Silver and enamel souvenir spoons [gifted]

Dear All, was recently gifted these silver and enamel souvenir spoons by my son's violin teacher. Her great grandfather toured America and Europe in the 1930s (great postcard collection too) and picked these up. I particularly like the Egyptian revival gilt silver and enamel spoon inspired by Carter's recent activities. Marked at the top. Bw, Peter See More

Traite's des Paix [Peace Treaties] 1793-c1806

Hello All,Not sure if we can post about books on here, but I just came across a bound volume of separately printed, paginated, and dated (various paper types, water marks, type faces etc) Acts, Decrees, and Peace treaties between France and various countries dated from 1793-1806. Obviously, they were collected together and bound shortly after the final date. Some of the earliest are the Convention Period in France, then early Republic, right through to Napoleonic stuff. Much of great interest,…See More

Satinwood Sheraton corner cabinet c1820

Dear All,I have a very fine Sheraton satinwood corner cabinet, c1820. It is extremely untouched with great patina. However, I am trying to find out more information on what I have been calling a 'peacock eye' pattern on the cornice. Hopefully you can see what I mean from the photo. As you can see, it has Tigerwood cross banding, gilt wood etc. Could anyone direct me to any similar examples of this peacock eye decoration, and/or whether this is the correct term for it please? Many thanks. See More
