Fresh from a New Orleans estate, wonderful ball favor from the Krewe of Proteus, dated 1985. Generous size, 1.75 inches tall, 1.25 inches wide, clasp works fine. Excellent condition (photo makes it look like there is a small "rub" on the enamel - trick of the light). Features a New Orleans style lamp post with street signs for Frenchmen, Desire, and Good Children streets (actual names of New Orleans streets). Proteus is one of the "old line" Carnival krewes, and their favors are highly prized and collected. This was never offered for sale to the general public - you had to be a lucky guest at their ball that year to receive one.
