They are very detailed examples of the Spider—model coupes, with lights and grills and steering wheels. Unworkable tires that do not turn and doors that do not open. Massive and a good weight on both of them.
The bodies are completely made of wood which I believe to be one piece of wood each. A beautiful hard wood sort. Completely hand carved with love and care. To unpack this will be pure joy, I know because I at one time unpacked it too :)

Very hard to come by Berber Kabyle Box Bracelet
Handcrafted vintage Berber Kabyle box bracelet crafted in nickel silver in traditional filigree of North Africa.
You also find these in red and green enamels and set with red beads. Berber women traditionally stored their jewelry and personal effects in these combination bracelets and jewel boxes. Due to their nomadic lifestyle, they would tie the jewel box on to their clothing, this would ensure it was safe and secure.
The box measures 2.00"-inches high x 2.50"-inches in diameter.
The bracelet only measures 1.50"-inches high x 2.50"-inches inner diameter.
Last photo is another example.

Vintage Morocco Moroccan Blue Cobalt Glass Rose Water, Perfume Bottle with metal overlay. It has a long metal top spout that unscrews (I haven’t been able to open it) so the bottle can be filled to pour the perfume or rose water into this little luxe bottle.
Measures: 30.00 inches x 3.00 inches approx.

Handcrafted Moroccan glass perfume bottle with raised embossed metal over blue glass.
The pressed glass bottles in Art Deco, Art Nouveau style are rectangular and oval shape and hand decorated with embossed metal silvered overlay.
Handcrafted in Marrakech, Morocco by skilled artisans that used recycle perfume bottles and add the metal overlay, each perfume bottle is unique and one of a kind.
For a very long time until today, Moroccans have used perfume bottles as receptacles for rose water or essential oils that purified, toned up and calmed them down. These hand-made bottles, although not massively produced, come in a variety of shapes and colors.
They are beautifully made of ceramic, glass or resin, and are decorated mostly with crafted metal or silver (filigree). The colors used for such bottles are mainly red, yellow, blue, and green. As to the glass ones, the ideal color for them, set to protect the perfume within against ultra-violets, is blue. The bottles can also be used for interior fragrances that will fill the house with exquisite aromas for many days. Even empty, these bottles can be used as art objects for home decoration.
These lovely 19th century Delft tiles with sailing boats, castles, windmills, and winter scenes depict typical Dutch landscapes.
These tiles are reclaimed tiles from above a 18th century fireplace. Although the tiles are not as old and were placed later they are beautiful Victorian era tiles that having been above a fireplace have beautiful crackling within the ceramic and some discoloring from the heat.
None of the tiles are cracked and were removed with great professionalism. They have also been cleaned. They all have the Delft mark and a number but as you can imagine some of these markings have all but disappeared due to the placing and removal and age of the tiles.
They all measure: 6.00 inches x 6.00 inches.

This is a complete handmade dolls wardrobe closet including 100% all handmade clothes sewed and knitted made in the early 1900’s.
EVERYTHING is original and HANDMADE except the shoes and umbrella. This beautiful vintage piece was obtained by us from an estate clearance from original owner (83 years). She told the story of her husband who made the wardrobe and herself making all the clothing items.

It measures a large:
23.50 inches high, 16.50 inches wide and 7.50 inches deep. (60cm x 42cm x 19cm).
This approximately 7" fabric cloth doll is an early handmade (possibly Italy or Spain region or Austria) circa 1860 to 1920. Her facial features have been painted in a simplistic manner and
contrast with her brown hair that I believe is real human hair.
She is wearing a floral dress with petticoat, pantaloons and stockings. Her shoes matches the dress using the same fabric. She is holding a wicker basket with oranges and had a silk shawl around her shoulders. She is also adorned with pearl chain and earrings. She is Well-made and can be mounted on a stand.
She’s beautiful and unique and perfect in every way. A good collection for a doll house or a doll collection.

Worth every inch for her rarity and the wonderful Beatrix Potter animal stories.
A RARE, very fine Beatrix Potter 1909 character called Mrs Tittlemouse, who first appeared in the book “ The tale of the Flopsy Bunnies”. A beautiful detailed fine bronze miniature from the first part of the 20th century. She measures 3.5 inches high and is absolutely perfect in every way.
What a wonderful gift for any child or child’s room.
Mrs. Tittlemouse is a woodmouse who lives in a "funny house" of long passages and storerooms beneath a hedge. Her efforts to keep her dwelling tidy are thwarted by insect and arachnid intruders who create all sorts of messes about the place: a lost beetle leaves dirty footprints in a passage and a spider inquiring after Miss Muffet leaves bits of cobweb here and there. Her toad neighbour Mr. Jackson lets himself into her parlour, stays for dinner, and searches her storerooms for honey but leaves a mess behind. Poor Mrs. Tittlemouse wonders if her home will ever be tidy again, but after a good night's sleep, she gives her house a fortnight's spring cleaning, polishes her little tin spoons, and holds a party for her friends.
Mark of Kleinwort & Peerless, London, Late 19th Century See photos for Hallmarks.
Note the exquisitely rendered embossed hand-engraved design. The detailing is very crisp. The knife blade has very minor, superficial surface marks consistent with flatware of its age that’s had minimal use.
The silver finishes are bright and shiny, in excellent condition, with little to no hint of wear or loss of the silver-plating. No damage, cracks or chips to the handles. The spoon appears to have been rarely used. We are uncertain of the material used to make the handles but believe it to be of a composite.
This antique set can be used and enjoyed for a long time or as a display in your collection, and looks fantastic considering that it's approximately 135 years old.
