The Washington Collection: Stool

This tabouret stool is believed to be the sole survivor of a pair that President George Washington commissioned in Philadelphia in 1793 to complete a suite of Parisian furniture he purchased in New York from French minister Elénor-François-Elie, Comte de Moustier. It is part of the collection at Tudor Place. Tudor Place was the Washington, D.C., home of Thomas and Martha Custis Peter. Martha Custis Peter was First Lady Martha Washington's granddaughter.
