With a few extra days after Christmas and my Mom still in town exploring Boston was the perfect thing to do and what treasures Boston has, among them the Museum of Fine Art or MFA.  Always a pleasure, I find myself drawn to the Americas wing.  Fine and decorative arts spanning decades are displayed so beautifully  and the range from crude and rustic to deco and even modern is so thorough. The museum feels intimate although quite large.  I loved the details shown in each of the dining chairs they have on display from different manufactures across the nation most from the late 1700’s, similar in many (most) respects considering the distance between furniture makers, these chairs point of origin are all different but clearly what was in vogue at the time had the strength of popularity to in force certain details… trendy if you will:  The carved and bowed leg, the claw and ball foot.   Aren’t these chairs beautiful?  chairphoto5 chairphoto4 chairphoto3 chairphoto2
