Crepuscule (French for “dusk”): a grand French figural button carved by Armand Bargas with the romantic twilight-themed scene of a chignoned woman surrounded by a trio of bats flying through the starlit sky—resting atop a rare antique Sterling silver buckle carved in the form of an open-winged bat by Ferdinand Erhart, circa 1908.

Serpents and Sorceresses—a decadent assortment of antique Art Nouveau brooches and buttons, including interlaced serpents accented with shimmering garnets and marcasite, a fluttering of bats, plus the witchy women who are perfectly content to share their time with either (and perhaps be convinced to tell your fortune while doing so).
