Sometimes it's the simplest things…just a bit from the past...that makes my heart skip a beat. This small lace mat, found in a box of birthday cards and baby dresses… from 100 years ago. Just something simple, but not simple at all when you look at the exquisite workmanship of the lace..and when I see something like this, I can't help but think, who was the woman who made this, so long ago? Antiques are stories...and there's a story behind this exquisite lace....now sitting on the shelf of my antique store, for only $20. Walk back in time with us.

This gorgeous Florentine 19th century white lacquered and gilt wood doorway belongs to the period called “Firenze Capitale” (1865 to 1871). The white lacquer highlights the splendor of gilt leaf details and the great shape of this one-of-a-kind doorway. The front of the door is decorated with masterfully carved giltwood frames throughout enriched by a shell, scrolls and floral patterns. The original finely chiseled gilt bronze hardware work perfectly. Both ormolu hinges and the lock are a real work of art, made with lost wax casting method. Their shapes completely fit the regal style of the door. The back of the door is decorated with a gold leaf frame. In very good condition.

What a night! Here are some snapshots from yesterday's production, Don Giovanni in New York, at Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. Loving the connection of Mozart's librettist, Lorenzo da Ponte, to Old St. Patrick's, his home parish in his adopted city of New York. Superb singing and acting, music expertly performed. An extra nice touch was the opportunity to hear the historic Erben Organ, played by Basilica Organist Jared Lamenzo, in Act II (stay tuned for video). #Erben150

In the 21st century, the workaday world is not as tightly entwined with the spiritual world as it was in the 19th century. For many Americans, day to day life was filled with the holy spirit. Understanding, the role of religion to an average citizen is important in interpreting the mid 19th century. Reverend Brantley presents an overview of the role of religion in life and society in the 19th century, the development of religious culture in the Victorian age, and a comparison of religious denominations then and now.

A view from the top of these Derby porcleain bough pots.
A magnificent garniture / set of three Derby factory early 19th century Bough pots with encrusted flowers lids. All the flowers were individually hand made and put together, these flower are so elegant and delicate that they look so real. Usually similar bough pots by Derby factory were made as they were so fashionable and in demand to display flowers in them so typically the bough pots had lids with the holes in them to hold the real flowers display and here Derby factory took another level of great skills of porcelain making flowers on these lids for these flowers to last for much much longer certainly for over 200 years.
In 18th century French porcelain factory Sevres produced beautiful hand made porcelain flower to decorate on different objects and the German porcelain factor Meissen and soon the same fashion arrived in England and English porcelain factories made equally beautiful flowers if not better perhaps like this set of Derby porcelain bough pots.

On this day 24 May 1819 Queen Victoria I was born at Kensington Palace. I have only recently started to explore Victoria I when I started watching the show and then I read some real articles on her. I might soon order a full biography.
Here are some facts on Victoria:
• Victoria's first name was Alexandrina (nicknamed Drina), but she started using Victoria - her middle name - when she ascended to the throne.
• At the time of her birth, Victoria was only fifth in line of the succession. But the deaths of the various princes and their lack of male heirs resulted in Victoria becoming Queen.
• Victoria was the one who proposed to Prince Alberth of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. The were married in 1840. On their wedding day Victoria wore a white dress. With this she broke tradition and made the white wedding dress became established till this day.
• Victoria didn't like children very much and resented being pregnant, despite that she had 9 children, four boys and five girls.
• After 21 years of a loving marriage, Victoria became a widow when her husband Albert died from typhoid at the age of 42. She mourned him for the rest 40 years of her life and always wore black, rarely appearing in public.
• She spoke 5 languages: German, English, French, Latin and Italian. She also learned some Hindustani and Urdu.
• She survived 8 assassination attempts. Most of them occured while she was riding in her open carriage. She also had a stalker named Edward Jones, who broke into Buckingham Palace several times, but was eventually caught.
• She was the first monarch to travel on a train, use electric lights and a telephone.
• Victoria carried a gene mutation for hemophillia, a disorder when blood doesn't clot as it normally should, leading those who have it, to bleed excessively from even the smallest of cuts.
• She was a patronage to more than 150 institutions, armed forces, museum and educational organizations.
