I went to antique fair at Takaraduka Hotel.
That fair is very popular but I haven't visited that fair before.
I sometimes go to antique fairs but almost all of them are too big.
So, I get tired soon before I look at all shops.
The antique fair in Takaraduka was not so big.
The number of the shops is about 20.
However all of the shops have high quality goods.
First, I saw a Japanese antique shop.
There were no price cards.
I felt like I visited Sushi restaurant.
A shops clerk asked me which one I liked.
I pointed at a plate and said I liked that.
He said it was the most expensive one.
It was 3 million yen!!!
I cannot count the number of zeros.
I asked him some questions about the plate.
I wanted to know why the plate was too expensive.
After I listened to his explanation, I could understand a little.
But, of course, I didn’t buy it.
Afterwards I looked at other shops.
Another shop sold beautiful goods made with glass.
Some of them were really expensive but some of them were reasonable.
I found a cute………. Ummmm…… I don't know what it was.
But I really like it.
And another shop had a wonderful cup and saucer.
It was produced by Sèvres.
I can say Sèvres is the king of ceramic makers.
I don't have any words which I explain it.
The base color was blue.
The blue is a Sèvres color.
It is deep and no fogginess.
And a woman and an Angel were painted on the cup.
Those paintings were excellent.
I couldn’t see any brushstrokes.
I have not seen such a high quality cup so far.
Of course, there were many wonderful decorations on the cup and saucer.
I really wanted to get it.
I looked at it more than 10 minutes but I didn’t buy.
To buy it, I have to earn money and do not eat any thing.
By the way, we drank a cup of coffee and a glass of orange juice for free.
I haven’t been gotten that kind of service before at antique fairs.
I thought the antique fair which the hotel held was really good.
I bought one…..Ummm I don’t know what it is….
It is really cute, isn’t it??
