A sweet little souvenir for a lad...

This is such a sweet set of souvenirs - a glazed-top box of a young French lad's first communion: a large silk bow for his sleeve, a pair of white gloves, and a white bow tie. There are even two little Mother-of-Pearl buttons, probably cut off his shirt by a doting Mama or Grandmere.

To see more photos and information, clic here for my Ebay listing.


  1. How lovely. What beautiful work on the bow ends. Hope all is well with you

  2. Such a piece of social history- I love it! Jane xx
