The Flowering of American Tinware

Recurring daily
Next Event: Sun, May 04, 2014

This pocket-size exhibition highlights the collection of decorated tinware that Henry Francis du Pont acquired from antiques dealers in New England and Pennsylvania, particularly from Ephrata, Lancaster, Carlisle, and York. These beautiful, hand-painted objects feature decorative techniques that have been in use from the early 1700s to today, and include cups, coffee pots, toys, and household items, brightly colored and hand painted with fruit, flowers, birds, and borders.
