Chair, hand carved, in shape of buffalo head, real horns, mahogany and rosewood, Scotland, 1842. This is the bigger of two similar, but not identical chairs. Sir William Drummond Stewart, the younger son of a Scottish lord, came to America in 1832. When Sir William returned to Scotland in 1839 from a tour of the American West, he brought back a few souvenirs, including exotic plants, several bison, three Indians, and his Métis guide Antoine Clement. He designed these remarkable chairs for the central hall of his Scottish estate, Murthly castle.
