AIC23 PP - A Gumbo of Goods: New Orleans Craftsmen and Retailers

Session Description

Lydia Blackmore, Decorative Arts Curator of the Historic New Orleans Collection, will provide an overview of the craftsmen, retailers, and tastemakers in 19th century New Orleans. From Free Men of Color cabinetmakers to Bordeaux importers, Caribbean silversmiths to New York jewelers, the trade in fine furnishings and tablewares reflected the international tastes of a French/Spanish/American/ Caribbean city. Just as the tastes of New Orleans consumers lean towards the rich and spicy, the furniture and silver available in the city was luxurious in material and design.
