50 Years In Italy: Stolen Treasures Return to Italy

50 Years In Italy: Stolen Treasures Return to Italy | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Ever since the 1770s when William Hamilton collected and exported Greek vases found in the excavations of Pompeii , ancient artifacts and tomb robbers ( tombaroli ) have been part of the Italian scene.
According to the Carabinieri, the theft of Italy’s art and archeological patrimony is fourth on the list of crime in Italy, after arms, drugs and financial crime.
Many of these objects have been looted from tombs and necropoli in Etruria, in central Italy or from the Puglia region.
On show until mid-March I Tesori : La Memoria Ritrovata at Palazzo Qurinale in Rome, an exhibit of over 100 objects found and returned to Italy by the Carabinieri. [...]

Mary Shelley letters discovered in Essex archive

Mary Shelley letters discovered in Essex archive | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Professor finds cache of previously unpublished letters by author of Frankenstein, written between 1831 and 1849


...The letters date between 1831, nine years after the death of her poet husband Percy Bysshe Shelley, and 1849, when Mary Shelley was already unwell with the brain tumour that would kill her two years later, and show a woman who was skilled in charming favours from friends, bursting with pride in and concern for her teenage son – and not unconcerned with frivolities. A last-minute ticket to the coronation of William IV in 1831 necessitated a 3am visit from her hairdresser; she attended the event sporting a plumed headdress ("The whole thing was wondrously splendid – Diamonds & cloth of gold grew common to the eye.")


The later letters, written in an increasingly scrawled hand, are short and distracted, full of apologies for her failing memory and powers. To a number of them is still attached a blob of scarlet wax stamped with the author's own seal – one that was not previously known, according to Crook.

My Antique World: Vintage annuals

My Antique World: Vintage annuals | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The idea of an annual was a canny one if you were a publisher at the turn of the 19th century. Made up from a run of weekly or monthly magazines bound in a plain hard covers, and with a few added extras in the form of the pictorial title pages and advertisements, annuals offered printer-publishers a second chance to engage with their audience. The result was standalone book that seemed fresh and perfectly timed for Christmas.

In 1913, She Told Him They Couldn't Be Together. 100 Years Later, THIS Was Just Discovered.

In 1913, She Told Him They Couldn't Be Together. 100 Years Later, THIS Was Just Discovered. | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

While searching through the attic of his father’s house, a son came across boxes of old items. The most interesting were piles of love letters sent from a man named Max. From 1913-1978, Max and Pearle wrote each other. All his letters begin with “My Sweet Pearle” and end with “Forever yours, Max”. These letters were supposed to have been burned when Pearle passed away in 1980, but the family didn’t honor those wishes, and one of the greatest love stories began to unfold.

In 1911, a woman named Pearle Schwarz met a man named Maxwell Savelle at the Country Club. They fell madly in love. Unfortunately, Maxwell would not convert to Judaism (his parents were Southern Baptists) and so they could not be together. They went their separate ways – Maxwell went into the Navy and Pearle continued to pine for him until she died. She never let go.

My Ancestor's Name: The Quilter Told My Story | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Genealogy is a passion and not a single day in the year passes in which I am not engage in some kind of genealogical activity. Some days I bury myself in census records, and other days, I study the Dawes Roll, Kern Clifton Roll and Dunn Roll from Indian Territory. On another day, Civil War research might take up my time, and a different day might take me to a cemetery as my eyes scan the burial ground for USCT's or benevolent society members from the Mosaic Templars.
Of late, thanks to the inspiration from a fellow genealogist, in Tennessee  I have been nudged to also re-visit another old passion--that of quilting.

Program teaches history via beloved quilter, 'Pioneer Girl' Grace Snyder

Program teaches history via beloved quilter, 'Pioneer Girl' Grace Snyder | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Grace Snyder's lively eyes gaze out of her 1903 wedding photograph. There's an astonishing hat atop her head and a tiny, cat-got-the-cream smile on her lips. She perches just behind her cowboy husband, her clasped hands resting near his left shoulder.


            Her story, in many respects, mirrors Nebraska's history in the late 19thcentury and much of the 20th century.


            Born in 1882, reared in a sod house on a Custer County homestead and married to a Sandhills cowboy and rancher, she recounted her pioneer life in the 1963 book "No Time on My Hands," as told to her daughter, author Nellie Snyder Yost.


            Along the way, she became nationally known for her quilting expertise. Two of her quilts were designated as among the 100 best 20th-century quilts by Quilters Newsletter Magazine in 1999. She was named to the National Quilters Hall of Fame in 1980, two years before her death at 100.


            Now Grace Snyder is the focal point of an innovative new history curriculum developed jointly by NET Learning Services, the International Quilt Study Center and Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Nebraska State Historical Society.


            Called "Tiny Stitches, Big Life," the online multimedia project uses Snyder's quilts and her life experiences to bring pioneer history to life for Nebraska elementary school students. It is the first module of a larger project, "Stories of Nebraska Quilters," with plans to develop additional material about other Nebraskans who are remembered through their quilts.

[T]he project I am currently working on, identifying and researching the First World War collections that we hold, is the one that has most inspired me and captured my interest. From a collection of poems and illustrations made by soldiers whilst they were being treated in Bradford War Hospital, to official minutes from the meetings of Otley’s Belgian Refugee Committee, to personal letters and diaries giving an insight into what life was like during 1914-1918 both at home and at the front; the collections are vast and draw on personal experiences as well as official documentation issued at the time.

In 1932 Hans Jurgensen, who had been active in Democratic Party politics in Queens, New York, was appointed a tally clerk for the United States House of Representatives. He and his assistants kept records on how individual members voted on roll call votes for publication in The Congressional Record. They stamped the information by hand, making about 500,000 registrations per year. Jurgensen concluded that a machine could do the work more efficiently, and ordered this modified bookkeeping machine from the Burroughs Adding Machine Company of Detroit.
