Sunday, July 21, 2019 02:00 PM

Silver has been used for centuries to fashion ornamental utensils such as trays, tea sets, and silverware. Take a closer look at a tea urn owned by John Jay, the sword he wore in the British Court in the 1790s, a teapot pot that descended through Sarah Jay’s matrilineal line, and many other exquisite silver pieces. Regular admission fees. Advance purchase of tickets is suggested as space is limited.
Registration: Optional
