Prince-Howes Cupboard

From the collection of Jeanne C. Howes, Weston, CT

"Esther Howes told me that ABBY HOWES sold the cupboard to Wallace Nutting as he collected Pilgrim Furniture on Cape Cod in the 1920's. First he offered her $1,000 but she said "NO". Then 2 years later he returned and she let him have it for $3,000. Then she learned he had sold it to J.P. Morgan for $10,000 dollars. she tried to sue him but lost the case. It is now in the Pilgrim Furniture Collection at the Wadsworth Athenium in Hartford, Ct."      signed, JC Howes.
