Catalogue Note

As Jack Lindsey stated, some of the earliest surviving examples of Pennsylvania turned and joined furniture were constructed entirely of oak. This paneled oak armchair was probably made by one of the English, Welsh, or Irish joiners who immigrated to the Pennsylvania colony prior to 1715.  The inventory of Ralph Fishbourne, taken in Chester County in 1708, listed in the “outward Roome” “½ doz of oaken chairs.”
