THE DUNLAP FAMILY OF CABINETMAKERS

Description:
Views: 2368 Added: 04/14/2009 Updated: 04/14/2009
Working in New Hampshire in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the Dunlap family produced fine pieces of furniture in a variety of styles, all decidedly individualistic. Two of the more famous members of the family are Lieutenant Samuel Dunlap (1752-1830), known for his fine pieces of maple furniture; and Major John Dunlap (1784-1869), to whom certain cherrywood pieces with inlay are attributed. Egg and dart molding is characteristic of many pieces of furniture attributed to the Dunlaps as well as combinations of scrolls, open interlaced pediments, and carved intaglio fans.

An active shop, the Dunlaps employed many apprentices and journeymen over the years.

Good references include The Dunlap Cabinetmakers, Phillip Zea & Donald Dunlap and The Dunlaps and their Furniture, The Currier Museum of Art.
