THREE CLASSIC CONNECTICUT ROOMS


This bedroom setting comfortably combine William and Mary pieces of 1700-1720 (the superb painted and decorated high chest of drawers at left and the chest at the foot of the bed, both from Connecticut) with a New England Queen Anne easy chair in its original flamestitch upholstery and an armchair, both originating in New England and dating from 1720-1745. The bed is a country Chippendale piece fro the late eighteenth century. (Winterthur Museum)

The Noah Webster house was designed and built by David Hoadley in 1822 at New Haven, Connecticut. The dining room, with its Mahogony Hepplewhite table set for dessert, is furnished with Federal pieces dating from 1790-1800. The filded farandole mirror over the sideboard at left is crowned with axes and flags. Thomas Chambers' painting A view Near Anthony's Nose, Hudson Highlands, New York hangs at the right. (Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum.)
 


The Renaissance Revival style of the 1870's is handsomely represented in the furniture, overmantel mirror, and architectural elements in this sitting room from the forty-room mansion built by Jedediah Wilcox at Meriden, Connecticut. Mother-of-pearl cameos decorate the crests of the chairs and the mirror. (The Metropolitan Museum of Art ).
