A Victorian Tradition in the Modern World Guest: Beth Beverly, couture taxidermist, and owner, Diamond Tooth Taxidermy, Philadelphia Taxidermy is so much more than stuffed game for mountain lodges. In her ornate hats and stoles, this couture taxidermist revives a Victorian tradition that features animals in unusual display—take for example the hat that sports a goose with wings spread wide. The perfect finishing touch for your Kentucky Derby outfit. Restoring Antique Curiosities Guest: Brittany Cox, antiquarian horologist, and founder, Memoria Technica, Seattle Cox restores antique clockwork and curiosities. Her favorites are tiny automaton birds.
