MY TRIP TO THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM – BY ELLIN CURLEY

I recently took a trip to New York City with my visiting daughter, to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We only visited one part of the museum, the American Wing. We focused on the furniture and decorative arts section. My daughter is studying Interior Design so this was her dream day in the city.

I took lots of photos of items that captured my imagination and I want to share them with you. I’ll start with the numerous Tiffany items that I particularly liked.

An unusual Tiffany mosaic that was originally on a seafood restaurant facade!

Some Tiffany glass desk chatchkis

A Tiffany picture frame – one of my favorite pieces of the day.

Here’s a piece of Tiffany jewelry – an amazing brooch

A gorgeous grapevine themed Tiffany necklace that reminds me of the grapevine stained glass panel.

Another favorite piece – a Tiffany lamp.

Magnificent, large Tiffany vase

Here are some non Tiffany glass pieces.

Beautiful glass work

Two very cool decorative glass pieces!

Simple but beautiful lines.

    • We spent hours and we were only in one small section of the museum. We’re going to London in April and plan to spend one or two full days at the Victoria and Albert and Science museums.

    • My daughter is getting certified as an interior designer, so she was a fount of wisdom and facts about everything we were looking at. Lots of fun!
