of gypsies, pirates & kings {the hidden chamber}…

have you ever visited the hidden chamber?

it sounds so very harry potter-esque doesn’t it!?! i discovered this etsy trader not so long ago & i love everything about it: from its name to its wares…

it’s like stumbling upon your great grandmother’s jewellery box filled with all manner of trinkets & treasures: each a reminder of a time long since passed…

for me, it’s almost invariably the victoriana pieces that have captured both my eye & my imagination…

those crazy victorians… just looking at this collection of curios fills my head with fertile imaginings as to their origins & their owners… who would have worn them & where & when & why?

from a carved ivory brooch {no doubt a keepsake of a cherished vacation} to a gypsy portrait, vintage scrimshaw earrings & a stick pin which bears the hand of the king… there’s even a treasure box locket which silently stands sentry over a long-since faded portrait held within…

the hidden chamber is most definitely filled with hidden gems, each of which stand as testament to this vendor’s exquisite eye for detail {& pirate treasure}…
