This work marks a new direction in the study of decorative arts and belongs in every collector s library. In a lively and readable text, Historic New England curator Nancy Carlisle, a nationally recognized expert in the study of American material culture, offers poignant stories of both famous and forgotten players in New England s story. She presents more than 175 visually stunning objects, examines their roles as beloved treasures in peoples lives, and shows how they give us a nuanced perspective on the past. The objects are selected from one of the nation s most important collections of fine and decorative arts, that of Historic New England, a museum of cultural history with 35 historic house museums across the region. The collections, which include more than 120,000 objects and half a million photographs, are the most important in the nation for the study of New England material life. This beautifully illustrated and engagingly written catalogue of Historic New England s finest holdings provides new evidence of the way the objects with which we surround ourselves reflect both who we are and where we are from. Over three hundred full-color photographs and fifty black and white images."
