Virtual Lecture – “Ordering from the Director”: Studies in Colonial Period American Furniture
November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join presenter Tony Zecca for an overview of Colonial Period American furniture. He will show what a wealthy patron should expect when ordering furniture from a cabinetmaker’s shop. You will look at the different Directors, or design books, that would have been used in the period and compare examples that appear in the book and in current collections. Tony enthusiastically shares his experiences as a collector, and education volunteer at Mount Vernon.
