A Revere Revelation: A 'New' Teapot by Paul Revere the Patriot
Gerald W.R. Ward, Senior Curator at the MFA Boston, will discuss the Newport Historical Society’s rare Rococo-style teapot crafted by the Patriot, Paul Revere. Ward will place the teapot in the context of Revere’s work as Boston’s leading silversmith of the day and of the turbulent times of Boston in the 1760’s, when many initial steps were taken leading to the American Revolution in which he would play a prominent part.
