Beautiful antique tablecloth. French, white with red and blue borders and fringe trim.
Antique dish with lid, what appears to be in the form of a strawberry. Probably used for strawberry jam or preserves. Purchased in Europe. Estimate that it is made in Germany, pre 1910. Slight hairline crack in bottom of dish.
Sweet graniteware cup and plate. A pretty little girl with braids and bows and pretty red dress poses as if she is ready to dance.
This meerschaum pipe was purchased in Turkey approximately 35 years ago. It has never been used. The pipe has the form of what appears to be a Turkish man in a turban, with the carving of an ornate feather attachment on one side. The mouth piece has the appearance of amber, but I will assume it is a plastic like material. The case is hinged to open and closes with a fold over clasp.
Antique flow blue knife rests, beautifully decorated with ferns, dragonflies, butterflies, etc. Though I do not see a mark, I'm fairly positive that they are from the Sarreguemines faience. Not in perfect condition as seen in photo and as can be expected with use and age. Estimate age to be pre 1910. Set of 4. I am currently shopping in France.

French leather purse or holder possibly used to hold cards, photos, cigarettes, etc. The metal clasp opens the purse to show two pockets. The pocket on the left is embossed with possibly the name of the maker, followed by the location, PARIS. An ornate metal (silver?) monogram decorates the front corner.
Burlap sacks have become popular for designers and decorators. I recently found two at a German antique and flea market. One is German and has the Bayerisch design which I think reflects the Bavarian region and also a source for some great German beer with the same blue and white design. The other is Dutch, from The Netherlands and has a nautical design of an anchor with the B monogram included in the design...
