I bought these little french earrings today at Limognes made of (‘pate de verre’) paste and glass, they’re so pretty and probably from the 1950s.

They’ll go well with this vintage french scarf, from the 1950s. I’ve just researched ‘Jacques Fath’ and he was a famous Parisian fashion designer, who was the star of haute couture and died at aged only 42 in 1954. He was among the three most influential post war fashion designers, the other two were Christian Dior and Pierre Balmain.

He also designed costumes for a number of films including ‘The Red Shoes’.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Fath
