The American Folk Art Museum is home to the collection assembled over many decades by the Historical Society of Early American Decoration. The Society was founded in memory of Esther Stevens Brazer (1898–1945), a direct descendant of one of Maine’s pioneering families in the tin industry. The Society is dedicated to preserving the techniques of early American decoration in a variety of mediums through their own re-creation of historical forms and through the collection of original works, including decorated tin, furniture, and other objects, as well as stencils, tools, and ephemera related to the development of these arts in America.
