Bedrooms in thosedays were cold spaces, heated up just by fireplaces, if atall, and the individual seated in one of these well-cushionedchairs was protected from drafts. Owing to the amountof product needed, to cover and pack among these chairs, the price was nearly excessive. Stocks set theirprice at from one pound to 10, according to the styleand material used for upholstering. Among this type is inthe Mrs. Nathaniel Mansfield collection, which was origin-ally owned by Col.Timothy Pickering, the good friend of Wash-ington, and firstSecretary of theNavy. It shows up-holstering of excel-lent quality andworkmanship, andis an essential fac-tor in a great collec-tion of this design. Many kinds ofchairs are seen, andthey are of so manyperiods, that itwould take a book, entirely devoted tothis post of furni-ture, to initiate oneinto all the myste-ries and fascinationsof furniture lore.
