*SOLD* Art Nouveau brass Pierrot & the Moon hand mirror: $20

is a character whose origins go back to the 17th century.   A figure of naivete and hopeful (though unreturned) love,  he is often depicted with his only friend, the moon.   This antique Art Nouveau handheld brass mirror shows Pierrot and Pierrette reaching for the moon.

Some of you may know the song "Au clair de la lune," and be familiar with the verse that includes the name Pierrot.   Did you know that this song has also been recorded as a bawdy folk tune?   If you re-read the lyrics, it isn't too hard to see the double entendre ;)

The mirror measures 9" in length, and almost 5" across at its widest point.
Price: $30 $20
