I purchased a wonderful trunk filled with 1920s jewellery supply stock from an estate sale in Lyon. This trunk was originally found in the storeroom of a 'mercerie' boutique which closed in the 1960s. I believe these were created by celebrated Parisian company Framex.
This listing is for a a genuine 1920s jewellery element, unused and beautiful with a wonderful textured surface which would look even more beautiful once enamelled or plated and insert with crystal chatons.
Holes for insertion of Crystal chaton.
This piece would have been designed for enameling or silver/gold plating. 5.5.cm by 5.5cm
For items less than 3cm in depth, I ship via 'International Recommendé' which is registered mail.
For items larger than 3cm, they will shipped via Colissimo.
I have chosen to include tracking and insurance in the cost as sometimes orders go astray and this means less stress for you and I.

Vintage & Antique items: Please note that most of the items on sale in my etsy shops are vintage or antique. They have been used and loved in a former lifetime and, in most instances, will bear the hallmarks of previous usage. I believe that these integral and inevitable signs of wear and tear are what give vintage items their distinctive character and charm. However, if you prefer items that are new and pristine in appearance, my wares may not be for you! Minor blemishes which are commensurate with age and prior usage - and which are not immediately noticeable - will not necessarily be referred to within the item description. However, more significant defects (such as noticeable stains or repairs) will always be mentioned so please read the description carefully before you purchase. I am always happy to supply further information should you require it.
