Although primarily a metalworker, Madeline Yale Wynne (1847-1918) briefly dabbled in furniture making. Her burnt-wood box, displayed in the 1899 Deerfield, Massachusetts exhibition, was described as: "Mrs. Wynne's small chest for photographs, decorated with peacocks in low relief colored with dull blues, greens and ruby reds, the keyhole and corner plates being made of hammered copper, toned to harmony with the dark surface of the bow. The artist calls this design the peacock minuet." Springfield Daily Republican, September 5, 1899.
