Gant d'un artisan



In the window of the artists who hand-paint the bone china, we saw this glove (gant) and purple glasses. The artisan-owner must have been out to déjeuner.

Wish that we had seen her at work.

Peut-être que cet artisan était parti à un rendez-vous. Il a laissé ses gants et outils pour que, si une petite Américaine passait par là, elle pourrait continuer son travail...
Qu'en penses-tu?

Those kinds of glasses are very famous in France, because of the advertising made by Adriana Karembeu!:)
i like the idea of a glove left behind...I can imagine a lot of stories behind!

Where else would you find such material but Paris?

Enjoy your day Genie! Rx

What a charming little still-life—one that you had the "eye" to see, and then share with us. Thanks, Genie!

Gorgeous! I'm always in awe of the painters of china/porcelain. In this case, I'm also in awe of her glasses. :) Just a few more days!

Nice capture. It's the little things that are most interesting and that we often overlook.

Now that's a find! I can't imagine doing any fine painting with that big glove on. Maybe it's for handling the fired pieces? Love the cute glasses!

It is just a simple table, a glove and a pair of glasses, but somehow they create a very photogenic scene when seen through your capable eyes.

Randy said...

This would make a nice subject for a painting.

Dianne said...

My! those glasses are quite fancy and in purple!!

You can make a point of returning during this trip.

That is a wonderful picture. The frame of the glasses tells that the owner is an artist.

Thank you for the visit and the nice comment.
