gorgeous shoes indeed
This is eclecticism at its finest! The above is a mix of Imari Japanese porcelain (from the 17th and 18th century) and European19th century vessels. These pieces and much more on exhibit at Cafe Papparayray (Fukuoka, Japan) and sourced by Cocteau Antiques & Atleir. Cocteau specializes in 19th century European ware. He (or she) goes to Paris and South of France a couple of times to find.
I wish I could be there in person to grab a bite and soak in the collection!
Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of the snake afterall…
