    Item J5162Item J5162
    Sewing & Fashion: Three examples of button art. Old, old cardboard displays showing full color images of children, a little girl, a boy dressed up like a clown and a drum major. The images were originally decorated dimensionally with buttons sewn through the cardboard. The little girl regains the buttons on her dress and on both shoes however there appears to originally have been one on her hat and another on the handle of the umbrella. The boy dressed as a clown appears to have all the original buttons intact. The drum major has the two buttons on the top of his hat but is missing the buttons on his coat and shoes and possibly another one from the hat. Still very nice vintage pieces. All 3 for $12.00


    J5162A
    Sewing & Fashion: Chantilly Lace Shawl. Chantilly Lace from either Chantilly or Bayeux, France is a fine example of continuous bobbin lace from the middle of the 19th century. Chantilly was a very formal lace and closely associated with French royalty, especially the Empress Eugenie. It was made at a time when large black shawls, veils, mantillas, fans, lappets and long ribbon-like ties were part of formal dress. This is a black-on-black shawl measuring 30" x 104" having a repeating pattern and central decorative area. The shawl has some minor damage, which can be expected with an item over 150 years old, but can be repaired with fine silk thread. $35.00
