The Art of Dining Public Tour
October 5 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Ever wonder why tea leaves were once kept in locked caddies? Or why a citrus on the table indicated wealth? Learn these answers and much more in a new 60-minute Art of Dining tour. This tour through the Portals to the Past: British Ceramics exhibition, the museum’s noted collection of late 17th through early 19th century ceramics, will highlight Georgian- and Regency-era seating etiquette, food preparation, and dining customs. Tour guides will ‘set the table’ for conversations about the design, production and use of selected pieces.
Saturday, October 5, 2-3 pm
Next dates: Saturday, November 2, 2-3 pm and Saturday, December 7, 2-3 pm
