    I'm going to place an order for the first pair of carriage boots.

    I'm sure they'll go with my moleskins, tattersall check shirt and cap! Should I post in another thread to ask COTHers opinion??

    The foot warmer is very different to the sort we had and what I've got. Though I see that's quite recent and so new. I've got 3 originals and 1 repro. Mine are basically boxes (brass, porcelain or wood) that you fill with either hot water or hot sand and then you rest your feet on top of them.

    So Cool-- I'll take one of each please. But please make the fur objects out of faux fur. I especially like the 1820s bonnet- so Jane Austen.

    Those pictures were really great. Thanks for sharing.

    I want this http://www.metmuseum.org/works_of_ar...vT=1&hi=0&ov=0

    love the color, so same color is just fine.
    I also want that foot warmer. I have a leopard muff that has been handed down. The foot warmer would complete the ensemble. I have the cape, so all set there. I will be toasty in my sleigh!
