The Cabinetmaker and the Carver: Boston Furniture from Private Collections


Boston has been the home of an important furniture trade since the mid-17th century. As a partner of the Four Centuries of Massachusetts Furniture collaborative project, the MHS presents The Cabinetmaker and the Carver: Boston Furniture from Private Collections, an exhibition covering several centuries of a rich and varied furniture-making tradition with an emphasis on a selection of important objects from private collections that are rarely seen by the public. Supplemented with complementary materials from the Society’s extraordinary collections—including relevant portraits, account books and ledgers, inventories, trade cards, and bill heads—the exhibition will explore furniture as history and provide a look at Boston’s distinctive urban tradition.
