By A. H. Davenport Co., ca. 1898

Mahogany, 33 x 22 x 22 in.

This typifies the furniture commissioned for the Brigham extension from the A. H. Davenport Company. Dozens of these versatile mahogany chairs, which combined serviceable leather upholstery with elegant nail head accents and featured both scrolled and reeded arm supports, were purchased for the reception and committee rooms. Other examples include the small mahogany swivel desk chairs constructed with leather-paneled backs and nail head trim, and a suite of larger lounge chairs and settees, all upholstered in leather.
