Talk at Wilson Museum
September 28 @ 4:00 pm
Independent museum curator Laura F. Sprague will present a talk titled “Ceramic Tablewares in Castine, 1690-1840” on Sept. 28 at 4 p.m.
What can the tableware of early Castine residents (and other Mainers) indicate about past trading networks?
World trade isn’t a new phenomenon. Based on the Wilson Museum’s collection, this slide presentation considers ceramic tablewares used in early Castine and the trading networks that brought them to Penobscot Bay. The talk will also reveal how these objects relate to other documented Maine examples.
A scholar of Maine’s 18th and 19th-century art, architecture and material culture, Sprague has contributed to research, publications, and exhibitions for the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brick Store Museum, Maine Historical Society and Tate House Museum, among others.
The public is invited to join the program in-person and virtually. To receive the Zoom link, email Haley at [email protected] with the subject line “Ceramic Tablewares Zoom Link.”
