Unfortunately that infant mortality rate was high in the late Georgian and early Victorian era and many times the causes death was unknown. The life of the child was sometimes commemorated in paintings of them in clouds representing heaven. These sentimental paintings are not easily found and I love them, so I have collected them over the years when I could find them and afford them. This one is a miniature painting of a little girl on porcelain in a gold frame with an open c-clasp on the rever...

The ends around the bonnet are stitched with fine ruffled lace and around the edge of the bonnet the is matching blue chenille. The interior lining is ivory silk that many times is gone by the time.

A lovely old treasure sent to me from France, it is a Napoleon III small missal book or sometimes referred to as a Book of Common Prayer or the Missals of Mary, it is a Devotional book that likely belonged to a young female years ago (mid-1800s).

Once opened, the book does not seem to have been read very much as the pages are tight but show li...

Really fabulous old German's children's toy, from the mid-1800s. Each block is wooden, the box too, with lithograph paper glued over each piece, and what we expect to find in lithography blocks, but what makes these blocks much, much rarer than what is normally found is that these are much earlier with lithograph print and hand painting over the lithograph parchment paper that is on the blocks and the accompanying sheets. These were designed to help the child figure out how to lay the pieces ou...

This sweet pin has the word BEBE separated by a hand painted enamel plaque in the center from the famous Raphael painting of a cherub in the clowns. It is stamped in the back A835 for a higher silver content than the standard 800 European grade sterling. At the time of this listing I have two of these, the painting is of the same subject but looks different because each was hand painted then added to the silver when it was made. It has the French trombone clasp in the back and closes and locks ...

Here is a fabulous little naughty treasure! A French couple in-love (hopefully!) in a beautiful setting of flowers and garlands and marble urns with statues, you see the French maiden’s bosom exposed, ohhh! Yes indeed, her lover has got her in his arms as he whispers sweet things to her and we can see that with her arm raised high in the air she is allowing him to disrobe her, so obviously she is a very willing participant! (And it looks like the female statue bust on the side is looking on in...

Divine set of silver spoons made in France, these ornately designed spoons have a little angel's face at the top of each spoon with scrolls and flowers abounding his cute little face! The spoons are made of silver and hallmarked on the spoon itself, which has a gold wash on it. On one side the initials SK and on the other side the boars head. It is typical of French marked silver for the stamps to be apart from each other, and the marks are very small and located on the front of the spoon where ...

Lovely bright regal foil metallic colors, exquisitely and expertly painted in enamels, you see the photos taken with and without the flash. Made in France in about 1890, in very good antique condition without any cracks, breaks or repairs. The painting itself measures about 3" x 4", set onto red velvet and then put into this more contemporary 'old world' style wooden frame probably from 1950s, that is a nice compliment to the painting. Cute scene of a bar winch holding a jug of wine being "man...
