Wonderful and indeed quite rare. Like Ingrid I generally prefer the more softened styles with filigree, but these here are great, too. I love the eyes!
Dear Ingrid, these are very different - I love the textures particularly the bigger telsum on the top left! Where are they from?
Thank you Eva, they must be double protective the item itself as well as the eyes. I myself prefer the softened file grain ones. `i have only a few of these. Gr. Ingrid
I like these eye designs! Gorgeous old pieces!
Dear Betty ad Charlotte, Here some not so very common telsums with the eye protection symbols, the two outer boxes are antiques the rest is old 1930 about. Here I can see what Charlotte think could be done, like on the 5 middle pcs. it can be seen that they have cut pcs out of one large etged in sheet.
As it is to be seen that the eyes are sometime half. But with the file grain items from Betty I do not think it to be the case. Well thought of Charlotte. Warm greetings, Ingrid.
