In the CHM conservation lab, Maria Paras is cleaning a chrome steel and Formica kitchen table, reducing corrosion, and stabilizing the metal trim around the top. Made by the @cityofstcharlesil-based Howell Company, the drop-leaf table is an example of modern American design that emerged during the 1930s. See it on display when “Modern by Design: Chicago Streamlines America” opens on Saturday, 10/27. #ChicagoModern  #ChicagoHistoryMuseum  #whenyouworkatamuseum  #designhistory  #collectionscare
