On the Sixth Day of Holiday Giveaways........




The Sixth Day of Holiday Giveaways brings more French Delights from Andrea of The French Basketeer and Metis Linens









FIVE GOLDEN RINGS, plus one to spare....
Andrea of French Basketeer and Metis Linens has provided Five Golden Rings, plus one to spare for a set of six.  Well, OK they are really French Brass Curtain Rings, but they can double easily on your holiday table for napkin rings!
They are made of what the French call "Laiton" or "yellow copper."  Brass is an alloy of copper and just a little zinc, sometimes other metals are added in small amounts; but somehow the French version comes with a beautiful golden patina unlike most of the brass found today.
The rings are 2 3/4" in diameter to the edges.



Andrea is also providing a pair of vintage linen dishtowels with red "CR" monogram.  The towels are a generous 34" x 29" and have oh, probably another 100 years of wear left in them.  They can be ironed flat or used as shown here, straight from a tumble in the dryer. 


These rings have a beautiful patina just as they were found, in France. I have several of these and trust me they are gorgeous, very unique!
