    Don't know they are so beautiful i don't dare look touch inside them. the backs have a stem. This women went to Paris after her husband died, traveled all around Europe, sent postcards here to her sister. This was after 1900, in 1880 -1894 she traveled with him to the Far East. He was a Captain of the last Clipper ships leaving New England these years, Steam ships were everywhere then. So possibly this came from Europe she had a ton of money left from him, bought a ton of antiques, She died in our house which was her sisters house 1917 left all antiques here then. We have what was was left, Museums have a ton of very old Chinese antiques, and our towns Historical museum has stuff given to them over these years, i just donated some a letter from A Surgical Dr on the battlefield in Europe WW1 to here. i will post today it was hard to read so it was rewritten.
