COLLECTING V.I. AND CARIBBEAN FURNITURE

Oct. 1, 2001 – Have you ever yearned to buy local or Caribbean antique furniture, but been frustrated by the paucity of expert help for collectors? Two members of the St. Thomas Historic Trust will remedy that, in a lecture on collecting V.I. and Caribbean antique furniture at 6 p.m. Thursday at the V.I. Cultural Heritage Institute, 5-6 Kongens Gade, St. Thomas.
Philip Sturm, a longtime collector, and Felipe Ayala, who observes island homes and furnishings on the television program "Inside", will make the presentation as part of the Institute's "Pass It On" program. They will provide for novice and experienced collectors a wealth of information on collecting antique furniture locally. They will educate collectors on determining authenticity and quality of a piece of furniture, and will answer questions.
The "Pass It On" project is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and is supported by the V.I. Humanities Council. For information, call the Institute at 774-9537.
