LECTURE Hamilton's Grange: Replicating Alexander Hamilton's Furniture

Our guests today are Tad Fallon and Randy S. Wilkinson, Principals, Fallon & Wilkinson, LLC.

In 2010, Fallon & Wilkinson, LLC of Baltic, Connecticut, was awarded two contracts: one to replicate twenty-eight pieces of Federal furniture in museum collections, and the second to conserve five of the original Louis XVI chairs for Hamilton Grange.

Hear about this exciting commission that included making 1,472 bellflowers that were inlaid into the sixteen chairs used in Alexander Hamilton's dining room.
