We invite you to browse the April American Furniture & Decorative Arts auction which offers an opportunity to acquire fine early American urban-made furniture from two Massachusetts private collections, the roots of which began in the 1930s and which represent over a hundred years of combined connoisseurship. Furniture deaccessioned from Historic Deerfield complements the group with a number of more vernacular pieces.
We asked partner, and Director of American Furniture & Decorative Arts, Stephen Fletcher to guide us through the auction and introduce some of his favorite highlights from the upcoming auction which is open for bidding through April 13.
