Monticello Revolving Arm Chair

Item #: 800031
Availability: Allow 8-10 weeks for delivery.
The original Revolving Arm Chair sits in the Cabinet of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello home. It was one of three elements that made up Jefferson’s reading and writing arrangement in his Cabinet. Jefferson may have purchased the chair from New York City cabinetmaker Thomas Burling circa 1790. It is likely that the original chair was based on the French style concave desk chair popular during the Louis XVI period. Jefferson may have had a hand in the design of the revolving mechanism that allows the chair to swivel. George Washington had a very similar chair, also purchased from Burling, now at Mount Vernon. 48 1/2" x 25 1/4" x 24"

All licensed pieces are custom commissions, and hand-crafted in New York. Pre-payment is required and orders may not be canceled. Please allow 8-10 weeks for completion from payment receipt.
