This is a vintage chalkware Bosson Head Brettonne woman wall hanging wall plaque.The head measures 5 and 1/2 inches high by 7 inches wide and is 3 and 1/2 inches deep. The back is stamped with the Bosson logo and the hanging divot is in tact.The color and detail on this head are really vivid and there are no chips on the face. There is a flake on the bottom right lace part of the collar. This head was produced from 1984 to 1992. I just love the cheery expression and detail on her face!

Bath: The Great War in Costume

Bath: The Great War in Costume | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

19 July - 31 August 2014


"The war is usually seen through military eyes.  However, it could not have been won without the efforts of millions of women. They proved what they could do  – what took a great deal longer was to convince everyone that they should do it."


‘Fighting on the Home Front:  The Legacy of Women in WorldWar One’  by  Kate  Adie, (Hodder &  Stoughton)

 

World War I changed women’s life forever; in terms of status, class, position and what was acceptable for a woman to wear. Fashion changed with the innovation of women being required to do men’s work. The corset disappeared and trousers became a norm.
