This section is for small items that a person can carry or wear. From purses to fans to umbrellas, combs and jewellery.
Such items change in style and form from one time and place to another. A renaissance fan was quite different to the more familiar one with retracting blades. I looked more like a small flag on a stick. A medieval comb was usually made of bone and two-sided.
Ness Reproductions has several items of this type for the nineteenth century but the site seems to be down.

Elizabeth I collar by Chris Cox
An elaborate jewelled necklace based on one in a portrait of Queen Elizabeth I of England. Versions for V3 and V4.
Victorian Jet Necklace and Earrings by Chris Cox
A set of Victorian mourning jewellery, worn for some time after a decease by bereaved relatives. How long you stayed in mourning depended on how close you were as a relative. Mourning had rules for dress and behaviour with stages to mark the bereaved's return to the everyday world. Much of the jet came from the Whitby area in Yorkshire, a town also famous for death of another kind - Stoker's Dracula was set there.
Art Nouveau Hair Jewellery by Chris Cox
A set of hair combs with an Art Nouveau leaf design in silver. For the very fashionable lady c. 1890-1920.
