Additional comments.
1. Thomas Elfe
was Charleston's most famous and successful cabinetmaker, and his surviving pieces are among the most valuable of American antiques. They can be seen in some of Charleston's historic mansions as well as the Governor's mansion in Columbia, South Carolina, and in such museums as Winterthur in Delaware, the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in North Carolina, and the Charleston Museum.
