Even non-dancers can enjoy dramatic views of ballerinas on a gaslit stage in nineteenth-century Paris. Galison's Degas Dancers keepsake box holds four cards each of four different images: the cover image, Green Dancer, is a pastel and gouache on paper, c. 1880, in the Museum Thyssen-Boremisza, Madrid. From the Musee d'Orsay, there are End of an Arabesque, an oil and pastel on canvas from 1877, and The Star, pastel on paper, c. 1876. The "en pointe" dancer from The Rehearsal is a pastel and oil from a private collection.A sturdy decorative box holds cards and envelopes neatly, and when the cards have been sent, it's great for storing all sorts of little things--from extra buttons to pearls.

We ordered the boxed Degas cards which we really like for our dance store. We wish they could be purchased at a better wholesale price so they aren't as expensive for our customers. Also, we would like to see other dance or Degas related items for purchase.
