Thanks to the Americana Foundation, the DIA is able to display some of the most important pieces from its collection of early American silver, which haven’t been on view in 10 years. The new permanent installation features 59 examples of early American silver and two late 18th-century Chinese export bowls. Among the highlights are this teapot (pictured below) made by Paul Revere.
