Faux Meerschaum Ornaments

If you have been following me for very long you may have remember where I did a post about making the best molds and castings? Well I spent some time in my studio making some new things up with that same technique. Inspired by the art of Meerschaum,  carved around the 1800's in France. These are stunning pieces of art. I recreated mine making my molds and castings form vintage statures. Heres just a few I put together.

you can find these and more on my etsy site.

Any Information Helpful

So I'm trying to find some information about a pair of very old socks
 I purchased at an Estate Sale.
A Dr. whose home was filled with antiques.
They are cotton, have lovely lace looking tops and the what I thought was embroidery is actually done in tiny beads. I can't read the writing though.


I found a couple more on the internet that look very similar to mine. 
They are from Germany 1848.
They have the same type of lace at the top. etc.
 Heres one more from Switzerland 1860.

So can anyone tell me anything about mine???
