Precious



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 ;-)

What a beautiful treasure! And that passage looks similar to the one in Miland where I once had the most expensive coffee in my life. It was worth it! I love keepsakes from my grandmother and mom, too.

Something to cherish! How thoughtful from your mum!
