Amherst Media Cabinet


Inspired by a 1750s design for garden ornaments “in the Chinese taste” from a rare book in Colonial Williamsburg’s library, the Amherst fret-facade pieces will look equally stylish in today’s city flat or suburban house. The burnished pewter-colored fretwork is akin to the fashionable English rococo furniture and silver that wealthy patrons such as Jeffery Amherst–Governor-General of British North America–and (absentee) royal governor of Virginia from 1759-68–would have appreciated.
