Bric-a-Brac is a term that most people will have heard of. It was originally a word derived from the French, in which it had the meaning of curiosities, oddities or second hand. Literally translated it even means flea market. When one speaks of ‘Bric-a-Brac’ it is often used for old objects that are not valuable or old enough to pass for genuine antiques. Instead of Bric-a-Brac one also speaks about semi-antiques. Bric-a-Brac items do not have to be perfect. The weathered appearance gives it it’s true character and appearance. Often seen at Brick-a-brac and most familiar is Enamel. This is a protective layer of molten glass on objects made of metal or ceramic in order to protect it, to isolate, or just simply used as decoration.
