Description

The original Windsor Bench sits in the Cabinet room of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello home.  It was one of three elements that made up Jefferson's reading and writing arrangement in his Cabinet.  It was purchased by Jefferson from Philadelphia cabinetmaker, Lawrence Allwine in 1798.  Allwine ran a successful Windsor chair business in Philadelphia between 1786 and 1800.  Jefferson used the bench to stretch out his legs while he worked in his Cabinet.  The legs were later shortened and both ends of the bench rounded to fit the curve of his chair.
