Antiquaire rue des Etats Généraux I

A little while back, I took you to Le Facteur Cheval antiques in Chantiers neighbourhood (see also here and here). Almost opposite is this shop which you'll be seeing for the next couple of days! I love that bust on the first floor.

Je vous emmenais au Facteur Cheval il y a quelques temps (v. aussi ici et ici). Presque en face se trouve cet antiquaire que vous allez voir pendant quelques jours. J'adore ce buste à l'étage...

This will be fun. I love the female bust on the second floor and I can see some other treasures on the ground floor. Bring it on, Ciel.

Settling in back home now. Thanks for joining us for a lovely dinner in Paris. The storefront here has typical charm. I'm interested to see what you will do about posting when you are out and about.

I like so much this kind of store! Also it has a beautiful "blue"detail in its facade.

If that's a shop that makes and sells fire place 'mantles' Ciel, then what an inventive and brilliant shopfront!

Oui on voit parfois ces vitrines sur 2 niveaux... Des fois aussi il y a des boutiques sans vitrine.
Tu as réservé la cheminée de ville ? La notre y ressemble, sans le médaillon ; elle est en grés rose et vient de la loge de notre jardin de famille.

Buste-tête coupée- Versailles- j'ai parfois des associations d'idées bizarres...

I am starting to love this neighborhood!

The bust is the first thing I noticed! [Why am I not surprised you were the only "feet" enthusiast? I would rarely turn down the chance to try something someone else swears tasted delicious in a not weird way.]

Diane AZ said...

Oh yes, I'd love to see more of this shop!

VP said...

Une cheminee dans une cheminee! L'endroit m'a l'air impressionnant!

The shades of blue and tan are so restful to my eyes. You shot this from an interesting angle.

Love the great woodwork and the bust is like a ship's figurehead. How cool!
