While out at an antique mall last week I stumbled across this (yes, stumbled - it was on the floor and I am not the most graceful of pickers even on my best day):
Lid off revealed the following which amused me no end (do you think the careful wording is a result of translation or the nature of how much more erudite we were many years ago):
Peel back the wax paper and you will find:
Perfectly stunning like the day they were made. So lovely!
There were two boxes. I almost didn't take both. As I set the second one back my inner junque magnet screamed, "Are you crazy? You will regret that..." So in the cart it went.
The only dilemma now is - do I split them up and sell by the piece or do I sell the box as is?
They have so much potential.
If you read my last post about buying American you will chuckle to note these were made in France. They are vintage which means I supported a local business and thus I continue to live my mantra, "Buy American. Buy Vintage."
