Local News

SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) Three pieces of early Mormon pioneer furniture and early Pioneer-era will be on display at Anthony’s Fine Art in downtown Salt Lake City.

Historians say Mormon furniture is unique in history. It was made by European and eastern American craftsmen accustomed to working with fine materials that were unavailable in the Salt Lake Valley before the arrival of the railroad in 1869.

For this Pioneer Day, Anthony’s will showcase some of the rarest pieces of Mormon art and furniture.

“These things are an expression of the early days here in Utah of what they went through you know I tell people that we stand on the shoulders of giants,” said Anthony Christensen.

Anthony’s Fine Art will display more than two dozen paintings and decorative art pieces made by pioneer painters and sculptors for the first time.

Anthony’s Fine Art is located at 401 East 200 South in Salt Lake City.
