Edward Durant

The Esther Brazer Stevens Collection at the Museum of American Folk Art contains many authentic floorcloth patterns traced directly from the floors of historic homes around New England.  Perhaps the most prolific house is the Edward Durant House in Newton, MA, c. 1734.  The house contained many stenciled floors with some of the most beautiful Early American stencil designs found anywhere.
