Soldered Vintage Coral Bottles

These are a couple of reproduction bottles with beautiful etched flowers that I had purchased some time ago. 
The corals were collected from Milton and Kingston when I accompanied my husband on some of his extended jobs away from home. I very seldom come across vintage seashells and corals and when I do I'm thrilled to find such treasures. They acquire such a lovely patina with age and of course they in turn have been fortunate to have been rediscovered, obtaining another life; hopefully for a very long one. 

I've been romancing the sea forever; what can you expect from a gal who was born by the sea. When you glance towards that twinkle in the sun and see the art that the sea has created, you suddenly want to go there in that beautiful tranquil seashore, collecting shells washed upon the glittering sand and then while the day away dreaming. Maybe that's why I have such a collection of natural art from the ocean and from the lovely deep wood surrounding my home; they are my constant companions who lend a hand in my creations.

 Hope you like them.
