While visiting Homestead we went to the Jacobsen’s Antique shop to look for Florida History magazines. We stumbled upon postcards sent to Charles Deering and a pair of bargello chairs that were supposedly from the Deering Estate. The fabric of the chairs was in poor condition and the embroidery of palms looked like it had been shredded by the wind. We mentioned these findings to both Bethany Gray (Deering Estate Historic Preservation and Curatorial Manager) and to Francis Oliver (Deering Estate, Interpretive Staff). On the next day, they drove to Homestead to check the items.
