“The Notebook of Philadelphia Joiner John Widdifield”

Widdifield’s plan for a spice box and scrutoire. (Chipstone.org)

In the autumn of 2015 there was considerable interest in the auction of  the notebook of the early-18th century joiner, John Widdifield. A private collector prevailed in the auction and agreed to make the notebook available for publication and study by the Chipstone Foundation and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The initial article about Widdifield and his notebook was published in “American Furniture” and is available from Chipstone to read online here.

If you would like to take a closer look at each page of the notebook click on ‘Show all Figures only’ on the upper right hand of the page and a window will open.
