Thomas Miller of Fredericksburg Side Chair

Will Paulsen

This chair is attributed to the workshop of Thomas Miller. Born in 1748 in Stirling, Scotland, he migrated to America and was working in Fredericksburg, Virginia by 1765. Unique to his 1770s chair design is the lobed ending at the top of his splat or back. This chair is made of black walnut with a yellow pine slip seat. See Figures 46, 47, and 48 in the Furniture of Fredericksburg chapter in the Chipstone volume, American Furniture: 2006, edited by Luke Beckerdite.
