NVR vignette...

One of my favorite nooks in the shop
includes this wonderful collection of
NVR finds. The vintage osteology chart
just sold, so now I am trying to decide
what should take its place above that
functional little factory table (notice
the jute twine laced up the leg). On top,
an ariculated lamp clamps onto the corner,
a cloche collects a group of antique shoe forms,
and an abacus is ready to perform some arithmetic.
Below, a burlap covered trunk holds a vintage
file box and a boxed collection of correspondence
between Mr. Justice Holmes and Sir Frederick Pollock
(1874-1932). Linen curtains accented with
quilted chocolate velvet frame the scene.
