The flower stand is a particularly good piece. Pictures, vases and ornaments are of the eighteenth century. The white satin taffeta window draperies are in a design typical of the period and are edged with rose fringing. Loaned by Au Paradis, Inc. The second picture shows dining room furniture from an old house in Christiana, Delaware. A mahogany Sheraton table is used with painted beechwood Sheraton chairs and a bureau, desk and tilt top table of the time. The Spode china is one fo teh two first sets of this type brought to America (1820-1830), the other being owned by Girard College. Loaned by Mrs. Edward A. Brion. The last picture shows a display of rosewood furniture made in 1850 for the Chicago parlor of William H. Brown, loaned by his granddaughter. The chair upholstering and draperies are of green brocade and the table cover is scarlet broadcloth embroidered in gold. The mirror was made in 1822 and, while of an earlier period, combines excellently with this furniture. Loaned by Miss Caroline D. Tyler.
