Clockwise from top right -
pair of candle holders mounted on my wall, handles of salad servers from my mother-in-law, the basket weave of my grandmother's sewing basket, ribbon spool from old manual Imperial typewriter (I learnt to type on one of these at school), detail from a kerosene lamp, an iron stand, my grandmother's silk iron, keys from the Imperial typewriter, and in the centre my grandmother's silver thimble. The thimble dates from the late 1800 - early 1900s. The detail is exquisite - I treasure it.
If you wonder about the coppery tones on some of the objects, these photos were taken in low light so I upped the ISO so I could hand hold, ans this was the result! I think the colouring suited the age of the objects.
and the handle of a silver serving spoon
