Tunbridge chest, Christening Gown, Souvenirs and
Mementos of Helen Eliza Moody Rebbeck
Memento of Helen Eliza Moody Rebbeck.
This Tunbridgeware miniature
chest of drawers contained (and still does) the treasures of the
past in the form of greetings cards some of which can be seen in
the open drawer. Also in this chest, but now in a filing cabinet,
were the Last Will and Testament of Maria Rebbeck and the letter
from Argentina. The letter was from John Moody to his sister and
is very fragile being over 120 years old.
Rebbeck Christening Gown made from a bolt of india cotten and embroidered
with broderie anglais by Helen Eliza Moody Rebbeck.
Pictured here in 1883 for the Christening of Sharon
of Scotland - Helen Eliza's or Alice Rebbeck Brenton's?
Alice certainly had a brooch of a Black Watch
sporran which may have been a gift from Edgar Brenton or a mememto
of her mother.
Eliza's glass rolling pin. History says it was presented to her fullof
salt as there was a cork in one end while the other is sealed. The
enamal decoration has worn off over the years because it was used
filled with cold water.
