Old quilling

Salutare dragii mei dragi! Pentru azi ceva special! Sper sa va placa!
Cand am fost la Viena in vara asta am gasit un obiect gen iconita cu quilling vechi intr-un magazin de antichitati. Era 310 euro (cam mult pentru bugetul nostru). Asa ca i-am facut poze, am discutat cu doamna din magazin si apoi am plecat mai departe... Acum evident ca imi pare rau ca nu am luat-o.

Cred ca fasiile sun facute din alama sau din ceva metalic, dar clar arata ca si quillingul.

Hello my dear ones! For today something special! Hope you like it!
When I was in Vienna this summer I found this old work in an antiques shop. It was 310 euro (too much for our budget). So I took some pictures and moved on...

I believe the strips are made of copper but those old ornaments deffinitely look like quilling. Now I regret I didn`t bought this precious work...

Daca va uitati cu atentie se observa tot felul de forme quilling si se vede si tehnica beehive. Eu am fost impresionata. Sunt curioasa voua cum vi se pare!

If you look careful you`ll notice all kind of shapes, also the beehive technique. I`m curious what you think.

Inca sunt uimita de aceasta intamplare. Viena nu e un oras mic, si dintre toate magazinele de antichitati am nimerit fix acolo unde se afla aceasta mini-iconita cu quilling (nu cred ca imaginaea din centru e originala...). Ea toata imi pare ciudatica insa fasiile acelea pline de praf m-au cucerit!

I still don`t know what to believe about this situation. Vienna is a big city, between all the antiques shops I found exactly the one that had this little work with quilling... The entire work is quite strange but those dusty strips look deffinitely conquered me!

  6. Sa sti ca ar putea fi totusi hartie, cartonata si tratata special cu vopsea aurie, si mult lac, asa incat s-a intarit si mai ales trecerea timpului a ajutat si mai mult la metalizare.
