Based on the "nouveau franc" 2,25 NF price tags, I believe these embroidery project items were purchased at Aux Dames de France department store sometime in the late 1950s to early 1960s when France had serious economic issues and had to revalue their money. Aux Dames de France stores no longer exist, having closed their shops across France in 1985, after almost 100 years in business. But apparently Steiner Frères of Paris is still a popular and sought after supplier of needlepoint and crossstitch supplies. If you love embroidery and this listing caught your eye, you likely know way more about these things than I do. My specialty is antique postcards, but sometimes the French dealers tempt me with other goodies! To be honest, I don't know what these two items are supposed to be. A fancy dinner napkin? A mini pillow? Here's what I can tell you for sure: Laying flat, each item measures about 9 by 10.25 inches. That measurement does not include the half-inch border with the French text.The interior pocket is 4.5 inches deep. The staples in the tags have left small light rust marks. You will receive all that is pictured here: the vintage paper sack the items came in, the DMC floss and the two clothes. One is a light sky blue (hen and chick design) and the other a light pink (dog and parrot). No smoke smells!
