Christmas 2021 Deco Influence

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.
