I used to do a feature I called Tuesday’s treasures. I would volunteer at the Costume Museum on Tuesdays and I’d share something I saw. Then, for two years I couldn’t volunteer so the feature died. I’m back at it now so let’s see if I can resurrect this old feature.
This past Tuesday the museum was setting up a new pop up exhibit in our work space. It is ladies undies and PJ’s through the ages. I didn’t take photos of everything…just the stuff I’m interested in or that I worked on.
My main job was setting up the display drawers with fans, stockings and jewelry. My work mate and I decided not to go with consistent dates in each drawer but more along the lines of color and pattern.
The swirl in the middle is a hair necklace and just above that is a hair brooch.
The carved fan on the bottom middle is lovely!
There are two chainmail purses in this drawer. If you look at the fan in the top/middle…just to left of it is a small coin purse and just below the fan is a slightly larger one with finer links.
The fan on the bottom middle has a cool little metal lever in the slot. Moving the lever up and down will open and close the fan!
The two little pins on the bottom are pictures of birds made with tiny little feathers.
Guess which one is my favorite!
