A beaded crystal chandelier with ceramic roses is the focal point of this window at Liberty & Co., London. The eclectic table setting features seashells and coral scattered amongst a silver tea service and porcelain dishes. A bisque doll's head fills a lotus bowl, while an original handblocked Japanese print circa 1895 tops a framed sketch.
This window at Liberty & Co. is decorated in 1940s style, with a Veronica Lake look-alike mannequin wearing a chiffon evening gown. A feathered headdress, beaded gowns, shoes, evening bags and crystal perfume bottles add to the glamourous ambience. Much of the goodies are tucked away in an antique vitrine lined with silk moire.
I don't know many men with the confidence to pull off a silver sequined scarf wrapped around their neck - or give a gift tied with a man's silk cravat, satin ribbon, a tassle and antlers sprayed gold. Do you?
