Jon Crispin's Notebook

Willard Suitcases / Nora M

Even though I am in South Carolina taking a short break, I’m still trying to get quite a bit of editing done on the suitcases project.  Nora M’s cases are pretty amazing.

The above shot is a great example of how the museum conserved and catalogued each item in the collection.  In the photo below you can see how Peg and I unwrapped and set up Nora’s cutlery.

In the past few days I have been able to upload several more cases to willardsuitcases.com, so please go check them out.  On the main page, click on “The Cases” at the top of the page.  There are quite a few shots on Nora’s page, so be sure to click “view: all” underneath the “Add To Cart” button.

Have a great week everyone and thanks for following.

    John your willard site is very impressive! Good to see so many of the familiar objects.

    Nora’s case is also quite fascinating, you could draw many conclusions about this lady just by looking at some of her possessions but then some of the things don’t add up with the other things. Very interesting indeed. Do you know if the knives in the cutlery set are Sheffield Steel?

      I didn’t look too closely at the cutlery, but it definitely wasn’t silver. Maybe silver plate. I doubt if it came from Sheffield.
