Glessner House and the Arts & Crafts Movement

Glessner House is internationally recognized as a pivotal work of architect H. H. Richardson.  But equally important is the significant collection of furniture and decorative arts that John and Frances Glessner selected and commissioned to furnish their home.  In these special behind-the-scenes tours, Executive Director and Curator William Tyre will showcase items from the collection that demonstrate Frances Glessner’s commitment to the tenets of the Arts & Crafts movement, both as a collector and as a talented silversmith, jewelry maker, and needle worker.  The work of Isaac E. Scott will be highlighted.  Over the course of  more than 40 years, Scott designed and executed countless pieces for the family, including furniture, picture frames, earthenware, pewter and embroidery designs.
