“Does this bring me joy?” we increasingly ask ourselves when assessing the objects in our home. Skilled artisans of the past, and the present, create beautiful objects that do precisely that – bring joy to our lives. Join us this Spring as our New Collectors Series celebrates the joy of collecting! In this series of connoisseurship presentations, Doyle’s Specialists share their expertise in the decorative arts.
