Virtual Behind-the-Ropes Tour: Changing Tastes in 19th Century Furniture
Virtual Behind-the-Ropes Tour: Changing Tastes in 19th Century Furniture With board member Anthony Bellov and furniture expert Carswell Rush Berlin
This unique virtual tour offers a close look at the Tredwell family furniture collection, examining pieces bought for this house, as well as those brought from their previous home. You’ll learn about both the tastes and values of mid-19th century New Yorkers and how growing international connections made lasting impact on design, trade, and international relations. It’s an extraordinary up-close and personal experience of the Tredwell home you won’t want to miss –– behind the ropes and no stairs to climb!
$10, MHM Members FREE.
Anthony Bellov: Bachelor’s in Architecture from Pratt Institute, Graduate in Museum Leadership from Bank Street College of Education, long-time volunteer and board member of the Merchant’s House Museum and an aficionado in 19th Century American Decorative Arts and Architecture.
