Commentaires : These six early Acadian chairs were purchased from Mayfield , PEI. The raw hide webbing is original. It is believed that an elder in a family was teaching others how to build these chairs. One chair is believed to be older, and the remaining five were created to match and provide instruction to subsequent generations. Throughout the 19th century, Acadians created traditional furniture using hand tools. As with textile production, techniques and tools for making furniture were transferred from generation to generation. Side chairs with plank seats, squared legs and posts, and through mortised backs slats are the most frequently encountered type of traditional furniture. Always painted and sometimes featuring chamfered legs and posts. Some traditional furniture, such as tables, chairs, benches and chests, filled very practical purposes. They mainly show straightforward construction techniques and stylistic uniformity, as well as evidence of wear and replacement of worn parts. The set of six side chairs are located in the Doucet House at the Farmer's Bank of Rustico site. Built around 1770, the Doucet house is the oldest house in the Rustico area, and possible on all of Prince Edward Island. The residence was originally situated on Grand-Pere (now Cymbria) and was inhabited continuously by descendents of the Doucet families until 1982, when it was purchased as a summer residence. Soon it was offered by the owner for removal from his land or was slated to be torn down. The Farmer's Bank of Rustico moved the house to their site and began a full restoration in 2003. The Doucet house now houses a collection of early Acadian artefacts.
