Now this is a curiosity... but not as macabre as you might think. The Victorians would happily send a fallen wren or robin around New Year as a symbol of good luck for the year ahead. This gilded French paperweight Circa 1880s is a way of enjoying the good luck all year round.

A particularly finely chased gilded metal paperweight in the style of Paul Comolera, French 19th Century.

11cm long
