Kathryn C. Buhler Lecture

Margaret K. Hofer, curator, Decorative Arts, New-York Historical Society

Using richly documented examples from the collection of the New-York Historical Society, Margaret K. Hofer discusses silver made and used in New York from the 17th through the 20th centuries, focusing on its symbolic meanings, its role in sustaining kinship ties, and its ability to convey the ambitions and achievements of its owners.
