Life’s little luxuries speak more of generosity than extravagance, when the joy they bring endures through the years. The stunning collection we offer here—rich in beauty, design and craftsmanship—reflects the wealth of holdings in our National Museum of American History, particularly the fancy apparel in its costume collection and the iconic clothing and jewelry of Jackie Kennedy in its First Ladies exhibit.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
