Textiles....A special Provenance


Just thought I would share a few more of the lots which will be sold in Bristol on Tuesday 6th November.


Some of the trimmings and textiles have a special provenance, having come from Mary Bellis who was one of the most respected Antique Dealers in England from the 1950s to the 1980s.


These beautiful items have been stored away for many years, but it is now time for somebody else to own and love them.


As you may imagine, I have been in "Textile Heaven" sorting these into lots for the sale. Click here to view the Textiles section of the catalogue.
