Thomas Day Artifacts

Thomas Day Craftsmanship
by Kelsey Walker

This is Mahogany veneer made in the 1840s by Thomas Day.  This piece really shows his craftsmanship with what curves and decorative pieces on the furniture with the tools they had to work with back then.

Walnut bench made by Thomas Day in 1958 for the Gov. of Rockingham.  I think adding this piece to the collection shows how famous he was in that he was commissioned to make furniture for very wealthy people of that time period.

This is a poplar and yellow pine cabinet made by Thomas Day in 1854.  I like this piece for the collection because it is simple and reflects his craftsmanship.
