MCHS To Use Gift Shop Proceeds To Restore Rare Collections’ Pieces

This holiday season support local artisans and preserve history. During the Morris County Historical Society’s annual Christmas celebration, proceeds from the Oak Leaf Gallery Gift Shop’s sales will be used to fund the restoration of two damaged 19th century marble and cloisonné candlesticks frequently displayed at Acorn Hall. These candlesticks, along with a magnificent clock, epitomize the opulence of the Victorian era decorative arts and, due to their rarity and value, are unlikely to be seen elsewhere.

“This set is so impressive and such a wonderful part of our collection. We have nothing else like it in the collection,” said Amy Curry, MCHS executive director.

The Oak Leaf Gallery Gift Shop features hand-crafted items by Morris County artisans, books on Morris County and local history, sterling silver jewelry,

locally sourced honey products, children’s items, as well as custom-made mugs, Christmas ornaments, and gifts for all ages.

The Oak Leaf Gallery Gift Shop is in Acorn Hall in Morristown. The gift shop is open Mon.- Fri., 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sun., 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.; and by appointment.. For more information, call the Morris County Historical Society at 973-267-3465, or email  HYPERLINK “”
