I could not resist these chalk ware pieces for my collection today. I was actually on my way out of the store when these jumped at me lol. My dining room is adorned in multiple chalk ware pieces. I just love these! 😍😍😍 there's a dealer in my town who has booths everywhere in just about every vintage store in my area...sometimes with 3-4 booths in one store. They are called "The Olive Branch." And I don't know how they do it lol that's a ton of work...but they do it with style!! They arrange everything beautifully. Their booths are gorgeous and they carry some neat stuff! I got these from their @goldsboroantiquemall booth today. Stop in and have a look at their other wares! ❤️❤️❤️
I wrote a blog post about some of my favorite antique store finds, and some other vintage treasures that I own. The link is in my bio! Go have a look.😄 (hint, this ring is included in the post. This is my favorite antique store find)
Title: Planisphaerium Coeleste.
Mapmaker: Georg Matthias Seutter (1678-1757)
Here is another celestial map, as you requested! 🌚 🌏
This is a magnificent double hemisphere celestial chart showing the northern and southern sky with the constellations in allegorical form based on the astronomer, Johannes Hevelius by Georg Matthias Seutter (1678-1757) who had founded his own firm in Augsburg, Germany, around 1707. A diagram in the upper left corner represents the earth in day and night, with quotations from Genesis.
The diagram at upper right shows the monthly orbit and illumination of the moon. The five diagrams along the bottom represent the monthly orbit, illumination of the moon, the planetary hypothesis of Tycho Brahe, Copernicus, Ptolemy, the annual orbit of the sun and the seasons. Hevelius made observations of sunspots, (1642 & 1645), charting of the lunar surface, discovered the Moon's libration in longitude, publishing his results in, 'Selenographia, sive Lunae descriptio' in 1647. He discovered four comets, in 1652, 1661, 1672 and 1677. These discoveries led to his thesis that such bodies revolve around the Sun in parabolic paths. He observes the great comet of December 1680 and named the constellation Sextans in memory of the loss of his instruments in a fire.
Comment below what you want as my next post. It can be country specific, world, mountains, rivers, anything!
Worked my booth (@harmoniousvintage) at #voloantiquemall yesterday and definitely bought way more than I sold 😂. My two favorite finds were these two “Foley” items (that’s my maiden name!). Decided I want to start a Foley collection. (And working in an antique mall is dangerous y’all 😆) #foley#antiquestorefinds#vintagekitchen
Went to an antique shop the other day and found a whole bin of postcards. All written on, most of them from a time where that was a super common form of long distance communication. So weird.. to hear from families and stories from years and years ago. Just simple hellos or updates on their lives. (This one is from 1951 ???) and wonder where are they now? I don't know why I found it so interesting but they were just like little pieces of life and history unfiltered. 💌 #antiquestorefinds
