French Art Nouveau "Aide-Mémoire" Repoussé Notebook PendantThis item is unavailable
Lay your eyes upon this French Art Nouveau "aide-mémoire" repoussé notebook pendant! The French word "aide-mémoire translates" to "an aid to memory", this little notebook would've been used to write down important notes on the go, and would've been kept close to hand at all times.
Bursting with charm, upon opening the notebook, the first page is signed "Vincent Roucket". We are intrigued as to who this once was, potentially a name of the previous keeper, or a name of importance jotted down. Either way, add this antique notebook to your collection and you'll have a piece of history in your possession.
Classically Art Nouveau in design, her pages sit encased within a Silver plated cover, adorned with incredible repoussé work. She is a real testament to the craftsmanship of the late 19th century. Complete with a dinky pencil that slots into a holder, simply pop her in your handbag and enjoy as originally intended, or wear it as a pendant for a statement antique look.
