Brief Trip to Boston Massachusetts

Tuesday June 30,through Thursday July 2, 2015

Part 2 - Furniture pictures



Museum of Fine Art in Boston

We really enjoyed our visit to the Museum of Fine Art, and took a lot of pictures of the furniture on display (no flash allowed, so the light was low, sometimes leading to lower picture quality - sorry).

The museum claims that most of it's collection is on-line, but that puts so much on line that I haven't found a furniture section. I suggest you start looking at art-americas
 

I have found that drawers high on a chest, such as above and below, do not work well - the user cannot see into the drawers. That is why so many tall cabinets have shelves at the top.

Note the draped ribbon design in the tambour doors in the piece below.


Creating these travelogues are fun, but a lot of work. I would love to hear from you, with comments, suggestions, and corrections. Send e-mail comments to Charlie@Plesums.com
