That term always intrigued me when I saw it in auction listings. Who was the original owner? And if it's 18th century I'm hooked. 18th century, baroque, rococco, sacque dresses, powdered wigs, patches, gambling at the casinos, snuff boxes, the shoes, the manners, tricorn hats, just fascinate me.
More and more I also wander off into other periods right up to and including the 1960s. I'm kind of vintage obsessed really!
Please feel free to leave your comments, I'd love to hear from you!
