Historical Society Features Jewelry Of Marriage

Join antique and vintage jewelry enthusiast Nancy Cooper, on Sun., Oct. 23 at 1:30 p.m. at Acorn Hall for the Jewelry of Marriage, a special limited-engagement, guided presentation on the exquisite jewelry and historic wedding gowns of Fine, Fancy, and Fashionable: 125 Years Dressing the Bride.
This presentation will include clothing recently added to the exhibit. Cooper, a longtime MCHS volunteer, shares her passion, knowledge, and collection of jewelry which includes cameos, brooches, necklaces, watches, and crosses; even one embellished with human hair.
The presentation offers an in-depth look at the wedding gowns and bridal attire in the exhibit and a glimpse of the people who wore them. It is also part of the Jeanne Watson Memorial Speakers Program, a continuing lecture series created by the Morris County Historical Society in honor of Jeanne Hamilton Watson, first executive director of the MCHS, 1980 – 1996.

Space is limited to attend this presentation, which is being held on the final day of the exhibit. Pre-payment is required upon making a reservation. Call the MCHS at 973-267-3465 or email, mchsacornhall@gmail.com.
Cost to attend is $15 per adult, $12 per senior, $7 per student, and free for MCHS members. The admission price may be applied toward a membership with the MCHS. Following the program, the Oak Leaf Gallery Gift Shop, with its selection of vintage and Victorian-inspired jewelry, will be available.
