Isaac Thomas

  • Lived:
  • 1721-1802
  • Worked:
  • Chester County, PA
  • Style:
  • Clockmaker, Cabinetmaker
  • A unique renaissance man of his time, Isaac Thomas was not only a cabinetmaker, but also a clockmaker as well.  There were few other Americans during his time that shared the same distinction.  Thomas was also an artist in the broadest terms.  Although he was conceptually a cabinetmaker his pieces have a distinct presentation unlike almost any other cabinetmaker of his time.  You know a Thomas when you see it. 

    We have had the opportunity of representing not just clocks from this Chester County treasure, but also spice boxes, desks and other examples of American period furniture.
