Last Sunday Hubby and I visited the Charleston Museum.
I shared photos of the jewelry exhibit and traveling 'Threads of War' exhibit on my other blogspot
Being a 'fan' of all things Victorian I decided to post some of the fan collection from the museum.
Below is an antique advertising fan from 1888.
This fan was stunning.
More very fine fans.
The finely carved mother-of-pearl base of this fan shimmers.
This fan was as delicate as lace.
The artwork on this fan is complimented with a beautiful gold embossed base.
I thought I would share some of the gorgeous hair combs that added that little extra pizzazz to a lady's hairstyle.
This beaded purse would have been the final sparkle to a lovely outfit.
I hope you enjoyed these antique treasures.
Be sure to visit the Thrifty Reenactor blogspot listed at the beginning of this post for more of the Charleston Museum exhibits.
