United Company Contemporary Regional Art Gallery
A Century of Furniture will feature approximately 25 pieces of furniture made by the Rose Family, in addition to the family’s history, genealogy, and importance to the region and American decorative arts throughout the 19th century. John Erhart Rose (ca. 1767-1860) apprenticed in Philadelphia, owned a shop in Abingdon, and also worked in Knoxville, Tenn. His sons continued making furniture in the second half of the 19th century in Abingdon. The family’s furniture spanned over a century, showcasing this region’s federal, empire and gothic styles.
