A museum in Sutliff, Ohio, will soon be introducing its autumn seminar series.
The series of lectures will commence on 16th September, with Richard Webb delivering a presentation on antique boxes.
During the presentation, Webb, who is an antiques appraiser and dealer, will provide the history and value of various containers that people have in their collections. He will also give information about the uses of the boxes. Some examples from Webb’s private collection will be discussed at the lecture, including snuff boxes, jewellery containers, Quaker crates, cheese boxes and more.
The second lecture will be delivered on 17th October, discussing quilts from the civil war period. The lecture will be presented by Susan Catanzarito, who will discuss the origins and value of various antique covers and, in addition, will provide information on how to authenticate quilts from the 1860s.
The third lecture will discuss women’s clothing during World War One, although the date has yet to be confirmed. The curator of the Kent State University Museum, Sara Hume, will present the lecture and is inviting attendees to bring along a garment item that dates prior to 1920.
Very often, people who collect antiques like this have appropriate storage or display facilities for their items. For clothing from the First World War, a collector may consider a Victorian period wardrobe, which can be part of a set of antique bedroom furniture. The Ribble Valley in the UK has a number of reputable dealers with a selection of pieces available.
