Did you know that....
*A giraffe’s neck has only 7 bones, they just happen to be longer than other mammals.
*Reticulated giraffes have large brown spots separated by cream lines and the males are darker than females. *Each giraffe has a unique pattern of spots just like human fingerprints.
Reticulated Silver is one of the coolest things ever! You take a piece of silver and heat it up glowing red and let it air cool up to 10 times. This is called depletion gilding and creates two different layers of metal on the inside and outside with different melting points. THEN you're able to heat it up and use the torch to warp and move the metal in the moon-like manner seen here on this cuff I made. #silver#reticulated#torch#jewellery#coppercuff#moon
A friendly reticulated🦒 in Namunyak, a community run conservancy in Northern Kenya. In the early 90s, the community (Samburu) got together and decided that since photographic tourism was bringing in more income than poaching, conservation became the name of the game. 🐘 have made a come back in a big way. Reticulated 🦒 and Grevy’s 🦓 are following suit. @sararacamp #conservancy#samburu#conservation#giraffe#reticulated#namunyak#kenya#safari#conservationjourney @wildphilanthropy
This lovely rounded Royal Worcester potpourri vase with lid dates from the late 19th century. Both beautiful and practical, it allows the scent of dried flowers and herbs to fill the room through holes in the cleverly designed lid. Apart from the lovely warm colour of the blush ivory, this unusually large potpourri vase has distinctive and charming Royal Worcester hand painted floral decoration and many gorgeous decorative details, like the pierced neck, the raised cameo decorations around the neck, and the moulded and gilded feet. I love the little raised and decorated floral panels on the lid and the elegant finial, particularly because the lids for these are so often missing or damaged. It's so wonderful and rare to have both the vase and lid in such good condition, and to be able to appreciate the full artistry and elegant proportions.
