A Masonic logo sits proud atop this chunky vintage Mexican biker ring and is surrounded by two large owls on the shanks. Freemasonry describes itself as a “beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.” The symbolism is mainly, but not exclusively, drawn from the manual tools of stonemasons—the square and compasses, the level and plumb rule, the trowel, etc. Owls are associated with knowledge and are both a Masonic and Illuminati symbol. Freemasons consider the owl a symbol of reincarnation: since it is awake at night they consider it a symbol of the soul that has left a dead body and remains in the night, waiting to re-enter another body that is being conceived. For them the owl symbolizes metempsychosis, which is their theory of reincarnation of the souls.

Paulette Goddard photographed in front of a vanity in her dressing room (c. 1940s). A portrait of Marlene can be seen behind her.
Marlene didn't like Paulette much. According to her daughter Maria Riva, Marlene used to quote Goddard: "Never, ever sleep with a man until he gives you a pure white stone of at least ten carats." Dietrich also believed that Paulette only married Remarque for his money and the art collection he had.

So much pretty! C1940 this blouse has wonderful sleeve detail. I love pieces from late 30s/early 40s. The shoulders are very wide set so whilst there is no evidence of there being shoulder pads internally, the blouse would carry them very well. #1930s #1940s #silkcrepe
