The Here, There, and Everywhere Collection-In Venice

No, not Venice, California.  Literature is full of stories of rich Americans headed off for a life along the canals.  In my last post, I wondered if this collection was the maid's or her employer's.  My mother and her brother were servants.  When her bosses traveled, she stayed at home, but her brother went with the family.  In the last post I promised a clue, and that clue comes from my mother's experience My mother was a parlor maid and wore a uniform like the one in the last post.  Ladies maids and valets, like my uncle, traveled, parlor maids stayed behind.
