Poor Mouchette | Curated Antique Jewelry, Vintage Jewelry & Engagement Rings | Portland, Oregon | A dainty, mid 20th century charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold, as a flashlight, with a blue-flash moonstone “lens.” This miniature watchman’s flashlight is a rarity. It is beautifully made and full of symbolic potential— we think it’s about finding your way in the dark, but you may see another metaphor that hovers around the idea of light.
