Hidden Discovery

25th April 2011





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.

    Love how you would use a discarded porcelain and turn into a sentimental accessory.

      @Fei-Yi – I’ve been an avid tea drinker since I was allowed to drink caffein at 14 for 15 years, tea keeps me sane without it I’ll go into insanity like your’d never seen before. Drinking water is a rarity for me.

    I really love those teacups. There aren’t enough tea houses in the world, in my opinion.

    The pub has secret rooms, rooms of the secret past (ok I’m weird). Nice find.

    Ah I so love how they’ve displayed the jewellery. I keep some of my earrings in the saucer of a teacup candle (I really need to get rid of the candle so I can use the cup too!).
