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.
