This is a fun, but in some ways sad prompt for me. My husband and I have had antique collections for years, but when we downsized, we sold the majority of our pieces. The good news is that I have pictures of most of them and will share them with you today.
My FH is a Chemical enginee and worked his entire career for two major Oil Companies. It was a natural for him to start to collect Oil Company Memorabilia.
Try decorating your house with oil cans and signs ... not easy, but a challenge that was fun.
The Gas Globes were easy ... they looked awesome no matter where we put them :)
Clocks are always fun. I finally had to stop running them because they would all "dong" at the same time and the noise was deafening ... and if you happened to be talking on the phone when they did their thing, you would miss some possibly important information :)
These were produced by the Barnum & Baily Circus when Jumbo the elephant (the largest elephant in the world at the time) was brought to America from England in 1884.
I had a lot of Elephant powder boxes. These were two of my favorites. I don't have them anymore, but they are still accessible because I gave them to my DIL :)
If you haven't noticed, Elephants are my thing. It all started when my parents gave me a Dumbo at age one. After that my grandparents started bringing me elephants from places they traveled to. Before I knew, I was an elephant collector :)
