Sleek and chic we love these cards from mr. P's Placecards. One of Carolyn's favorites they have graced her tables many times.
Originally painted by Mr. P's Placecards on small pieces of ivory, their soft and alluring gaze is intoxicating. The Punctilious Mr. P's 'Lover's Eye' place card set brings instant chic to any table and to spark joy and conversion.
Did you know???Small paintings of eyes first became popular during the late eighteenth century. They reminded wearers of a loved one, whose identity remained a secret. The single eye also symbolized the watchful gaze of a jealous partner, who feared that his or her lover might stray.
One of the earliest known eye miniatures was painted in 1786 by the English artist Richard Cosway for the Prince of Wales, later King George IV.
