Miniature Caudle Cup

Though today was likely a solemn occasion for Paul Revere, remembering annually the loss of his father, Paul Revere, Sr. #OTD in 1754 (at 52) we’re choosing to reflect on the career of the first Paul Revere/Apollos Rivoire (who anglicized his name upon immigration to Boston.)

Known in the art world as Paul Revere I or Paul Revere, Sr. to distinguish him from his son & grandson of the same name (as they all three worked as Silver and Goldsmiths!) Paul Sr. apprenticed to the talented John Coney upon his arrival in the City of Boston as a 13 yr old in 1715.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston routinely has some of Paul Sr.’s silver on display - and also viewable digitally. This miniature caudle cup, probably made during his apprenticeship while still developing new skills is one of our favorites: http://bit.ly/3eLtejs

As we near the end of #PrideMonth - we want to thank our friends at Boston National Historical Park for sharing this great set of photos of Christine Jorgensen’s visit to the Freedom Trail - we’d love to know more about the story of her visit - we’ll be doing some research and hope to report back more about it eventually! There are certainly many untold stories of LGBTQIA+ individuals who have lived & worked in our buildings - it is nice to be reminded that while we may never uncover some of their tales, we can know some about the proud visitors we have hosted over the years! #Pride2021

Paul Revere's Ride Postcard Book - Paul Revere House

Paul Revere’s daughter Harriet Revere passed away #OTD in 1860 at the age of 77. She likely would have been surprised to learn that only two months earlier Henry W. Longfellow began drafting the poem that would launch her father into mythical status for his Midnight Ride.

After the publication of the poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride,” in Dec. 1860 the Revolutionary War era messenger quickly became a household name, even though Longfellow’s version of his escapades diverged greatly from the accounts Revere recorded & shared with descendants like Harriet.

The poem inspired many interpretations of The Ride, including these postcards, reproduced as a book from originals in our collection. Each one bears a verse of the poem & a late 19th c. illustration. Collect your own via our website for #MuseumShopMonday https://bit.ly/3dpDA7M

$9.95 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “Paul Revere’s Ride” is brought to life in this reprint of ten full-color postcards on perforated stock. The complete poem is included in the back of the book.

The most recent podcast episode of Ben Franklin’s World really made us think about the Revere family’s relationship with their lost loved ones. http://apple.co/2T1jIBf

Death was certainly ever present in their lives, particularly for Paul Revere, who outlived both of his wives, 11 of his 16 children, & many of his grandchildren. It was #OTD in 1813 that Paul lost his beloved second wife, his Dear Girl, Rachel Walker Revere.

We can certainly vouch for the excellent quality of Revere Copper Products Inc.! All of the copper you’ll find on our structures has been donated over the years by Revere Copper and it continues to serve us well. ❤️

Today we hosted visitors from the Revere Copper Products Inc. in Rome, NY. They brought us some samples of the copper they produce with the heritage of Paul Revere in all the do. Thanks to the generous donation that made the roof on the Rolling Mill complete with actual modern Revere copper.

Today is the 245th anniversary of Paul Revere's famous ride. But don't take it from me, here is straight from the horse's mouth.
We should visit this house next time we are in Boston together, please...
I visited about three weeks ago.have very mixed feelings do to employee talking to loud almost to the point of screaming About her opinion and not sugar coating. The best experience about being there was watching the young women make chocolate. i would by pass by the dinning room ahead for the kitchen very educational.
We welcome visitors Memorial Day Weekend. Come learn about Paul Revere's entrepreneurial spirit.
We invite our friends from the Paul Revere House to visit us on guided tours during Memorial Day Weekend. Come and learn more about Paul Revere - America's Entrepreneur.
