Rare French Wind-Up Elephant

In excellent condition and full of charm is this antique, French key-wind mechanical elephant with original key, circa 1885.  Identified as an Indian elephant by the smaller ear size, this lovable mammal is covered in a soft, grey suede-like leather, has dark glass eyes, wooden tusks and wears an antique, embroidered silk cover that is attached with a gold, metallic strap.
When it is wound up, all four chubby legs hum and move in a brisk walking stride that is slowed down by putting the piece on a flat surface.  He prefers to be held if you really want to see those legs move or different surfaces need to be tried to find the right condition for walking.   8 1/2" tall at head, 9" long and 4 1/2" wide.

5 1/2" L  x  3 5/8" W  x  3 1/4" T
Huret Type Green

In that green we love so much, because it reminds us of the luscious color associated with Huret accessories, we have an antique, oval French fashion box.  It is of white cardboard covered in a garden green paper with gold edging, and has its original paper label from a Paris establishment called "Judith Barbier".  The original green ribbon handle remains as well as some of the original tissue that is discolored.

What we look for to accessorize our fine, early fashions are smaller (7 1/2") sized French parasols, preferably of silk with bone handle and finial, and trimmed all around with some soft, French lace. Perfect size for your 18" or so French fashion, with its original dark royal blue silk cover that has a highlighted pattern flowing throw the weave.  One of the metal spokes are broken causing a structural irregularity, but can be easily camouflaged with correct posing as shown in the photos.

French Salon Dogs

Each   $495.
The breed represented by these two puffy canines leans towards Papillon, however Chow, Pommeranean, and Maltese could get some votes as well.  The caffe late colored canine is 5 1/2" tall at the head and 4" in body length not counting the tale, Hi white furry companion is 5" tall and 4" in body length, not counting the equally bushy tail.  Both of them would be so fitting standing next to a French fashion, but they are willing to separate if need be.
