This weekend, I went to the The Edwardian Ball & World's Faire 2011, held in San Francisco's Regency Ballroom (built 1909) on January 21 and 22, celebrating macabre mid-century storybook illustrator Edward Gorey, as well as Edwardian, Victorian, and Roaring Twenties fashion.
Their Cabinets of Curiosity & Natural Wonders contained many wonderful (and creepy!) things, including this awesome lamp, an antique wheelchair, a scale, and a birdcage. Behind the web of antique lace and linen you can see the beautiful ceiling of the Regency Ballroom.
