Dressing Downton Display at Cheekwood Features Downton Bears, Doll Accessories


A visit to see the lavish Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times exhibit at Cheekwood Mansion in Nashville  promised to be a day of fashion and history. What I didn't expect was to find cute Downton Abbey dressed bears as well as small doll-sized accessories from the 1930s!

The set of three bears was displayed twice, so here are both displays so you get the bears at two different angles. Small accessories included small serving pieces and small hats of the era made into what may have been pin cushions but just begged to be reassembled atop some lucky doll's head!

If Dressing Downton comes to your area and there is a gift shop involved, check it out. The display will teach you more about fashion and you might find some doll-sized goodies in the gift store!

Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times runs June 17 through September 10 at Cheekwood Mansion in the Belle Meade area of Nashville. For more information about Dressing Downton in Nashville, visit cheekwood.org.
