Olde Meets New
by Elizabeth Reid.
I used 20 gauge copper 1.5 inches wide. I applied a peanut oil patina and then riveted an antique escutcheon.
These escutcheons were from my grandfather Max Rosinski who was a cabinet-maker in the DC area between 1898 and 1940.
My second hobby/passion is genealogy and while going through a box of things after my mother’s death I found a letter with the heading Tudor House.
In this letter from Armistead Peter III, a direct descendant of the Washington family, he wrote that he considered my grandfather the finest cabinet-maker in the area and the only one he would trust to repair the chest-on-chest of “General Washington.”
