Two pretty antique French Paris sweet / chocolate christening boxes. The sweets have long gone !. One is dated 1903. It was traditional in France that the godfather and godmother offered to the family members and friends some drages at the time of the christening, you have a name on each box, Jacques for one and Jean for the other. Jean’s godfather and godmother names are on one card found inside the boxes. The family name seems to indicate that they were wealthy families. They are rather charming. Sold and priced together.

One of Nikki Page’s earliest recollections is of saving pocket money to acquire beautiful objects. This interest has blossomed over the intervening years into a business specializing in fine antiques and decorative pieces from the 19th and early 20th century.

As Nikki sells from her family home every item has to pass her obsessive attention to quality and detail. Countless hours are spent scouring at fairs, French Chateau and private home sales looking for rare and original pieces.
