Received this little set from my mother. It belonged to my grandmother, and must be from around 1925. It's sterling silver and was bought in a jewelryshop.
Nowadays you can't buy this anymore in a jewelry shop I think.
It is very precious to me, and I will use it for my crochet work.
And pass it on ...
I googled the adress, to see if perhaps the shop would still exist. It doesn't,
but the 'passage' is still a shopping arcade in Genève.
The lions are still guarding it, preventing it from a
eventual demolishing attack ;-)
