Tilt Stand

Workshop: "Furniture Repairs and Fakes at Odessa" with Philip D. Zimmerman

Thursday, September 29, 2022 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Bring your questions and curiosity to this small group program! Join Philip D. Zimmerman to discuss and examine several HOF collection objects.

Recognizing fakes and repairs has long been a highlight of lectures and museum presentations, to say nothing of Antiques Roadshow.  This program will pursue that topic but place more emphasis on reasonings behind certain pronouncements than drama and showmanship.  Examples will come from Historic Odessa collections, some of which have been hiding in plain sight.

Reservations are required; (302) 378-4119 or jennifer.cabell@historicodessa.org

Admission: Free to HOF members or $20/person
