More from Paris

Karl Edo wasn't the only one shopping in Paris. I bought quite a few pieces myself.
Here are some of them:



These incredible tiny, thin and exquisite coffee cups and bowl was made by Christine Voirin at Grain de Sable. Unfortunately she doesn't have a homepage.



I can't remember the name of the lady who made this vase, but she had a lot of ceramic, toys and roomboxes in 1:144 scale.
Can someone perhaps help me with her name?



This Christmas decoration was made by Veronique Bailleul.



And this funny cow decorated mug and plate was made by Emmanuelle Martinot and Neil Dyde at Paris Miniatures.



I think I had a thing for animals this weekend. These glass miniatures wasn't bought at the fair, but in a shop in the Passage Jouffroy, where there are several miniature shops.



Cocco managed to find something at SIMP for Action man's apartment as well. It's an original paper cut, cut with scissors by Engelhard Schmit and the money he earns from selling them he sends to help children living on the street.

Wow, I LOVE those little coffee cups and bowl, they look amazingly fine.

Thank you Norma, yes they are! I'm so afraid I might break them when I hold them, they are so delicate.
And I love the colours on them.

All of it is fabulous. The colors of the coffee cups exquisite! The paper cut out magnifique! CM

Rebecca said...

That's great that you bought some things as well as Karl Edo! (Probably just as well that none of the other dolls could go with you ;-) )
I love the coffee cups too - and the vase! I love turquoise - look forward to seeing where you put it. Those cow pottery pieces are so funny! I've seen real-life ones that are very similar. And the paper cut-out - someone actually cut that by hand? Amazing! I don't think I could do a full-sized one as well as he's done this tiny one!

Christine's china is the best ever but the paper cut....to die for. Now that you made a pic I can see it better and the details are INCREDIBLE ! great buyings! have a nice day, Rosanna

Pubdoll said...

¡Gracias a ti también Maria!

Pubdoll said...

Merci Carol! Je suis très heureux de mes achats:-)

Pubdoll said...

Thanks Rebecca, but as you have seen, some of the other dolls had their own transport:-) But I didn't see them at the fair. But I know Polly Line bought herself something as well :-)

If I hadn't seen it myself I never would have thought it was possible to make so tiny, yet detailed paper cuts!

Pubdoll said...

Rosanna, the cut-out is like with your cushions, it's hard to appreciate all the details at the first glance! You need a magnifying glass or a high resolution photo!

Nydelige ting! Likte spesielt godt kaffe settet og papirklippet. Reinsdyret med lys har jeg også, kjøpte det på messen i London. :-)
