Cabinet Making in Early 19th Century New England
This summer, Old Sturbridge Village is proud to announce our new exhibit, Planed, Grained, & Dovetailed: Cabinetmaking in Rural New England, a new exhibition highlights rarely-seen objects and primary source materials from the Village's collections. Centered on three main themes - form, process, and people - the exhibition examines the tools, products, and livelihoods of rural cabinetmakers in the early 19th century. Visitors will gain a deeper insight into how these objects were designed, fashioned, and used in the period, and how they inform our understanding of modern-day craftsmanship.
The exhibition illustrates the wide range of objects shaped by the hands of rural cabinetmakers including clock cases, sofas, sideboards, and coffins. Delicate inlay, figured veneers, intricate carvings, and grain-painted surfaces, represent the diversity of decorative processes practiced by a New England cabinetmaker to adorn his work.
