There is a base that is almost a semi-circular shape that feels like a thin sliver of wood but is probably a hardened paper product. I cannot say for sure about that or its age or manufacturer. I bought it at sale with many items from the late 1800's and early 1900's. Above the base is another, but smaller, semi-circular wood-like wavy material that appears to have been painted or dyed blue. Attached underneath that smaller piece of wood is the robin's egg blue fringe. The fringe is in very good condition and maybe made of cotton. It appears a die cut paper was glued on which has the swan and flowers. The two word phrase written in gold colored ink is "Loving Wishes." On top, the manufacturer made two holes to tie a blue and white cord through and the cord is tied into a bow and I would think that this would be hung up on a wall. The top parts are connected to the base with what looks like a rivet. There is a tiny wooden spool that was used to keep the top about one quarter inch above the base. The top part swivels with the rivet and spool attachment. The top isn't quite aligned properly in the photo. I think that this is quite old because wood was used as a spool instead of plastic. Also, I am not young anymore and have never seen anything like this before. The edges of the base are painted blue where the wave sticks out, and every half inch or so of the bottom sight area. The blue or white paint at the bottom is missing in such a pattern it might have been intentional. As stated, the top can be swiveled so the top part and the swan are not tilted. The top board is pliant to made the memento less droopy. Regardless, none of the top should touch the base except a little of the fringe. The back is shown in the second photo is in basically solid condition with a little pencil writing. The item is about 7 inches across and 3.5 inches from top to bottom not counting the cord. There is minor toning or discolor but I think this is quite clean assuming that it is decades old.
