Artifact of the Month – February 2014

February’s artifact features wedding apparel which is only fitting since February is when we celebrate love. Our exhibit includes delicate slippers dating from 1845 plus a wedding veil and pearl accented ring bearer cushion which date from 1942. The amber bridesmaid’s hat is from the 1930s era.

Given that most of our featured items are white, we thought it appropriate that we include a brief write-up on the origin of the white wedding (see below). For those of you ho want more details, you can check out the White Wedding Wiki.
