The Object of History: 18th-Century Treasures from the Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society

Thursday, Jun 27, 2013 10:00a to 4:00p

The Object of History explores the meaning of historical objects through the display of 18th-century portraits and rarely seen objects including engravings, needlework, maps, weapons, furniture, clothing, and silver. Visitors can view items such as the ca. 1765 scarlet wool cloak worn by Peter Oliver, the chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court; a Queen Anne-style church chair that became the property of Paul Revere; and a mahogany cellaret with lead-lined interior fittings.
