Two Penny Lick Glasses. Victorian icecream glasses used to sell a "two penny" worth of icecream. They were banned in the 1890's due to concerns they were spreading Tuberculosis and thus making it necessary for the invention of the icecream cone. Bought for 50c each, I have six.

Santons and Christmas Cribs of Provence. "The crèche provençale, or provençal crib, has been around for centuries. The significance of the santon (the word comes from santoùn, which means in provençal "little saint") began immediately after the French Revolution of 1789. Then churches were forcibly closed and sacked, or converted for other purposes such as storehouses." http://www.marvellous-provence.com/arts-and-traditions/traditions/christmas-in-provence/santons-and-christmas-cribs
