This past year has brought many changes and while making stays and researching stays has been ongoing, blogging has lagged behind. Will try and catch up with some new images and information.
Three new pages have been created, the first is the documentation of the process of recreating a pair of 17th century stays for an exhibit at Pilgrim Hall in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Yellow silk covered stays, c 1670.
The other is a page devoted to capturing images from online auctions of stays, which once purchased are lost to researchers.
These stays were at auction on Ebay.
The third new page is a listing of online images of original stays in museum collections.
