This large cabinet with carved starfish and rosette decoration was part of a bedroom set that belonged to Mary Elizabeth Garrett (1854-1915), an American suffragist and philanthropist. For many years Garrett was a generous patroness of numerous endeavors in women’s education, including Bryn Mawr College. As the partner of M. Carey Thomas, Garrett lived in the Deanery, which was partially furnished with articles she brought with her from Baltimore, such as this cabinet. Several other pieces throughout Wyndham also belong to this set and are recognizable by the same starfish and rosette design.
