    I'd bought a super glass jug and a lovely bit of Hutschenreuth for a few quid. These were one whole pound.

    For BOTH.

    The choker is tiny, and on moire silk. I suspect early twentieth or weevil late nineteenth. Bag probably twenties.

    yup, bit pleased.

    That's it. I want to shop where you shop! The choker looks a lot like a headband, unless it's too small. Artistic types wore them.

    Those beaded chokers were fashionable in the late 19th-early 20th century. There were these ones with geometrical motifs, and then there were the ones with festoons.

    I've seen them, not often, but this is in outstanding condition. I'd imaging it was more popular with the younger crowd.

    Where the devil did weevil come from!

    Yes, it’s choker length and too short for a headband. Given it was messed up in a box of nonsense, the condition is astonishing. The bag, too.

    I was wondering about that at first, but then decided even weevils are worthy of a mention every now and then.:)

    Besides, weevils make good bird food. Just ask a bird.
