Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #41

March 2, 2012


Earlier this week Ellen Denker, our lovely Decorative Arts Contract Curator, bid us a visit. This trip she spent time looking at objects currently and historically on view in both the Dining Room and Library. This included everything from sconces and girandoles to commodes and footstools. Chloe and I set up a workstation with Ellen on the Lake Porch. We transported easily movable objects to us, but for larger items we went to them. Ellen looked at about 70 objects from the two rooms.

It is always a delight to find out new information about items in the Historic House.
