The Treasure Tour hosts wonderful collections, amazing collections, beautiful items, fun and fanciful pieces and, occasionally, downright wacky stuff. It being Wednesday, the blog gets to focus on some of the more odd pieces in the collection. Because, you know, Wednesday. Today, we are honored to introduce to you the best tour guide we have here at the Treasure Tour. His name is Phineas, and he is always there, ready and waiting for our guests to come off the elevator. Odd thing about Phineas is that he doesn't have a lot to say for a tour guide. We think he may be on a silent strike, but we don't know what - if anything - he's protesting, and we don't know what he hopes to accomplish by protesting it. So we just leave him be.
One notable thing about Phineas is his outfit. He wears a jabot (pronounced zha-boe) around his neck, which is frilly fashion almost never seen anymore. Your best chance to see someone famous styling one is none other than Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, an iconic member of the United States Supreme Court. We're hoping Phineas achieves celebrity status soon. We'll wait.
