French crown buttons. These are not military buttons. Instead they are eighteen and nineteen centtury buttons with crowns designs, made by the aristocrat for their own personal use and for their hired help's clothing.
The buttons were design using their own crowns. The buttons were not sold, nor could they be used by any other family or organization. The buttons were privately owned, and only a few were made for each family.
They are rare.
French metal wire glass holder. 1900. Used for carrying glasses out to the picnic table, and to dry on the counter after washing. It can be used as a portable vase, put jars in the slots, fill the jars with flowers. Darling as well on ones bathroom counter to hold toothpaste, tooth brushes, etc.
French antique crown with rhinestones, made for the top of a church statue. Hard to find and very sought after. A few of the rhinestones are missing, but it does not distract from its beauty or form, very decorative.
Large enough for an adult to wear, especially can if you want to be a royal or act in a play.
I have several of these water glasses and their carrying case. They were used for drinking water at the natural springs. Each one is slightly different, some are from Capvern, others from Vichy etc. etc.
Though each one is of the same basket design with leather strap and glass.
The glasses and cases varying from 1880 to 1910.SOLD
