|One of my favorite images of Vreeland,|
during her years at the MET.
|The fish, presented in a Tiffany & Co. hinged box.|
|Flip the head back and strike the flint. It fits beautifully |
in the palm of your hand. The perfect size to carry in your
evening bag as well.
The golden sardine Mrs. Vreeland carried in her bag was just another talisman of her personality. Wit, humor, style, and taste were hallmarks of the impeccable woman, and certainly elements that we can all use a little more of in our lives. I'm not saying you should take up smoking to have the opportunity to be glamorous, but adding a little extra flair to the everyday never hurt anybody.
|Vreeland's fish lighter has an articulated tail, and is made of Gold |
with Ruby and Sapphire eyes.
