This week I’ve accessioned a collection of 1930s women’s lingerie. Mostly slips. The embroidery is very detailed, and they really are quite lovely, so although it’s been a bit tedious sewing accession numbers into them, I’m happy with how everything has turned out.
We have some other pieces that would go well with the collection so I’m thinking about doing an “underwear” exhibit in the fall. Our research files are full of old ads just like this. I think it could work. Thoughts?
