Ninth Day of Christmas
Four little pincushions with black etched designs dying
to become blackwork on a sampler.
On the First Day of Christmas my True Love...
chose this combination.
Notes on the Cameo
The indications of a cameo's age can be found in her face. This one is from the 1920's. If she were earlier, her face would have been fleshier, her nose more pronounced, long and straight.
Note on the Chain
A contemporary chain showing the Post Post Moderne heritage from Art Deco.
Note on Dowager in the Evening
My personal nod to the 1920's.
