IMPORTANT SOMERSET COUNTY, PA FARM WORK TABLE
MADE BY JACOB KNAGY
 

 (Summit Township, PA, circa 1850 –1860
(Jacob Knagy l. 1796-1883)

A counterpart to the more well-known Soap Hollow school in the northern part of the county, Jacob Knagy made country furniture in southern Somerset County at his farm carpenter shop from 1841 to 1882, with son Elias joining him in 1844 at the age of twelve.  The Knagys made furniture in the PA German tradition, usually painting, stencil decorating and dating their pieces.  This work table, of cherry wood and pine, features two different-sized drawers with the hallmark Knagy lapping edges, and turned legs of unique Knagy design. It retains its original untouched as-found surface with a rich color and wonderful wear.    Top 54” x 34”. Height 30”
