|This was my first Specimen Dome ,I bought it in St.Louis, from an Importer , it is from England.|
|The one in the middle I bought at an antique mall in Columbia, Mo.The pair I got as a surprise. A custom at my antique shop in St.Louis had them and no longer wanted them. Hiss loss, my luck!|
|This Rose is made of China.|
|Some rare and exotic bird,from England.|
|These three live on the book case in my second floor Library.|
|Library wallpaper with birds.|
There has been a revived interest in Domes these days. The garden cloutch that everyone is decorating with is a very simular item. I see lots of magazine articles where they put bird nests and other things under them. A lot of companys are also reproducing the glass domes with wooden bases. One in particular is Anthropology. Arhus Furniture has them in there show rooms as well. So I guess what goes around, comes back around,
sooner or latter.
HEADS UP!!! I just got a call from the editor at VICTORIAN HOMES magazine and the issue with my house is coming out at the end of April. It will be on the news stands then. It is the May, June issue. I have several copies coming and if you have trouble finding one, just email and I can send you a copy. I am so excited. I hope I am not disappointed.
