Fry woodcarvings

The Cincinnati Society of the New Jerusalem was once home to many woodcarvings, done in Cincinnati, by people who were members of the church, “Benn Pitman and the two Frys introduced Cincinnatians to hand-carved, decorated furniture and architectural elements…In the early 1870s the Frys formed a private woodcarving class, initiating the art-furniture movement in the city.” (Howe, Jennifer L., ed. Cincinnati Art Carved Furniture and Interiors. Cincinnati: Ohio University Press. Print.)
