Historic Collections

The Ebell of Los Angeles has an extensive collection of furnishings, a fine collection of artwork, carpets, porcelain vases and bowls, marble statues, silver tea sets, clocks, theatrical costumes, vintage clothing and accessories, books, pianos, and music. The building was designed by the well-known Architectural Firm of Sumner P. Hunt.

Much of the existing furniture was purchased for the grand opening of its new campus in 1927. The furniture includes a wide range of styles such as: Baroque, Renaissance, Louis XV Revival, Louis XVI Revival, Neoclassical, Rococo, Jacobean, Queen Anne, Japanese, and Chinese. The original Boardroom Table is still being used for the current Board Meetings. A Rococo Revival Carved Oak chair that was used in the first Ebell meeting in 1894 is also part of the collection. Also, numerous pieces have been donated over the past 90+ years to enhance the collection.

This committee is responsible for documenting, restoring, arranging for proper storage and exhibiting from this important collection.
