We are very proud to announce that also this year The Sisters’ Room is collaborating with the Brontë Parsonage Museum. On the last Friday of each month we will publish special contents curated by the experts of the museum. Let’s have a look at what’s inside the closets, drawers and cupboards at the Parsonage. You will find in this section some of the objects that belonged to the Brontë family and which are kept in the Brontë Parsonage Museum archives. Enjoy this new article!
These colourful moccasins are believed to have been worn by Charlotte. They were left at the guesthouse in Scarborough where Anne died in May 1849. The moccasins are made from moose skin and velvet with glass and opaque beads.
