About This Item

Three delicately cut paper hearts (in green, pink and gold) loosely inserted in to folded paper pocket, titled as above.


A souvenir of the Bury Charity Fair held at Bury St Edmunds in 1830.

Lady Ann Cullum (1807-1875) of Hardwick House in Suffolk was clearly producing clever scissors work with coloured paper some of the examples were then no doubt purchased by Ellenor Jane Lathbury (d. 1859). She was a daughter of the Rev. Peter Lathbury, Rector of Rector of Livermere Magna - incidentally the ghost story writer M.R James was brought up at the rectory there - and Parva. Probably Ann and Ellenor knew each other quite well for Lady Callum's father-in-law and Peter Lathbury sat together dispensing justice through the Bury magistrates court earlier in the century.

Such delicate and dextrous handwork, considered trivial as much such handicraft was, survives rather precariously today.
