Horloge et candélabres



2011 April day 3 DSC_0312

Clock and candelabra


The antique stores scattered throughout Paris are full of treasures.  
Many of the items may be out of the reach of the traveler, 
or perhaps to large to carry home.  
However, one never knows when a "find" will be discovered.


This window was seen in one of the narrow streets of the Marais.
