Crown made by Mary Allen in 1937


September 22, 2022

It should be known that England is not the only place that celebrates queens. Petersburg Prom Queen Charlotte Clausen wore this crown made by Mary Allen in 1937. Charlotte was the second Prom Queen for the event when it was held in the gymnasium at Petersburg High School. Carefully crafted from the gold foil paper used in wrapping Miss Saylor's Chocolates, a candy company which operated from 1920 to 1973, this royal creation features imitation pearls and colored glass "jewels." Though Charlotte's reign was a short one, she certainly celebrated in style! Collected by Elsie Clausen.
