Sterling coin holders I dug out to share
I was rummaging through some of my papers and came across these adorable coin holders I picked up a while ago. There is a favorite antique shop in Cedarburg, Wisconsin a little north of Milwaukee called Nouveau Antiques that is one of or favorites of all time. We hardly ever get that way but when we do, we make a point to stop as they have all kinds of amazing pieces of Art Nouveau amassed in one place. If you ever get a chance, check it out. The whole town is pretty neat really.
I wasn't expecting to find these old Tiffany coin holders there, but you never know when and where these things will pop up. I asked to see them and I instantly said I would take them. They asked which one and I said "both"!
I picture them used with a smaller clutch purse for making phone calls or whatnot and tossed a few mercs in them just to show what they are for. Just a couple so as to not over stress the spring inside.
If you folks have anything similar, post it here! I would love to see it.
