At the end of the War of 1812, Boston cabinetmakers, including Isaac Vose (maker of the DIA’s great table), met the growing demand for furniture in the latest British styles. Robert Mussey, a leading expert on early American furniture, argues that the best work by these Boston makers was just as good as the best pieces made by Duncan Phyfe in New York.
