There seem to be a lot of vintage-antique related posts in the past week and there more to come, you’re more than welcome to escape to an emergency fire exit >>>
You may have noticed I haven’t been posting about my finds on press days, I feel that there’s enough online coverage by bloggers whose have recently attended so as for me I’m just a lazy blogger. I broke my laziness spell when I attended Sagen Jewellery press day at the Soho’s Secret Tea Room above Coach and Horse’s pub, the very same pub where Jen of The Style Crusader had her farewell drinks I had absolutely no idea there were vintage tea rooms upstairs. There was this sense of post-war atmospheric mood when I entered the room, there’s antique furnishing, old paintings on the wall and a sound of static but clear classic jazz music from a vintage vinyl record player. In the middle of the room is a dinning table laid out with old porcelain plates, cups, pots and cake stands covered with Sagen Jewellery – earrings, necklaces, bracelets made from discarded china and porcelain mounted onto silver. Each of the piece of fragment reveals some emotional link they form with the memory of warmth with shared family meals, ‘They remind me of Sunday dinners at my Grandmother’s house’. If I were to have my heavy stained porcelain tea cup made into a necklace piece for my mother’s birthday, the piece would remind her daughter is a tea addict.
