Look at this amazing antique Dinner Menu from the Ocean Bluff Hotel! Why they chose to use a magnificent drawing of a lady riding aside puzzles me...but no matter... what a lovely collectible!
..and this is an antique enameled Vesta Case.
Can't you just see the beautiful calling cards that this case once held? Opps - I have been corrected. A vesta case was used to hold matches - not calling cards.
..and here is an antique that has nothing to do with sidesaddle, riding or horses.. this is a piece I went to an auction to buy... only to find out it was a part of a 3 piece set. Alas I did not have room for the other 2 pieces, so there I sat.. melancholy and pouting as I watched my beautiful Victorian dressing mirror with lingerie drawers go to another bidder....and YES.. I am still pouting..
