Antique French Fashion Accessories

Today’s post is all about the pictures. And a few words.

I’ve mentioned before that some dolls are collectors. French fashion dolls are notorious for this.  Here are some of the antique accessories my FF’s have collected:

    • Hi Caty,

      Thanks for the lovely comments.

      Yes they are real tintype photos. You can often find fairy albums at antique shows. Mine measures about 1 3/4″ square by 7/8″ thick.

      Emily
