The Curiosities of the Gothic Rose

If you’re ever near Placerville, California you must make a pit stop at the Gothic Rose Antiques & Curiosities boutique. This shop specializes in unique and macabre treasures and has a wonderfully curated collection of merchandise. Not to worry if you're nowhere near Placerville, can also peruse and purchase their one-of-a-kind goodies online, maybe you’ll even find a special gift for that friend who has everything. Here are a few of Mr. Peacock’s favorite pieces at the Gothic Rose…

These antique German doll heads look eerily festive in this bowl with moss and berries.

You know Mr. Peacock loves a good brooch and the Gothic Rose doesn’t disappoint. This coat of arms brooch would look amazing adorning a tuxedo.

As would this devine sterling silver baroque Satyr brooch.

If you like lions, this unusual lion brooch with black rhinestone eyes or…

...this lion crest brooch would also look sharp on any jacket.

This charming owl bookmark would make a lovely gift for the bookworm in your life. (I think this already sold, but I still had to show it because I like it so much!)

This owl wind spinner would look interesting hanging in any little nook in your home—watching over you.

Mr. Peacock loves this footed sugar bowl! It would be nice for holding all the little treasures piled on top of your dresser.

This display mannequin head looks like it’s right out of a 1930’s film.

These naughty Greek Cards would make an amusing stocking stuffer.

Who can’t resist a tattered top hat…

…or a unicorn! This 11" tall mystical beauty is made of bisque.

Take a peek at the Gothic Rose Antiques website here. Be patient, there is a lot of things to look at on the site and it can be overwhelming—but there is always some wonderful hidden pieces. Keep in mind these are one-of-a-kind treasures and may be already sold. You’ll need to telephone the Gothic Rose to verify if the item you’re interested in is still available at 530-295-0703 or email here. The Gothic Rose Antiques & Curiosities is located in historic downtown Placerville, California at 484 Main Street. Tell them Mr. Peacock sent you!

Gothic Rose, one of my personal favs! I can spend the better chunk of an hour browsing the website, and practically everything begs to be on my wish list. Look at that Satyr brooch... OH MY! Must have.
