  1. A seventeenth-century pomander and chain
  2. A parcel-gilt silver pomander, made in Italy in the 16th century; features a niello inscription
  3. Pomander, gold filigree, enclosing a ball of ambergris. 1600-1700
  4. Gold and Silver Pomander, 16th Century
***Pomandera ball made of perfumes, such as ambergris (whence the name),musk, or civet. The pomander was worn or carried in a vase, also known by the same name, as a protection against infection in times of pestilence or merely as a useful article to modify bad smells. The globular cases which contained the pomanders were hung from a neck-chain or belt, or attached to the girdle, and were usually perforated and made of gold or silver. Sometimes they contained several partitions, in each of which was placed a different perfume.

Big Fat Deal: The Big Ballet is a troupe of dancers from Russia who weigh a minimum of 220 pounds each.

Because the ballet tag features too many people of only one body type.  Let’s not pretend you need to be a certain weight to be able to perform fouetté en tournant.


This is for my mom, who told me when I was seven years old that I was too fat to be a ballerina.

Fuck yes!!!! This is happening in Cuba, too!

Hats by Sally Victor.

Via the Metropolitan Museum of Art — During the 1930s, ’40s and the early ’50s, when hats were considered required accessories for well-dressed women, Sally Victor was among the foremost American milliners. Creative and very successful for almost 40 years, Victor began her prolific millinery career in 1927. She was one of the original members of the Edward C. Blum Design Laboratory, and often used the Brooklyn Museum’s varied collections to draw inspiration for her designs. She was so connected with the Design Lab that she participated in several collaborative exhibitions and the museum often used her designs in publicity materials to exemplify how the Lab could benefit designers by providing inspiration. Her work is characterized by a special quirkiness that could often be traced back to interesting sources such as Native American tribes, the artist Henri Matisse or Japanese armor. She also combined traditional hat-making materials such as felt and silk with new synthetic materials in unique ways. According to her May 16, 1977 obituary in the “New York Times,” Victor described her mission simply as “designing pretty hats that make women look prettier.”
