John Jelliff Neo-Grec VSA Article
John Jelliff in The Victorian Times
I recently “met” Roberta Mayer virtually through this site when she saw my posts on John Jelliff and the “Jenny Lind” carved arms. She made me aware of an article she had written on the same topic several years ago for The Victorian Times for VSA. Roberta is an accomplished and widely published author and presenter on the topic of decorative arts who happens to live very close to me. I will need to meet up with her one of these days.
My thinking on these arms is very much in-line with hers (and I plan another post on more comparisons) and she has graciously approved my sharing her article with you below. It is titled, “Neo-Grec Parlor Suites:” with the wonderful sub-title of “Not Always A “Jelliff””
