I’m in the middle researching and writing several multi-part Clark House Historian posts, so no essay today. How about a sunny photo of the Clark House parlour, instead?
Photo by Reed Perkins, 2015. Click to open larger image in new window.
The cherry gate-leg drop leaf table dates from about 1850, and is used at Jonathan Clark House Museum board meetings. The bow backed Windsor chairs are based on 1840s originals. These reproductions date from around the 1940s or so.
The cherry corner cupboard is from about 1840. The finish and most of the glass are original. The tea leaf pattern china and twig pattern tea set in the parlour cupboards were donated by local antiques collectors. And the period reproduction light fixture was made in a small shop in Vermont.
Hope you have a fine day and a lovely weekend.
Back soon with surprises!

Very nice photo. The room remains empty as we are meeting with our painter in a few days.
I can’t wait to get the parlour and Jonathan’s office back in order with our beautiful mid-19th century furniture.
Thanks, Nina, and good luck with the painting. Can’t wait to see the (re)finished rooms.
It’s always nice to see the house. It is such a welcoming place!
