Eye on Antiques: Crescent City Silver
New discoveries in antique silver crafted in New Orleans tell the tale of the city’s rich and diverse cultural heritage—and not all French. Today New Orleans silver is a collectible of growing importance and is bringing record prices at auction.
Rick Morris, a New England architect with a long interest in historic houses, and his partner, Mark Willard, saved a Virginia tavern and revealed an astonishing array of original, untouched paint finishes.
