According to the accession records, this chair was part of a set used in the country home of the Reverend Samuel Jones (1737-1811), great-great-grandfather of the donor. However, the set was clearly manufactured after 1811. The donor's father, Robert Jones Henderson (1835-1884), inherited the furniture and brought it to New York.
