Top Drawer: 150 Years of Bittners

Experience the old world craftsmanship of handmade furniture through the 18th and 19th centuries at the Frazier History Museum, 829 W. Main St., Nov. 17 through Jan. 1. “Top Drawer” is a 4,000 sq. ft. exhibition that explores how a German immigrant’s custom cabinet shop became not only a Louisville tradition, but also a nationally-renowned design firm. Exquisite American, English and Continental furniture inspired by great monarchs and makers is featured, as well as the story of how the political, cultural and social forces of these periods can inspire the aesthetic of our homes. Examine fine antiques from around the world as well as master-crafted pieces produced by the Bittners custom shop. The exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
