Can fans ever get enough of
"Costumes of Downton Abbey" opens March 1 at the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library near Wilmington, Del. It will contrast the "Downton" duds -- items such as Lady Sybil's harem pants, Lady Mary's engagement dress and the ill-fated wedding dress of Lady Edith -- with clothes and decorative items such as an 1874 Tiffany silver tea set at the du Pont house.
The exhibit plus lectures and other events will provide a window on 20th century country life in the fictional artistocratic British family and the real-life stateside du Pont family. The museum features furniture, ceramics and glass items, paintings, prints and more items that were collected by du Pont, great-grandson of the chemical company founder. The house is backed by 1,000 acres of woods and gardens.
Tickets to Winterthur cost $20 for adults, $5 for children 2 to 11. The exhibit continues through Jan. 5, 2015. The fourth season of the PBS "Masterpiece" series makes its U.S. debut on Jan. 5.)
