Period Furniture


Paterae has a rich and diverse tradition in the Federal Style of American furniture design. These oval-shaped ornaments were often used to give decorative flair to the upper portion, or pilaster, of Federal table legs. Roger will demonstrate the art of inlaying sand shaded shells and if there is enough time, might show us some other techniques like laying an oval with stringing, or making bindings,
