A Video History of Fayette County
Fayette County in the early 19th century was not a frontier outpost but rather Uniontown was a bustling place replete with a host of small businessmen including a number of cabinetmakers and clockmakers. Many pieces are unattributed as they rarely signed their work, but suffice it to say their work was of the highest quality and often characterized by unique vine and leaf or berry inlay. This exhibit, the sixth for the Society, is the third in a series of exhibits entitled Made In Fayette. The first exhibit featured Fayette stoneware and the second featured Fayette glassware. Both were rousing successes. This exhibit featured more than two dozen pieces of furniture documented to have originated in Fayette County. The exhibit was highlighted by seven pieces of elaborately-inlayed items, a 1760 Dutch cupboard, two grandfather clocks, a Smithfield corner cupboard and a Chippendale high chest found on the confines of Friendship Hill, the home of Albert Gallatin, Secretary of the Treasury under the Jefferson administration. The pieces trace their origins to Connellsville, Smithfield, Dawson, Menallen Township, Springfield Township and Uniontown. This video provides a peek at the skills of tradesmen from long-gone days as well as a few pieces of contemporary craftsmanship. This document may serve scholars and collectors as a guide to collecting Fayette. The price for this video is $15.90 with tax and total with shipping $21.00.
