Hand painted personage enclosed in a gold metal locket with a glass top.
One of a kind portrait, use to be given to a loved one as a memory keepsake. What makes this even more charming is often a portrait depicts a young woman or man of wealth (it was costly to have ones portrait done, let alone a miniature) Though this miniature is of a common young woman, one of no title it is assumed by her attire.
45 Euros ($55) includes international postage and tax.
French Brocante Opera Glasses,
a pair of well used opera glasses.
Well used and yet sold at the brocante. Kind of sad isn't it?
The worn part (last photo) shows where your thumbs would rest if you used them.
Can you imagine how many operas you would have to go to to wear off the enamel painting?
Charming in a case that isn't the right case. Picked up by mistake??
Lovely history you cannot buy at Target or TJ Maxx, therefore the cost...
