The Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala are the gardens off famous Swedish 18th century botanist Carl von Linné, and the oldest botanical garden in Sweden. The gardens, and Linné’s summer house Hammarby are open to the public and seem to have 18th century events every now and then. This Sunday, August 15, there will be an 18th century market that I hope to go to. The calendar of events is only available in Swedish.
Fashion and culture from the 1700s.
This exhibition features costume accessories from the late seventeenth through the early nineteenth century. Women and men enhanced their appearance with the addition of hats, purses, jewelry, shoes, and more. These objects kept pace with change in fashion and present a visually rich overview of the period.
There’s also a video presenting the exhibition.
I would love to go to Colonial Williamsburg some day and I hope I’ll get to go before this exhibition ends. It runs from January 29, 2011 through December 31, 2012.
In London I also visited the Museum of Childhood, which had a few 18th century children’s clothes on display, and a doll from 1780 with a full set of undergarments and even a tiny chatelaine. Click the picture above to go to a flickr set with my photos from the museum.
I was just in London and among other things I visited the Victoria and Albert Museum. There are plenty of 18th century clothes on display at the museum, scattered into many different exhibitions, and I took photos of most. Click the picture above to go to a Flickr set with my photos from the V&A.
Thanks! I’m glad you like it!
