A Little Bit of What's Available at Dairy House This Week ...
The photos have got the better of me, have a mind of their own and have chosen where they, themselves, would like to be within this post. That doesn't have much bearing on the views of the management, but I'll just go along with what's here in the order in which it comes. It'll be good exercise - ground floor, first floor, cheese room, first floor, ground floor and so on. All those stairs - I'll be so fit!!
So first off is this gorgeous little teaset. Not sure of its origins, but it's price tag won't break the bank. It's under £20.
A painted marriage chest like the one above was on one of the antiques shows one afternoon last week. Not sure which one, but I caught sight of it and realised it was very similar to this one.
The picture below would make a good Valentine's gift perhaps.
Two photos from the first floor - I love round tables - and a mirror encased in antique embroidery work.
I love the 3 wonderful paper panels tucked away on the ground floor. This is just a small portion of one of the panels. They are each about 2½ feet wide and at least 6 ft tall. If only our ceilings were high enough and our rooms large enough to hang these ... but they're not!
French Toile screen and an ostrich feather fan.
Painted canework and upholstered chair with open arms, and matching stool.
A selection of paintings and prints.
Rugs and a few choice small furniture items.
That's it for now, but all these items are current stock in case there is a "must have".
Five miles S of the A303 and 3 miles N of Shaftesbury. Turn off the A350 (Shaftesbury-Warminster road) at the sign to Semley Industrial Estate, and we're about 300 yards along the road. Don't follow the other sign to Semley as you'll end up in the village and may get lost!
