Regional Furniture Society - 'Research in Progress'
New thinking about sixteenth century furniture
Sackler Centre, Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Saturday, 24 February 2018
10.00 AM – 16.45 PM
Open to members and non-members alike, the Regional Furniture Society’s annual Research in Progress meeting this year will address furniture in the sixteenth century, a field complicated by the importation of furniture, the influx of immigrant craftsmen and the recycling of fragments. The five papers presented will cover a variety of furniture types and influences, based on close study of surviving pieces.
