1860s Victorian House: Bedroom.

...Miss Schaeffer found, upon her toilet-table, a kid case inclosing a tiny diamond spray--stem and leaf and half-blown blossom--the diamonds looking up at her, in their immortal freshness, and seeming to hang on their thread of filigrane like the very dew of the morning: she Almost expected that they would shake before her breath, blow away, and vanish into the great reservoir of vapor, light, and color.
...Madeleine Schaeffer from Harper's Monthly, pg. 50, June, 1862.
