on the following page:


Also listed today is this quite unique wooden radiator...the likes of which I have never seen before, Yes, I have seen many a radiator made out of metal but wood....no! It's magnificent!

Then there is this much older handmade fretwork display cabinet, believed to originate from the early 1900s. It is rather lovely....the back flops down so that you can place your old china on the two shelves with ease. Just check out that antique green floral wallpaper inside!
This old trolley is rather splendid too....all metal..in fact am wondering if it is indeed copper? It is obviously quite old but don't have a clue to its origin.  Just imagine this laden with vintage food and china for "afternoon tea"!

All these and much more can be found on the following page:

Thanks Steinworks....yes, the trolley is rather nice isn't it? Not seen one quite like that before but it has certainly been well made...by a professional. Celia
