Antique Christmas
On view through January 5, 2019
Taft Museum of Art
Cincinnati, Ohio
Enjoy a glimpse of Christmas past at the Taft Museum of Art’s annual exhibition of holiday treasures. Visitors will find beautiful decorations throughout the historic house, thanks to generous collectors from Cincinnati and beyond.
This year, guests can expect many new and exciting displays, including several feather trees with decorations ranging from vintage Disney ornaments to characters from German fairy tales. Figures of the jolly old elf will also be on view under a large tree adorned with antique paper, chenille, and glass ornaments. Other highlights include a whimsical display of the types of transportation Santa Claus uses to make his special deliveries, as well as a feather tree hung with brightly colored Russian ornaments watched over by figures of Grandfather Frost and the Snow Maiden. A forest of small trees decorated with pre-WWII German, Polish, and Japanese miniature glass ornaments and a vibrant collection of Art Deco gift boxes will also put visitors in the holiday spirit!
