Winterthur Museum's collection of seating furniture made between 1630 and 1730, the largest such collection in the United States, forms the core of this study and is supplemented by more than a hundred other examples now in public and private collections throughout Europe and America which offer important insights about the transmission of styles, construction details, and taste.
