Just a fun old thing from France, souvenir type item bought during a Paris visit, with Tour Eiffel, on both sides of the mechanism hinged disc. Body has knobs to change the day of the week and the month. The dates are numbered white enamel on metal tabs that are stacked in order, and fall in place of the opening, as you keep rotating to get the right date, both sides are used consecutively. Not marked, at 3.5 inches high.
I tried to clean it a bit, but metal is too eroded, and the Paris scene is a transferred illustration that is very fragile on the metal's surface. I have been to Paris twice, and saw the Eiffel Tower in all it's glory, in the middle of a beautiful large garden and benches for visitors.
