A Tradition of Craft
Until September 8, 2012, the Connecticut Historical Society is exhibiting recent furniture made by members of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers. (You got a sneak preview yesterday.) The exhibition includes 34 pieces crafted by SAPFM members, paired with counterpart models and inspirations from the CHS collection.
In the photograph above, the chair on the left was made in 2009 by John Rexroad, a craftsman from Killingworth, Connecticut. His model was the 1781 chair on the right by Eliphalet Chapin of East Windsor, Connecticut.
