There is a romantic shabby appeal to this quiet piece of assemblage art, with it's antique buttons and inky notes. Time has passed and the lives of long-gone people are tucked up secretly in the intimate and everyday trinkets left behind. Who wore the wedding dress? Who dirtied the buttons? Did Lottie meet Mary after all, or go to Annie's? Only the secret knows.

A glass-front black wooden box showcases a collage of vintage, antique and found objects including buttons, millinery flowers, postcard paper with original handwriting, fabric from an Edwardian wedding gown and wallpaper salvaged from a demolished cottage.

A vintage shoelace on carpet tacks provides a hanging system, the back is collaged in paper scrap and contains an inventory of the contents.

Signed by the artist (that's me!) and measures 5 by 5 by 1 inches.

Due to the delicate nature of the piece, it will be securely packaged and shipped with insurance, so that it may be tracked in it's journey. Unfortunately that's an expensive business, hence the shipping!
