Back in the heart of the West End the Hillhead area is a good spot for antiques with a number of very interesting and inviting establishments. Have a walk around Otago Street and Park Road and you can take in a number of different shops within a small area. Both “All Our Yesterdays”, 6 Park Road and Lansdowne Antiques, 10 Park Road are worth a visit. Otago Street, which is very nearby, has Authentics at No. 12 which has really lovely old pieces. I was thrilled with a glass lampshade I bought there – French and fantastic and most unusual. Right next door to Authentics you will find Retro, which apart from a suberb range of period clothing has some nice bits and bobs – I love their linen and bed quilts.
thank you for this opportunity. A good friend, who is both an artist and a shop keeper, took as a trade a very unusual glass lampshade. Amberina glass, no red glass. but venetian diamond pattern. painted red inside. But the most unusual aspect is the metallic trim, a flower and vine pattern the goes around the entire shade. At on place a very large flower is extruded and into the middle a large flower shaped piece of metal was set into it. The use of the word extruded is because the metal looks almost like frosting leaves on a cake. thick, rippled and tipped. As I said most unusual. If you are inclined to respond I will be happy to send you a picture. thank you,
