Badge from the Madame C. J. Walker Convention, 1920s. Walker (1867-1919) was an African American entrepreneur who manufactured, distributed, and sold hair care products specifically for black women. This badge signified its bearer’s accreditation as a “hair culturist” at one of Walker’s beauty training events, one of her novel methods of marketing, but also a means of providing other Black women like her with a means of income. ⭐ @NMAAHC

Saltcellar made in Sierra Leone, ivory, 15th-16th century. This object attests to the encounter of Portuguese and West African people five centuries ago. The carving was done by skilled regional artisans to suit the preferences of European traders, who commissioned objects like these for their patrons. The design combines European and African motifs. 🧂 @metmuseum ⁠

Can anyone tell me what these are? I know they are from the National Recovery Administration souvenir but I'm not sure exactly what they are. I have been told they appear to be targets from the worlds Fair. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Anyone have the Dec. 2002 , page 26 article ? I would be very interested in viewing it - thankyou
I would be interested in the valued opinions of your readers regarding the acceptability/prestige of utilizing “artificial” flowers especially on the dining room table. Of course, visiting the florist daily is absurd. Personally, I lean anti, but what to put in its place. Thank you.
