Sometimes surprises can be found inside a little box. A box from Fokke & Meltzer in this case (F&M was a very well known high quality department store in Amsterdam until the 80's) Send to the customer on 12 december 1960. Which proofs that 'shopping from a distance' is from all times. (And we thinking we invented it, with our internet and webshops, boy did we get that wrong) 

 

If you open the box, you'll find, hidden in soft tissue paper, adorable little porcelain roses. Loads of porcelain roses, 12 to be exact. And between the little leaf and the little flower there is a small ridge where you can place a name card. Since these roses can to hold up name tags to be used for table setting. 

 

And to leave no room for any misunderstanding who is hosting the dinner there is a rose shaped brooche for the lady of the manor. To wear on her dress. 

 

All totally original and intact, even the tissue paper. I wonder if it has ever been used after the first Christmas in 1960. If you buy it, you get the original Fokke & Meltzer box to go with it. And the tissue paper. So you will receive a box in a box. 

 

Anyway, this is a very special find, something to treasure and will last  for generations to come, if you handle them with care of course. 

 

Dimensions: 

table setting roses: height 2 cm, length 4 cm, width 2,5 cm

rose brooche: Royal Adderley, diameter 4 cm.
