7/22/2009This is a 19th century piece. We were looking for something Egyptian Revival but settled on this piece instead. Because it comes from the 1820’s, the Jacksonian Era, it seemed particularly appropriate for our house and David’s connection to Jackson. And like David and Jackson, who was six-foot one, the piece is unusually long. A tall man can stretch out on it. This is not true of most pieces from the eighteen twenties. And we love the wings on the feet.
