This great article features an 1840′s miniature butcher shop, complete with a series of strung-up meats.
A few different theories surround this incredible creation. Some believe it was intended for presumably less squeamish children of the Victorian era, while others call attention to the popular trend of miniatures for adults at the time. Either way, it’s an intriguing artifact.
This 1900 model, on the other hand, was made by esteemed German toymaker Christian Hacker (definitely intended for children):

I’m the kind of girl who stumbles upon pictures of The Barbie Dream Hearse by accident amidst my regular web perusals.

I don’t have any immediate plans to be in the Seattle area (though I’d like to visit), but this shirt is going my wish list.
Has anyone ridden in the Barbie Dream Hearse? If so, I’d love to hear about it.

Vanessie Art Dolls are the work of the talented Esther Verschoor.
The dolls and outfits are hand crafted from a wide variety of materials. And all real skulls are from animals who have died of natural causes (never killed for food, fur or human use).

Fans of interesting taxidermy and Gothic/Victorian fashion will love these pieces.
There are so many lovely things to look at in the Vanessie galleries. Have a look!
I believe I got this from A Wren’s Life’s Pinterest. Why aren’t there more images of people wrestling Death on medical packaging these days?
