  1. Wow this is stunning, perfect antique mood and infused lighting with your techniques. There’s a satiny feel to the scene and especially with the gorgeous sterling pieces.

    • These pieces are truly unique and hubby and I are having fun rediscovering the things in our home. So happy to share this with you. Although I can’t take full credit for the post-processing. This is a preset from Yellow Sky Actions. One click and voila !

  2. Beautiful still life. I love your use of light and dark. Yes I come from a time period that I know how or what these tools are for and how they are used. I am amazed you have access to a complete set and in such great condition.

    • It is amazing what you can find on ebay Charlie. We built a new master suite and my husband found this large set within a standing cabinet that he just had to have. It really is a special set and I showed only a small portion of it. Thanks for recognizing it and commenting.
