Jewish Immigrants and the American Antiques Trade with Historic New England

In the early twentieth century, Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe played an unlikely yet pivotal role in the emerging market for antiques. Working as dealers, restorers, and makers, these individuals became noted authorities on American decorative arts and their clients included some of the most famous collectors of their era. Explore the lives and careers of a handful of men, including Israel Sack, Nathan Margolis, and Isaac Kaplan, who transformed the look and feel of American heritage.

Led by Erica Lome, Associate Curator at Historic New England. She was previously the Peggy N. Gerry Curatorial Associate at the Concord Museum. Lome specializes in American material culture, with a focus on things made, owned, and used in New England and the contributions of immigrant craftspeople to that body of work.

Presented by Danvers Library in partnership with the Tewksbury Public Library and other area libraries.
