Still Playing With the New Toys....
I dug out my supply of silk gauze and silk thread. I think that I am going to have to find some darker green, but otherwise, I have a pretty good selection.
The silk gauze that you see is some bargello that I started a while ago. Just trying out colors.
I am leaning more towards something floral. Who knows how it will end up?
Strangely enough, the color work is very nice. I have a feeling that there were two different people on the assembly line....One with gold paint and one with floral colors.
I am browsing through my reference books to see if I can spot any of the pieces in them. This may take a while and I imagine that the manufacturers didn't do them exactly like the original pieces. I would love to see if I can find any of them for real.
Very Chippendale like.
The reason I am looking is, I would like to find some with the original covering on the seats....I can only dream.
I need to check the Victoria and Albert Museum website for examples.
Spoiled??? No way....Well maybe a little.
Back to the books.
See you tomorrow.
