Today’s animation is a cotton spool box from the Ware Neck Store. The box was provided to the Virtual Curation Laboratory by visitors from the Fairfield Foundation, which is located in Gloucester, Virginia. Rebecca Guest, a VCU student who volunteers at the Fairfield Foundation, is currently interning at the Virginia Association of Museums (VAM). Her first blog for VAM discusses this and other artifacts.
