Victorian Babble and Bauble

Event Dates and Times

6/29/2013 - 9/15/2013
Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum, 411 Kent Street, Rockford, IL 61102
Victorian Babbles and Baubles, June 29-September 15, shows the distinctness that is the 19th century while detailing the widely varying styles and aesthetic choices from the personal collection of the Tinker Family. A Victorian woman was defined by what she wore and how she accessorized it. Her choices could have lasting meaning throughout the community and would influence how others saw and interacted with her. This exhibit shows exactly what it meant for a middle to upper class female to be fully dressed during the Victorian Era, which includes everything from shoes and fans to broaches and headwear.
