Collecting Silent Film Stars: Annette Kellerman | Inherited Values | Herstory | Scoop.it

Being the fan that I am (both of the collector and silent film), I couldn’t just let Mary Ann Cade go that easily after delivering her recent silent film news — I had to ask her about one of her favorite silent film stars, Annette Kellerman (also billed as Annette Kellermann and called “The Perfect Woman”).

Pair of Fine Victorian Face Screens, Chromolithograph Images - The Vintage Village

Pair of Fine Victorian Face Screens, Chromolithograph Images - The Vintage Village | Herstory | Scoop.it

I have never seen anything like this, didn't even know they existed. This is such a piece of history. I can just picture a fair lady sitting by the fire and fanning herself. What a treasure!

 

Face Screens were used by Victorian Ladies to shield their faces from a hot fire. As most Victorian utilitarian items, face screens were beautifully decorated. Each of these face screens is made from cardboard. The shape of the screen is cut in an intricate design. The center portion of the screens, each have a Chromolithograph image of Colonial groupings. The round image has braid to frame the image. The handles are a work of art in themselves with the delicate turnings. Tiny wing nuts secure the screens to the handles, Both screens are in similar condition. The cardboard frames are worn on the edges. There is some water damage to the frames as well as the center mat. One screen has a piece of the braid missing. The image boards are secured to the frames with tape. This is could be replaced. The wood handles are in excellent condition. The price is for the pair of screens. Each screen measures 16" x 7".

The Mass Observation project was a government led project that aimed to record everyday life in Britain using around 500 volunteer ‘observers’ who either kept diaries or replied to open-ended questionnaires. The project kicked off in August 1939 when Mass Observation invited members of the public to record and send them a day to day account of their lives in the form of a diary.

Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls)

Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls) | Herstory | Scoop.it

In 1972, the Ms. Foundation for Women produced Free to Be… You and Me, an illustrated book and record album set. Initiated by Marlo Thomas, the mission of the Free to Be… You and Me project was to provide healthy messages refuting and rejecting gender stereotypes while encouraging the positive and empowering post-1960s ideas of gender equality, individuality, comfort with one’s identity, and tolerance. Using her celebrity clout, Marlo Thomas got a number of her celebrity friends to create, write, and perform the modern day lessons to children in song and story form. No doubt the hope was that the parents and other adults in children’s lives were listening — and learning — too.

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

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