In the past people had messaged me on if I would post pictures of some of my vintage items. I am not very familiar with this digital camera so this is the best I could do; I have other more arcane items as well. Here are a few including the two Atelier Versace ties I had mentioned:
1930s Carl Zeiss binoculars, 1956 Alpa camera, and a 1940s C.H.Meylan 18kt wristwatch, 16mm x 24mm on brown lizard strap.

Love that camera!! I have a 1952 Revere, 8MM movie camera, that still works . . . what fun, to show home movies! The sound this contraption makes, the strobes of light as it fires up . . . great fun! Gorgeous taupe colored metal, too. My father paid a good sum for it, when my sister was born.

Indeed, the Emperor Qianlong. Gianni Versace also had several chairs upholstered in that design which were sold at the Sotheby's auction of his estate.

The "Asian Art In London" is an annual Asian art fair of dealers and auctions similar to the Armory Show in New York although entirely focused on Asian items.

I'll see if I can find some more items to post.

I am most fond of this item. How large are either of the lighters? I presume too big to comfortably fit into a pocket?
