Extended to August 25, 2019, the curio cabinet exhibit is featured in the Van Kirk Homestead Parlor as an adjunct to the Victorian theme of this period room. The exhibit offers a view of jewelry worn during the Victorian era, which was divided into an early, middle, and late period. The featured jewelry demonstrates the distinct form of style and design that evolved in Europe and America during this era.
Selections are on loan from the Joyce Simmons collection with additions from the Sparta Historical Society and Centenary University. Small group lectures for those interested in Victoriana are available. Call 973-726-0883 and leave a message for a group reservation.
