The 3rd treasure I spied in the box at the auction was this neatly worked Russia icon-like embroidery on a cloth hemmed at one end and torn at the other.
The 4th treasure was this Chinese silk jacket which is reversible.
It has lots of lovely details like these hand-made frog closures.
It needed a gentle wash before it could be worn so it was lowered into a warm bath with Orvus paste.
I was a little concerned the colours might run so I added a couple of Colour Catcher sheets to the bath.
Wouldn't you know it - the red was the fugitive, but surprisingly little excess dye came out.
The jacket is now lying on a towel in the boiler room drying.
It sounds as though this jacket is at a spa.
I'll show you pictures of its new owner wearing it, once I have delivered it
