Behind-the-Ropes: Insider’s Tours of the Merchant’s House Second in a Series – Changing Tastes in 19th Century Furniture
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Join us for a series of “behind the ropes” tours of the Merchant’s House. From late Federal to Greek Revival, Duncan Phyfe to Rococo Revival, whale oil to gas to kerosene, you’ll gain new perspectives on these unique insider’s tours, learning about changing period styles and technologies and how they reflect the attitudes and values of the merchant class in mid-19th century New York City.
Changing Tastes in 19th Century Furniture. We’ll explore in detail the finer points of the original Tredwell family collection of furniture and what it tells us about both the tastes and values of Antebellum New Yorkers and how growing international connections made lasting impact on design, trade, and international relations.
