Friday Show and Tell – Italian Ceramic Pictures and Other Master Bath Treasures

Show and Tell
Show and Tell Friday is hosted by the very talented Kelli at There is No Place Like Home.

Continuing to celebrate the lifestyle of my lovely sister and her husband at their Gulf coast home in Florida, I will post about the master bath. The master bathroom suite has a separate shower stall, large tub, commode room, and custom organized walk-in closet. The entire area shows their love of beauty.
At the entrance to the walk-in closet the doors are framed by objects hung on the wall. Above is a print of an angel, below on the left is another angel picture and one of a pair of ceramic Italian pictures.

These Italian ceramic pictures always hung in our mother’s bedroom at her home in New York. These are vintage round framed picture painted on ceramic or porcelain.
The ceramic pictures are 6 inches in diameter, painted in muted pastels and bordered in gold. The ceramic pictures are mounted on dark velvet fabric. Curved glass protects the composition. The frames are 12. 1/4 inches in diameter, with decorative ornamentation including a row of gilt beads on the inner edge. The backs read "IMPORTED FROM ITALY"/ Custom Styled For/ Andrew Kolb - N.Y.C./ Style no. 130."

The picture on the left shows a couple in a landscape with classic ruins, accompanied by two dogs.
The picture on the right shows a couple in a landscape, with a basket is placed near the reclining lady. He stands and plays some sort of musical instrument.

In the tub area an oval wood mirror hangs on the wall near a large angel figurine. The angel is in memory of my brother-in-law’s mother.

An elegant chandilier illuminates the tub, while white wooden shutters give privacy.

In the commode room two rectangular mirrors add a sense of space. Above one mirror is a cherub plaque and below is a framed print.
Below this mirror is a basket with a floral display

The entire master bathroom is embellished with artwork including poems written by my sister’s husband over the years. She wrote them out, in delicate artistic settings and framed them. Above the beautifully framed print of a Pre-Raphaelite lady is one of his poems.
Another framed poem is above on of the Italian pictures.
