This fine corner chair is beautifully hand-crafted by sixth-generation furniture maker Owen Suter of Virginia. Crafted of black walnut wood and featuring a black leather seat, this chair was reproduced from an antique chair dating from 1765 to 1785 in the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation collections. The original chair was believed to have been owned and used by Patrick Henry and was among the furnishings at Red Hill Plantation in Charlotte County, Virginia, where Henry spent his final years. Fashioned by an unknown furniture maker, the original corner chair remained at the family plantation until 1910, when many of Patrick Henry's possessions and papers were sold at auction in Philadelphia. Bring home a remarkable (and comfortable) piece of history to enjoy.
