I left off with the reproduction shift and its corresponding text panel yesterday. Now, I'll continue through the exhibit to my favorite pieces, the 17th century bodice and its reproduction, the tiny lace stomacher, the 18th century stays, and the 3 busks that range from 17th to early 19th century.

And finally, the busks!
|All are intricately carved. Note the bend in the ivory!|
I hope you enjoyed a look at the exhibit, and I encourage you to visit and see these artifacts in person. The museum is open 7 days a week, 9:30-4:30, and the show is up until December 31st.
