Now Online: Pabst Mansion

Seven catalog entries for artifacts from the collections of the Captain Frederick Pabst Mansion are now available online. One of the most spectacular objects original to this lavish late-nineteenth-century Milwaukee home is this built-in corner cabinet (one of two) designed by the Matthews Brothers for the Pabst family’s Rococo Revival-style formal dining room. More examples of work by the Matthews Brothers, a prominent Milwaukee-based furniture manufactory and interior design firm, from the collections of Villa Louis and the Milwaukee County Historical Society as well as the Pabst, are available here.
