The exhibition celebrates both Chippendale’s legacy and the iconic style he helped promote through a number of English and American Rococo decorative art forms from Historic Deerfield’s rich collection.
The Helen Geier Flynt Textile Gallery showcases Historic Deerfield's important collection of fashion, needlework, and domestic textiles. The core of the collection was assembled through the efforts of one of the museum's founders, Helen Geier Flynt (1895-1986). Considered one of the finest collections in America, the collection contains items dating from the late 17th century through the mid-20th century.
Seating and case furniture made in Massachusetts before the 1840s is as varied as the craftsmen and consumers who created it. From Beacon Hill to the Berkshires, the extremes test the richness of the whole region.
Explore a dazzling array of masterworks by famous American cabinetmakers including Duncan Phyfe and Honoré Lannuier, Samuel McIntire, John and Thomas Seymour, and John Townsend.
One of the finest assemblages of this indigenous and unique American art form ever presented are on exhibit.
Formal and informal clothing, accessories, make up, hair care, and perfume or cologne, all contribute to our self-fashioning, and the impressions we give to others. Historic Deerfield explores this concept in a special, 8-week fall exhibition of early 19th-century clothing and accessories. Examples of men’s and women’s dress from the collection will be on view in the Stebbins House and Williams House in September and October of 2018.
