Hunting for antiques in Portobello Road

Decided to take advantage of some decent weather today by venturing out to the antiques market in Portobello Road. Lots of really interesting items (like a bible from 1599) but we came away with an antique mantel clock (art deco style – think Hercules Poirot – with a rich Westminster chime) and a very distinctive but classically-shaped small lead glass chandelier.

Had to buy a special suitcase to get them back safely on the plane, but absolutely worth it.
