DECORATIVE ARTS TRUST - SPRING SYPOSIUM

In the spring we were invited to present at the Decorative Arts Trust - Spring Symposium in Savannah.   The talk entitled, "The Berrien House Portfolio: A Sprig, a Trellis & a President", was received with much enthusiasm and was followed by an extended tour of the house. Of particular interest was our discovery of fragments of 18th century newspaper from Philadelphia where the Decorative Arts Trust is based. An article about The Berrien House and our continuing research is posted on their site. Here is the link-
