Crown Canvases with Gold Leaf Flakes and Wine Glasses with Crowns and Fleur de Lis Designs

The significance of the crown to New Orleans:  During Mardi Gras all kings and queens of each parade is adorned with a beautiful majestic crown.   You will see many crown pins on clothing and crown decorations on our doors.  Some of these crowns are in purple, green and gold the official colors of Mardi Gras.  Purple for justice, green for faith, and gold for power.

The significance of the fleur de lis:  Its birth emblazoned on French explorer’s flag when Nouvelle Orleans was founded in 1718, edged silver brooches in the 1890’s, decorated Mardi Gras Ball invitations in the 1920’s, and on the football helmets of the New Orleans Saints.  La Salle planted a white flag with gold fleur de lis claiming the territory of the mouth of the Mississippi for King Louis the X1V.  We honor this symbol in art, architecture, jewelry and clothing.  I hope you feel the spirit of New Orleans when you purchase either the crown or the fleur de lis.  If you visit NOLA, it is said by so many that you will fall in love with her and never leave!
