After the event, we toured the Hunter-Dawson home and I photographed a few gems, including this blue glass darning egg (prob. 20th century, but still lovely)
There was a beautiful silk embroidered doily (likely also from the early 20th century)
This 1840s portrait of the owner and her son shows one of my favorite accessories: a coral necklace.
Upstairs were some exquisite little baby things (perhaps from a variety of mid- to late-19th century dates)
Just look at the details on this tiny coat
One room had some mourning items, including this necklace
and this watch fob
The tiny little man got a chance to display himself as a font of knowledge and I got to see a a few of the garments he had made for the display. He has a coarse hand and has fortunately given up sewing.
... more to come ...
