C. 1860s. One of the Tuscarora ancients sold to tourists at Niagara Falls! This Tuscarora beaded eight lobed pin cushion has olive colored velvet, Bohemian glass seed beads, antique clear whimsy beads, and is packed tight with saw dust! Approximately 7" x 7" x 3". It's a beauty. And it has returned home...👍🖤😎 #tuscarora #tuscaroranation #skarure #tuscarorabeadwork #tuscaroraraisedbeadwork #raisedbeadwork #raisedbeading #iroquoisbeadwork #1860s #niagarafalls #goatisland #iroquoisraisedbeadwork #iroquois #haudenosaunee #beadedpincushion #seedbeads #beads #beadwork #czechbeads #czechseedbeads

Baking season is in full swing, and what would your pastries be without a little crimping? This 19th century pastry cutter is part of our arts & artifacts collection, and a necessary tool in 1866.

Why did I focus on the blocks between Lewis Street and Frank Street? Because even in the #1860s , it used to be a small isolated settlement at the far south of Ottawa, right beside the boundary at what is now #GladstoneAvenue . It’s a lot older than the parking lots and apartment buildings of today might make you think. 🏘🏬🏘 Close up of Lewis, Waverley and Frank streets east of Bank Street from “Bird’s Eye View of The City of Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) In 1876” https://static.torontopubliclibrary.ca/da/images/LC/pictures-r-1400.jpg 🏘🏬🏘 Closeup cropped from an aerial photo of Centretown taken in 1933. https://gsg.uottawa.ca/geo/airphotos/1933/A4570/A4570_61.jpg 🏘🏬🏘 #Ottawa #613history #ottawaarchitecture #igersOttawa #instaOttaww #DowntownBank #CentretownOttawa #LewisStreetOttawa #BankStreetOttawa #myOttawa #LoveOttawa #aerialphoto #map

Believe or not, but this is 'refridgerator' from 1860s. I was told that ice was transported from lakes of Boston, USA to India. Stored there in cellars and then ice was shipped to Philippines as a luxury item. And stored in this in the City of Taal in the upper class house. Well, electricity was invented later and trafficking ice was over. However ice is important even today to keep food and drinks healthy. #philippines #taal #ice #boston #shipment #transport #luxury #1860s

The Battle of Fredericksburg: December 11-15, 1862. When General Ambrose Burnside took command of the Army of the Potomac in November of 1862 he was anxious to mount another push on Richmond. He decided that the the best course of action was to push his army across the Rappahannock River at Fredericksburg, and try and go around Robert .E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. Burnside’s forces moved to the south-side of the Rappahannock across from Fredericksburg, but was unable to cross for over two weeks as they didn’t have the material for pontoon bridges. While the Union Army sat and waited, General Lee capitalized on the lull, and entrenched his forces on the bluffs behind Fredericksburg. Finally on December 11, Ambrose and his men were able to cross. Union engineers built the pontoon bridges while under fire from rebel skirmishers and Confederate artillery on the bluffs. At the same time Union artillery began shelling the town in an attempt to drive the skirmishers out. By the next day the entire Union Army was across, and on the 13th Burnside ordered a series of attacks on the strategic positions of Prospect Hill and Marye’s Heights. Although the Union left under the command of General George Meade managed to break through the Confederate line commanded by “Stonewall” Jackson, they were quickly pushed back. This set the tone for the rest of the battle. After a series of failed and costly assaults by the Northern troops they were finally called off on the 15th and ordered to re-cross the river. The Union forces lost 12,500 of their 100,000 man force. The Confederates Lost 6,000 of a force initially totaling 72,000. A handful of important generals were among the fallen. Those being C. Feger Jackson and George Bayard of the United States Army, as well asThomas R. R. Cobb and Maxey Gregg of the Confederate States Army. General Burnside was relieved of his commanding January of 1863. #history #militaryhistory #warhistory #military #unitedstates #fredricksburg #union #confederate #war #civilwar #1860s
“Actually, I know of no braver men in either army than the Union troops at Fredericksburg. Which is a serious defeat. But to keep charging that wall at the foot of Marye’s Heights after all the failures they been in, and they were all failures, is a singular instance of valor.” -Shelby Foote on the Battle of Fredericksburg #history #militaryhistory #warhistory #unitedstates #virginia #fredricksburg #union #confederate #north #south #military #war #civilwar #1860s
Here is a American antique oil on canvas painting of a pleasant looking woman with a white bonnet and a black satin dress. The artist painted pink flowers on the sides of her bonnet and she has a lace bodice and lace sleeves. The painting is framed in its original frame that has lots of ares of damage. The entire piece measures 25 1/2 x 29 7/8 in.Canvas alone measures 20 x 24 in.I do not see a signature. The painting is in FAIR as is vintage condition with some cracking paint on her forehead and on the inner corner of one eye.The frame is in POOR as is vintage condition with chipped/missing compo/gesso on the corners,surface scrapes,etc. It is heavy and solid though. I can ship this cheaper canvas alone, so let me know if that interests you.I would date this to the 1850-60s time period. Perfect for Victorian,Farmhouse,Eclectic,and mid to late 1800s decors.For sale in my ebay store~ #americanart #antiquepaintings #antiqueoilpainting #antiqueportrait #oilportrait #gallerywall #womanportrait #victorianpainting #victoriandecor #victorian #1860s #1870s #art #forsale #antiqueartgarden #farmhousedecor

A fave of ours - "Balmoral" boots in black sateen and leather with clip-on rosettes. We designed these boots from two originals in our collection and they are just so cute.

South America 154 years ago today: Outbreak of the Paraguayan War (13 Dec 1864) https://buff.ly/2Ej7IBi In 1864 Brazil intervened in Uruguay in support of the liberal Colorado Party, prompting Uruguay’s governing Blanco Party to call on Paraguay for support. Confident in his larger and better-equipped military, and desirous of settling his country’s numerous unresolved border disputes, Paraguayan President Solano López declared war on Brazil in December. #southamerica #history #welovemaps #map #1860s #1864 #brazil #chinchaislands #december #december13 #paraguay #peru #southamericanhistory #spanishempire #uruguay #maps #paraguayanwar #triplealliance #solanolopez #todayinhistory #historygeek #historynerd #historybuff #historyteacher #historytoday #southamericanhistory #empireofbrazil #worldhistory #americas #latinamerica
My #midvictorian #lace #daycap is made with vintage and antique lace and the tiny red ribbon is real silk. It looks sweet, dainty and demure which is the perfect look for the period. There is only one problem with this daycap. Sweet, dainty and demure doesn’t seem to suit me. My husband and son almost choked laughing and one of my friends said I looked like an easter egg. (Which is an accurate description of how I feel when I wear it) #1850s #1850sfashion #1860s #1860sfashion #victorian #victoriancostuming #victoriancostume #historicalcostuming
The L.Y. Schermerhorn House, originally built in 1869 and designed by the prominent Chicago architect William LeBaron Jenney, is one of the oldest surviving residences in Riverside, the first ever suburb. . Schermerhorn was a partner in Jenney's architecture and engineering firm, which was employed to carry out Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux's General Plan of Riverside. The Gothic Revival house is identified as an Illinois Historic Structure as well as a Riverside landmark. .

I had so many questions about the necklace I wore with my 1830s outfit last weekend that I've decided to offer it in the shop. This necklace is perfect for most Victorian impressions and this style is fashionable from the late 1830s through the bustle era. I love the look of these black velvet chokers! .

Второй кринолин с кбк решил воплотиться в одночасье для соревнований из, как говорится, того, что было под рукой - а под рукой была МакГи'с Элис в кровавом фартуке (которую я уже выкладывала ранее). Метры шнура, десятки вензелей и докупленная ткань разительно изменили её образ) Однако приятно, что нашлись люди, которые узнали и его раннюю версию =) #historicalcostuming #periodcostume #historicalfashion #victorianfashion #victorianera #19thcentury #1800s #1860s #crinoline

Abraham Lincoln, by name Honest Abe, the Rail-Splitter, or the Great Emancipator, (born February 12, 1809, near Hodgenville, Kentucky, U.S.—died April 15, 1865, Washington, D.C.), 16th president of the United States (1861–65), who preserved the Union during the American Civil War and brought about the emancipation of the slaves.

It's Tuesday, so it's time to guess that street! This photo was taken in 1866 by William J. Oliphant, one of the earliest photographers to have a studio in Austin. The Missouri House building, depicted on the right, still stands on this street, but you may know it by a different name. Which street is this? (Imaginary bonus points if you know what the street name was in 1866.)

Here she is - my huge cotton organdy flounced petticoat in all her glory. Taken in the kitchen because I have a terrible feeling this outfit is not going to fit in my sewing room.

My favorite bust in my collection is this 1863 Royal Copenhagen bisque portrait of Princess Alexandra, after the original by Danish sculptor Theobald Stein (1829-1901). This depiction presents a natural likeness of the Princess’ beautiful features, and from certain angles it reminds me of the Duchess of Cambridge, who will one day hold the titles that Alexandra did. #antique #bisque #bust #portraitbust #profileportrait #princessofwales #princessalexandra #alexandraofdenmark #queenalexandra #britishmonarchy #britishroyalfamily #1863 #1860s #19thcentury #royalcopenhagen #theobaldstein #sculpture #antiquesculpture #danishsculpture #danishsculptor
