What yo looking at?

Yes, what indeed are we looking at……………………? Well if we pan back a little, you’ll see that we are feasting our eyes on some amazing etched glass doors that depicts a lovely forest scene with everyone’s favourite mid century animal – deer! And not just one, but 3! Buckincluded!

Full Scene!

I’d dare to have a guess and say that they didn’t quite match the new style that the renovators in question had in mind for their 1950/60’s home so out they came, and luckily for some, straight into my arms!

Doors and shower screens seem to be the most common areas┬áto find these etched glass images, ranging from mermaids to bushmen, under water fish to ships however I’ve rarely seen┬ásuch a large scene stretched across 2 doors and its 2 sidelights.

With no active plans for them at this stage, I think I’ll just store them until I find a use, or alternatively, until someone comes across this post, falls in love and wants them for their own home restoration! If thats you, contact me here.
