I’ve been looking forward to the Bowers Museum for months now, ever since I first saw the current exhibits – Fabergé and Madeleine Albright’s “Read My Pins” collection – listed on the website. We’ve been there once before, just before we left for Berlin, but I don’t know much about the place or how it came upon two such wonderful exhibits, but I’m very glad. It gave us a chance to have a “normal” day.
The exhibits were the perfect size – just big enough to feel we really saw something, but not too much for S. And, of course, she was very in favor of seeing all of the “jew-wuh-wee.”
As you can see, she even wore some of her own.
This was my favorite, the Empress Josephine tiara, commissioned for her as a present by the Tsar Nicholas II upon her divorce from Napoleon.
Despite the many carats and colors of enamel, this was still S’s absolute favorite part of the museum…
