Well embossed pendant, this has a bearded gentleman in profile with the notation Quod Bonum Felix Faustunque Sit with a sort of sunburst edting. The gold toned medal has no makers mark or particular country of ownership but was probably a decorative accessory made for the US or a tourist momento of a trip.
This couple of children are dressed up for a wedding both wearing light green hats and white clothing trimmed in gold. Behind the figures stands a pineapple urn the symbol of hospitality for a new home. The back is undecorated and was meant to be placed against a fireplace wall. The late Victorian appeal is undeniable and when one sees the happy faces of the couple, they almost want to wish them a happy wedding and life together.
A thin purse with white beads all over the front side in a pattern shown in the photo the effect is one of cool elegance. This would be great for a special retro evening out. The condition of the beading is excellent and the evening bag is certainly one that a Flapper would have loved.

A pretty little girl dressed in a blue trimmed outfit stands beside a match holder. Originally designed to be placed on a mantle by a hearth, this charming Victorian piece has a blue banded top of the match holder and the child is wearing a pink hat and shoes. There is a blue band that is shaded around the base. Minor slivers around the base and the no marking whatsoever. This piece is 100 plus years of age, and has a lot of appeal. The girls hair is very detailed in the back and the edge of her blue trim has pink trim hanging around the base of her dress.

Christmas comes and goes, but seasonal collectors love items with holly and berries. This nostalgic creamer with mild crazing has green colors and red berries. The antique appearance of this piece makes one think of 1930s but I am not 100% sure of the age but suspect that it has a good 60-70 years of age. The back side has two berries on a single sprig branch but no holly leaves.
