TUESDAY TREASURES

It's time for Tuesday Treasures over at Melody's. Today I have chosen a pair of white doves which belonged to my Grandma, I have many things which belonged to my Grandparents which I will share in future posts on Tuesday Treasures. I love these little birds, they have gorgeous red eyes, I'm not sure what they are made of but it feels rough like sand, they were quite dusty when they were given to me and I had to clean them with a tooth brush as they are intricately carved. Is there anybody out there who has seen anything like this or knows what they are made out of ? I also have a pair of owls made of the same type of product.

Cheers
Kaylee

  2. They are really lovely. I wonder how old they are? I'm looking forward to hearing if anyone knows anything about them.

  9. Oh, these doves bring back so many memories.
    My Nan had a pair of these too and I'm pretty sure she had the owls as well.
    She used to work at DJ's and I thought they came from there. The best thing about the ones Nan had was they were covered with this glitter sort of stuff that used to change colour with the heat and cool. I was fascinated as a child.
    All of that glitter is gone - probably from all of us kids handling them so much. At least Nan would allow us to do that :-)
    Love your treasures.
