Welcome to the weekend! Ok, nearly the weekend if you’re stopping by Friday morning. TGIF anyways!
Woo hoo! We’re starting to get more pins! I love it when you share with us. Will we beat last weeks total of 69?
The tacks used during most of the eighteenth century had hand-forged shafts
and hammered heads. In 1780, tacks with cut shanks became available, but heads
continued to be hammered by hand until the advent of machine-stamped heads in the
early nineteenth century. Tacks were available in several sizes, and upholsterers stocked
them in large quantities. 83 In 1733, John Moore purchased thousands of “large tax” and
“middle tax” from the brazier Stephen Ayrault, buying 5,500 in the month of August
alone. Moore also purchased “6d
[penny] nails” and “20d
[penny] nails” on several
occasions.” source: The Uholstery and Chairmaking Trades of Eighteenth-Century Newport 1730-1790 https://repository.si.edu/…/…/ThesisJenniferJohnson2012.pdf…
