In 1898, Miss Bellhouse got an invitation to the 50th wedding anniversary party of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Rawson. With her invitation came this silver-gilt floral-spray tiara. She saved it in its original box and put it away. The silent moment as she packed it away and closed her drawer, knowing her treasure was safe, stays with me. I bought this from Bath Antiques Online as a private sale for $400 in 2003.
