Rustic Regional Windsor Chairs
April 15, 2017
The 1719 William Trent House Museum welcomes back author and lecturer David Bosted. David’s lecture on April 15th at 1:00pm will give the audience an introduction to 17th, 18th and early 19th century chairs, focusing specifically on Windsor chairs.
David Bosted served as the curator of the recent exhibit on RUSTIC REGIONAL WINDSOR CHAIRS and the Centennial of the Windsor Chair Revival 1917-2017 at the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie Mansion. He also set up the 1998 exhibit on Windsor Chairs at the 1719 William Trent House. The Trent House exhibit included a splendid talk by Nancy Goyne Evans of Wintertour Museum, the doyenne of Windsor Chairs and author of American Windsor Chairs, the definitive reference on the topic.
Before retiring, David worked as an attorney and urban planner. He served as a Deputy Attorney General in New Jersey and as Acting Attorney General of the Federated States of Micronesia, a vast island nation in the equatorial Western Pacific.
There will also be a brief introduction to our own historic furniture collection. While of a different time period than Windsor chairs, the Trent House Collection contains several pieces of William and Mary furniture, all of which are on display within the museum. Come on a tour to see all of these beautiful pieces arranged within the early 18th century setting of the William Trent House.
