November 1, 2020 Thomas Cook: The maker of the Telfair Dining Table by Carlie Berlin

This lecture will explore Cook’s background, his cabinetmaking history, and his relationship with Savanah customers. The lecture will be based on the extensive research that formed the basis of the article “A Shadow of a Magnitude: The Furniture of Thomas Cook and Richard Parkin” published in 2013 in American Furniture.

Mr. Berlin became enthralled with the classical aesthetic thirty years ago and is now considered one of the country’s leading dealers in American furniture and decorative arts of the Classical period, 1790-1840. He has lectured at New York University’s School of Continuing Education where he is an adjunct professor.  He has also lectured at the Parsons School of Design in New York, The Colonial Williamsburg Furniture Forum, Yale University Art Gallery’s Furniture Symposium, American Decorative Arts Forum, and the Winterthur Furniture Forum, among many, many others. His furniture has been featured in: The New York Times, The Magazine ANTIQUES, Architectural Digest, Harvard Magazine, House & Garden, Art & Auction, Antiques & Fine Arts, The Robb Report, and Veranda.  His booth at The International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show in New York was featured in the CNBC broadcast segment “High Net Worth,” airing 11/20/2007.
