Seeking New Home for Housewares Collection

23 Jul 2019 3:26 PM | Anonymous member

Maine Maritime Museum has recently deaccessioned hundreds of items that include furnishings, housewares, linens, and clothing dating c. 1880-1910. Most items have no provenance and were collected solely for the purpose of outfitting a house museum that never came to be.

Are there any institutions with period exhibits or house museums that might find use for items from this collection?

Best regards,
