The chair you see pictured was part of an order from the Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. I made three of these chairs, copying two that they already had, and a Communion Table. The originals of these items are pictured in Wallace Nutting's FURNITURE TREASURY; the chair is plate 2101 and the table is plate 811. All these items reside in the recently renovated Seminary Chapel and can be seen there. To see more examples of period reproductions and adaptations please visit my website: www.jasbecker.com. There you will see a representative cross section of my work including various period, Shaker inspired, and contemporary designs. You will also find more comprehensive contact information along with a map and directions to my shop.

Do not feel limited by or to what you see. More than half my work is one-of- a-kind, pieces I have not made before. I would be happy to work with you to design and or to price something in a style to suite your tastes. I have many amateur photos in addition to the professional photos on my website. Call or e-mail with an explanation of your particular needs; I may have some more photos or drawings that would interest you.ææ
