Almost as a footnote, the museum includes a tiny display called "British Women Silversmiths: Private Collection of 17th to 19th Century Pieces." In two cases, one wall-mounted, we get 29 pieces, ranging from serving spoons and various specialized spoons to goblets and beer cups and tea and coffee pots, all polished to a high sheen. O'Keefe, who has long brought her knowledge of and passion for crafts to her job as museum director, hints that this may be the first of a series of displays devoted to objects from private collections. That would provide yet another reason to visit the Coral Springs Museum, perhaps the most underappreciated of South Florida's arts institutions.
