When we would see these original Victorian candy containers at Christmas museums or in people’s personal collections, the silk pouches would be falling apart or gone altogether. After decades of use, the paper cones were often badly crumpled, the scraps missing parts off of them, the handles worn or broken. It has always been our dream to use our old materials to recreate these fabulous paper decorations… in all their Victorian glory! These special cones with gathered silk tops, truly look like original paper decorations we have fallen in love with. And, just like in Victorian times, you can gently open the gathered pouch and tuck in a special surprise for someone to find on Christmas morning!
SPECIAL FEATURES Rare antique red lacquered paper covered over hand-formed cardboard cone, antique scrap boy in blue winter cloak holding Christmas presents and tree, antique Dresden paper borders, green antique silk fabric, antique silk thread. Hand-made and signed by Gail Giaimo.
