This Glorious House Stenton
by the National Society of the Colonial Dames in
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Stenton is one
of the finest historic houses in the Philadelphia
region-- noted for its distinguished architecture
and collections. The Philadelphia Antiques Show
will be a special opportunity to view Logan family
objects--from the Dames' collection at Stenton and
from other institutions, as well (including: Philadelphia
Museum of Art; Library Company of Philadelphia;
Commissioners of Fairmount Park; Historical Society
of Pennsylvania; and Metropolitan Museum of Art).
James Logan's easy chair from a private collection
will also be on view.
gathering of these objects, particularly James Logan's
upholstered seating furniture, helps visitors realize
that although James Logan (1674-1751) was a Philadelphia
Quaker, he was a self-made, wealthy British gentleman,
who furnished his country house, Stenton (built
1723-1730), in so grand a manner as to compare with
his English counterparts across the Atlantic Ocean.
