Furniture Stories

Studying the Renaissance Revival means I can indulge in more research about my obsession the 19th century Newark, NJ cabinetmaker, John Jellif. Information on him is limited but I am fascinated by the use of the image of the famous opera singer Jenni Lind whose face he carved into his more important pieces. I would love to know the story of why she ended up the muse for this man.
