Seventeenth-Century William and Mary Furniture: A Brave New World

July 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Connecticut Historical Society, 1 Elizabeth Street
Hartford, CT 06105 United States
+ Google Map
$15

How did English craftsmen adapt to New World conditions in 17th-century New England? When English craftsmen settled in the Northeast, they brought with them a furniture making tradition that was centuries old.  But they were faced with a wholly new environment.  Whereas in England, furniture makers faced a scarcity of materials and an abundance of available labor, the opposite was true in New England where there were few craftsmen and abundant materials. Within seven decades, the craftsmen in New England were leaving behind a world of medieval joinery and entering the new world of commerce, international trade, and an increasing reliance on technology. $10 for CHS members, $15 for non-members, free with subscription for members of the CHS Decorative Arts Council. Please help us serve our guests better by pre-registering at rsvp@chs.org or by calling 860-236-5621, ext. 238. Questions? Contact Natalie Belanger, Adult Programs Manager, at Natalie_Belanger@chs.org or 860-236-5621 ext. 289. About the Speaker Nancy Carlisle is Senior Curator of Collections at Historic New England where she has worked for more than thirty years. Through her research, writings, and public programs, she uses stories drawn from the collections to engage people in a deeper understanding of their own histories. She is the author of the award-winning book Cherished Possessions: A New England Legacy and the co-author with Melinda Nasardinov of America’s Kitchens. Ms. Carlisle has written and lectured widely on the material culture of domestic life from the seventeenth century to the twenty-first.
