Ornate 1888 horse-shoe-shaped shell art wreath made by poet Ina Donna Coolbrith in upper left corner. In upper right corner is a portrait of Ina Donna Coolbrith from the frontispiece of her book Songs from the Golden Gate, 1895. The lower portion of the page is an article discussing In Coolbrith making the wreath ["Heirloom Shows Poetess' Art," Los Angeles Times, October 12, 1953]. At the time of this photograph the wreath belonged to the Perrys' nephew John H. Crum of Santa Monica. The shell wreath is an example of Victorian era domestic crafts.
