Antique WWI Brass Brooch, René Lalique,
Journée du Poilu - 1915 - SOLD


Antique WWI Brass Brooch, René Lalique, Journée du Poilu - 1915 entire view

During WW1 René Lalique’s brilliant jewelry designs were used to produce medallions, pendants,
brooches and pins which were sold to raise money for French soldiers, their wives and children. This
design was created for ‘Poilu Day’, which was organized by the French government. A naked muscular
soldier (the 'Poilu') is shown wrestling the German Imperial Eagle…one of the most evocative designs
produced by Lalique during this period. The 1.25 x 1.25-inch medal bears the inscription ‘Journée du
Poilu 1915’ and is clearly signed 'R Lalique’ at the bottom left corner. The depth of definition is excellent;
Lalique signature is clear and sharp. The pin and hook are in great condition.

Hat, Jack Tar, Seaman's
Early 19th Century - SOLD


Antique Hat, Jack Tar Hat, Early 19th Century, angle view

Jack Tar is common term for early seamen, and we are offering a rare survivor of one of their waterproof hats. Tarred seamen's hats were worn by both American's and the English in much the same form as they battled common elements.

The seaman's hat was coated with black tar to ensure it remained waterproof while on the water. Our example is in remarkably good condition with a minor scratch on the surface of the slightly warped brim. The original band, generally a ribbon is missing but the threads to hold the band in place remain. Lined in linen the hat is stamped with W and Z on the interior. Early sailor's everyday items are rare survivors, especially in this condition. An opportunity to own a piece of history rarely found even in the most advanced collections.

Dimensions: 14" approximate diameter, 3" H.

For additional information about Jack Tar, both the term and the seamen see: Marine Art and Antiques, Jack Tar, A Sailor's Life 1750-1910 by J. Welles Henderson and Rodney P. Carlisle. Published 1999.

Moroccan Leather Pocketbook or Purse, Joseph H Bubier / Marblehead / 1773
Joseph H Bubier / Marblehead (Massachusetts) / Tetuan /1 773
Excellent condition with expected wear; Supple, and retaining excellent color
Rare Artifact: Prized possession of a wealthy 18th century traveler to Morocco
(7'' x 4'' x 1/2'' bi-folded; with 1859 note of provenance in pocket)
Red Leather embroidered with metallic threads, side view 1

Capt. Joseph H Bubier of Marblehead was master of the schooner Unity. During the American
Revolutionary War, the Unity was involved with the campaign to run the English out of "New Ireland", a
newly declared British Province in Maine, One of several ships to carry important war cargo up the
Penobscot River, only to meet with most or all ships being captured and burned by the British. Bubier died
in 1783 under mysterious circumstances, and the wallet passed to his nephew William H.C. Bubier in 1859,
leaving a manuscript note of provenance in the wallet. More information on Bubier can be found easily with
an internet search, including his family history, picture of his grave, etc. The pocketbook was undoubtedly
made for Bubier on a trip to Morocco in 1773, most likely on his ship The Susannah.
