Antique Christmas

Nov 3 2017 - Jan 7 2018

Taft Museum

Cincinnati, OH

Get into the holiday mood by visiting the Taft’s annual display of antique ornaments, decorations, and toys. Thanks to generous lenders from Cincinnati and beyond, you can escape to a winter wonderland of Christmas past.

This year you will see a miniature log cabin in Christmastime woods; an antique clockwork Santa; an exhibit of early German nutcrackers; antique Christmas feather trees trimmed entirely with delightful red and pink ornaments, and—benefitting this national election year— a large-scale tree with old patriotic ornaments in red, blue and white. Festive greenery will deck the halls and exterior of the house, and the Dining Room will be set for the holidays with sparkling china, crystal, and silver.
