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 PastBritish 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, September 7, 2-3 pm
