Thomas Lincoln cupboard by Thomas Lincoln( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Corner cupboard likely built and owned by Thomas Lincoln, father of Abraham Lincoln. This cupboard is made of cherry and stands 88 inches tall, 53 inches wide, and 24 inches deep from the front to the rear corner. The original base has been replaced with a modern one of antique design, probably sometime in the late 1930's or early 1940's. The cupboard has two large upper doors and a pair of smaller doors on the base. The upper doors open to reveal three shelves. A wooden strip 49 inches long and 2.6 inches wide runs along the outer edge of each of the upper doors. These strips are topped with a circle, inside of which is inlaid a four-pointed star design. A streamer design is inlaid down each strip; the streamers branch off at each bend to end in a diamond shape. An inlaid hole and tooth decoration runs along the top of the cupboard's front. A bronze plaque is attached to the inside of the top right door which reads, THOMAS LINCOLN'S CORNER CUPBOARD/This cupboard was made by Thomas Lincoln, the father of the Sixteenth President, While a resident of Hardin County, Kentucky./Purchased by R. Gerald McMurtry/August 23, 1938. Local tradition in the Mill Creek area of Hardin County, KY states that the cupboard was made by Thomas Lincoln and used in his home; when the Lincolns moved to Indiana in 1816, the cupboard fell from their wagon as they attempted to cross a swollen stream. Although the Lincolns decided to leave the cumbersome piece behind, the cupboard was salvaged and became the property of John T. Cowley. The cupboard was then put up for auction and purchased by Mrs. Martha Viers for fifty cents; Mrs. Viers gave the cupboard to Mrs. Amos Garner. R. Gerald McMurtry learned of the cupboard on a research trip to Hardin County in the summer of 1938, and purchased the piece from Mrs. Garner for $17.50, the price of a new cupboard which Mrs. Garner had seen for sale and admired. McMurtry later discovered a very similar cupboard in the collection of Henry Ford's Dearborn museum which was attributed to Thomas Lincoln, as well as another on display at the Court House museum of Rockport, IN, and a third at the public museum in Evansville, IN which came from a family with close connections to the Lincolns which was nearly identical to his own piece. McMurtry therefore concluded that Thomas Lincoln likely made the cupboard, and had it restored to repair damage caused by mice and rats and to remove later additions to the original piece. Among these additions were the inlaid strips alongside the doors, but McMurtry also desired that they be preserved. He later became convinced that the strips were original, and they are now reattached to the upper portion of the cupboard. This piece is on loan from McMurtry's son, Stephen McMurtry. See also Lincoln Herald (XLV) Feb. 1943, pp. 19-22, and McMurtry's research on the cupboard in a binder series housed in the vault of the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum
