Upcoming Exhibitions

Cincinnati Silver

June 14, 2014 to September 07, 2014

Cincinnati was not only a center for art pottery and furniture; it was also a significant hub for the production and trade of luxury silver wares. In the years prior to 1850, Cincinnati boasted the largest concentration of silversmiths, jewelers, watch and clockmakers in the Midwest. This exhibition will showcase 150 to 200 objects, ranging from elegantly wrought soup tureens to tea sets that represent the city’s earliest activities in the trade (about 1795) through the Art Deco period. Displayed with related account and sample books, archival photographs, portraits, and furnishings of the period, the nature and riches of Cincinnati’s history in silver will unfold.
