Yesterday--Found Things

Yesterday I went out prop hunting and stopped by one of my favorite resale shops. There I found a framed Emerson quote and a Phrenology bust. The Phrenology bust turned out to be quite a find. Research unearthed that these unusual pieces were given to doctors in the late 50s and 60s by pharmaceutical companies and were signed Boehm (fine porcelain).

This piece of antique lace is beaded with mother of pearl beads. I have never seen beading done using mother of pearl beads before. I wonder what this unique, detailed piece was made for--an evening purse, a bridal gown?
