I am so glad to actually see a cotillon accessory! Cotillon figures are full of unusual object, and it is sometime hard to figure out how they'd look. Thank you a lot for this article.

I suspect most cotillon accessories were ephemeral - the equivalent of cheap modern paper party products - and weren't made to last.
