This is the third installment of photos from my trip to the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. We only covered the furniture and decorative arts section of the American Wing. Here are more photos, this time of miscellaneous things that caught my eye.
Ceramics from the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th Century
I loved this early 20th century piece
Very contemporary looking vase
An assortment of old clocks
Early American doll and doll accessories. I love the coach!
More doll furniture and an adorable toy horse for the dolls!
Painted wood chest from colonial times
Another example of a painted wood chest
Plates painted in the American style
Plates painted in a more typical Oriental Style
Ceiling from the recreated Frank Lloyd Wright room
Door and wall lamp designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, in the Frank Lloyd Wright room
Ornate street lamp just outside the American Wing of the Met
Silver vase with gemstones
Odd work desk with bag hanging underneath to store work materials, like for sewing.
Unique piece pairing wood and stained glass
Recreated room with wallpaper on all the walls with different views of a single scene
Another wall of wallpaper with no repeat patterns, just a continual scene going around the room
Wall over the fireplace continuing the rustic scene
