In the 17i)0's grand ladies carried little hinged boxes, sometimes of Battersea enamel, containing tiny black patches of silk to stick on their faces as accent for beautiful eyes, a fascinating dimple, or—heaven forbid!—to conceal a skin blemish. Marie Antoinette and other beauties of her day used small china receptacles on their dressing tables to hold court plaster patches or jewelry. The marks of leading manufacturers of porcelain, such as Sevres, Meissen and particularly Staffordshire, are found on these little china boxes which were often given as gifts. Styles and designs varied greatly. The collector may encounter miniature dressing tables, wash stands, arm chairs, miniature fireplace mantels or even "group" pieces. He also finds smaller boxes, some shaped like Easter eggs, others topped with arrangements of fruit or flowers. Workmen who fashioned them were ingenious and resourceful, not following any pattern exactly. It is only rarely that one finds matching pieces, although specimens that are almost identical, can be found.

Coffee »nd ice Tea By VIVIAN BROWN Travel offers many opportunities for acquiring unusual as well as interesting objects to improve a room at home or at school. Art, for instance, originals or reproductions, One great possibility for not too-well - heeled art- - conscious types are museum shop, stores where, for a pittance, one may find art that can make pleasing displays on walls or may be put in scrapbooks. An expert in pictures and frames, Fred Rosenau of New York points out: "All museums have postcard size editions of larger prints, and these may be grouped together and framed for attractive inexpensive wall displays or put in scrapbooks." More than 5,000 subjects are available at museum sales desks in this country, he points out. And many museums have reproductions of other art for sale. "Years ago accuracy suffered when art was reduced in size, but small picture postcards are almost as good in color as exact re­ productions," he says. Very large prints run to 35 inches. Extra-size prints are up to 30 inches. Smaller size prints, averaging from about 18 to 22 inches offer a large choice of the world's wonderful arts works —Gauguin, Van Gogh, Raphael, Renior, Dufy, Degas, Braque, Ingres, Signac, Rouault, Utrillo, Da Vinci, Modigliani. Rossenau has noted the younger generation is more modern- minded iit its selection of art than older folk; non-objective type abstract painting is being replaced by more contemporary type art in pictures for business walls. That is Rosenau's yardstick for judging real art interest. Many executives who do not have art in their homes are likely to have art on their business walls. "They don't often know enough about it to express an opinion, except perhaps they want something to make their office look different than 500 others like it. Ten years from now when today's STARTING SUNDAY See ELVIS in "IT HAPPENED AT THE WORLD'S FAIR" CAM THEATRE IAKI Kneyville ICE (REAM SUPPER McCOLLUM METHODIST CHURCH FOURTH & SEMINARY ST.

Rain — Cbiuch Basement teen-agers have moved up to executive-type jobs, they will have more to say about what they display." Young people can find illustrations in old magazines worth framing, and they could even try framing their own artistic expressions. It is one more way to develop interest in good art, Rosenau advises. And by doing it ourselves we can appreciate the talent of others. "A ypung person who lives far from museums can write for booklets on art reproductions and prints, and learn a good deal about preferences by examining catalogues, noting techniques, colors, and the art sfyle that has the most appeal. This offers great opportunity for young people who do not travel much, but want to keep up with our new cultural life," he says.
