These two ballet dancers I've inherited from my aunt. I remeber from the 1950s and -60s that she used them for decoration on the table when she had dinner parties.
She put them onto two little mirrors which she placed on each side of a some flowers she also used for decoration. Sometimes she also used tulle to make it even prettier. My auntie always made a really big effort to make the tables look wonderful and she often made the table the day before the "big event" (Almost like Hyacinth in "Keeping up appearances").
