General Membership Meeting

February 18 @ 7:30 pm

Kevin Kerchner is an avid collector of early 18th century furniture and decorative arts. He has been collecting since college when he started attending small auctions in Illinois where he grew up. His interest in history, the provenance of special pieces and over forty years of collecting have led to his outstanding personal collection. Some of his fields of study and collecting include travel-related artifacts, metalwork, wine/punch-related items and unusual objects found in early homes.

Kevin will be sharing his knowledge of collecting and his love of exceptional pieces! Learn about early American, English, and Dutch decorative arts, what to look for when you are purchasing an antique and try your skill at identifying “what is it?” items.
