~ more CBG antiques

Continuing with the never-ending posts from the Chicago series, here are a few more vignettes from some of my favorite booths ~ absolutely beautiful pieces!
The most beautiful collection of copper with the shiniest shine you've ever laid eyes on.

Super charming majolica pieces...



Staffordshire

Tartanware


Palissy



More lovely arrangements...

I thought this window (I think that's what it is) was about the prettiest thing I'd ever seen. Wouldn't it make an amazing coffee table?


A pair of french statues. When I saw them, I almost fainted. They are that gorgeous.

Notice the red sticker... sold. Unfortunately, not to me.

Still, more to come.

Wow, you have highlighted some "to die for" treasures here. Those copper jelly moulds in the first pic go for an absolute fortune these days. What must have been an everyday item in the Victorian kitchen. I wonder what they would think of it all now?
Thanks for the lovely pictures, they really do speak a thousand words!

So much beauty...love all that copper. Think you need to consider an apt. in Chicago for your "investigative reporting" haha!

A fabulous collection, especially the majolica.

Oh i have a lust for copper pots and moulds that cannot be quenched.

The name of your blog made me smile like the Cheshire cat.

I have wanted a tartanware collection for as long as I can remember...it's very difficult to find and when you do find it you have to decide if you want to buy that or a round trip ticket to someplace pretty nice. The statues are amazing, wouldn't that have been fun to bring home?
