American Decorative Art

The Birmingham Museum of Art has a strong and growing collection of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American decorative arts, including silver by Tiffany & Co. and Gorham, glass by Tiffany Studios and Steuben, and ceramics by the Union Porcelain Works, George Ohr, and the Newcomb College Pottery. Most important, perhaps, are the works by Frank Lloyd Wright: a window from the Joseph Jacob Walser House in Chicago, and a chair from Unity Temple in Oak Park, Illinois. In 2009, the Museum made two major acquisitions of eighteenth-century Boston silver: a porringer by John Coney and an armorial teapot by Jacob Hurd.
