    Comment

    This fantastic bag is in great condition considering its age. There are some small variations in the colour and texture of the leather, some tiny flecks of enamel missing in a few spots on the metal bar, and a few small black "age" marks here and there.  No strong odours (other than some conditioner to feed the leather. All in all, a great doctor's or overnight bag.

    Comment

    The opera glasses are in great condition considering age with the following minor blemishes - small amount of tarnish to brass and minor scratches. While, the original patina remains on the frame, this can be polished if desired. The carrying case has had some use, missing internal lining in lid. All in all, in great condition considering the age of this piece. Price has been adjusted to reflect these minor imperfections.

    This beautiful Palais Royal creation is in excellent condition apart from a small dent to one of the scent bottle lids - not very noticeable. The glass bottles are free from chips or cracks and each has its own glass stopper. The lids are all hinged correctly and close properly. The carriage and goats are securely attached to the base.

    Comment

    This amazing piece is in excellent condition with minimal surface wear. At the turn of last century, the snake was the emblem of eternal love, as well as a symbol of immortality and healing. Later, during the 1910-1920s the serpent was also used to represent passion and desire. This bracelet is not only a representation of these sentiments but also a beautiful and eye-catching work of art in its own right.
