This is primarily a show-and-tell presentation featuring many of the objects from Candice’s Collections, appropriate for readers, writers, and historians interested in the Regency period. Concentrating on items found on a lady’s dressing table as well as various fashion accessories, the presentation includes scent bottles (such as the Derby porcelain scent bottle shown here), vinaigrettes, cosmetic cases, jewelry, fans, purses, quizzing glasses, and shoe buckles. Candice will explain the historical context of each group of items and describe how they were used. A PowerPoint presentation provides detailed images of the items as well as paintings and fashion prints that show similar items in use.
The items will be on display for all attendees to examine closely.
