Pearson, 2015.014.01)Among the more than 10,000 objects in the Pasadena Museum of History’s collection is a silver-mounted vase donated by the Estate of Mary M. Pearson. The ceramic vase is adorned with flowers and other motifs that are covered with a clear, high-gloss, iris glaze. This Art Nouveau-style object was created around 1892 by the Rookwood Pottery Company, a Cincinnati-based firm known for the excellent quality of its products.Although the vase was a good example of Rookwood’s work, Director of Collections Laura Verlaque initially had some misgivings about adding it to the museum’s collection because the pottery firm was not based in Pasadena.Postcard showing the Fleming residence between the Aldophus Busch and Thaddeus Lowe houses on Orange Grove Avenue, early 20th century. Image courtesy of Pasadena Museum of History (Postcard Collection)However, Pearson inherited the vase from a family member who was a practical nurse for lumber baron Arthur Fleming, who prominently displayed the vase in his Arts-and-Crafts-style mansion at 1003 S. Orange Grove Avenue. (The residence has since been demolished). Verlaque determined the vase typified the furnishings in the street’s numerous turn-of-the-20th-century mansions, so it was eligible for PMH’s collection.Museum officials must make similar decisions about all of the items it accessions (adds) to its collections. “We don’t accept an item just because it’s old or it was used in someone’s household,” explains Verlaque. “It has to tell the story of Pasadena.”PMH’s Collections Development and Management Policy specifies that collections shall “concentrate on materials unique to the Pasadena area, i.e., items created in or for Pasadena; represent Pasadenan lifestyles; and encompass the area’s early history to the present.” According to the policy, PMH will collect materials:• “documenting the community’s heritage”;• “relevant to the PMH mission statement and purpose as evidence through document provenance and/or historical research”;• “associated with individuals, buildings, businesses, events and organizations that are or have been active within Pasadena and its neighboring communities;” and• “typical or representative of items made and/or used in Pasadena.”Like most museums, PMH has more donations than it has space for its collections. “Once we accession an object, we are legally bound to care for it,” explains Verlaque, “and it has to be maintained here for at least three years before it’s deaccessioned” (removed from the collection). PMH also has limited funding to conserve the items in its collections.For this reason, PMH will often ask patrons to provide money for the storage and maintenance of donated items. PMH will reject gifts if they are in poor condition; for example, clothing and textiles should be dry-cleaned before they are donated to ensure they are not infested with insects.Pasadena Museum of History maintains four collections related to the history of Pasadena: the print, photographic, audio/visual and other materials available in the Research Library and Archives; the Textile and Costume Collection; the Object Collection; and the Fenyes-Curtin-Paloheimo Collection, comprised of the contents of the Fenyes Mansion, including the books, textiles, household objects, decorative arts and fine arts and the family archival papers.For more information, visit pasadenahistory.org/collections-spotlight/. 12 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it center_img Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  First Heatwave Expected Next Week Business News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS HerbeautyIs It Normal To Date Your BFF’s Ex?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyVictoria’s Secret Model’s Tips For Looking Ultra SexyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Vietnamese Stunners That Will Take Your Breath AwayHerbeautyHerbeauty Your email address will not be published.

As the UK Stock Market continues to tumble and uncertainty abounds in response to the world’s coronavirus pandemic, there’s an eery similarity to the 1929 stock market crash on Wall Street.The 1929 stock market crash, or Great Crash, is considered to be the most destructive stock market crash in US history, mainly because it signalled the start of the Great Depression. A big crash on the London Stock Exchange also preceded it on September 20 1929.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Financial pandemoniumCovid-19 is bad news for stocks as well as a tragedy for people. The world’s financial markets have rarely seen such turmoil across the board. The FTSE 100 fell 7.7% a week ago on March 9, three days later it fell 10.9% and today it’s down 7.7% as I write.The Fed yesterday cut interest rates to zero and The Bank of England cut its interest rate to 0.25% last week. The government has pledged billions of pounds to help businesses and individuals cope with the downturn, but none of it appears to be making any difference and the stock markets continue to fall.Bargain sharesAs the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 crash, many companies are looking at an uncertain future. I think dividend cuts are on the cards and some businesses may well face go under as they did in the 1929 stock market crash.However, the FTSE is full of strong businesses and I do think many companies will survive. At the Fool, we take a long-term view of investing and this is a time to look to buy such businesses for the future, possibly the distant future.I’d avoid oil stocks and any firms with high levels of debt. I don’t think we’ve reached the bottom of the crash yet, so it’s a time to be researching and creating a watchlist of good quality companies to buy when the market shows signs of recovery.I think a global recession is now likely, as is an extended bear market. For active investors, this doesn’t have to be as bad as it may sound.Long-term investing should be for a period of years. It’s about buying shares in good quality companies that can stand the test of time. Although the market may have further to fall, as it did in the 1929 stock market crash, this means overpriced companies become affordable and strong businesses become value plays.Seek safe sectorsThe demise of FlyBe and the spectacular Cineworld share price fall (down 75% in a month) are clear warnings for their sectors. Meanwhile, the Tesco share price hasn’t suffered too badly in comparison, down 14% in a month. It’s well placed to cater to the panic-buying masses and geared to provide its grocery home-delivery service to those in self-isolation, unlike the budget supermarkets, Lidl and Aldi.The Reckitt Benckiser share price is down 16% in a month but as the maker of Dettol, it looks to be experiencing heightened demand for some of its products.I’d be wary of buying any of these stocks too soon though, in case the market has further to fall. But I think it’s wise to be researching good buys for the future.There are many top quality companies on the FTSE 350 but even if this does end up being as bad as the 1929 stock market crash, it will eventually recover and savvy investors will have made their fortunes. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay The FTSE 100 crash continues, reminiscent of the 1929 stock market crash!center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.
